Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Lousy manual

Dennis71 1/7/2021

This microwave is accompanied by a manual that was obviously written for another microwave. It does not explain the codes for the buttons for sensor cooking. Also, we once found the microwave unresponsive to any button and had to unplug and plug back in so that we could keep using it.

Wizerobe 12/31/2020

We have always used GE products! Our previous microwave (GE) was 12 years old & it was time to replace. This new one is a tad bigger than we would have liked & the interior light is dimmer. It seems to cook/heat quicker than we're used to and that's a good thing! I have found when re-heating coffee that 30 seconds is sufficient whereas using the beverage button I had a mess as it boiled over. Still getting used to it, I believe it was a good choice for a replacement.

Overheats And Shuts Off - PF Error

NopeNotToday 12/31/2020

Constantly shuts off after a few minutes of use and gives a PF error. It has plenty of clearance all around for airflow. Top of the unit becomes extremely hot to the touch.

Ron Austin 12/27/2020

We bought this to replace a 2.0 cf GE microwave almost the same as this one. It lasted 13 months. Warranty was 12 months. We use our microwave for warming our grand daughter's bottle and warming up leftovers. Real disappointed that the previous only outlasted the warranty by a month and GE said tough luck folks, you should have bought the extended warranty. Not impressed

we have been very pleased with our purchase. It's got a large capacity for defrosting or even cooking a family size micro/bake meal. The bell is not annoyingly loud and only repeats one ding as a reminder that something is still in the oven.

GE Microwave Oven

Cpt Lou 12/18/2020

We do not have the Microwave Oven in it's permanent location yet, but have been using it just to see how we like it. We like the push button, to open door, and the nice size turntable. It has many preset cook time settings, and the 30 sec add on button. These are all features we use frequently. and really like. I would recommend this Microwave for any small family, it is only two of us, and it is the perfect size for us.

LisaTucson 12/16/2020

We are happy with the extra height that this microwave has compared to our older one. It has some fast start buttons for 30 seconds, 1, 2, 3, etc minutes, which are also helpful. If you leave something in the microwave, it chirps at you after a certain amount of time and at regular intervals, which is a nice reminder for me.

Worthless again 12/16/2020

The first thing we tried cooking the microwave shut off. After waiting about 10 minutes it came back to life, then died again. I returned it for another and it died as well. I returned for a different brand and it works fine.
