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.

actionjack 2/18/2021

Replaced my old GE. The buttons are harder to operate on the new one. Reheat function burns the food. The old one did not. Now this one is starting to make noises and the light flickers like it is about to fail. Exactly like my old before it died.

This microwave replaces one almost exactly like it made in 2008 that was 100 percent serviceable until some catastrophic failure. Would have liked exact size replacement but this one has been acceptable. Controls are identical and make transition effortless. Would buy again with out hesitation.

mirvin 2/13/2021

We bought this new GE microwave oven to replace the one we used for nearly 20 years. This one does a great job, its just too bad we couldn't get a 1450 watt unit at this size like the old one. Can't beat the price either! If this microwave serves us half as well as the other, we'll be more than happy!

PF (Power Failure) - this readout often occurs

Lon2 2/9/2021

1. I like the microwave sensor feature. The microwave appearance is great 2. However, frequently the microwave simply goes dead. After sitting a few minutes the "PF" readout lights up. Then if I reset the clock, all features work again. Unplugging the microwave at the wall plugin does not turn it back on. The microwave is on its own separate breaker: the breaker has not flipped and flipping the breaker on and off does not turn the micro wave back on. The only cure appears to wait until the "PF" reading lights up. 3. After power failure the right top surface of the microwave is warm to the touch.
