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.

guitarkevin 5/6/2020

So far we love the microwave, It's quiet. The slate finish is excellent. The only issue I've had so far is the popcorn setting. There are 3 modes 2.0 oz, 2.5 oz and 3.0 oz. We popped a 3.0 oz of standard popcorn and it didn't come close to popping everything in the bag. But then I popped a 3.2 oz bag of kettle corn and it was perfect

Microwave works fine as far as microwaves go but from fresh out of the box several buttons on the panel doesn't work. I had a request to repair Thru GE only to be told the parts are on back order.

NO GE APPLIANCES FOR ME!

cchips38 5/5/2020

The only reason I bought the microwave was because it matched our other appliances; otherwise, I would have bought a different brand. Our previous unit was the same basic model, with a slightly different model number, but it died after less than 18 months, and it would have cost almost as much to repair as the new one. One of the door switches failed which caused the control board to short out. This is not my first experience with premature failure of a GE appliance - the other was a 3 year old refrigerator which had been used for only a few weeks each year. Both times, the appliances were already in the house when we bought it. The microwave was in a new house which we bought in October 2018.

FORCED TO BUY

Wes Baumstarck 4/26/2020

We were forced to buy another GE microwave to keep with the same color scheme of Slate. We bought a JVM6175EK2ES about 2 years ago and it was not working right, would heat up in the inside but not warm food. I talked to dealer who we bought from and they said we need to call GE and they priced us a new one but would be about 2 weeks out. I started checking around and everybody was 2 to 3 weeks out. We found this new and slightly different one 90 miles away so drove and got it. Thought since microwaves had same dimensions and same brand would use same brackets and not have to drill more holes in the wall but of course that was not so. Took apart old microwave and it was a bad magnetron which is a good portion of the price of a new microwave and wasn't worth fixing being it has been acting up for past year. All in all very disappointed with our GE products.

Completely dead after 2 years

rmrm 4/5/2020

Worked fine for 2 years. Completely dead now, after just 2 years. For a $300 microwave, not worth the $100 charge for someone to come look at it, which wouldn't include parts and service. Will just have to buy another.

Replacement

Randman From VA 4/2/2020

After 10 years of dependable use our latest GE Over the Range Microwave died a noble death. It was having continuous running issues and shorted its circuit breaker. This told us it was time to replace the old one. We immediately shopped for a comparable GE replacement. Wife found one at similar size and change the color "of course." I ensured it was what we needed for our daily use. It was just installed and we immediately cooked tonight's dinner in it. We look forward to another 10+ years with this new microwave.

Microwave

Bos345 4/1/2020

Microwave slate does not match the slate color of my oven and ref. Went to install the microwave and the bracket that came with it did not work because the vent is on top of the microwave so had to purchase a different bracket. The additional bracket cost $130 to extend the microwave outside the cabinet.

It was really important to me that the light one uses when cooking on the stove be in the front of the microwave hood, and it is! Wonderful microwave. Very easy to use. Doesn't have everything the fancier models do, but for what we use a microwave for (reheating coffee and leftovers) it works wonderfully!!!!!!

Microwave

Tules 3/19/2020

Purchased my 1st EFES model Jan 2016 it lasted exactly 3 years my husband put a new fuse in and replaced a part on the door latch 1st time use after fuse was replaced it went out again. The microwave had minimum use, as our kids are grown and we are fixers but on this we choose to buy another 1 when they went on sale i have slate appliances so selection is limited. We are hoping the recent purchase will last a few years longer I guess its a good thing they go on sale and they are relatively cheap I guess thats why they say you get what you pay for. Appliances certainly aren't made to last anymore.
