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.

PamelaATL 5/5/2020

I have concerns about how loud the microwave is for a new unit. The door is also clunky. May be the price point I selected.

Looks Nice

Muddchick79 4/24/2020

I purchased my microwave from Home depot. I purchased it from the reviews I received. Looks nice, very big in the inside but I am now finding out that its loud. At first I thought it was broken. Why when you put something in it and you turn it out the vent/fan comes on and just very loud. We only use it to heat stuff up so I decided to keep it. I also notice when you have the light on the bottom and if you open the inside door the inside is super hot , but my husband told me its normal due to the kind of light it is. Gives off the heat. But over all if you dont mind the loudest of it its very nice.

Bonnie San Diego 4/7/2020

Our microwave is a replacement that we got 1 month ago. It is working very well. I like th fan and light features over my stove. The one feature I'd like to be different is that I have to open the door if I want to add time to an item already in the microwave. The microwave wants me to remove what's in the oven before starting again.

Grille vent poor quality parts

TraceyF 4/7/2020

When you read something is assembled in China should we be entitled to expect something can last - NO. The plastic grille vent for this model is kept in place by 3 tiny plastic hooks which have now sheared of & to replace a piece of plastic for same shoddy quality they want $93 before tax? I didn't choose GE an appliance package was installed as part of a custom home, I expect it was the cheapest for developers to install?

Great Microwave, Bad Bulb

UkiyoPhoto 4/1/2020

I really like this microwave, it came with my new build home as part of the builders package. I'm only deducting a star because the Surface Lamp Light that shines above the stove has already burnt out after only having this microwave for less than 2 weeks after moving into our brand new home.

BexD 3/30/2020

We barely use anything but the surface light and vent. Would love if you could turn off the beeping sound with buttons and lessen the insane brightness of the clock. Seems to hold in radiation at the door pretty well, according to the meter I have. Although, since it constantly emits radio frequency at someone's head as they cook, I would like it to be zero leakage.

Newsie 3/24/2020

The microwave rattles and vibrates loudly while running. We have to hold the microwave handle or put a hand on the glass to muffle the noise and loud vibrations, I thought GE built good appliances I'm mistaken. This appliance came with our newly constructed home, we didn't have a choice

GE Microwave replacement

Trembelo 2/11/2020

Had to replace like model that lasted for 2 years and 1 month.Same form fit and function. The original was not installed properly (new home builder fault) thus causing the vent operation to impend steam and smoke transfer to outside. Now properly installed venting is much better.
