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.

Failed after about 16 months of ownership

Sad Sister 11/20/2020

i've bought 2 of these -- just purchased the second one today only because i needed it right away for thanksgiving, and i wanted a black finish and this is the only one i could find locally that fits the available space over my stove. my first one (same model) failed after only 16 months of use. there are just 2 of us using it, so it wasn't getting extreme use by any means. i wouldn't have bought it again, but as i said, i was in a bind. this time, i bought the extended warranty. based on previous experience, i'll need it. :(

Difficult to Replace

Bblair 11/18/2020

I bought the mod. JMV3160DF5BB to replace a 10 yr. old mod. JVM1750DP1BB and was disappointed that various attachments were relocated making installation difficult. The top mounting attachments required drilling new cabinet holes, the wall mounting bracket tabs were changed so the existing one could not be used, and the vent location was moved slightly. I have no complaints with the microwave itself after installation.

Nikkishoes 11/17/2020

I really dislike the fact that there is no backlight to see the microwave buttons. You need to have a bright light near it to see which buttons to activate. The microwave panel shows all finger prints and dish rag marks. My old 20 yr old GE microwave was wonderful. The quality is cheaper also.

Dog island mayor 11/17/2020

Very Quiet

GLL5 11/16/2020

I really like the overall design of the microwave, but am still getting used to the placement of some of the control/feature buttons as they aren't in an intuitive spot to me. I can't believe how quietly this microwave operates compared to the one we replaced. The touchpad seems a little harder to push than my old microwave, but it is probably just a matter of getting used to the more precise touch needed. I've only been using it a little over a month now, but have noticed that it heats up a little slower than my previous microwave.

Good basic microwave , horrible clock display

Wchimes 11/16/2020

The microwave is fine . But the clock display can't be read across the room as the numbers are too close together. I haven't read any other reviews, but I have to think his has been mentioned before . We don't like to stand next to a running microwave as they all leak a little ( and yes I tested this one too) but seriously , across the room you can't tell what the timer say. It's a little thing to complain about, but it's also a little thing to get right in the first place. Everything else is fine , we installed it ourselves with no problem in a few hours.

GE - DONT MAKE INSTALL EEDLESSLY DIFFICULT

TEX2020 11/14/2020

Purchased to replace similar GE model that I installed 7 years ago after it lost power. Was not excited about buying another GE given limited life of last one but figured installation would be easier. It wasn't. Rear mounting bracket has changed along with location of top mounting bolts. To make it worse, template to mark and drill the new cabinet holes is made of thin paper that's been folded over a dozen times. Seriously, how much more would it cost to make it out of sturdy cardboard?

It is less noisy than previous model we had from GE. The door is much easier to operate compared to the old GE model. Hoping this will last more than 2 years. The previous GE model died in 2 years.

Total piece of JUNK!!!!!

Allan3395 11/10/2020

This microwave oven literally "Burns" everything in the middle of it in about a 3" diameter in the center of the oven. We had hardly used the oven for the first couple of months after we bought it and so did not realize this fact until time had went by. I had the GE repair people out twice and both times they used the old "everything is operating with factory specifications" line on me. I called both Best Buy and GE and spoke with customer service operators and their supervisors and both told me

Dwork01 11/5/2020

Our old microwave broke so we needed a new one. We are in love with this one. It is so quiet we often have to double check to make sure we turned it on. And we wanted the light to be over the stove and not at the back. We can actually see what we are cooking now! It's the little things that make this microwave amazing.

We just installed our third microwave of this model. 1st one lasted over 12 years, then stopped heating. I believe the magnetron went out. We got a 2nd one, but it only lasted a little over two years. Seems like a good microwave, so hopefully this one last many years like the 1st.

Great Unit

Nam67 10/21/2020

We purchased the early version of the this unit in 1998 when we overhauled the whole kitchen. The original unit lasted us for over twenty-two years without one service call or break down. We used the old unit four or five times a day without a problem..So when the unit died we went to Lowe's and got the new version of this unit..The only change we had to make was to swap out the old mounting plate and instill the new one..The new unit was up and running in less then one hour..Can only hope the new unit is as good.
