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.

Pretty Good

BruSue 3/18/2021

Pretty good microwave. The only faults we've found are that you have to push the numbers and cook methods on the key pad fairly hard for it to enter causing it to slide to the back of the counter. Being able to simply push one number and it automatically starts for that many minutes is a nice, fast function, but if you want to enter 20 seconds and you first push the 2, it starts cooking, and we just stay there and stop it after 20 seconds. Or, you can cancel and push cook, the amount of time to cook, then start. It would be nice if the cook, start and end/cancel buttons were bigger and/or a different color to visually stand out. Otherwise, it's a good size and cooks fine, if a bit faster/hot because of the increased wattage.

Fuga 3/18/2021

Microwave is generally very good.  Easy to use.  Works well.  Only slight negative is that cook time on frozen items tends to be a few seconds longer than directions - even when directions are for lower wattage than this microwave.

Dark display

Marklotus 3/3/2021

The clock/display are very dim and difficult to read from more than five feet away, not like our prior GE microwave. I scheduled a service appointment and then I was called and told that model was not eligible for service and to bring it back to Lowes. Since I waited a month to get this one, I did not want to wait again. Not a good experience!

STC403 1/13/2021

I basically only use this microwave to reheat foods. Heats much quicker and at a lower power setting than my 2005 Kenmore microwave 1200 Watt. Definitely have issues with the buttons and setting the microwave at a lower power setting. Must use too many buttons

Who would expect that the keypad would be unreadable unless you use a flashlight? That unlighted black key pad is a major design flaw. If we had known about that problem we would not have purchased it.

Not worth the money

Hardlucklu 9/17/2020

I don't like it. It doesn't compare to my last GE microwave. It lasted for ten years and was close to identical in appearance and power. Too bad it doesn't perform as well. The door sounds tinny when it closes, the interior light doesn't adequately illuminate its contents; the clock is too dim and the function buttons are too small and are difficult to see in anything but bright light, It does not come with an operation manual. It's obvious to me that this model was produced on the cheap.

Smudge Microwave

Sher0729 3/27/2020

I don't like this microwave. The only reason I purchased this microwave was it was the only replacement that would fit in the space of my initial built in microwave. I don't like that you barely touch this microwave and it leaves a smudge. Every little print shows no matter where on the microwave you touch. The controls are confusing. Dinner plate is by weight?! Who weighs what's on their plate! Other controls are just as bad.

Took ordering twice to get one to work.

Brenda3 3/10/2020

I would have rated higher but had to reorder a second microwave immediately. Waited 2 weeks to get first microwave. Got it home and plugged it in and started running and couldn't get to turn off till we unplugged it. Waited another two weeks for second microwave to come in. Works great. I do wish they would put a wall hugger plug so microwave could sit closer or wall.
