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.

Bakula 11/11/2020

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

JEMAT 11/8/2020

After installation, there's a problem with the door shutting completely and of course, the microwave won't run if the door isn't shut. Day ONE of buying the appliance. Have to contact a REAL person to try to troubleshoot. Robocalls do not work!

Quiet and bright stove lights

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.

Brooks 11/2/2020

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.

Allan42 10/20/2020

This replaces the exact model I purchased 16 years ago. The only problem I had with this replacement is that the frame had completely changed and it took a lot more holes to attach it to the wall. It would have been nice if it were completely compatible with the old one since it is t he same exact model number. But I was happy to find the exact measurements still being manufactured since it is a built in Over-the-range model.

This microwave is an excellent addition to our appliances. What drew us to it was the size - it fits most microwave ware and cooks fast. Especially helpful over the range, because the kitchen is small and it definitely freed up counter space.

EveDesigns 10/14/2020

This is a perfect microwave -- Simple, Basic, and EASY to use. It does not have bells and whistles. And who needs those in a microwave? Especially older adults. I just want hot food. This was an exact replacement for one I bought 28 months earlier -- 2 yard, 4 months. So they don't last long. But they are inexpensive. And SIMPLE to figure out and use.

Love this Microwave! It replaced the one we had from 1992 & is a newer model but same size & all the same features. Love the express cook buttons. Even though our old microwave did not have a turntable (it had a metal rack) I like that you can turn the table off for specific dishes. Only comment for improvement would be to brighten up/bold the writing for the buttons Still trying to get used to new button positions and I have a hard time finding the correct one.

Second purchase of JVM3160DFBB

Sox Fan 10/8/2020

I bought the same model two years ago. My family loves its features and its ease of use. Its style also matches other GE appliances we own. By affordably replacing the prior unit with the same GE model, I avoided having to install a new wall mounting bracket and drilling additional holes in the cabinet that supports the unit. That's a plus. What I'm hoping is that my new JVM3160DFBB lasts longer than the old one did.

Had to replace last one too soon

Sox Fan 10/7/2020

I bought the same model two years ago. One month ago it started exhibiting a problem that some on the Internet have traced to a defective door switch: each time I'd turn on the microwave, it caused the circuit to trip. But the warranty is only one year! I was tempted not to buy another, but (a) I found a second at a very low price (enough to justify buying a third-party extended warranty), (b) when working, this model has all the features I want, and (c) by buying the same model, I didn't have to install any new mounting brackets or drill new holes in cabinets. Let's hope this one lasts longer than the last GE machine.

I love my new microwave. I use it a lot. I am lost without a microwave!! There is a feature I wished it had though. My last GE microwave had a 2lb defrost button, which I used quite frequently. However, the defrost buttons I have do the job just as well. I was a little disappointed that we had to drill new holes for the over the stove mount.

llllllooiiuu 10/5/2020

This is the 3rd one we purchased of the same model. We didn't go with a different model or brand so we didn't have to put more holes in the wall for the mounting bracket. each one has lasted about 2 years which really isn't very good.

I'm familiar with this model and very satisfied. However, it can be difficult to see the words and numbers on the pads On the black model during times the kitchen is not brightly lit. I think I should have chosen A stainless or white model.
