Please note that we do not arrange delivery unless it is to a New Hampshire location. However, you can either pick up the merchandise yourself or arrange to have it picked up by another company that can pick up your merchandise at our New Hampshire warehouse on your behalf.

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.

I bought this 2 years and 3 months ago and it just blew out the other day. Stopped working. When my husband opened the light bulb compartment to remove the bulbs to give to a friend he found the screws and the door hinge cheaply made.

I had a GE then other brands. The new Other Brand doesnt even have a timer What were they thinking? Went with GE again. Express Cook does it all and effortlessly.

11/24/2018

I bought this as a replacement for a similar GE microwave. This one has a few cosmetic issues. The numbers on the clock readout are super close together and makes it difficult to read the minutes versus the seconds. Also the font color on the function keys is so dark that you cannot see the words without having a light nearby.

Very good basic microwave

11/16/2018

This is a great no frills model. We bought it because it was most similar to our previous model and we didnt have to change any of the venting or mounting hardware. It does a great job heating our food. Some features have changed for the worse. We dont like the clock which is difficult to read because the numbers are so close together. We also dont like that the buttons have to be pressed very hard. And it has an unfortunate feature that if theres too long of a delay after you put food in it wont turn on - you have to open and close the door first. I also miss the reminder timer function of the previous model.

This is a good purchase for a basic over-the -stove microwave. One new feature I appreciate is when using the Timer it reminds you to insert the food. I have had a problem mixing the Timer and Cook Time and have used Cook Time without placing food in the unit and destroyed my previous microwave. The things we do when we get in a hurry...

Nice microwave for the price

11/15/2018

Weve had this about three months and a few things have grown to irritate us: the display windows character lines are too close together making it difficult to read the current time and/or amount of time remaining on your cycle the lettering on the individual control buttons are dimnot enough contrast with the black background making them difficult to read without turning on the bright overhead kitchen lights the night light setting of the two-stage light is still too bright to be considered a night light. Neither light setting allows clear visibility to the dimly rendered control panel buttons. Otherwise its works well is pretty quiet compared to our old model has 6 one-touch settings and the add 30 seconds button is used way more than I thought it would be.

I bought this to replace my 18 year old GE and so far I am quite happy with it. The buttons are not the same and it takes awhile to get use to them I have to press a little harder than the other one but I am learning. I do wish that the button lite up to make it easier to see in the dark. But all in all I am happy with it and glad I purchased it because it was a great buy. I have all GE appliances in my kitchen and I am sure I will be replacing other ones soon.

So far so good

11/9/2018

We replaced a model that drove us crazy with all its beeping. This one seems much quieter when the food is ready the display shows food is done and there is a much more pleasant tone. The display is bright and much easier to read the under cabinet light is very bright which is nice to have this much light showing up on the stovetop. We have only used this for one day so we a havent tried all the features. The potato setting didnt cook a large Russet but programming for cooking time worked nicely. The exhaust fan is much quieter and seems to pull more air than the old one.

11/7/2018

Great purchase for the one who wants to save on a budget. I recommend changing the design to quiet the door close on the microwave as it is very loud. The whole house can hear it and if someone wants to heat up something in the middle of the night closing the microwave door wakes up the whole house.

good reliability ratings but shoddy mechanical

11/5/2018

I bought this to replace an older GE JVM1850 that lasted 11 years. The main reason for choosing GE again was the high reliability rating this model got from Consumer Reports time will tell if this new 3160 model is as good or better than our old 1850. But I would say the vent on the microwave that connects to the existing ductwork is quite shoddy and gets bent easily during installation. Also installing the charcoal filter took a long time because it goes behind a grill that touches the microwave door. It only took an hour and a dozen attempts until the grill could be put back without interfering with the door opening and closing freely. Not a great design. I can only hope that the electronics in the microwave are much higher quality and engineering than the mechanical design.

Keypad not user friendly with non sensual placement of buttons with hard to read labels and clock is useless--spacing too close together so a 6 and an 8 look the same because the colon is too close. Dimensions also messed up - 1/2 inch deeper than my old one. Want my old one back.

Last one I hope

10/15/2018

In 2.5 years this is the fifth one of the same model that I have installed in the same kitchen. 1. Broken door glass right out of the box. 2. Missing mounting nut in top of the microwave. 3. Ran good for about 2.5 years then quit working. 4. Bought same model again so installation would be easy. Installed it and when I plugged it in it started running and the only way I could shut it off was to unplug it.........brought it back for a different one. 5. Got new one out of the box and found it was dented. I thought the dent would be hidden after installation but it does show.....but not too bad.
