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.

Slightly difficult to install, but I did change brands of above the range microwaves. So, I had to measure fir new holes. The microwave is very quite and heats up well. Greatly recommend this microwave, even after just two weeks of using it.

Exactly as advertised

R520 12/30/2020

The oven is fine, measurements were correct and fit as anticipated. My only suggestion is Product is as advertised and operated fine after a month. My only suggestion is better clarity with the template. With a normal cabinet having side and middle supports on the underside, it is virtually impossible to "lay" the template properly. I ended up having to measures from the template and working from inside the cabinet. I suggest you provide an inside template with the cabinet center lines as the point of reference

We have been using the same model for 3 to 4 years without any issue. The old one got damaged by kitchen remodeling. We have been really satisfied with our old GE microwave model, that is why picked up the same model again.

Cooks unevenly and failed after 5 years

JohnDA 12/28/2020

Noticed from the start that food in the center of the heating area would burn. Should have called for a warranty service but, foolishly, did not. Now, after roughly four years of use, it has failed. It may have been a dud, but based on my experience with this u it, I do not recommend.

Jasminesweet 12/28/2020

I really love the feature of being able to turn off the revolving turn table,also enjoy the feature of bring able to adjust lighting. When I searched for a new over the range microwave I liked the 13" turntable which is larger than my existing one. As I mentioned the added features and the awesome price and reviews made my mind up to purchase. Also being a Vet and getting a additional discount also helps. I'm hoping this model gives me many years of worry free usage.

Disappointed

jxs4 12/27/2020

This microwave replaced another GE microwave with the same wattage; however, it is not nearly as powerful. It takes much longer to cook and heat things up than our previous GE. Also, my previous microwave had an "Add 30 Sec" button that added time to cooking only; this microwave has the same button, but it works for the timer and for cook time. So, if you are not using the timer, then it applies to cook time; but, if you have a timer set and then try to use it for cook time, it alters your timer by 30 seconds and not your cook time. This is very difficult to get used to after having a previous GE microwave did not work this way.

Rm62 12/23/2020

We replaced the 1400 with the new 1600. It works, close to being the same but not quite as "Hot" and the buttons push really hard. 70yr old mother has difficulty using the buttons. Very bright under lights, large turn table, easy to install, again just really hard to push the buttons.

Drop in quality...

FabriGeek 12/23/2020

We purchased our 1st GE microwave (same model number) nearly seven years ago, and it worked OK. Disappointed that it failed in less than 10 years (In comparison, our Kenmore dishwasher was built in 1994 and is still going strong). When it failed, I was in a hurry to replace it (I had been out of town on travel & only home for three days) so I bought the same model number to ensure a quick swap. In the seven years that we had our original JVM3160, the quality of construction has dropped. The molded plastic parts appear to be thinner, the fan is noisier, and the overall fit/finish is not as good as the one it replaced. Moreover, while GE appears to have taken these cost-cutting steps in refining the design of this microwave, they've done nothing to address the most glaring problem: The touch pad is difficult to read in anything but a brightly lit room. Having a backlit display would have been a HUGE improvement - but it would appear the bean counters at GE are as stingy as ever. I only hope this lasts as long or longer that the unit it replaced - but I have my doubts.

Ronald Kristen 12/22/2020

We previously owned a GE Microwave which we purchased new in 2000. It stopped working and we purchased the current GE microwave which is similar to the one we were replacing. So far the operation of the microwave has been good. The installation was made difficult because the template for cutting the new holes for under cabinet installation was difficult to position properly and to hold into position.
