    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.

    Iffy

    Pforphlol 6/15/2022

    I received this from the warranty company as replacement for he previous model which went after about 3 years. It is almost identical to that model, with exception of the surface light, which is now 1 light in the center, where the old one was separate lights on each side. It cooks decently, but the buttons are very hard to press, and I dont like that you can't set the power level until after selecting the cook time. I am generally underwhelmed by over-the-range microwaves, which only seem to last for me, at best, 4 years, and are a pain to replace.

    Quality over everything 4/7/2022

    This replacement microwave from American Homeshield is a big downgrade from my previous one. I had this one for less than 2 months and the lights went out already and trying to heat food is literally a task in itself when almost hurting your fingers while pushing the poor quality buttons. I should've upgraded. This microwave will hopefully last a year with 6 people using it regularly.

    Overall happy with the microwave, replaced an older broken GE. Reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the buttons have to pushed hard for them to register unlike the old one it replaced

    Piece of crap - used 7 months

    Schmu 12/27/2021

    WHEN it worked was incredibly LOUD and range light very weak. This was installed new in house prior to puchase and used lightly for 7 months before it stopped heating. Everything "works" (lights, fan, turntable) just stopped heating.

    Joel1556 11/30/2021

    This oven replaced an 18 year old Kenmore/LG similar item. The GE operation is slightly different but my wife and I are learning how to operate it. This oven only has 1 surface light but it is bright enough to be useful at illuminating the stove top while cooking. Mounting was nearly the same as the Kenmore so only had to enlarge 1 upper cabinet hole for it to mount and it was easy to connect to existing roof vent hardware. It takes two people to mount it after moving stove to the side.

    Replacement of old unit

    Tiredofpickingnames 2/18/2021

    We had this microwave as a replacement for our 25 year old GE that finally failed. So far so good, although it takes a bit longer than the old one to heat to the same level (hence, 4 stars). But honestly, we only use it to warm up food so we barely notice the few extra seconds it takes. It is roomy inside and not too noisy, although I would definitely not say it is quiet.

    Love the built in two speed range fan control

    Tx Tom 1/28/2021

    This microwave is elegant, reliable and easy to use. Having the range fan control and lighting built in is very convenient and safer than trying to find a bottom somewhere just above the burners.

    Very easy to use

    Had to replace my old microwave and was looking for something similar. This one is very easy to use and almost looks like my older one.

    Brand NEW!

    StohrJr 12/10/2020

    It's hard to review a product's performance when it is "NEW" but here are a few items I noticed right away. Display is white light and my other appliances have blue lights which is preferred. Instructions on how to use are vague and I had to search for better instructions and still wish some buttons were programable, like the popcorn button, my popcorn takes about 2 minutes and 30 seconds to completely cook and when I hit the popcorn button I think it only cooks for 2 minutes which wastes a lot of kernels. Reheating, also is not intuitive like my previous microwave was. I think a review 1 year from now will give buyers a better perspective on this product. For the price I feel it is a good value but that is to be seen in a year or more. Not sure if I would recommend this product yet.
