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.

Ron43 10/15/2020

The features are exactly as my previous GE unit that lasted me 10 years, and used constantly. The quality instilled by GE makes me keep coming back for a variety of appliances. Have been a GE user for over 50 years. The quality is there. Thanks.

Simple, basic, easy!

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.

Mommalisalong 10/11/2020

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.

eitram81 10/6/2020

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.

Same mounting bracket

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.

LennyKNewCassel 9/30/2020

My previous GE microwave ovens could be programmed for two distinct cycles(i.e. two different times at two differenct power levels), this one can only do one cycle. it does what a microwave is supposed to do, just one cycle at a time.

My first one was installed by lowes and it was simply put, DEAD. It did not work. Very upset. Should not have happened. Quality Control? Second one is fine so far. Not I'm wondering if I should have purchased insurance. But it's been almost a week and it seems o.k. this replaced built in that was old.

Nanny55 9/23/2020

We love our new microwave. Nice big turntable and no rack inside which is nice. The light inside is also a nice feature. Only downside is that the touch pad is very difficult to see unless the lighting is very bright. Could just be our sight isn't what it used to be but I think the printing on it should be a brighter white lettering for better bus ability. Other than that we love it!

I really like the microwave, but I can hardly read the buttons. They are gray on black, and even in good light (worse in dim), I cannot read the text. I had to make cheat sheet to put next to it.
