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.

AZGirl58 4/17/2020

my microwave seems to be working fine. I noticed there is a slight delay after I push start but perhaps that is just the way this one operates. It does heat my food/drink as expected and is easy to keep clean. Overall, pleased with my purchase.

Completely dead after 2 years

rmrm 4/5/2020

Worked fine for 2 years. Completely dead now, after just 2 years. For a $300 microwave, not worth the $100 charge for someone to come look at it, which wouldn't include parts and service. Will just have to buy another.

Replacement

Randman From VA 4/2/2020

After 10 years of dependable use our latest GE Over the Range Microwave died a noble death. It was having continuous running issues and shorted its circuit breaker. This told us it was time to replace the old one. We immediately shopped for a comparable GE replacement. Wife found one at similar size and change the color "of course." I ensured it was what we needed for our daily use. It was just installed and we immediately cooked tonight's dinner in it. We look forward to another 10+ years with this new microwave.

Microwave

Bos345 4/1/2020

Microwave slate does not match the slate color of my oven and ref. Went to install the microwave and the bracket that came with it did not work because the vent is on top of the microwave so had to purchase a different bracket. The additional bracket cost $130 to extend the microwave outside the cabinet.

Light enough for self installation if you're handy at that type of thing. Runs very quiet. Cooking times are spot on. The fingerprint resistant gray slate was a perfect color for our kitchen.

Lauren13 3/21/2020

It was really important to me that the light one uses when cooking on the stove be in the front of the microwave hood, and it is! Wonderful microwave. Very easy to use. Doesn't have everything the fancier models do, but for what we use a microwave for (reheating coffee and leftovers) it works wonderfully!!!!!!

Microwave

Tules 3/19/2020

Purchased my 1st EFES model Jan 2016 it lasted exactly 3 years my husband put a new fuse in and replaced a part on the door latch 1st time use after fuse was replaced it went out again. The microwave had minimum use, as our kids are grown and we are fixers but on this we choose to buy another 1 when they went on sale i have slate appliances so selection is limited. We are hoping the recent purchase will last a few years longer I guess its a good thing they go on sale and they are relatively cheap I guess thats why they say you get what you pay for. Appliances certainly aren't made to last anymore.

It's OK

bmixer 3/15/2020

It works OK. Would like inverter controlled power levels vs. full on and off. Also would like to program two different cook times, each at a different power level. For example first bring a food item up to temperature at full power and then finish cooking at a lower power level.

Zellda 3/14/2020

This particular microwave is not reliable. I had it only 2.5 years. Had it repaired in the first year and now in year 2 it went out again. Continually tripping the circuit breaker when I turned it on. So now just replaced it. Hoping for better longevity

Jeffthechef56 3/8/2020

2nd Adora purchase,first one died GE fixed,within year died again...GE gave $ voucher and I purchased another.The slate color compliments our granite counter tops and and accents the mission style cabinets we have.GE makes a fine product and stands behind what they sell. We have their complete Adora set in slate and never been happier.
