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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Great Features

Submitted by Park Ridge Customer - 3/20/2021

This GE over-the-range microwave is very modern-looking, has an easy-to-read functional key pad and operates well except that there is a minor rattling problem during operation. I noticed this right away and thought it would subside; but it didn't. ABT's is no longer carrying this model number.

Just what we needed

Submitted by JohnL411 - 3/3/2021

The Microwave was an easy installation in place of our old one. The features and usability of the oven are just what we needed and works great. It updates everything we had in our old model and more. Less buttons to push to do all our frequent cooking options.

Great Features

Submitted by penmo - 2/17/2021

The light is nice and bright. It is easy to see the whole stove top when the light is on high and the lower level is an excellent way to use the stove top controls without needing the higher setting. The vent works well and the filters are easily accessible for cleaning and maintaining. The power is adequate for the types of dishes I microwave.

Safety Issues

Submitted by Rico8 - 2/10/2021

I'm beyond disappointed! I've never experienced what occurred with this product. I've attempted to reach out to the company, but to no avail. Less than a month of owning the product, I placed a frozen dinner, following the instructions, in the microwave. Halfway through the cooking time, I heard a loud "pop" explosion noise. Investigating, everything appeared fine so I proceeded with the cooking time recommendation. Upon removing the dinner, I immediately became aware of a large black smudge smeared on the back wall. I proceeded to clean the area, but had no success in removing it. Although I did manage to minimize the black smudge quite a bit, I was not successful in removing it completely and have been left with a brand new product that has been defaced. I'm not using the product as often as I'd like because of fear that the next time the explosion will be on a bigger scale.

Drop in replacement for my old GE unit!

Submitted by GMDay - 2/7/2021

I bought this model because, according to the installation instructions, it was similar to my 20 year old GE microwave that had failed. I wanted to utilize the existing wall mounting bracket and the exhaust fan outlet from the old unit. Everything fit perfectly, making this essentially a plug and play installation. The new microwave is great and I especially like the LED display - the old plasma display was getting dim and hard to read. The new unit has all the features I need except there is no night light feature which could have been easily added with a little bit of additional software. Oh well, that's a minor gripe. Otherwise, the unit is great and serves my needs quite well!

Submitted by Doughcook - 12/29/2020

We've always purchased GE products and this unit was a replacement for a much older GE microwave. We got a great price on it at Lowe's and installed ourselves as it was almost a direct match for our previous GE Profile microwave. We were completely satisfied.

Functions Well

Submitted by TMNC - 12/6/2020

Product is too new to me to give it a long term evaluation. However, it is the replacement for a GE microwave that I had for 20 years. It fits perfectly over the stove where my old one fit and aside from working well it looks good. Hopefully it will last as long, or nearly as long as the previous version of this microwave.

Better Design

Submitted by almdmb25 - 5/28/2020

The microwave that came with our house (also a GE Space Saver), died after roughly 15 years of heavy use. We purchased a newer model in the GE Space Saver line. The difference is night and day. Easy to install (being the same model family, we were able to reuse the hanging bracket and bolts). It has powerful lighting in one area with a broad spread rather than the 2 lights in 2 locations on the bottom. Ventilation over the stove works wonderfully and being that the vents are on top, air will not blow in our faces as we cook. The turn table can be turned on/off (so we will not have to remove the turn table when needed). I love that there is a sensor to notify us when we need to replace/clean filters. The clock read out is bolder and we did not have to mess with AM/PM setting (the previous model had AM/PM which was dwarfed and not legible). It is quieter than the previous model and it heats food/liquid beautifully. We are very pleased.

Bad unit - magnatron will give out

Submitted by burn35 - 5/18/2020

I've owned this microwave a little over a year and of course the magnatron goes out right after the warranty ends. Of course. It will cost me $390 to fix which I might as well just replace the whole unit at this point. Move on - this is one is a waste of money.

We're in love with microwave!

Submitted by Blueridgedreamer - 5/10/2020

Got this as a replacement for a Frigidaire model that didn't outlast its warranty and boy what a difference! Unlike the Frigidaire, this microwave has a door that opens and closes gently and a pleasant chime that tells you when the food is ready. We love the exhaust feature that keeps the unit from getting steamy inside and it's quiet motor. We find the light above the stove to be adequate and yet soft enough not to interrupt the peace of the kitchen at night. Plus it has a night light option. The door hinge needs very little space to open making it a great unit for tight spaces, which was essential for our kitchen. We got this unit in white to match our white GE stove and couldn't be more pleased with it!

Submitted by Pamie 83 - 3/25/2020

Submitted by D Boy - 3/22/2020

So far so good. We installed it ourselves. Definitely a two person job though. of course had to drill new holes for brackets, but the directions made that easy. Looks great and works as it should so far. The under hood light is placed in the back but provides enough light for stove surface. Fan is kinda loud but pulls a lot of air, more than our old machine.
