"One year old"
Island style, glass top oven/ range. Warranty expired at one year, 2 more months and the control panel is malfunctioning already. No oven. 200 dollar repair. One adult household, kept clean with light use. Ridiculous.

"Do Not Buy GE Stoves!"
Do not buy GE stoves! The stove has not worked properly since the day it was delivered. GE came out 3 times to try and repair it. When they could, the technician said it was installed wrong - in other words, it was not plugged in correctly. Really??? Then the technician said the electrical plug was not working properly. I had an electrician come out and he said that the plug was perfectly good. GE is still refusing to replace the stove. Do not believe the warranty and do not expect any customer service.

"Reset clock fiasco"
The electricity went out overnight, so I had to reset all the clocks in the house. The directions for resetting the clock on my GE electric range, as I understood them, did not work. I called GE for troubleshooting help. While waiting for a call back I went on YouTube and found out how to reset the clock. The directions in no way resembled the directions on the control panel. Not difficult, but in no way anywhere close to the directions you need. If this happens to you, go straight to YouTube for your answer and avoid the frustration. BTW, I've had this range for 2 years and 20 days and I've had to have a service repair person come about 2 months ago for something unrelated and thank god I had purchased the extended warranty, because the original warranty was for only one year.(remember when appliances came with a 3 - 5 year warranty? When did that change??) Anyway, NOT impressed with GE, will NOT be purchasing this brand again. Garbage.

Review:
"Smooth Glass Top Not so Smooth"
I have always purchased GE products as I feel they are well made, have a good warranty and are in the average price range. However, like all businesses that provide appliances for consumers GE finally went over to the dark side. My 'new' ge glass cook top stove is a shame. Only two years old, the large front right burner is badly scratched from pot use (Kind of what the appliance was purchased for) And there is a white cloud that rings the burner that will not come out no matter that I clean it bi-weekly with bar helper and soft scrub with the recommended pad. It looks unsightly and I feel the scratches are going to cause a crack in the glass. Shame on GE. I called their service center twice and was told that it is out of the warranty period so there is nothing they can or will do. They admitted that the surface irregularities are not normal but would take no action to satisfy their customer; They naturally assume we're the cause, not their inferior product. And a new glass top? $350 plus shipping. Since the glass top is the reason for purchasing this model, I can not say anything good about it. I will refrain from purchasing any GE products from here on out; I could have bought a Frigidaire for much less.

Review:
"GE leaves out a lot you need to know."
I purchased, changed over to Propane, and Installed this GE Gas Range. After you download the GE Owners Manual that does not come with the stove you will discover a few important omissions. The page that explains the Oven Door is for a door your stove will not have. The Online GE Appliances website has an instruction explaining how to remove yet another oven door, one that GE hasn't sold in 15 years. The Orifice changes needed to use Propane tell you the wrong tools you'll need, leave out any clear instructions, and just plain leave out the rest. I am very satisfied with the results of the work I did, and the GE stove now installed in my kitchen, but I've had easier Root Canal Surgery. You can contact GE Appliances for on line help but they post Saturday and Sunday hours till 6 PM EST, and that's just a lie. The tools to change the orifices in each of the four stove top burners are not what a GE Tech uses, they have a special tool for him. This leaves you doing something not unlike The Old Children's Game " Operation" except if you drop the orifice for your new GE Stove it's gone forever. Oddly enough none of the Documents GE supplies with your new stove mentions any of this. So when the instructions say 'remove the oven door' they turn that into a Catch 22, because nowhere can you discover from GE "How To Remove" your oven door . . . or re-install it once you do. I'm betting a few folks at GE Tech Services still get Belly Laughs over that one. One tool you will need to install that new GE stove, The patience of a saint. Good Luck!

"Bad"
the top scratches very easily. The left front double burner stopped working at age 2 years. When disassembled, found all the wires completely burnt out at the switch. Basically could have started a fire. Replaced the switch and all the burnt wires, the element still doesn't work. No sign of quality workmanship or materials. I would rate it junk. Do not buy.

"30" Free Standing Electric Self Cleaning Range"
I purchased Range July 2017. Feb 2018 the oven stopped working and the Burners would NOT shut off. It has been three weeks since I called GE Service Dept's authorized appliance person. I am still waiting to have my range repaired, and the Range is still turned off at the breaker due to fire hazard with burners that won't turn off.

"GE 5 burner double oven"
Purchased this range in December 2015. In January 2018 (2 years 1 month later) error code F73 shows on the display panel, an alarm goes off and the stoves stop working. Canít even set the time. GE only warrants their appliances for 1 year. Therefore I need to pay a tech to evaluate the problem and the cost of repair. After filing a complaint GE agreed to waive the cost of the part. BUT since the part is on back order it will be mid-March before the repair can be made. 2 months without the ovens! What happen to the days when a large appliance lasted 20 years? What happened to GE?! They use to be a good company. Now they manufacture defects. I will never buy another GE product again

"Stove unleveled"
I am very unhappy with the Stove I purchased. I am still paying on a stove that I am very unhappy about. The stove was not leveled when it was delivered. I did not notice that the stove was not level until months after the delivery. The Delivery people and J C Penney say there is not anything they can do about it since I have had the stove more than 60 days. Meanwhile, I am stuck with a stove that I am still paying for that is unleveled.

"Cracked glass top."
My range is less than 1 year old. Got cracks on the glass top. Called them, the customer service was rude. I was told it was cosmetic issue and not covered by warranty. They didn't want to come over and have a look. According to their website: the range with cracked top should not be used anymore until fixed. But they just called it a cosmetic issue and didn't want to take responsibility. Now I understand why GE has issue with their business. Will not buy GE product anymore.

"Just caught fire! Electrical panel burned up."
I did love this stove, and this was my second purchase of a GE flat top stove. However, last evening, we smelt something like burning plastic, went to find the source and low and behold, the electrical panel of this stove had caught fire. The stove was not in use when it did this. Thank God we went to check out the smell before it burned my kitchen down! How I have a heavily scorched wall and a useless stove, since all the electrical stuff burned up. I never had any issues with elements like some folks, but the center portion of the electrical panel is literally toast!

"Have to clean after boiling water"
Defective Smoothtop Range. Do not buy. Very disappointed with this product. If you boil water, you need to clean the stove top. Bought stainless steel pans as instructed by 1st service tech. Should have read all the negative reviews and not purchased product said the 2nd service tech. Pretty stove to look at if you never cook. Regret purchase and will not buy any product from ge again. Consumer Relations is a name only organization. They told me my complaint should be with Lowes. Lowes told me I had to deal with GE for a return authorization. Never was able to get a return authorization. Service Technicians and Consumer Relations say a dirty stove top after boiling just water is merely cosmetic. All they recommend is buy Cerama Bryte to clean the stove. Wonder if GE has stock in Cerama Bryte?

"Good Reliable Stove"
We've have been living this apartment with this stove for a few months now. It has been very reliable thus far. I have not had any problems using the stove at all. I like this face about it. It cooks my food in a normal cooking time and everything on it is very clearly labeled. However, it is not a very beautiful looking stove. It certainly does not look modern. The burners do not always stay even either. This is not a major problem, but I do have to be careful so that my food cooks evenly. It is, however, very easy to clean the stove-top. The oven is also self-cleaning, which is nice. We have never had to repair anything nor have we had any problems. I would recommend this brand. However, I wouldn't purchase it myself. It is great for the apartment, but when I am in a home again I would like something with a little bit classier look.

"Very Satisfied With My Purchase"
I purchased a GE electric stove unit model number JBS55DMBB , about three or four years ago. It is a very good electric stove. I am completely satisfied with my purchase. I have not seen as much of a reduction in my utility bill as I would have liked to, but I did see a reduction. The GE JBS55DMBB electric stove unit has lots of extra bells and whistles on that is a very nice positive attribute. I think with a few upgrades to my house my energy bill will be right down there where I expected it to be. I have qualified technician come out once a year to check out the system and make sure nothing is wrong or going bad with the system. They have never found a problem. Overall my GE JBS55DMBB electric stove unit is a great system that I would recommend to anyone that is looking to replace their old worn out system.

Review:
"Inconsistent Stove"
I've owned my GE gas stove for about 5 years now, and the only thing I can say that it does is cook my food. It has a larger front burner, for really big pots, which I like...because that's the only burner on this stove that really gets a pot of water boiling. The main things I dislike about this stove are; I went with a white finish, which I will NEVER do again. It shows absolutely everything and the finish on my stove is nearly impossible to clean, even with scouring pads. The baked on stains simply won't come off, so my stove looks dirty all the time. The burners don't heat adequately. The only burner that works on this stove is the front right burner, designed for larger pots. I can't heat more than one pot at a time, which is really frustrating. The oven itself cooks, but not consistently. Sometimes the food is burnt and other times it's still undercooked, depending on how it was placed in the oven. One side might be cooked better than the other, so it has inconsistent heating within the oven. Same issue with the broiler. Overall, I would never buy this brand of stove again or recommend it to anyone.

"My GE Glasstop Stove"
I got my stove almost 6 months ago. It is a cream colored GE Glass top. I purchased it from Badcock furniture. I like the stove, it is nice because it has a timer and a clock on it. The oven cooks very evenly. But the eye tops seem to take so long to heat up and keeping the glass top clean and stain free is nearly impossible and I am so afraid of dropping something on the top and breaking it. My spices are above my stove and because of my fear I moved them to a different location. I have been told that the cost of a replacement top is pretty high. I love that it has a self cleaning option on it.I had a GE prior to buying this one and my frig and dishwasher are GE. I would most certainly buy another GE I just do not know if I would buy a glass top again.

"great GE Electric stove"
I have had the General Electric (GE) stove for approximately 8 years. I like that the General Electric (GE) stove is a flat cook top and easy to clean after each and every use. I also like that it has an oven beneath it and that the oven and the cook top stove heats up relatively fast. I have no dislikes about the General Electric (GE) stove well except for that the top takes a while to cool down so it is possible to forget about it and burn yourself on the flat cook top but overall it is not a very big issue. I have never had to have the General Electric (GE) stove repaired or replaced. I would definitely buy the same stove brand being General Electric (GE) again because overall it has been a great stove and has lasted a very long time and still looks like new.
