GE Appliance Repair & Warranty

GE

With a storied history dating back to the 19th century, General Electric has been a household name for generations. Given their longevity and reputation for producing reliable, efficient products, GE appliances are common fixtures in homes across America.

If you’re one of the millions who rely on a GE appliance to maintain a comfortable standard of living, it’s important to understand the extent of your appliance’s warranty coverage and options for extended coverage. This can save you a significant amount of money, time, and aggravation if your machine suddenly stops functioning as it should.

GE Appliance Warranty Repair Coverage

With a product line as expansive as GE’s, it’s no surprise that the precise terms of their appliance warranties are not one-size-fits-all. It’s always best to consult your appliance’s owner’s manual or contact GE’s customer service line for model-specific information. That said, here is some general information to help you get a handle on the probable extent of GE coverage.

GE provides a one-year manufacturer’s warranty for most products. These include:

  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers
  • Electric and gas ranges
  • Cooktops and hoods
  • Built-in ovens
  • Dishwashers
  • Wine chillers
  • Garbage disposals and compactors
  • Washing machines and dryers

GE’s warranty will cover all costs associated with repairing or replacing any defective product or part within that window. After the first year, GE may provide additional coverage for specific product components. These details for each product are too numerous to describe in full here, but let’s look at an example.

The Best Home Warranty Service

A built-in GE refrigerator will have a one-year warranty that covers the entire product, as described above. For an additional four years, GE may cover parts and labor necessary to repair the refrigerating sealed system only. This means GE would replace the compressor, condenser, evaporator, and connected tubing, but not necessarily other components, such as electrical circuitry.

What a GE Manufacturer’s Warranty Doesn’t Cover

GE’s warranty will cover only problems that arise from defective materials or workmanship. GE will not cover damage that arises from misuse, abuse, or improper installation. It will not cover products that have been harmed by electrical surges, accidents, fire, flood, or other disaster. Using a GE appliance in a commercial setting will void the manufacturer’s warranty, as will modifying the appliance after purchase.

Finally, it’s important to note that GE’s warranty covers only damage that impairs the appliance’s performance. The company will not cover cosmetic damage, such as dents or scratches.

GE Appliance Extended Warranty Coverage

So, how can you maintain your GE appliances after the manufacturer’s warranties have expired?

Many companies provide their own extended warranty coverage, but GE does not—at least not any longer. Since the early 2000s, an absence of a GE extended warranty program has required owners of GE appliances to pursue extended service plans through a third-party company.

This actually presents a potential opportunity. Liberty Home Guard can provide extended coverage for one or more GE appliances. Even if your fridge or washing machine breaks down from general wear and tear, we’ll have you covered. And you can be sure that your equipment will be repaired by a qualified, insured tech.

But you could also bundle coverage for your GE appliances with coverage for other appliances and systems in your home. Maybe you have a GE oven, but a Samsung fridge and Whirlpool dishwasher. With Liberty Home Guard, that’s no problem.

If your GE appliance has failed and the manufacturer’s warranty is still active, by all means take advantage of it! But if your warranty has expired, and you have that nagging thought of what if your appliance fails, give us a call at Liberty Home Guard.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

HOME WARRANTY
  • What is a home warranty?

    A home warranty is a service contract that covers the cost of repairs and replacements for your home’s systems and appliances when they break down over time from normal wear and tear.

  • How does a home warranty work?

    It’s simple, you can select the coverage plan of your choice that is the best fit for your home and budget.

    When you request service for a covered item, you will be charged a pre-set fee in order to initiate the service request.

    With an LHG home warranty, when a covered item needs repair, simply follow these steps:

    • File a claim online or call.
    • After paying your set fee, we’ll put you in contact with a local contractor to schedule your appointment.
    • After officially diagnosing the problem, the contractor will contact us to make sure the issue is covered by your plan.
    • If everything checks out, the contractor will then repair or replace the item in question.
    • Afterwards, we’ll check in with you by email or phone to make sure you’re happy with the job.
  • What does a home warranty cover?

    Liberty Home Guard offers 3 different plans depending on the coverage your home needs. The Total Home Guard is a combination of both our Appliance Guard and Systems Guard plan. It is our most comprehensive and most economical.

    We offer add-ons to each plan. Check HERE for our Home Warranty Plans & Policies page to learn more about everything we cover.

  • How is a home warranty different from homeowner’s insurance?

    A home warranty covers the costs of repairs and replacements of major home appliances and systems. Home systems, for example, include plumbing, electrical, and HVAC.

    Homeowners insurance provides coverage if theft or natural disaster hits.

  • How is a home warranty different from a manufacturer’s warranty?

    The main difference is that a manufacturer’s warranty generally covers the failed part of a single appliance, but usually doesn’t include the cost of labor or repair. With a home warranty, one plan covers a variety of systems and appliances, making it a more cost-effective way to safeguard your home.

  • Why is buying a home warranty a good decision for homeowners?

    A home warranty protects the homeowner’s budget by removing the risk of fluctuating expenses when big ticket items break down. With a Liberty Home Guard home warranty, the homeowner will pay for a monthly plan, along with a flat rate service call fee associated with any repairs, rather than the full retail cost of replacing or repairing any of their home appliances or systems.

  • Do I have to get a home inspection before getting a Liberty Home Guard home warranty?

    No. Liberty Home Guard doesn’t require a home inspection or any maintenance records to purchase a home warranty plan.

  • How long does it take to fulfill a service request?

    Liberty Home Guard will dispatch a licensed technician to your home within 24 - 48 (business) hours of your request. Extenuating circumstances do apply.

  • Can I choose my own service contractor?

    Yes, you absolutely can. We only ask that you reach out to us first so that we can authorize the contractor you'd like to work with. This helps ensure that the highest standards are applied and that you and your family are kept safe. In our experience, you will usually save the most money and get the best work done using an LHG Certified Professional. All of our contractors are licensed professionals, and their work comes with a 60-day workmanship guarantee.

  • What happens if I sell my home?

    You can take your warranty with you to your new home, or cancel your warranty plan.
