Built-in Microwave Warranty Coverage

Many of us would be lost at mealtime if we couldn't just pop something in the microwave to heat it up. So even though your microwave oven can last 8 years or more, over the course of that time it's likely to need some repairs. That's why it's good to have coverage. An American Home Shield® home service plan ensures that when a covered problem strikes, you can take care of it. Built-in microwaves are covered in our ShieldGold™ and ShieldPlatinum™ plans along with other Appliances and Home Systems.

American Home Shield will pay up to $3,000 per covered item malfunction ($6,000 with ShieldPlatinum plan) for access, diagnosis, and repair/replacement of any covered appliance.
