"Bad motor and gear after 3 years = $300.00. Bought it to replace an older G.E. because we remodeled our kitchen. The old one is still working in our garage."

Didn't Last
Posted:9/20/09
Pros: looks great and is the lowest profile available
Cons: didn't last
"Worked great while it worked. Certainly not heavily used in our family of three. It is the lowest profile available.
I bought because it had a GE motor and brand. Thought that was the best.
Higher priced. I thought that meant something. Oh well, I should have known better.
2.1 years and the motor has an "open spot", meaning it permanently stops at certain points. Must hand crank it past that point in order for it to work again. Over $300 repair.
No excuse in this day and age. Many electric motors, most all in fact, last very, very long. Just shoddy workmamship."
