g2Max® SpeedCook Technology

Whirlpool GH7208XRS Reviews & Ratings

GH7208XRS Gold 30" Velos Speedcook Over-the-Range Microwave Oven with True Convection Oven and Steamer in Stainless Steel is rated 3.2941 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly built PLASTIC componets This product is very poorly built. The bottom of the door of the unit is plastic and IF you cook at all it will crack from the heat from the stove below the unit. The steam or heat will get in through the cracked plastic and go in between the glass front and get into the electrical panel. The electrical panel will get condensation and not work and you will have to replace the electrical panel or buy a whole new unit. I do have a direct vent to the outside and use the fan on the unit. Other companies use steel on the bottom and do not have this issue. The plastic on the bottom of the door will crack and you will have an issue eventually.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not recommended Purchased this microwave in 2006 and at first I loved it, then about a year later the glass started to fog up and the plastic strips around the door cracked. I had an extended warranty on the product and the door was replaced. A couple years later it happened again and they ended up replacing the whole microwave. Well, it has happened again and the extended warranty has expired so I am stuck with a microwave that has cracks in the plastic and fogged glass. For the price I paid for this microwave, I should not have the same problem over and over again. I do not recommend this product

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Problems with this product I purchased this item a couple years ago thinking that it was a superior product. However, problems started right away. This product does not function very well when installed over an oven, which is how it was designed to be used. Seems that steam or heat from the oven can enter the electronics within the microwave and cause problems. Now the microwave will run through programs on its own and continue "beeping" at all hours of the day and night. It sometimes locks up and will not respond to touch controls. I am concerned that the maker will not stand behind their products integrity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous...but... This is the best microwave I have ever had except for two things: 1. The handle is brittle plastic and broke with normal open and closing. Whirlpool sent me a new one and it is easy to replace - just worried that it will break again. 2. The microwave is above our stove and when we boil a pot of water, even with the fan on, the touch pad goes 'haywire' - it seems to think we want to re-heat a cup of coffee according to the read-out. Annoying, but not damaging. Overall, I would recommend - great look and a huge amount of space given the form factor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The product is poorly bulit for the money I have had the same problems as other reviewers. The unit starts beeping on it's own at all hours. The first unit was still under warranty so Whirlpool sent out a repair person 6 times without any success. Each time they tried to repair the unit another problem occured. We are now on our second unit and the light has stopped working. Whirlpool has sent a reair person out twice now without any success. At this point the repair person has called Whirlpool and they have no idea how to fix it. This unit design is very poor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We wanted a microwave range hood replacement... ...we got a third oven! This microwave does it all. It cooks like a microwave or you can use it as a convection oven. The pre-programmed cooking by type, method, food, etc. is a great feature. I use it exclusively for cooking bacon now and clean-up is a breeze. Steaming vegetables is a pleasure and it's quick! The only thing I wish it had, and maybe it does and I don't know it, is the ability to program additional foods.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is defective We have had the same problems as another reviewer. This microwave is above the stove and will not tolerate any cooking on the stove at all. It starts going through all types of cycles randomly, beeps in the middle of the night, and locks up so you cannot do anything with it. We have had this microwave replaced 3 times in the last year. Please correct the problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality In the first year we had the repair people over 8 times. I finally got them to replace the unit but the problems began again in a week or 2. It melted the plastic drive piece for the turntable, had the exhaust fan replaced, the lights went out 2 times,Door handle cracked,display took fits and stopped and started working randomly. Got it replaced again but this time we upgraded to the Kitchen Aid which was a little more expensive but we were hoping for better quality. No such luck, same piece of pretty junk. We have a Great Cabrio washer and a very nice Whirlpool Gold refrigerator but we have never been so dissatisfied in a appliance . After about 17 repairs between the 2 units, I gave up.The lights are out, plastic trim is broken and display has fits Its almost 6 yrs old and we will use it till it dies. I will never purchase a newly designed product from Whirlpool without extensive research again, They missed the mark on this !

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.
How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covegrey.
How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.
Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.
What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.
Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.
May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covegrey product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.
Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
When does my warranty start?
Depending on the type of coverage you own, an extended warranty begins at the conclusion of the shortest portion of the manufacturer’s warranty. If the manufacturer’s warranty was 90 day labor and 1 year parts, the extended warranty would begin on the 91st day and continue for the duration of the warranty period. All replacement, commercial and accidental plans begin on the date of purchase.
Why does my plan say "under $1000"?
Some plans carry a dollar value on them. This means that your product's purchase price, excluding tax, delivery and accessories is below the listed price on the contract. It's simply a classification based on the price of purchase of the product under warranty.
What does an accidental plan cover?
If you have added Accidental Coverage to your plan, this plan shall cover unintentional damages as a result of: impact, liquid damage or unintentional physical damage. Accidental Coverage does not cover intentional damages of any kind to the covered product or losses due to theft. Accidental Coverage does not cover willful damage, misuse, damage due to neglect, drops over 6 feet, fire damage or full immersion in water.

Accidental Coverage does not cover damage caused by the use of a product in a way the manufacturer never intended. Coverage for this plan shall begin 30 days after the date of purchase of the covered product.
Is my service plan worldwide?
All plans carry a worldwide option at no additional charge. Contact a sales professional for further details.
Who do I contact with further questions?
Please contact a sales professional at 1-800-299-9470.
