Built-in Microwave Warranty Coverage

Many of us would be lost at mealtime if we couldn't just pop something in the microwave.That's why it's good to have home warranty coverage. An American Home Shield® home warranty ensures that when a covered problem strikes, you can simply place a service request.

American Home Shield will pay up to $2,000 per covered appliance ($4,000 with ShieldPlatinum™) for access, diagnosis, and repair/ replacement per the limitations and exclusions in your plan agreement.

American Home Shield covers built-in microwaves, which are designed to be mounted on a wall or installed in cabinetry rather than placed on a counter or another surface. We do not cover countertop microwaves.

If we can’t repair your covered built-in microwave, we’ll replace it subject to the limitations and exclusions in your plan agreement and remove the defective item. 

You can place your first service request 30 days after you sign up for your plan. Service requests can easily be placed 24/7 online via MyAccount or by calling 1-888-691-2854 during standard business hours to request service.

Our best home warranty plan is the one that’s right for you and your home.
