    I needed help with the model number I entered, R-1872...I bought the unit new and I need install the first charcoal filter. I cannot figure out how to do so. The owner's manual on page 26 simply says to insert it. We cannot get it to fit anywhere.

From the owner's manual, page 37:

To remove the charcoal filter, disconnect power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel or pull
the plug.

Remove the top grille by removing the screws on top of the grille that hold it in place and sliding the
grille to the left (opening the door makes grille removal easier). Slide the filter towards the front of the oven and remove it.

The Charcoal Filter (JX81C) used for non-vented GE Spacemaker over the stove microwave (JVM1540SM2SS) does not fit anywhere (after pulling off the grill).


This of course assumes that your oven has the optional Recirculating Charcoal Filter Kit (part # JX81C available here) already installed.

Changing filter


The grease filter is changed from the bottom of the unit.

The charcoal filter is changed as follows:

To Remove Charcoal Filter
To remove the charcoal filter, disconnect power
at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel or
pull the plug.
Remove the top grille by removing the screws
that hold it in place and sliding the grille to the
left (opening the door makes grille removal
easier). Slide the filter towards the front of the
oven and remove it.
To Install Charcoal Filter
To install a new filter, remove plastic and other
outer wrapping from the new filter.
Insert the filter into the top opening of the oven as
shown. It will rest at an angle on 2 side support tabs
and in front of the right rear tab. Replace the grille
and screws.

Where is the charcoal filter?


There is no charcoal filter unless you replaced the standard filter with a carcoal filter. Also, it may have m=been changed to a charcoal filter if the unit was alterd during installation as a re-circulating vent, not vented to the outside via the roof or wall.

The filter (Charcoal or not) is on the bottom of the unit. Put your head under the microwave and look up, there it is.

When opening the door a venting sound immediately starts up.


The charcoal filter needs to be changed every 6-12 months, or sooner if it gets clogged.

Microwave message says to replace charcoal filter. User manual states charcoal filter is used if unit is not vented outside. Our unit is vented outside


External vent systems have the charcoal filter removed, generally at the time of installation, as it is not needed for this application.
The charcoal filter removes odors from internal recycled airflow.
There should be an aluminum grease filter that you can remove to clean in a warm soapy solution, let dry, and reinstall.
