SOURCE: microwave message says to replace

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.

SOURCE: how to install charcoal filter

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.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Whirlpool microwave fuse has blown multiple times


It depends on which fuse and when it blows. Wish you had mentioned that.

But usually it's a defective door switch or door switch mount.

If the fuse blows at random times while it's cooking, it may just be a loose fuse holder. Those have to be replaced due to metal fatigue, not just squeezed tight with pliers.

If it blows as soon as you hit "Start" to begin cooking, you have a shorting high voltage capacitor.

If it blows when you open or close the door, you have a loose or defective door switch or latch.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

I don't know how to replace the charcoal filter on my Frigidaire FMV157GC microwave. There's also food between the grate and the glass on the microwave door. Help !


This is billed as the Use & Care Manual for the Frigidaire FMV156DC Microwave Oven:

ftp://ftp.electrolux-na.com/ProdInfo_PDF/Springfield/316495004en.pdf

Not sure it is the correct one but you will find instruction for cleaning the exhaust filters on page 19.

Below is the Use & Care Manual for a model direct from the Frigidaire site:

http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Springfield/316495057en.pdf

This is more helpful as on page 20 it includes illustrated instructions for removing the charcoal filter to change the oven light. Disconnect from power, remove the ventilation grate at the top to access the charcoal filter, slide back and lift to remove. With the grate removed carry out any required cleaning.

I was trying to clean charcoal filter, now not sure how to put back. Should it be horizontal or lil' slant position!


Charcoal filters cannot be cleaned. They must be replaced.

I'm assuming you have a Whirlpool brand microwave since you posted in a Whirlpool microwave category.

You can download free owners manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts and accessories (such as charcoal filters) by entering your full model number here.

I have a FMV145BC1 microwave oven, 5 yr old, everything works but food does not get hot!


Does the food get warm at all? My suspicion is you have a bad door switch. Do you open the door while the machine is running, ever? If yes, that is not good for the little contacts on the door safety interlock micro switches. I learned this by burning mine up. The switches are less than $ at a radio supply place and typically, you can change them yourself.

Unplug the machine. Remove the cover and you will find the interlock switches on the handle side of the door, probably on the right hand side. DO NOT TOUCH THE SILVER THING AT THE BACK SIDE OF THE MACHINE - IT IS POTENTIALLY LETHAL EVEN WHEN UNPLUGGED. If you have a volt ohm meter, you can test these switches for open and closed. If they read open when the door is closed, they (or it) is probably bad.
