Question about Jenn-Air Microwave Ovens
This microwave is designed to be flush-mounted with cabinets above and on each side, as mine is.
However, in order to change the interior light bulb and filters, it appears that you must have access to the top front of the microwave where 2 screws that hold on the top-front-panel are located. I have access to approx one-half inch of the top of the microwave, and no screws are visible.
The Jenn-Air phone tech says the unit must be "pulled out" in order to access the screws. This is not something most homeowners can do on their own, and is a serious design flaw from my perspective.
Is there a simple solution? Is inability to access those interior grease filters a safety hazard?
It's not a design flaw. The microwave was incorrectly mounted.
The installation instructions (installation kit) included a template for proper alignment of the microwave on the cabinetry.
If it had been aligned with the template, the two top grill screws would be easily accessible.
The grille must be removed to access the lights and the charcoal filters, which should be changed every 6-12 months if they are used.
If they are in place and not changed regularly, critical ventilation and cooling can be affected.
Your owner's manual can be downloaded free here, and it shows you how to change the bulbs and filter.
It will have to be remounted properly.
