Unless your Microwave is older, you have a problem. The newer electronic ovens require a lot of ventilation to keep their circuits from overheating. Further, I know of no microwave recipes that produce grease. You may want to get back to me on this.

How to remove the microwave from the support brackets.


Open cupboard door above microwave and unscrew. It will tilt forward so watch out. You will then need to lift it off of two pieces of metal that are stuck in the back of the microwave

My smh8165 microwave stopped working and the display says "SE" and is less then a year old


Unplug microwave. Remove (2) flat head machine screws on the top of the microwave holding in the top front trim. My trim slid left and gently pulling was removed. The control panel has (1) screw holding it in. Remove screw, slide up and gently pulling detach from microwave. There are (5) electrical disconnects which need to be disconnected. Do not force they should come easily. Lay control panel on and old towel. Squirt both the male and female connections(in microwave control panel opening) with electrical cleaner. Carefully clean up excess. Connect the (5) quick disconnects and carfully fit back in the control panel opening. Attach screw. Place top trim in and slide right to lock. Once it is in secure the top two screws. Clean area and plug back in. Hopefully your up and running. These pieces break real easy so don't force anything.

Light won't go on; Model MMV1153WB-O


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

Enter it as MMV1153WB0 (no dash, zero on the end, not "oh")

Or just get it here, to be more exact.
On page 4, it says:

"Installing/Replacing Filters and Light Bulbs
■ Grease filter: Grease filter is on the underside of microwave
oven. Clean monthly. Slide the filter away from the tab area,
and drop out the filter. To reinstall, place end of the filter into
the opening opposite the tab area, swing up the other end,
and slide it toward the tab area.
■ Charcoal filter: The charcoal filter is behind the vent grille at the
top front of the microwave oven. The charcoal filter cannot be
cleaned, and should be replaced about every 6 months.
Remove 2 screws on the vent grille, tilt the grille forward, lift it
out, and remove filter. To reinstall, place the filter into its slotted
area – wire mesh side up, replace vent grille, and secure with
screws.
■ Cooktop light(s): The cooktop light bulb(s) is(are) located on
the underside of the microwave oven, and is(are) replaceable.
Remove bulb cover screw, and open the bulb cover. Replace
bulb, close bulb cover, and secure with screw.
■ Cavity light: The cavity light bulb is located behind the vent
grille at the top front of the microwave oven, under the bulb
cover, and is replaceable. Remove 2 screws on the vent grille,
tilt the grille forward, and lift it out. Open bulb cover and
replace bulb. Close bulb cover, replace vent grille, and secure
with screws."

HINT: Unplug the oven before removing or installing the bulbs, or you may need this service.

How do I get the filters out to clean them. I have a 1650 model


I have included a link to take you to GE and your user manual which can be viewed or printed.
To remove the grease filter:
To remove,
slide it to the
side using the tab. Pull it
down and out.
To clean the grease filter,
soak it and then swish it
around in hot water and
detergent. Don’t use
ammonia or ammonia
products because it will
darken the metal. Light
brushing can be used to
remove embedded dirt.
Rinse, shake and let it dry
before replacing.
To replace, slide the filter
in the frame slot on the
left side of the opening.
Pull up and to the right
to lock into place.
To remove the charcoal
filter, disconnect power at
the main fuse or circuit
breaker panel or pull
the plug.
To change the charcoal filter:
Remove the top grille by
removing the 2 screws that
hold it in place. Slide the
filter towards the front of
the oven and remove it.

pull the plug.
Remove the top grille by removing the screws

easier). Slide the filter towards the front of the
oven and remove it.
To Install Charcoal Filter

Insert the filter into the top opening of the oven as

I can not locate my charcoal filter in my GE Spacemaker Profile JMV2070BH02 where is the charcoal filter


Charcoal filter is behind the grille at the top of the oven. Find screws in front or at top of the grille and remove them.  Remove the grille by shifting to one side and pulling forward with the door open.  You should see a slot where the filter is inserted.  Remove old filter and replace with new.  Note which side of old filter is up and position the new one the same way.  The filter sits on tabs at the side and back.   Replace grille and screws.

Insructions


Looking at mine, it fits in pretty snug. Not much space needed on the sides and the top is bolted into the cupboard. This may help a bit but you may want to look at the install instructions for your specific model:
