Question about Microwave Ovens

Picking replacement over-the-range microwave for easiest install

We need to replace a 30'' GE Spacemaker microwave. It was suspended from side brackets, with top retaining screws. There are at least 4 models showing the same dimensions, though none appear to publish their installation process. We purchased one (HVM1540), and find that it uses a bracket mounted across the bottom on the rear wall, which would involve cutting into our tiling, quite apart from a completely new set of holes in wall and top cabinet. Does anyone know how to find a model compatible with the top suspension?

    Please note that we're not looking for parts or repair, but information on which models have what type of bracket mounting (and confidence that bracket does not extend beyond stated microwave dimensions). I have not been able to find this published online.

  • andrewrb Nov 30, 2008

    I probably should have noted the height of the GE models, and space available, as approx. 16". The shallowest current Whirlpool I could find is 17.5", likely to be a problem.

  • andrewrb Dec 01, 2008

    As commented, the Whirlpool doesn't appear ideal because of greater height, so that it overlaps tiling. However, if I stick ply of same thickness as tile, and can mount bracket on that so that everything is flat, it may work.
    Thx

The whirlpool has support mounting on top but it still comes with a mounting plate you screw to back wall and hang the microwave on it then run the mounting/support bolts down into it / the back plate can be mounted by drilling 4 holes in back wall to mount it and non of the mounting shows / that would be your best bet / larry

You need to use you complete model number, the one on the service plate to order the part.

Possibly call the dealer at the phone.

Try calling this one.

The GE Spacemaker series of microwave ovens are designed to be installed above an oven range, freeing up counter space in your kitchen. Some of these Spacemaker models are connected to an outside venting system to carry kitchen vapor and odors outside. Other Spacemaker models utilize a ductless system to do this. Removing a GE Spacemaker microwave oven isn't a difficult task, but, because of the size of some of the oven models, it is a two-man operation. Have a question?

Things You'll Need

  • Sharp knife
  • Phillips screwdriver
Instructions
    • 1 Open the cabinet above where the Spacemaker microwave oven is installed. If you see a vent in the cabinet leading to the Spacemaker oven below, your Spacemaker is vented. This vent needs to be disconnected before continuing with removal. Disconnect the vent either by loosening the duct clamps or by cutting the duct tape away with a sharp knife. Pull the vent out of the top of the oven.
    • 2 Have an assistant support the oven from below. Loosen the mounting screws connected to the Spacemaker through the cabinet bottom. Loosen the screws by turning counterclockwise with the Phillips screwdriver.
    • 3 Unplug the Spacemaker from the socket in the cabinet.
    • 4 Continue loosening the screws while your assistant holds the oven in place. Once the screws are removed, have your assistant slowly lower the Spacemaker down by lowering the front face at a 45-degree angle.
    • 5 Feed the power cable for the Spacemaker through the hole in the bottom in the supporting cabinet.
    • 6 Help your assistant slowly pull the Spacemaker forward and out of the mounting brackets on the rear wall. Once the Spacemaker is cleared of the mounting cabinet and rear wall, set it down.
    • 7 Remove the mounting bracket from the rear wall by loosening the screws.
