Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
The Spacer Microwave that we have in our new townhome does not vent the stovetop fumes/ odors to the outside of the residence. It blows the nastiness out the front of the unit all over the cabinets and us. Is there a vent kit that can be installed so the fumes are vented outside of the house?
I am absilutely certain that the reason it vents inside is because it is more difficult to vent it outside.. ( which means it costs the builder more to do that) but to answer your question.. Yes, all spacemaker micros can be vented out the wall but you will have to remove it from where it is mounted and rotate the blower assembly so it vents out the back, place a blank off plate over the open area where it used to vent ( it may be there and needs to be repositioned when you rotate the blower) , then create a vent hole that lines up with the exit point of that micro.. and attach duct work to bring it outside ( depending on your siding , will dictate how that gets mounted externally and you may run into a problem witha stud on the outside wall ( a bearing wall) that wil need to be cut..I've installed many of these to outside vents and it is a lot of work.. so you may want to consider your options. If you hire someone, that's the easiest solution. You may also want to check to make sure your condo committee ( if you have one) will not have a problem with that.. or you may be able to get a group discount if you hire someone to do mulitple units..
Hope that helps..
