Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven
My wife was in the attic the other day and said she saw a mouse. It ran down the attic towards the kitchen end of the house. A short time later she heard a noise in the wall behind the microwave. A while after that we used the microwave and noticed the vent fan was not blowing and sounded 'stuck'.
The microwave was in place when we bought the house so I'm not sure how it's hooked up, but there is not a vent cover outside of wall where the microwave is hooked up. Is it possible that somehow the vent was forced up to the attic and the mouse may have found his way down and got lodged in the fan?
If so, what is the recommended best way to fix and remove the 'problem'? Thanks!
Yes, the mouse was probably attracted to the warmth and food odors in the duct work and may have gotten trapped in the vanes of the fan and died. I'd act fast...
The best bet is to remove the oven from the wall, or almost from the wall, so you can see the area of the hood vent exhaust fan.
This is safer with two people and the installation instructions will be of great help.
