    Normally you remove the plastic rivet at the front, but it depends on the brand and model.

    Please reply back with your brand and model number from the tag on the unit so we can help you.

Hi, If you look at the plate on the top it has what looks like a little button and printing that says "open" with an arrow pointing to the left and one pointing to the right that says "close".
The little button is actually a tab that you can carefully remove by using a butter knife and sticking it in above the tab where the plate meets the top. The tab is about 1/4 inch long. After you remove the tab carefully turn the plate to the left and slowly drop it down. There is a slotted disk on a square shaft above the plate that may (probably) drop down with the plate. The plate holds the disk in place and is actually the bearing for that disk so be sure to slide it back on the shaft as you put the plate back. turn the plate to the right and then push the tab back into the hole. Good Luck!

How do i get the air vent cover off, so I can clean grease from the top.


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are trying to the air vent cover off your Frigidaire microwave, model# PLMV169DC, so you are able to clean the grease from underneath the top cover. Please follow these instructions:

1. Disconnect power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging.
2. Remove the louver mounting screws.
3. Pull the louver away from the unit.
4. Change the charcoal filter.
5. Carefully push the louver back into place and replace the screws removed in step 2.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I've got grease dripping down from the top left inside corner of my otr microwave. I've cleaned the grease filters. Is it a problem with the vent to the outside?


Without a long explanation as to why but they will get a build up. At this juncture i would be prudent to just clean it well. Because it will require you to remove the outer cover, you must disconnect it. Be careful when you do this, no metal objects. It has parts that store electric. Once you open it you will see the build-up. Do not open the metal box, it is the part that stores the electric.

I have a new JVM1750 just installed yesterday. There was some arcing, in what looked like underneath, a white circular disc in the ceiling of the internal cavity. Have checked for foil - none inside the...


That is your stirrer cover.

Any arcing there is usually due to grease or food particles, so on a new oven that would be as mystery.

But any time you get arcing under it, it has to be removed and cleaned.

My husbands wants to know how to clean the air filters that are under the spacemaker icrowave oven and above the stove ?


If your unit is venting to the outside, you would be using one or two grease filters, which can be cleaned, usually with warm soapy water.

If your unit is set to recirculate, then you should be using a charcoal filter, which cannot be cleaned, and must be replaced.

Details and instructions are to be found in your owner's manual.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

How do I clean the inside glass on the door - GE Profile JVM1870


I have a Kenmore with similar issues.
Model 665.61639100
Anyway, good luck with this. Hope someone has an answer for you (and me).
Mine has a open slot on the top front of the door. Kinda like a double plate window execpt for the opening in front. Why is this there? I don't know. Weird design. But it leaves for the possibilty of liquid to splash in there leaving it hard to clean (like impossible).

I'm thinking I have to completely remove and disect the door.

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.

Opening mmv5165ba to clean filters


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.
