There are at least two additional screws hidden in the black plastic grill that runs along the top edge of the unit. Take a flashlight and inspect the grill, screws are usually about 3-4 inches in from the corners. Once these screws are removed you should be able to lift up on the back edge of the unit. it does not slide out like a drawer. It is hooked along the back edge so be prepared to hold the entire weight. Since it is junk you may also want to unplug the electric supply line and cut it off where it comes throught the cabinet. I removed one once and could hold the weight but the cord hung me up and I had no third free hand to cut the cord. GE Spacemakers are not hard wired. They come with a standard three prong tail. they are built to plug into a grounded receptacle.Two reasons: #1 While the microwave is still attached you have almost no room to push the pig back down inside the hole in the cabinet. The machine sits immediately beneath the cabinet taking up the space. During installation this is a two person project, one to lift the machine and one to feed the wire. Its pretty much impossible to get all of the pig through the hole. #2 when a machine is shot I cut the cord to discourage others from working on my discards. Faulty microwaves can be very dangerous and I want to prevent less skilled handymen from messing with it.

Remove the louvered cover across the top of the unit and you will see the two Phillips screws(one on each side) that hold the unit fast to the cabinet. Once removed the unit tilts down and unhooks from the cabinet frame. Have an extra pair of hands to control the tilting and lifting for the unhooking. Be sure that you have unplugged the power cord and it is free to be pulled through the hole in the bottom of the cabinet above the microwave

GE Microwave/Convection JVM 1090 oven won't reach temperature


You probably have a bad thermistor.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

(At that site, that part is misspelled as "thermister" for your model).

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Accessing some components for testing will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
