    It is a relatives microwave. I know its about 2 yrs old and a GE started Spacesaver. The oven smoked when started filled the house with smoke. Smelled like burned wiring. I have seen on the intranet that the spacesaver wasn't rated very high so thought it may be just as easy to replace and be done with it

Assuming it's not just a greasy / charring waveguide cover (stirrer cover) then smoke is most likely a problem with the high voltage transformer, which is pretty expensive.

The installation instructions are very handy and will show you how it's installed.

It's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

How to change a microwave oven fan motor.


When your microwave makes loud noises, and they are eminating from the fan motor you will need to replace the motor. It no doubt has bad bushings. If not oiled periodically, and who does this, the motor will gall the bushings and make a loud screeching sound. Sometimes just oiling the motor after the sound starts will solve the problem, but most likely only temporarily. A permanent solution would be to replace the motor.

Unplug the unit. If your unit is not a freestanding unit and is mounted under the cabinet it will have to be removed from the cabinet first to continue. Usually this requires two people and the removal of two screws inside the cabinet above the microwave, tilting the unit down at the front and lifting the back of the unit off the mounting rail.

Remove all the screws from the rear of the unit case, perimeter and slide the cover off to the back. The motor should be visiable at this point. If it is not there could be a guard over it which should come off with one or two screws.

Go to http://www.repairclinic.com where you can get the new motor. They generally have parts for everything and at the best prices.

The mounting procedure should be obvious, either two or four screws. Remove and replace the motor. The motor wires should be spade lugs. Remove and replace one at a time to avoid any confusion.

Reassemble the unit by reversing the procedure listed above and remount under the cabinet if originally mounted under a cabinet and you should have a quiet running microwave.

I NEED A 24 IN. WIDE COUNTERTOP MICROWAVE TO BE INSTALLED UNDER A CABINET. NO VENT NEEDED. I WAS NOT LOOKING FOR A DRAWER TYPE UNIT. I CANT FIND AN INSTALLATION KIT TO INSTALL ONE. THE ONLY KIT I COULD...


Sharp has a model 1214 that could work, but it is a little over 15" deep and will therefore not recess entirely into a 12" deep upper cabinet. I believe the install kit comes with it?

I can't find bolts or screws that hold the unit in place. I need to remove the microwave in order to install new one.


HI there,

Here's HOW;

  1. Remove the face plate above the door.
  2. There were 2 bolts in which you will need a screw driver to loosen it
  3. This bolts go all the way to the back of the microwave.
  4. You still need to remove the one - three screws that's above of the cabinet. You may have to jar it loose if it still stuck.
Hope this helps.

Let me know for further instructions.

How do I install a replacement Frigidaire over the stovetop microwave - professional series, without removing the cabinet above it? I need to know how to best remove the existing microwave.


Remove everything from the inside of the microwave, (such as glass tray). Unplug the microwave, probably in the cabinet above. There are two screws in the cabinet above the microwave, near the front, that supports the front of the microwave. The back is hooked on a mounting plate attached to the wall behind it. An assistant is a good idea though this can be accomplished alone. It is best to move the stove out, if you are going to try alone. Please be carefl there is considerable weight to support here. Support the front of the microwave while the two screws are removed in the cabinet above. Slowly tilt the front of the unit down until you can pull the cord out of the bottom of the cabinet. With the front still tipped down, lift the back from it's support and remove it.

Removing under cabinet GE microwave


Remove the face plate above the door. You will see two bolts where you can use a screwdriver to turn them (unlock them). Those bolts go all the way to the back of the microwave. Once you have turned them (you do not need to remove them), you will need to remove the one - three screws that come in from the cabinet above. You may have to jar it loose if it still stuck.
