Re: microwave hood combination

Your best bet is to contact the manufacturer for installation instructions, and even an installation kit, since this will come with harware and templates.

If you can supply brand and model, we can steer you better.

Is there a wall behind where the microwave is to fit?

Most of these ship with a mounting plate and instructions for mounting to the wall. In fact, the wall bracket carries about 1/2 the weight, and the overhead cabinets carry the other half. The plates come with a good set of instructions for how to install.

Whirlpool is sending you to a distributor because they have to watch liability in this litigous world we live in..

Does stove-top need downdraft if microwave has oven-hood combo?

We have a stove with no downdraft, and a microwave with a hood above it. It works just fine. I expect you could keep your downdraft and put a microwave without a hood above it, and that would also work. I don't think, however, you can buy an above the range mocrowave oven, that slides in on brackets, which will not have a hood.

Blower motor on above stove microwave not running

The dual fan in the back is the vent / exhaust / hood fa. It will run when you turn it on, or if the stove top gets too hot.

The other fan is the magnetron cooling fan, and it will only run when you are cooking. If it is not running, your magnetron can be destroyed.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here. That may help you a lot.
