Internal fuse


Is this an over-the-range (OTR) microwave oven or a counter-top model? Assuming it is an OTR model, your can get to the fuse by first unplugging the microwave, then removing 2 to 4 screws over the grille vent. Remove the grille vent. Depending on the model, you either slide it to the left a little bit (1/4 inch) then pull it out, OR tilt out the top of it followed by the bottom. Now you should see 1 screw that hold the top of the control console in place. Remove it, then lift up on the control console to get past the tabs, and tilt out the top. Now, depending on the model, you may see the fuse behind the control console, or if it's not there, then remove the 1 or 2 screws that hold the metal grill vent that's located above the control console. Remove that metal grill, and your should see the fuse behind it. Sometimes that fuse blows for no good reason, other times it blows because you have a shorted high-voltage capacitor, or you may have a sticking "monitor" door switch.

How to change the inside bulb in a ge spacemaker microwave that has a top vent fan


My Spacesaver bulb replaces from the top. You have to remove 2 screws that hold the upper vent cover. W/ cover off you will find a phillips head screw about the center that holds the bulb cover. Remove the cover screw & lift up & remove the cover, then replace the bulb, the cover & screw then put the vent cover & it's 2 screws back. There may be some variance but they are all similar.

GE xl1800 active vent bulb replacement


I think the key is pulling the vent to the left.

From page 36 of the online version of the owner's manual, which also mentions the active grille's presence on some models:

Oven Light

Replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt, 20-watt
halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from your
GE supplier.

To replace the oven light, first disconnect the
power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel
or pull the plug.

Remove the top grille by taking out the screws
on top of the grille that hold it in place and
sliding the grille to the left (opening the door
makes grille removal easier).

Next, remove the light cover.

On some models, the light cover is located
in the center of the top opening. Remove the
screw that secures the light cover and lift the
cover off.

On some models, the light cover is located at the
left of the top opening. Lift the cover off.

Pinch the clips that hold the light socket in
place and lift the socket out.

Remove the bulb from the light socket by
pulling straight out. Replace with the same size
and type bulb, then replace the light socket and
cover.

Replace the grille and screws. Connect electrical
power to the oven.

How to remove a sharp r 1481 over the counter microwave


If you are referring to an over your stove combination microwave/ vent system then they are typically secured thru the cabinet above them. Try opening the cabinet directly over the oven ( you may need a step ladder to see the mounting hardware) and look near the front of that cabinet for two screws on the bottom of that cabinet. These two screws go thru the cabinet and support the front of the microwave oven. You may also see the power cord for that mircrowave oven plugged into a receptacle inside that cabinet. Unplug that cord and then begin unscrewing the two screws. ( it's best if you have a helper work with you).. as you unscrew them, the front of the microwave should begin to drop down a bit. Once the screws are removed, you should be able to lift the back panel up a little bit to free the microwave of the wall mounting bracket. Once that is doen, you will be able to remove the microwave. I am assuming that your microwave does not have any vent pipe secured to it. If it does, then you will need to seperate that from the microwave vent on top ( assuming it is venting thru the top) .. These microwaves can be vented in any of 3 ways, thru the top, outthe back or configured to vent back into the room. In any case, you should see ductwork while removing this from the cabinet. Hope this helps you get the job done...

Most microwave oven fan systems can be rotated for either back or top venting.. This can be done by removing a few screws and rotating the blower housing to the position you need and screwing it back in place.. Hope this helps..

Clean vent


The vent (also known as grill assembly in GE literature) comes off after removing the two screws at the top of the unit and gently sliding the entire assembly to the left about an inch. This will allow the vent to be cleaned of grease, hair, etc., as well as giving some access to the areas behind the vent.
