Fan does not suck steam off of stove when on also the light under microwave is going off in a few seconds then works for awhile. Fan also goes on when not even cooking.

Over the range Microwave are not the greatest range hood venting system. There is only one side that can remove the steam. Yes you have two filters, this is to make it look good to you. Usually the left side it the side that actually moves air. The right side it you look at it is full of electrical device to make the microwave operate. I hope I have given you so insight

Can a Kenmore Microwave oven Model 401.8504*, 85143 be put on a counter top and used?

Most over-the-range (OTR) microwave ovens have the exhaust fan funning at low speed when the microwave oven is working. This is to keep the magnetron and electronics cool. And it sucks air in from the bottom, so if you just place this microwave flat on the countertop, it won't be able to suck air in, and it could overheat if you use it for more than just a few minutes. But if you can put it on some boards or some sort of grill so air can get to the bottom, then you should be okay to use it as a counter-top model.

The exhaust fan is not 'sucking' air from the bottom of the microwave, it is pulling in air from the upper right of the unit. Why?

Not to be redundant , but there are two dampers on a microwave that is vented out. One attached to the unit and one on the exterior of the building. Have you checked both? I am from the mechanical side of appliances, not the technical side but i believe the large fan vents steam and odors from the cooktop and the small fan cools and vents the micro conpertment. I'll check with others and get back with you.

Suction fan on GE over-the-range microwave

If the blade is not big enough, the motor not powerful enough, or the vent size is wrong then it will not work properly, On thing you can do is check the vent cap and make sure that it has not falling down onto the vent pipe and blocking air movement.

I would suggest checking the filters, checking the duct work (including the outdoor vent) and if that doesn't turn up the problem, the hood vent exhaust fan blade assembly may have come loose on the shaft.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here to help you verify the filter status and duct work.

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.

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