SOURCE: Replacement light bulb for GE spacemaker microwave

That model number doesn't look quite right, but nevertheless:

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

SOURCE: Replace OTR Microwave

Thanks for responding. It is a EWave KOT-152UW. I think EWave is part of Magic Chef. I think it is the door switch. When I opened the microwave, the circuit breaker tripped. I reset the circuit breaker, and it worked for several days, but the last time, the microwave went dead. The reason I want to use the same bracket is it has through the wall (horizontal) venting to the outside, and I am not keen on trying to cut more holes.

SOURCE: Need replacement microwave to fit existing trim kit

Finally built up the courage to call GE Appliance number and weave my way through the phone menu system. Pressed the right menu option (sales) to speak to someone about trim kits. Found out that the trim kit model number is JX1527MWW. Then called back to select a different menu option (other) and learned from someone else that since the trim kit model is more than 1-2 years old, there's a slim-to-none chance any new microwave models will work with it, and even if there was they couldn't easily cross-reference against a model that old to tell me which one (or something to that effect). So I hit a dead end. Only option for me at this point is to buy a new microwave with new trim kit.

(Personal note: I think the trim kit business is a racket, in bed with the microwave manufacturers. Why else would there be no standard dimensions for microwaves by now--like refrigerators have--and why is it a few pieces of sheet metal cost over $150? Pretty convenient that every microwave model needs its own trim kit model!)

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

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

Chances are only an identical model will fit the brackets. Any new unit will come with new brackets. Just swap the brackets out and install the new unit

Jvm230wl I want to replace my over the range GE JVM230WL model but I'm not sure the exact dimensions. It appears to be a snug fit in the bracket so the measurements need to be manufacture specific. Also,...


GE Customer Service is here. They may be able to tell you if there is a "drop-in" replacement available for your model.

Otherwise, you'll have to take down the old bracket then mount another model in the space.

I currently have a non-working over the range microwave, I have bought a replacement. How to I take one down and replace it with the new one?Are the brackets interchangeable?


What brand Microwave are you removing and what brand are you installing? If the are not the same brand they will mount differently. On an older GE you remove the two screws holding the unit in place. They are located on top of the unit on the front. Look in the cabinet above the microwave. After you disconnect the vent pipe the unit slides forward and out. On some other brands the unit will pivot down and then you lift it off a mounting bracket. To make the job as easy as possible and to make sure the vent pipe does not have to be moved, remove the old unit before buying a replacement. Look at how it mounts. Then buy the same brand and it should mount the exact same way, so you could use the old mount. But even then the manufacture may have changed the way it is mounted. I just replaced a GE with a Whirlpool and they mount completely differently. I even had to move the vent pipe 2" to the right. So stick with the same brand and hope they have not change the mount.

Sounds easy...but


Installing one of these between two cabinets and supported by the one above it is a pain ..but even worse if you don't have the installation directions. If you are relatively handy and have some carpenntry experience, I'll walk you thru the way I install them. First off, I assume you are installing this above a stove and betwwen two wall cabinets.. You need to do a little preparation work first. locate the wall mount bracket and you should have a packet of hardware ( primarily two long screws that will be used to support the front of the micro from the cabinet above) If you have all this.. you'll need to determine if you are going to vent the micro back into the room or plan to vent it outside. The simplest is to vent it back into the rook thru a charcoal filter but if you are going tovent it outside, you have two choices.. one is to vent it up thru the cabinet and outside via ductwork that you buy..if the microwave oven is being attached to an outside wall then it is easiest to vent it straight out the back ( i say this because you have to orient the blower in teh configuration that you are planning to use) Let's assume you will be venting this back into the room ( that's the easiest ) and move on.. The wall mount bracket supports the back bottom of the microwave oven when you secure it and the two long screws will be used to bring the front of the micro up against the bottom of the cabinet above it... I normally locate the wall studs and then buy and fit a 1/2 inch piece of plywood onto the wall where the micro will be mounted. The microwave will project out 1/2 inch further as a result of this plywood panel but.. you can use lots of drwall screws to the secure the plywood to the wall studs and then you can mount the wall bracket onto this plywood without having to worry about where the studs are and if it will support the microwaves weight. Mount the bracket onto this plywood piece. I will use drwall screws and add flat washers to them to provide additional support. Once that bracket is installed, you will need to figure out how you are going to provide power to the microwave. If you are replacing an existing oven then you will probably have a power fees inside the cabinet =situated above the microwave oven. If not, then you will need to provide a power feed for this. In the old days, most of these appliances were hard wired into junction boxes but nowadays, most appliances are treated as removable and all you will need is an outlet box in the cabinet above. I suggest you bore a hole large enough for the power cord plug to fit thru the bottom of the cabinet so that you can plug it in. The next part is the hardest to accomplish.. If you look at the top of the microwave oven, you should see two holes near thhe front and on top. Those two holes have floating captive nuts inside them that the long screws ( included in your hardware kit) will be used to snug the front of the micro up against the bottom of the cabinet above it.. The trick is to measure from the back wall out to where these holes need to be drilled in the cabinet above so that they line up. You can drill bigger holes than you need and use oversize washers if necessary. If this sounds complicated ..it IS.. i have put many of these in and unless you are actually doing one, youhave no idea how involved this can be.. even worse with ducting to the outside.... I hope this gives you some tricks on how to install.. And um.. if you do get this all together, you will need some help actually putting it in place.. You'll need to catch the back of the microwave onto the tabs of the wall bracket and then feed the wire thru the cabinet while you lift the entire thing up to start the screws from the cabinet down onto the top of the microwave. I'm a big guy and have done these myself but it is not easy.. Hope this helps you.. Lastly, here is a link to the GE website where you can download the user manual and search their FAQ for install details ( in retrospect, I just should have given you that info).. http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/
Hope this helps you...

Installation of GE Microwave Oven


We have changed out a GE for another same brand, newer model. You will need two people to make the change-one of the two must be strong enough to support the unit after you remove the 3 bolts that hold it into the cabinet above. You will see these screws in the bottom shelf of the cabinet above your unit. A driver drill w/ the socket attachment to fit these "screws" would make it go faster. You'll need a step stool or a step ladder to get above the unit. There is a power cord that plugs into an outlet-make sure you have unplugged this before starting.While one is supporting the unit, the other is unscrewing the three bolts, When screws are out, the person on the ladder should come down and help w/ the unit removal. The unit is tipped forward to release it from the wall, as it is hooked into a bracket affixed to the wall. When you tip it forward, both of you should be prepared to lift it off the bracket. It helps to have the way cleared and a table or countertop ready on which to set it. BTW, My microwave installer did not use the flange provided to seal the vent around the cutout in the lower shelf of the upper cabinet. Removing ours, I can see why, there is no way to get the unit lined up w/ the flange and the duct and still tip it into the provided cut out. We bought metal sticky duct tape to seal it, and used the opportunity to reseal the above cut outs as well. I think some cabinets are constructed around the microwave installation, and if so, you could use the existing flange set up. When you are ready to put in the new one, do it in reverse, but schedule some clean up time in between, the grease finds a way of eluding all systems and you'll want to 409 it before putting in your new one. If this is too mu8ch for you, ask an installer or a neighbor to help-it doesn't require an electrician. You might want to ok into what GE is doing these days so your aren't dissappointed w/ the new unit after such a successful run with your first purchase.

New Microwave


Well one would presume you could simply measure the bracket and the microwave, and ask a retailer for the dimensions of units with similar dimensions.

They may also have this bracket and be able to compare the sizes before purchasing your new one.

Not knowing the dimensions of either the bracket itself or the microwave, this would be the only solution i can think of.
