Depending upon where inside the microwave the nut dropped, it may be necessary to open the cabinet to retrieve it.

SOURCE: gap between cabinet and top of microwave oven

eastlake...only if you think so. Most of these units use a submounting bracket set and then you hook your oven to it. This is a rather nasty installation...I've done several. If it's sturdy, you may just want to put in a filler piece.

SOURCE: NEED TO REMOVE WALL MOUNTED GE JVM1190BY002 MICROWAVE

I also have a JVM1190 and was baffled as to removal. My very handy brother solved it in two minutes. Above the door and keypad there is a long grill secured by two small squarehead (Robertson) screws. Remove the screws and grill and you will see on either side of the opening a long bolt. They go through to the back of the microwave where the support plate attached to the wall. The bolts have a slot in the middle for a flat blade screwdriver. Simply turn the bolt to release from the back plate. Make sure there is a helper underneath as the microwave is fairly heavy. Do the reverse for re-installation.

SOURCE: i have ge under cabinet microwave model jvm1331

Look in the cabinet above the microwave. You should see a vent if it is vented outside. You will need to remove the vent. Then look in the same area to find two screws that will need to be removed. Disconnect the power cord and have someone hold the bottom of the unit and remove the screws. It will fall at this point so hold it good. With the screws out and vent removed you will be able to let the front of the microwave down a little. This will allow you to now lift the back to release it from the channel hook in rear. Then you will see the mount plate on the wall. It should have screws securing it to the wall on stud locations. remove these screws and remove the wall plate. Hope this helps. Good luck.

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.

How do I remove a GE spacemaker model jvm130k


I assume that it's mounted below a cabinet on the mounts supplied with the microwave. If that's the case, there are four buttons on the top of the microwave in each corner. They fit into holes in the mount then slide into depressions which hold the unit in place under the cabinet.

To release the microwave push up from the bottom then try sliding it backward first. If you are able to move it, carefully slide the whole unit until it drops through the holes and is clear of the mounts.

Be very careful because the unit is pretty heavy and you'll get its full weight when it drops through the holes.

If it doesn't move when you try to slide it rearward, try sliding it sideways in either direction. The direction you must slide it in is determined by how the mounts were installed but it should slide out fairly easily once you know which way to move it.

I have a replacement magenetron and diode for a GE Profile undercabinet microwave. Can you share the step by step instructions for replacing it? Model number JVM 3670


Disconnect the power source.
Remove the cabinet to reveal the wiring.
Locate the large transformer. Next to the transformer is the magnetron and diode assembly. MAKE SURE THE CAPACITOR IS DISCHARGED AS LETHAL VOLTAGES ARE HERE!
Disconnect the diode and remember where the connections came from, (a phone camera is useful for this job). Remove the magnetron.
Replace the magnetron and fit the diode pack.
Replace the cabinet and test by placing 1/2 litre of water in the machine, having first measured the temperature of the water.
Microwave for 1 minute.
The water should have increased in temperature by at least 10degrees Celcius. If it has, it is to specification and you have repaired your microwave oven.

I want to remove/replace a 2000 GE JVM1640WB microwave and don't know how to access the mounting/securing screws to allow me to remove the old unit. Are they behind the top grill, which looks like it's...


I have found and provided a link installation instructions for your existing model. The front is held in place by two screws through the cabinet above into the top of the micro and the back is supported by a wall bracket. A new microhood will fit into the space, but will install a little differently. link to instructions:

Installation of undercabinet microwave


If the OTR is the same model, the mounts should be the same. As long as you use the same bolts/screws from the old one, or the same length new bolts/screws, it should be a fairly simple exchange.

1985 GE Microwave Spacesaver Uninstall


A possible solution:
I was facing the same problem with my (1998?) GE JVM48006. In this models case, the microwave was housed in a support cabinet that was fastened to the wall behind. First, I removed the phillips head screws behind the louvered vent above the microwave. Then, I removed the screws of the slanted bottom panel that give access to servicing the stove top lights (underneath the unit) which were integrated into the support cabinet (separate from the microwave itself). On the right side was an electrical wire harness hidden behind a cover that had to be unplugged (similar to a car wiring harness). Then, I removed (4) 5.1/2 inch hex head bolts that secured the unit through the cabinet above. Now I was able to slide the microwave out towards the front (with some rocking back and forth). All that was left then was to remove the support housing (fastened to the back wall).
