Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1540 Microwave Oven

2 Answers

Need help selecting proper charcoal filter

I purchased a GE Spacemaker over-the-range microwave, model JVM1540 at Lowe's. If I had a charcoal filter that came with the microwave, it would be easy to find the right replacement charcoal filter; but it didn't come with one. The microwave is non-vented, by the way. The JX81A charcoal filter (which is what Lowe's told me to purchase) doesn't seem to fit. Apparently, there's also a JX81C, and JX81D charcoal filter out there, but I don't just randomly want to purchase air filters. Help!

    First we would need your full model number as found on the tag inside the unit to tell you what part number would fits yours.

    It would be one of these:

    JVM1540DM1BB
    JVM1540DM1CC
    JVM1540DM1WW
    JVM1540DM2BB
    JVM1540DM2CC
    JVM1540DM2WW
    JVM1540DN1BB
    JVM1540DN1CC
    JVM1540DN1WW
    JVM1540DN2BB
    JVM1540DN2CC
    JVM1540DN2WW
    JVM1540LM1CS
    JVM1540LM2CS
    JVM1540LN1CS
    JVM1540LN2CS
    JVM1540SM1SS
    JVM1540SM2SS
    JVM1540SN1SS
    JVM1540SN2SS

    Otherwise, you can simply download GE
    owner's manuals and installation instructions
    here.

    You can find
    helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full
    model number from the tag on the oven
    here.

The oem part is a charcoal filter in a metal casing. The size of the opening is 135x160mm, but the filter has to be smaller than this because of the thickness of the rigid metal casing. Filters you buy online may fit somewhat correctly, but are not likely to fit precisely. However, if you buy carbon filter media, such as the Honeywell 38002 carbon pre-filter or equivalent, you can use scissors to cut a 135mmx160mm piece that will fit precisely in the filter slot.
To access the filter, depending on the exact model, you remove screws on top of the microwave, then open the microwave door, and remove the plastic vent cover that extends across the length of the microwave at the top. In my case, there are three screws, and once they are removed, the plastic piece needs to be slid a very short distance to the left then pulled straight out from the microwave.
If you have cut a piece of filter as I suggest, you can fully insert the back of the filter into place, then bend the filter slightly so that you can drop the front of the filter behind the plastic tabs at the front. Note that the filter fits at a diagonal from top back to bottom front.
Drop the plastic cover back in place behind the open door, then insert, offset slightly to the left from microwave. When fully inserted, slide to right so that sides of cover are flush with microwave sides. Replace the three screws.
This is for JVM1540DP1(BB) where BB is color. Some JVM1540 models have four screws on top...

The Charcoal Filter (JX81C) used for non-vented GE Spacemaker over the stove microwave (JVM1540SM2SS) does not fit anywhere (after pulling off the grill).


This of course assumes that your oven has the optional Recirculating Charcoal Filter Kit (part # JX81C available here) already installed.

Replacing old over-range microwave


Are the grease filters clean?

If you have a charcoal filter, make sure it's not clogged, too. These must be replaced, not cleaned.

In most cases, GE can recommend a "drop-in" replacement oven if you tell them the model number.

They should be able to tell you if larger ones will work in your current slot.

I need a charcoal filter


The GE spec sheets for what is the right charcoal filter are incorrect. You will never find the right one. I have this same microwave and had same problem. I called a local appliance company and they gave me Part No. WB06X10359 and when I googled this part it was not the right dimensions. I finally found the perfect solution. Go to www.rangehoodsfilter.com (Filter Factory-TTN Inc.) and they are customing making the filter for me. I spoke to Dave this morning from Filter Facotry and he's making me one with the following dimensions - 5 7/8" x 13 1/4" x 1/4". The cost is $16.95. If this fits I will order more. The more you order, the cost per unit goes down.

Cannot remove the front grill of GE Micro to replace filter


I have a new ge 1540 and needed to remove the grill to install the charcoal filter.

After removing the two screws on top, you need to slide the grill about 1/2" to the left. Then the grill will wiggle loose and can be removed.
