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!)

Trim kit doesn't stick + front trim frame blocks the side vent


No no CVRS,

Where I live ...
No screws in that duct is a code violation

SO rather than support an operation that is
nationally recognized as a source of KITCHEN
fires...

Perhaps you should consider hiring the work
out to a PROFESSIONAL... Like your life depends on it.

Normally I support all kinds of daring DO-IT-YOURSELF
projects...

Not here... Not today!

Is there a replacement microwave for a GE JE1540, 16.75 deep, 12 3/16 hi, 23 5/8 wide?


Called GE Customer Service (thanks MicrowaveSvc), as they were very helpful. The replacement microwave (GE) is: JEB1860DMWW with new trim kit: JX2030DMWW. This are P/N for white, I am sure they have something for other than white. Total job took me about 5 hours (self install, moderate ability), where the final 1 to 1.5 hours was working on the final trim kit install. Couple of notes. This oven is about 6 to 8 inches deeper. The kit wanted about 1.5 inches more horizontal space than my original install, but I made it work. I had to shimmy the vertical space by 1 inch. Good Luck!!!

I purchased an Advantium 120 SCA 1001KSS my kitchen plan was to install this into the wall not over the cooktop. The salesperson said I could. The installation information does not support that as I think...


I'm not finding a trim kit for those, but it's best to contact GE customer service here.

That is considered an accessory, so it;s not something I commonly search for.

I would suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or defective magnetron, in that order.

The diode is a pretty easy fix, and the magnetron is more involved, but not too bad for a DIYer.

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

Thereshould also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind thecontrol panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which isvery helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html (if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html (continuity can be good even though it is bad!)

If you have to replace the magnetron, you'll need to take the oven down from the wall.
