I would suspect a clogged grease filter (which can be cleaned) and/or charcoal filter (which cannot be cleaned and must be replaced).

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

The manual will give you the details.

Also be sure the hood vent exhaust fan is working correctly.

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

Grease dripping from bottom of microwave


sometimes when a microwave is mounted above a range some people dont always consider that you have to take into consideration that you have to go by the heat rating guidelines because it will melt the white lithium grease off the gearing and it can possibly melt some of the protective coating from the circuit boards so check if it is rated to be placed above a range and go from there

WHEN IN USE IT MAKES A BUZZING SOUND FOR APPROX. 2-3 SEC. WE SEE A ROUND SPOT WHERE THE PAINT HAS BROWNED ON THE RIGHT WALL ON THE INSIDE OF THE MICROWAVE.


Hopefully this is just some grease on the waveguide cover / stirrer cover or the cavity wall.

If it's progressed to waveguide or magnetron damage, that gets expensive.

The first step is to inspect and clean these areas and replace the cover if it is damaged.

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

If the cavity metal is chipped or discolored, the area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

If your waveguide cover / stirrer cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

My husbands wants to know how to clean the air filters that are under the spacemaker icrowave oven and above the stove ?


If your unit is venting to the outside, you would be using one or two grease filters, which can be cleaned, usually with warm soapy water.

If your unit is set to recirculate, then you should be using a charcoal filter, which cannot be cleaned, and must be replaced.

Details and instructions are to be found in your owner's manual.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Need to clean upper filter, not bottom filter, does grille pop out?


Yes the grill pops out. It snaps in to place. Behind there is a Carbon Filter, and cannot be washed. The internet says the should be changed every 3 to 6 months, yet we use our microwave once a week and change mine every 9 months.
The carbon filter elimiates smoke, odors and grease build up on cabinets and walls.

We buy filters from HoodFilterFactory because they can make any size we need.

I hop this helps

GE Profile Spacemaker Microwave Oven sparks at the center of the rotating rack. There is no sparking when it is removed. I removed and cleaned the wave panel, but that did not help. I will wait for your...


This has to be grease, food debris, or carbon, probably on the rotating rack.

Run the oven for a few seconds empty - with and without the rack - to find where it is arcing.

Then clean, sand, and repaint with high temperature appliance spray paint as needed.

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.

GE spacemaker model #jvm1350aw-002


Usually that's due to accumulated grease and / or food particles.

They must be cleaned. If they are damaged, they must be replaced.

If this continues, it can damage the paint or the wall, which would have to be sanded and repainted with high-temperature appliance paint from places like Wal-Mart or Lowes.
