The GE Spacemaker series of microwave ovens are designed to be installed above an oven range, freeing up counter space in your kitchen. Some of these Spacemaker models are connected to an outside venting system to carry kitchen vapor and odors outside. Other Spacemaker models utilize a ductless system to do this. Removing a GE Spacemaker microwave oven isn't a difficult task, but, because of the size of some of the oven models, it is a two-man operation. Have a question?

Things You'll Need

  • Assistant
  • Sharp knife
  • Phillips screwdriver
Instructions
    • 1 Open the cabinet above where the Spacemaker microwave oven is installed. If you see a vent in the cabinet leading to the Spacemaker oven below, your Spacemaker is vented. This vent needs to be disconnected before continuing with removal. Disconnect the vent either by loosening the duct clamps or by cutting the duct tape away with a sharp knife. Pull the vent out of the top of the oven.
    • 2 Have an assistant support the oven from below. Loosen the mounting screws connected to the Spacemaker through the cabinet bottom. Loosen the screws by turning counterclockwise with the Phillips screwdriver.
    • 3 Unplug the Spacemaker from the socket in the cabinet.
    • 4 Continue loosening the screws while your assistant holds the oven in place. Once the screws are removed, have your assistant slowly lower the Spacemaker down by lowering the front face at a 45-degree angle.
    • 5 Feed the power cable for the Spacemaker through the hole in the bottom in the supporting cabinet.
    • 6 Help your assistant slowly pull the Spacemaker forward and out of the mounting brackets on the rear wall. Once the Spacemaker is cleared of the mounting cabinet and rear wall, set it down.
    • 7 Remove the mounting bracket from the rear wall by loosening the screws.

Need installation instructions for the spacemaker GE microwave oven model JVM164owj01


Here is the link to the installation manual. Cut and paste on the address bar of your browser. http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-40409-1.PDF It is possible to do it by yourself, but its a royal pain in the a**, so have someone available to help you lift it into place and hold it while you get the screws into the cabinet above. You could use sheet rock anchors to put the mounting bracket on the back wall, but I would really suggest getting the mounting screw into wall studs instead, even if you have to drill a hole or two through the mounting bracket.

How do I remove an old wall mounted Microwave.


I just removed mine this morning and was having the same problem, though mine did have the screws above going into the unit. You may have to pop the front vent cover off to locate the screws going to the wall bracket, if so remove those. Also,there are 2 tabs on the bottom of the wall bracket that the back bottom edge of the microwave slip into, keeping the microwave from being pulled forward. Tilt the microwave slightly forward and push the bottom back edge of the microwave up to clear the tabs. Hope this helps.

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.

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...

There are 3 mounting screws that anchor the microwave to the cabinet above it and a bracket on the wall behind it. Once you remove the mounting screws from the top, pull the oven straight out from the front and it will slide off the wall bracket.
