Question about GE Microwave Ovens
It is a above stove installed with vent GE Microwave Oven Model #HVM1540DN188...should I replace or is it more economical to repair?
Time to replace. A new control panel will cost almost as much as a new unit with no guarantee that something else won't fail.

You are correct the fan motor is either stuck or needs replaced.
There is no way to do this without removing the entire microwave. In case your not familiar with how microwaves work, there is a capacitor that is very large inside and can hold a charge even after it is unplugged for up to 24 hours, please take action to prevent getting shocked.

If the top of it butts aginst your cabinets you will have to take the bolts from the inside of your cabinets around the front area that that are holding it up out (use 2 people) once they are out it "should" still hang there, next step slowly lift it an inch or so (then you will be no longer on the back suppot) again use 2 people, then you can pull straight out. hope this is what you are looking for.
