How do I remove a GE spacemaker model jvm130k


I assume that it's mounted below a cabinet on the mounts supplied with the microwave. If that's the case, there are four buttons on the top of the microwave in each corner. They fit into holes in the mount then slide into depressions which hold the unit in place under the cabinet.

To release the microwave push up from the bottom then try sliding it backward first. If you are able to move it, carefully slide the whole unit until it drops through the holes and is clear of the mounts.

Be very careful because the unit is pretty heavy and you'll get its full weight when it drops through the holes.

If it doesn't move when you try to slide it rearward, try sliding it sideways in either direction. The direction you must slide it in is determined by how the mounts were installed but it should slide out fairly easily once you know which way to move it.

Internal fuse


Is this an over-the-range (OTR) microwave oven or a counter-top model? Assuming it is an OTR model, your can get to the fuse by first unplugging the microwave, then removing 2 to 4 screws over the grille vent. Remove the grille vent. Depending on the model, you either slide it to the left a little bit (1/4 inch) then pull it out, OR tilt out the top of it followed by the bottom. Now you should see 1 screw that hold the top of the control console in place. Remove it, then lift up on the control console to get past the tabs, and tilt out the top. Now, depending on the model, you may see the fuse behind the control console, or if it's not there, then remove the 1 or 2 screws that hold the metal grill vent that's located above the control console. Remove that metal grill, and your should see the fuse behind it. Sometimes that fuse blows for no good reason, other times it blows because you have a shorted high-voltage capacitor, or you may have a sticking "monitor" door switch.

Hinged exaust door on top of microwave only partially opens then repeatedly and rapidly bangs open and closed


The service manual for that model is here.

It may be a bad limit switch / detector switch in the louver circuit or there may be a bad cam in the louver.

There's a YouTube video available showing how to remove a typical over the range grille (and if necessary) control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Some additional info on disassembling louvered models:
There are two Phillips head screws on the very top of the outside of the cabinet above the vent.

When they're removed, slide the hood vent grille to the left about 1/4", then then pull it forward.

(There are three L-shaped clips that fit into a slot to hold bottom of the vent)

Then remove one screw (which holds the control panel in place) near the top of the control panel.

Once that screw is removed the panel tilts out so you can disconnect the wires and then slip it out.

Be sure to mark and/or photograph your wires so that each one gets back exactly where it was after the repair.

Reassembly is accomplished by sliding the L-shaped keepers in place, then sliding the vent grill to the right and pushing it into place.

Replacing keypad smh9187st


You can do this without removing unit from wall. First unplug unit. Next remove the two screws on the top of the unit closest to the front. These screws simply keep the up facing vent in place. Next slide the vent to the left (plastic latches on bottom hold in place) to allow vent to be removed. You should now see a single screw above the control panel. Remove it then open the microwave door. Gently slide the control panel up which will disengage the plastic latches on the panel sides. Suggest if you are going to remove the controller and replace take a picture before removing it so you know exactly how to reconnect all the wires.

Does not heat food


If the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable all come on when you press "Start" to cook, but it does not heat, then you have a defective high voltage section part (HV fuse, magnetron, etc.)

If the above 3 components do not all come on when you try to cook, then it\'s probably just a bad bottom door switch or mount.

My help file on door switches is here.

There
should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit
behind the
control panel which is
very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating
components.

available showing how to remove a typical
over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.



This additional disassembly information may apply:

Be sure the oven is unplugged.

There are two Phillips head screws on the very top of the outside of the cabinet above the vent.

When they\'re removed, slide the hood vent grille to the left about 1/4", then then pull it forward.

HOW DO YOU GET TO THE FUSE


You should remove the screws at the back of the case, they will probably be anti tamper type, but you can purchase a driver set at harbor freight or pretty much any place that sells tools. After removing the screws the case cover should slide back as the metal cover tucks under the control panel. There may be screws on the bottom as well. Make sure unit is unplugged and beware of any capacitors since they can still hold a charge.
