It doesn't have to vent outside. These are designed to recirculate the filtered air back into the room. If you cook without a range hood now it will work fine for you.

We have a sharp model 1470a carousel. we can enter data on the keyboard but the mwave does not staRT. eX: HIT 'BAKED POTATO', IT DOES NOT START. HIT 15 SECONDS AND THEN RUN AND IT DOES NOT START....

I would suspect that you have a bad door switch or mount, or perhaps the "Start" pad on your keypad is bad.

The quickest way to check is to hit the "Minute Plus" pad and see if the oven cooks.

If not, it's a door switch or switch mount issue, either the top or bottom one. See my complete text file on door switch trouble here.

If it cooks, then your keypad is defective. It is part number FUNTKB107MRE0 (note zeroes, not ohs) and you can order one from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

We have a sharp 1480 and have to mount it with no outside vent. Can this be done?

Most of these over the range models come already set up for unvented operation. That is, set up for use with no outside vent. The oven will filter air through the a charcoal filter inside the upper grill and the vent covers underneath. If you ever wish to change the operation to allow the unit to vent outdoors, you need to change the direction of the blower fan assemby inside the top of the microwave oven. These instructions should be listed in the installation manual that comes with your oven.

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.

R1610 microwave

It's called a vent louver. You'll need the exact model # from inside the microwave when inquiring to get the correct color.

Check with or call them toll free @ 1-877-894-0035 to order. (I think they're somewhere in the $35 range.

Sharp R 1470A door panel

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

There may also be a piece on the side edge of the door which needs to come off, too.

You can probably find an exploded view by entering your model number here:
