How do I change my MMV4205BAS to vent (recirculate) out of the front vent instead of the top vent.

Paul, if you look on top of the microwave before you install it you will see where the fan is located at the back edge. There should be 2-4 screws that hold it in place. Remove the screws and pull the fan up and out of the microwave and rotate the unit 90 degrees towards the front of the microwave and put it back in and replace the screws. That should be all that you have to do to get it to vent out the front.

The keypad is physically loose and seems to have lost connection. Only the 2 and 7 beep and connect, nothing else works including the vent and light.

well there is a ribbon cable that attaches the key pad to the control board. it will require removing touch panel to examine. if i remember correctly you have to remove the top grill cover usually having 2 or 3 screws.. they will either be hidden inside the luver portion right above the door or actually coming down from the top edge of the microwave... remove the top grill and then you should have a screw holding the console /keypad in place... make sure unit is unplugged while doing all this.. once you get screw out lift strghit up as there are hook latches on this to hold in place and then pull out. check ribbon cable coming from keypad to control board... if that all looks good then you have a bad touch poad and you need to order a new one... usually can locate the parts @ then hit the parts direct link up top of page... it will ask for your model number so have it ready and then in the right box pull down menu and hit model... a parts diagram will come up and pick the area control panel and it will give you a part number and prices as well as availability....good luck to you

Changing interior light on GE jvm1790

1. Unplug Oven
2. Unscrew 2 screws on top front of oven
3. Pull of front vent (might need a little force the
first time but not to much or you will crack
4. Unscrew screw facing you near the front that is
attached to metal plate on bottom of opening
behind the vent.
5. Pull out metal plate (box) carefully not to
damage any wires.
6.Bulb is in this metal box, pull out old one and
press the new one's prongs into holes (be
careful and gentle the bulb breaks easily,
don't try to pull it back out to see if it's all
the way in or you will most likely pull a
prong out of the bulb)
just firmly press bulb
into place.
6. Screw metal plate back in place.
7. Plug in oven and test bulb.
8. Unplug oven again and put vent back on with
the 2 screws.
9. Plug in, set clock and your done.

The first time I opened it up was to look for the bulb. The vent needed a little pulling to come off. The second time (to put in new bulb) it came off easier and whole thing took about 5 minutes.
Hope this helps.
Just in case: I am not a professional nor claim to be. This is based on my own experience. Yours may differ. Unless you feel totally comfortable you should contact a licensed electrician or an authorized service agent.

Change Fuse Whirlpool Gold GH7155XHS1

no the control does not come off from behind.

what you will find is the top vent grill has to come off first. it has 2 phillips screws that hold it to the top of your unit.
you will find 4 screws on the top, go ahead and take all 4 out and then pull the grill out from the top and hinge outward to remove/ once the grill is off, then there is 1 more phillips screw that holds the control board/ touch panel to the frame. remove and then lift up then out on the panel.
now that you are into the unit, make sure you have UNPLUGGED it first. the fuse is about 1 1/4 inch long white ceramic material with metal ends. you can find a new one at a radio shack or get one online for your unit. r/s has them for cheap and if that allows the unit to run again, great, but...
there was something that caused the fuse to go bad. so dont be surprised if you need a diode or capacitor to fix why the fuse went bad.

GE xl1800 active vent bulb replacement

I think the key is pulling the vent to the left.

From page 36 of the online version of the owner's manual, which also mentions the active grille's presence on some models:

Oven Light

Replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt, 20-watt
halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from your
GE supplier.

To replace the oven light, first disconnect the
power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel
or pull the plug.

Remove the top grille by taking out the screws
on top of the grille that hold it in place and
sliding the grille to the left (opening the door
makes grille removal easier).

Next, remove the light cover.

On some models, the light cover is located
in the center of the top opening. Remove the
screw that secures the light cover and lift the
cover off.

On some models, the light cover is located at the
left of the top opening. Lift the cover off.

Pinch the clips that hold the light socket in
place and lift the socket out.

Remove the bulb from the light socket by
pulling straight out. Replace with the same size
and type bulb, then replace the light socket and

Replace the grille and screws. Connect electrical
power to the oven.

Removing Old Built-In Microwave

You did not note your Make and Model. As there are many different types, all I can give you are basic directions.
First make sure the Power Cord is UN-PLUGGED from the wall.

1. Remove the Top Vent Grille Cover. There are screws holding this on, either Three you can see (one on each side and one in the center), or Open the Door and look for screws at the top of the Frame that go Up Into the grille.
2. Look in cabinet above unit for screws that hold unit up. Usually two (one on each side, front), can be more. Remove.
3. Look where Top Vent Grille Cover was removed. There should be a Long Screw or Screw-Type Lock at each( top) corner. These hold the unit tight on the Wall-Mount Plate. Remove. You should have HELP at this point as you will slide the unit forward until it comes clear of the Support Arms.

GE Profile XL 1800

It's a little more complicated than Leo2 suggested but the general concept is correct. *NOTE: Turn off power to the microwave first before servicing it!
At the top of the microwave there are three screws.
Remove the three screws and slowly pull down from the top to get the plastic airvent out of your way.
You will notice a plastic vent with two screws. Remove the forward screw and then pull from the top of the vent to access the rear screw. Now you have access to a metal plate above the fan assembly. Remove the screws at the leading edge to lift up the plate. You don't need to remove it, just lift it up!
Now you have access to the metal box over the lightbulb. Squeeze the box and the box with the light bulb inside come out as one unit. You'll know you have the correct bulb as it is attached to two white wires. Remove the bulb. Should be a halogen 120-130 volt with 35 watt brightness. Remember, halogen bulbs should never be handled with your bare hands. The grease from your fingertips heats up and the bulb burns out prematurely. Always handle these bulbs with rubber or cloth gloves. They are expensive little sucks ($7.79 at Home Depot) so handle them with care!
Good Luck ...
