Re: Where can I find the 3 1/4" x 10" through the wall...

I would suggest a home improvement store such as Builder's Square, Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.

Otherwise, maybe local heating and air conditioning companies can point you to a source.

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
    • 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.

How to vent exhaust outside

bea12bfe-3a65-4764-8544-5bc63391c2dc.jpg9dbdeaa6-0b81-4926-ab21-2206dc8f6420.jpg6bfcce66-f35e-4950-b5c4-5ba9eff2c34c.jpgI usually choose an outside wall if possible to vent outside. You can buy a rear vent that is superior to a dryer vent. When this isn't possible you need a rectangular duct going up through your cabinet and up through your ceiling. hopefully you have an attic or you have to switch to a 5 inch tube going sideways (above your cabinets (if there is space) to the outside wall. If it goes into an attic you have to cut through the shingles to a vent made for bathroom and or hood vents. The motor and blower assembly inside your microwave is designed to turn to be front facing, rear facing or vertical facing. Just unscrew or break out the side that you need to vent through.

We have a Kenmore builin icrowave with exhaust hood over the range. The exhaust fan appears to recirculate the air into the kitchen and not sending it out. This causes the cooking smell to remain inside...

some fans have a charcoal filter that needs replacing others are supposed to be vented out side by the roof or out the wall to see if the vent is going outside you will have to unmount the unit tak it down and check and see if it is conected to a duct in the celing or through the wall hope this helps

I bought a used over the range microwave oven( kenmore) I would like to know how to install it knowing there is an opening to the roof. thank you

Most Kenmore microhoods use a 3" by 10" exhaust duct. Check for correct demensions. Make sure that the existing vent is this size or that you have room to adapt to this size. There should be a damper mounted to the top of the micro which will attach to the vent duct work. You will need an outlet in the cabinet above the micohood. This should be on a circuit of it's own. The microhood should have a wall plate for the back wall. I'm going to assume there are no templates available. Hold the wall plate against the back of the micro to determine the height placement in the opening. Most install centered under and against the cabinet above. Not all do, so this will confirm. Mount the wall plate to the existing wall studs with at least 1/4" by 2-1/2" lag bolts. Bore an 1-1/4" hole in the right rear corner of the cabinet above, about 2" out from the back of the cabinet and 2" in from the side, this is not a critical measurement, it is to pass the electric cord into the upper cabinet. There are two screws that support the front of the hood. I believe they are 1/4" by 3-1/2" long. If not included, check for size. The hardwae will have them, get flat washers to fit both also. Measure from the back of the micro to the mounting holes in the top of the micro, include the wall plate in this measurement, they'll be about 10" out from the back and about 1-1/2" in from the edge, near the front, but check that measurement, they vary. Drill 3/8" holes in the bottom of the cabinet at these locations. If doing this alone, best that you move the range out. It's nice to have a helper at lifting time. With the plate on the wall and the holes in the bottom of the cabinet, your ready. Put the 1/4" screws and someting to drive them in the upper cabinet, so they'll be available. Lift the micro into the opening with the front tilted downward, hook the back of it into the bottom of the wall plate, push the cord into the upper cabinet, tilt the front of the micro up until you can start the front support screws. Start both, don't let go of the micro until you are sure that both screws are started and will support the front weight. Once you're sure, tighten both screws all the way and connect the vent. Steel tape is best for sealing up any leaks. Power up the outlet, plug in the microhood and put in the popcorn. Get a good movie and enjoy in your accomplishment. Congrats. PS: Make sure the roof vent opens when the hood is turned on, I have seen them stuck shut from grease build-up.

No vent for over the range microwave.

Have you selected a microwave yet?

many over the range types can be vented inside if a charcoal filter is used, which you must replace about every six months.

Otherwise, you will need to install a vent system in the kirtchen.

Change the venting from internal to external?

Hello staufferbi,
It is possible to redirect the vent to the outsied but it is not a simple task. First off, you will need to remove the micro from the wall cavity and reposition the blower so that it vents out the top and not the front, then cut a hole in the cabinet above the micro ( lined up to accept the rectangular duct ) These tasks require fairly good carpenmtry skills and may not be suitable for the novice.. In any event, if you do attempt this.. then once you have the duct vented through the cabinet from the top of the microm you will need to attach that to wall vent feedthru. This normally means converting the rectangular duct to 4inch round and using an elbow. Needless to say, it can be done but is fairly involved. I did not mention anything about getting a 4 inch hole thru the outside wall and not thru a wall stud.,. Outside walls are typically bearing walls and although your roof won't cave in if you cut a hole thru a stud, it isn't advisable. Then you have to make sure it is sealed thru the wall cavity and properly cut into your siding. As I said can be done but don't think it is a little job..
Good luck

There may be an option to turn that off with the keypad, but your best bet would be to contact Jenn-Air.

The manual will have their contact info or you can see:
