There should be although you most likely will have to pay for it. Most models only require that you take the cover off the top and put it on the back. There will be a plate on the top covering the vent hole, just take it off and place it over the vent hole on the back.

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 door on my GE advantium 120 fell off and I need to reattach it


take off the top vent cover , should be three screws ...hang the door provided nothing is broken off the door or the microwave.. after hanging put the vent cover back on. If your model has a little clip/postage size at the top hinge or if you think there is something missing at that location you may need that to keep the door from coming back off... It can be bought on line if your model needs it. some do and some don't if you found something near that area before the door fell off... then your model had one..

For all newer units the dimesnions are
15 & 3/4" high 16 & 1/2" high hole required for vent connection in rear
15" deep
Needs a 30 inch wide hole for installation

or call GE 1-800-626-2005

Use this link for all models OLD and NEW:

To get dimensions you look up installation manuals for each model.

Your microwave is not vented externally but your replacement microwave will be capable of being used in a non-external vent and an external vent cofiguration. Personally.... I would recommend the external vent installation. Either will work.

The microwave doesn't seem to be bringing the air up into the vent for exhaustion outside. It's brand new.


I presume that you can hear the fan running? If so, most over the cook top microwaves have an option to vent to the outside or simply recycle through the filter and vents above the unit. If you check your manual there should be instructions on how to change this configuration to suit your situation, but it likely needs to be done before you install the microwave.

The above manual shows how to reconfigure the microwave from recirculation (as shipped) to external exhaust setup on pages 4 - 5.

I would like to know whether the factory blower orientation for MMV4205AA had changed since 2000. Was it changed from top vent to circulating (into the room)? If it did, when did this change...


Here are the instructions for re-orentation of the blower.

The unit is shipped in the room vent configuration. The blower is re-orented for a wall vent.

Most Microwaves arrive ready to vent back into the room. For filtered air returned to the room it should face toward the front. For top vent, point to the top. for rear wall vent point toward the back.

So are you saying that the vent hole doesn't line up with the microwave vent hole? I had a similar problem, it didn't matter since most of the new over the stove microwaves can vent back into the house as an option.
