Hi,

Grease Filters The efficiency of your downdraft depends a clean filter. Frequency of cleaning depends on the type of cooking you doGrease filters should be cleaned at least once a month. Never operate the downdraft without the filters in place.
I got my ge profile - 85c789b.jpg To remove: Pull the filters out by grasping them and pulling straight up.
To clean: Soak and then agitate in a hot detergent solution. Light brushing may be used to remove embedded soil. Rinse, shake and remove moisture before replacing. Filters may also be cleaned in the dishwasher. With careful handling, the filter will last for years. If replacement becomes necessary, order the part from your dealer

My husbands wants to know how to clean the air filters that are under the spacemaker icrowave oven and above the stove ?


If your unit is venting to the outside, you would be using one or two grease filters, which can be cleaned, usually with warm soapy water.

If your unit is set to recirculate, then you should be using a charcoal filter, which cannot be cleaned, and must be replaced.

Details and instructions are to be found in your owner's manual.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts (including filters) by entering your full model number here.

How to set it to high, med or low


Grease filters can be cleaned, according to your manual.

If you've misplaced yours, it's online here.

Charcoal filters cannot be cleaned and must be repaired.

From the manual:

Reusable Grease Filters
The reusable grease filters should be cleaned at
least once a month. Never operate the
microwave without the filters in place. In
situations where flaming might occur on
surfaces below the hood, filters will stop the
entry of flames into the unit.

To Remove Grease Filter
To remove grease filter, grasp the “finger hold”
on the filter and slide to the rear. Then pull filter
downward and to the front. The filter will drop
out.

To clean Grease Filter
To clean grease filters, soak and then agitate
filter in solution of hot water and detergent. Do
not use ammonia or ammonia products because
they will darken the metal. Light brushing can
be used to remove embedded dirt. Rinse, shake
and remove moisture before replacing.

To Replace Grease Filter
To replace grease filter, slide the filter in the
frame slot on the back of the opening. Pull filter
upward and to the front to lock into place.

Determine venting requirements


When you initially unpackage the microwave oven it is already set up for RECIRCULATION mode (which is VENTLESS). However, since the unit recirculates air rather than exhausting it out through the wall or roof, it usually uses a couple of small charcoal filters behind the upper grille and mesh filters on the underside that have to be changed or cleaned periodically. These filters will accumulate grease and dirt over time and should be periodically checked in order to maintain proper ventilation and air flow. Information pertaining to the location and care of the filters is explained on Page 4 of your Owner's Manual.

NOTE: If you wish to convert to a VENTED system, the instructions are listed on Page 4 of the Installation Guide.

If you do not have either manual you can obtain copies at managemylife.com. Just type in your model number as "GMH3174XVB" and you will find the manuals listed in a .pdf (Adobe) format that can be printed or downloaded for FREE.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I am trying to remove the filter from a tappan range hood model HD1442I I see clips on each side of the filter but they don't want to move.


They are more than likely stuck from grease take a butter knife and slid it between the hood and the screen and break the grease seal all around the screen then try removing it by pulling on the tabs at the same time in one direction away from the frame it should come out. You can go to Wal Mart and buy Super clean to clean the grease out of it and the hood as well. Be sure to wear rubber gloves when using the super clean, it's in the automotive section if yo have a spray bottle you can buy the gallon jug it's like $7.00 for a gallon and $4.99 for 10 oz. spray bottle and I use it on everything cars stoves washing machines and any appliance that needs cleaned it is a very powerful cleaner. Hope this helps, if this does not do the trick let me know and I will give ya some more advice but pretty sure it's just the spattered grease holding it in place. Hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

I have included a link to take you to GE and your user manual which can be viewed or printed.
To remove the grease filter:
To remove,
slide it to the
side using the tab. Pull it
down and out.
To clean the grease filter,
soak it and then swish it
around in hot water and
detergent. Don’t use
ammonia or ammonia
products because it will
darken the metal. Light
brushing can be used to
remove embedded dirt.
Rinse, shake and let it dry
before replacing.
To replace, slide the filter
in the frame slot on the
left side of the opening.
Pull up and to the right
to lock into place.
To remove the charcoal
filter, disconnect power at
the main fuse or circuit
breaker panel or pull
the plug.
To change the charcoal filter:
Remove the top grille by
removing the 2 screws that
hold it in place. Slide the
filter towards the front of
the oven and remove it.

Fan has a humming noise and locking up


a.if there were a dead bird inside, you'd know it from the smell! if the outside vent has the proper hood on it, it's doubtful a bird could get into it. possibly a roof-rat, but still- the smell!
b. have you 'de-greased' the filter lately? clogged filter can cause airflow problems, as well as allowing fan blades to become greased up and unbalanced, which could cause a noisy condition. if you can- remove the filter unit and check the fan blades for crud. use a gentle application of windex, rubbing alcohol, or some other gentle solvent to clean the blades. the leading edges usually pick up the most crud. you should be able to see this! carefully, using q-tips, or a small brush, clean off the crud! the fan's probably out of balance. WD40 works pretty well, too. also lubricates the shaft bushing that the blades are attached to. make sure the fan is turned off! duh!! good luck! also- soak the filter in hot water and a good de-greaser for a while, 'til you can see light through it. it's probably aluminum mesh- so use very hot water and a goodly amount of 'grease cutting' dish detergent. rinse well.
once again- good luck! the filter is probably held in place by clips. once removed, you will probably need a flashlight to work on the fan blades. put paper towels, or newspaper down to catch drips!

Kitchen Hood


Hi absimp,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You are having trouble cleaning your downdraft hood...you are able to remove filters and clean but there seems to be grease build on the hood as well....The smell is really bad but you can't get down in the hood to clean. Is there anyway to remove the hood in order to clean it better??

The short answer is; not really. But don't be dicouraged yet, you shouldn't have to . There is a brush on a long handle that looks like the kind of brush you would use to wash a glass. I wrap the brush part with a small cloth that is wet with cleaner and just use from above rinsing the cloth as nessessary. If you have trouble finding a brush long enough just go to a plumbing supply and buy a brush made for cleaning the soot out of a boiler. If they know your problem they weill be happy to help.

Feel free contact me again!
