Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the model is not vented
to the outside, the air will be recirculated through a disposable charcoal filter that helps remove smoke and odors. The charcoal filter should be replaced when it is noticeably dirty or discolored (usually after 6–12 months, depending on hood usage). To remove the charcoal filter, disconnect power atthe main fuse or circuit breaker panel or pull the plug. 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.

Please tell me the model number of your Unit so that i can provide you with model specific information.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Is there a filter that goes into the vent of GE Spacemaker 2.0 profile microwave (model# JVM2070SK01)?


You should first refer to your owner's manual. If for some reason you don't have it, you can download it here free.

See page 38 and 39 of the manual for info on the filters.

If your oven is set up to vent outside, it will have cleanable grease filters.

If it is set up to recirculate, it will have a charcoal filter which cannot be cleaned, but must be replaced about every 60 days.

It is part number WB2X10956 and you can order it and other parts and accessories here.

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.

My spacemaker keep dripping grease on my wall, what should I clean?


I would suspect a clogged grease filter (which can be cleaned) and/or charcoal filter (which cannot be cleaned and must be replaced).

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

The manual will give you the details.

Also be sure the hood vent exhaust fan is working correctly.

No power...


If the stove was on without the hood fan's being on, it could have put too much heat in the "innards" of the microwave. It may have opened the thermostat or thermal fuse located inside - either on the chassis of the microwave or or the magnetron. It will look something like the one in the attached photo. For helpful exploded view diagrams and to order any needed parts, you can visit the GE parts Web site or the Sears parts Web site at http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/ or http://www3.sears.com/ (the 3 is correct) In my profile, you can find a link to my site, where you can find critical safety & disassembly tips. Post back if you need more help.
