I recently got a GE Spacesaver XL, model JVM1320WB but did not get the installation manual. I can do most of it old school, but I need to know the minimum distance from the bottom of the unit to the cooking surface it is to be mounted above. I'll have approximately 16 inches if I install it, but I've heard I need at least 30. Any suggestions?

It's what, about 7or 8 years old? I'd buy a new one on sale. Probably not worth messing with just to squeeze out another year or two. You can pull out the Capacitor and take it to any electronics appliance repair place and have it checked for little or nothing, but if it's bad and you order a new one you have no microwave for a while. IF that's the ONLY thing wrong you're back in business.
Hi jnflanders, You've probably solved this by now, but I'll answer just in case. That part is called the stirrer motor. You can replace it yourself, as long as you have an offset phillip's head screwdriver handy. Before you order the replacement part, figure out if your stirrer is driven by a d-shaped or a square shaft. You can tell by taking off the round plate on the inside top wall of the microwave. GE makes stirrer motors for both d-shaped and square shafts, so you'll have to get the right one. Here's the d-shaped motor that fixed this problem with my microwave: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=2024961. Good luck!
Its a free country Bage, but microwave energy is extremely dangerous! Repairs are not feasible unless performed by factory personnel under warrantry, and certified. I suggest you contact the manufacturer about the problem.
