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.

GE Spacemaker microwave oven - Sensor error

Hello :

Many models of the GE microwave have sensors that can detect humidity from the foods you are cooking. This allows the microwave to make adjustments to the power levels used to cook your food. If "Sensor Error" appears, you should either press "Clear" to cancel the mode or leave the food in the appliance longer to give the microwave more time to detect the food.

Press "Time Cook" to manually enter the time if you receive an error message when trying to use the "Sensor Reheat" mode of your GE microwave. The error message may be caused by the food item being too large or too small to detect

good luck .

GE spacemaker Power goes off and clock needs resetting

Try going to the breaker box and shutting off the power to the microwave for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn back on and set the clock. This fixed my clock and turntable both. Apparently turning off the power resets the software in the clock.

No power to GE Spacemaker Microwave

I have model GE Microwave serial # JVM2070SK02. I start to cook something and it shuts off 5~10 seconds. Keyboard is still lit up, but no clock, fan, light and you cannot operate anything on the key pad. Unplug the unit and it resets. Sometimes it cooks, sometimes it doesn't? It is getting more frequent with the shutting down problem?

Microwave resets when started

Could you explain what you mean by "resets similar to power cycle after 2 seconds of running"? Do the characters on the display get garbled, or is it like someone just unplugged the oven and plugged it back in? GE had a rash of "underperforming" magnetrons on several models. They would sometimes end up with stirrer damage, bad diodes, waveguide damage, and/or interference which "scrambles the brains" of the unit and makes them reset like they had been unplugged. The usual fix is to replace the magnetron, stirrer and high-voltage diode as a kit, and they used to cover this, but may not any more. Sometimes the unit gets run too long in a failing state and the waveguide and chassis of the oven get damaged. In that case, the oven would have to be replaced. To get the details and see if yours is affected, see this bulletin: Even if your exact unit is not on the list, you may have this problem. You can contact GE Customer Relations at 1-800-386-1215 and tell them your problem and they will put you in touch with a local authorized servicer. Feel free to post back if you need more info. I appreciate your thoughtful rating of my answer.

GE Spacemaker XL1800 - Automatic Fan

Hopefully steam didn't get up into it. Apparently it was the heat, but it may be miswired or have a defect in the hood thermostat or on the controller. I always recommend using the hood fan when cooking on the stove top or in the oven but that may have been irrelevant here. I would definitely recommend calling the GE Answer Center at 1-800-626-2005 on this one. If the installation was done correctly, then an exchange may be in order. Early in the warranty, you should be very demanding!
