How do you safely remove a ge spacemaker microwave oven from its wall mount?

This is a two person job. You have to have one person holding it and the other takes the screws out from the cabinets above the unit. There should be two screws that are inside the cabinet that hold it up against the bottom of the cabinets. When those are loose you can slide the unit forward on the rails that attach to a large wall bracket. Or some use a lift type latch to the wall bracket.

I have a whirlpool microwave model GH7155XKT. The door cover is cracked badly and I ordered and received the replacement part. I can not figure out how to replace the Choke or Cover

Hi deflcsw,
I see you need a manual on how to replace you Microwave Door.
I checked the Manual does not have info regarding how to replace the Door just the Bulb and the Filters in it see here .
To be able to get information on how to replace the Microwave door you will need to contact Whirlpool 1-800-253-1301, you may need the Model and serial number so they can provide you info about the door replacement over the Phone if the door cannot be replaced by you then they can reffer you to a local center near your address for the replacement to take place or possibly get soemone out to replace it for you.
I hope this helps.
Have a nice day, Thank you for choosing Fixya,

Err3 ?

"ERR 3" means that the magnetron units have failed in the microwave. Food will not cook or heat up when the microwave is in use.

The magnetron is the main source of power and heating in a microwave. Magnets work inside a magnetron tube to create the heat and voltage needed to cook items.

Prevention/Solution: Bring the microwave back to the retailer or a repair shop for service. You may also consider purchasing a whole new microwave if the prices are cheap enough.

Good luck.

Can you provide guidance on how to install this microwave? Trying to decide if I should pay $120 for the store to install.

Installation of an over the range microwave is not a very difficult task as long as electrical work to provide power is not needed. If no outlet exists then an electrician will be required.

Tools that may be needed for the installation include a cordless drill, drill bit, measuring tape, masking tape, stud finder, razor knife, pencil.

A template is commonly provided for mounting hole locations that need to be drilled in the cabinet. These holes are the top mounts.

An additional template for the wall bracket is normally supplied as well. Here you will need the stud finder, it is important to locate the studs and mount the wall bracket to them.

The wall bracket serves as the bottom mount and aids in the final mounting of the microwave.

Depending on the oven's size and weight a helper may be needed to complete the installation.

Remember to be safe first and seek advice/help with any step you are unsure about.

Good luck.

Goes to cooling down and shuts down -Thermador MBY

It sounds like the magnetron is overheating. There can be several causes:

- the vents are blocked
- the outside outlet of the air duct is damaged or has an animal nest in it
- the filters need to be cleaned (if grease filters) or replaced if charcoal filters
- the magnetron is failing

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.


If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can possibly download it here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here. I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

There are two phillips head screws holding the unit in from the top and a slotted bracket on the wall or cabinet back. Usually you can remove the screws from the cabinet directly above the unit. Support the microwave from the front while removing the screws. CAUTION ! Use two people! While holding the unit level,lift up underneath the rear of the microwave to release it from the slotted bracket in the back and bring the microwave straight out.

New Microwave

Well one would presume you could simply measure the bracket and the microwave, and ask a retailer for the dimensions of units with similar dimensions.

They may also have this bracket and be able to compare the sizes before purchasing your new one.

Not knowing the dimensions of either the bracket itself or the microwave, this would be the only solution i can think of.
