Microwave vent systems are shallow with no capture area to collect your expanding water vapor, they are flat on the bottom. To increase the efficency make sure that you duct it to the outside. If you want to keep your micro/hood vent you will have to boil on the back burners, it is the nature of the product.

Unable to remove blown Blanco oven light bulb-stuck fast

I boiled the kettle, added the hot water to a tray and placed it in the oven, shut the door then left it for 10 minutes so it steams up the oven (make sure power is off first). Do the same again. Then get a multi grip spanner and place a kitchen rag over the cover and turn to the left. It does take a bit of force depending on how stiff it is, but the steam will loosen the cover. The steam also cleans the oven quite a bit too!!

A Microwave Oven works by heating water/moisture in food: if the boiling action (e.g. when boiling water) is greater than the oven exhaust fan can cope with, then the inside will steam up and fog the door glass: this is usually OK and 'normal' (this is actual the advise in cleaning up the interior of a microwave oven - steamy soapy water - see your manual).

Hope it helps.

Roommate steamed up the spacemaker by hard boiling pot of soup without running the fan. Then microwaved a cup of coffee while the steamed condition was still present. An arc sparked from the vent above...

Sounds like a problem in the high voltage side. Need to check the diode and if good the voltage at the magnetron. Should be 3.5 volts across mag and 4500 dc volts at mag. If you do not have a meter to check replace both mag and diode aprox $150.00 from GE. Pat

My burner gets excessively hot very quickly is this normal?


That right front burner is an extremely hot burner by design. It is sold as a quick power burner. The rating on it is 12,000 btu's meaning it could easily boil a pot of soup in that time.

Here is a quote from the owners manual for your range

"There is a 12,000 BTU*
burner located in the right front position. These burners offer
higher speed cooking that can be used to quickly bring water
to a boil and for large-quantity cooking."

Use the back for slower smaller cooking and front for larger and quick heating.

I hope that helps.

Crackling and popping sounds when you heat up food

thats normal water expanding and boiling off from the microwave boiling those tiny water pockets in food... sounds like popcorn sometimes.
Cover your food with a paper towel to avoid spatter on the ceiling of the microwave when this is happening.

Need to dissemble microwave oven door GE model JVM 1631 BB 002 to remove spider.

Remove the inner strip around the door called the choke. If there are no screws visable it just snaps in place and does break if you are not very careful. This will give you access to the screws holding the outer frame piece and handle on. keep in mind, any repairs done to the door will necessitate a RFe leakage inspection. Boil some water on the front burners and cook the little guy and leave the door alone.

Cleaning vents

GE Spacemaker Profile X1800.

I would take out the grills and boil them, but cannot see how to do that.

Also, the GE stove top (Model JGSP44BEY) has so much baked on crud that I may never use it. I poured a whole bottle of easy off onto it and still cannot loosen it all. Same goes for the removable parts from the burners.
