If your redesigning the oven then a good dremel cutting tool will do wonders,
just remove the outer casing and see if you can move the port,
use silver tape where necessary to move to air to rear.silver tape will hold up under heat and cold. its in the air conditioning supply section. very expensive for a roll. 25.00
if you can drop the oven a couple of inches then you can steer the air to the rear using this tape and some air dams.

Can you put and over-the-counter microwave over a stove?


Yes, that is what they are made for, As long as it has a vent that can be used to vent the smoke from cooking it can be mounted over the stove. Normally the bottom of the microwave should be mounted 16" to 19" above the stove top. The microwave must have a vent with a blower motor in order to be used above a stove top. Most have a thermal switch that will turn the microwave vent on once the temperature reaches a set point.

Samsung SMV blower installation


Most Microwaves arrive ready to vent back into the room. For filtered air returned to the room it should face toward the front. For top vent, point to the top. for rear wall vent point toward the back.

Remove a whirlpool over the range microwave oven


Jim here. In cabinet above microwave, locate 2 mounting bolts.
Place a box on the stove top to support the microwave once the mounting bolts are removed (you may wish to cover the box with a thick towel or small throw rug).
Procedure:
1. Unplug microwave.
2. Remove both mounting bolts from top of microwave (they secure it to the overhead cabinet).
3. With microwave front angled down onto box, pull some of power cord out of hole (to provide some moving space).
4. With microwave hand supported, remove box from stove top (a second set of hands would be helpful here).
5. HARD PART- detach top of microwave back from wall mounting plate by placing a hand under the bottom rear of the microwave and pushing up. (Wall mounting plate is screwed into the wall behind the microwave and provides both top and bottom support to the back of the microwave.)
6. Lower front of microwave until you can see about a 1-inch clearance between the top-rear of the microwave and the cabinet above it.
7. Firmly lift the microwave straight up and then bring forward. It should be free of the wall mounting plate.

Replace vent over stove with microwave & the


So are you saying that the vent hole doesn't line up with the microwave vent hole? I had a similar problem, it didn't matter since most of the new over the stove microwaves can vent back into the house as an option.

Does stove-top need downdraft if microwave has oven-hood combo?


We have a stove with no downdraft, and a microwave with a hood above it. It works just fine. I expect you could keep your downdraft and put a microwave without a hood above it, and that would also work. I don't think, however, you can buy an above the range mocrowave oven, that slides in on brackets, which will not have a hood.

Blower motor on above stove microwave not running


The dual fan in the back is the vent / exhaust / hood fa. It will run when you turn it on, or if the stove top gets too hot.

The other fan is the magnetron cooling fan, and it will only run when you are cooking. If it is not running, your magnetron can be destroyed.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here. That may help you a lot.

I HAVE A OVER THE STOVE MICROWAVE MODEL JVM1443BK02 WHEN SOME THING IS IN THE STOVE OR ON TOP AND I GET STEAM , IGET A F3 ON THE PANEL I KNOW IT,S THE SMART BOARD BUT I UNPLUG THE MICROWAVE FOR 10 MINUTES...


First of all, be sure the microwave's hood vent exhaust fan is on whenever you cook on the stove top! That's essential to protecting the controls of the microwave.

If this still happens even though you use the fan, then your keypad or controller is likely failing, and we can help you with our $39.95 nationwide repair service.

Please reply back and let us know how it goes.
