Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

We installed a GE JVM1750 and rotated the fan to recirculate the air. Air blows out the vent in the front, but does not pull air in from the bottom.... any ideas?

I would first suggest that you consult the owner's manual and installation guide.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You may have a clogged charcoal filter so that should be checked. They need to be replaced about every six months or so.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts and filters by entering your full model number here.

When turning Fan on (any speed), top vent grille blowing lots of air, but not pulling air underneath


some microwaves vent to the exterior. check outside for a vent. If it is a recirculating model, perhaps the filters are plugged, the vent pathway is blocked (packaging material) or a loose panel at the back so that the exhaust fan air is leaking out somewhere else. I don't know what else it could be unless the fan is loose on the motor shaft and the fan motor is running but the fan blades are not moving air.

How do I change my MMV4205BAS to vent (recirculate) out of the front vent instead of the top vent.


Paul, if you look on top of the microwave before you install it you will see where the fan is located at the back edge. There should be 2-4 screws that hold it in place. Remove the screws and pull the fan up and out of the microwave and rotate the unit 90 degrees towards the front of the microwave and put it back in and replace the screws. That should be all that you have to do to get it to vent out the front.

GE Spacemaker XL1800 vent fan doesn't pull air from beneath


On the exhaust system (top of unit) there is a small metal 'damper' that is most likely stuck shut. If that is all clear then you have a problem in the duct work of the home.

Have whirlpool gold accuwave micro hood combo model# GH51884XPS5


The inspector is correct, air should be coming through the top louvers, although you sometimes will have a little air coming from the sides and back. Drop the microwave and see which way the blower is rotated, towards the louvers or towards the back or top. Some units also have a panel that blocks the venting from going the wrong way. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Recirculation fan does not pull in air/steam/smoke


The issue is that the fan on that unit is a reconfigurable fan. If there is a vent, you install the fan one way, if there is no vent pipe to the outside, you install the fan another way. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/294916/Maytag-Mmv4205.html?page=9#manual

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.
