SOURCE: Outside venting GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800

Your vent flap could be taped or it could be faulty installation not allowing the vent to open. If you take the front vent cover off, you should be able to reach in above the fan unit and gently push the vent flap up, it should move freely with no binding. If it doesn't it is taped or blocked. If it is taped, gently putting upward pressure on the flap might release the tape. If that doesn't work the vent installation is blocking the flap. You might have to remove the unit from the wall (two people to do this) or disassemble the vent duct above the microwave and rework the interface for clearance.

hope this helps,

SOURCE: GE spacemaker dryer won't start

Have you tried keepin the dryer door open, depressing the safety switch which enables the dryer to work when it is closed, and then turn on the dryer to see if it turns at all? Sometimes its the smallest things that cause these problems. That switch that gets pressed when the door closes, sometimes malfunctions. Sometimes the door of the dryer gets out of whack and doesnt really make contact with the switch enough to trigger the flow of electricity.

SOURCE: The door handle on my GE Spacemaker XL model

If the outer door is not broken. All you have to do is replace the handle. You will need to access the door handle mounting screws and remove them to replace the door handle. To access the screws on MOST microwave ovens, you must remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. This can be accomplished by using a small screwdriver or putty knife and carefully insert along the seam of the inner panel and pry the plastic up. Work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass to pop the panel loose. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that shields you from harmful microwaves.

With the inner panel removed, the door handle screws are visibile and can easily be accessed with a screwdriver. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel, gradually working your way around the perimeter of the door glass to ensure it snaps back into place and seats properly.

This repair can be done with the door in place, or you can remove it for easier access. If you decide the remove the door, open it all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. On some microwaves, you may have to remove the upper grill cover over the door (if equipped) to accommodate door removal. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.

NOTE: Some doors have a hinge pin that needs to be removed, or screws holding the door in place at the hinge.

You can view an exploded view diagram of your microwave at pcappliancerepair.com for reference. Just type in your model number and locate the parts listing for the door. The part number for the door handle is WB15X10020. If the outer panel is damaged, you may have to replace the entire door. The part number is WB55X991. The cheapest web source I have found the handle listed is appliancepartspros.com for $47. The entire door, however, sells for $110 at pcappliancerepair.com.

The RF inside the cavity of a microwave oven is actually controlled by the RF shield in the glass. As long as the glass is intact and the inner door facing is not bowed, warped or cracked, you will not have to worry about RF leakage (even with the handle broken off).

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hello

Make sure you have a 30amp two pole breaker. Also, it could be a heater problem.

How to vent exhaust outside


bea12bfe-3a65-4764-8544-5bc63391c2dc.jpg9dbdeaa6-0b81-4926-ab21-2206dc8f6420.jpg6bfcce66-f35e-4950-b5c4-5ba9eff2c34c.jpgI usually choose an outside wall if possible to vent outside. You can buy a rear vent that is superior to a dryer vent. When this isn't possible you need a rectangular duct going up through your cabinet and up through your ceiling. hopefully you have an attic or you have to switch to a 5 inch tube going sideways (above your cabinets (if there is space) to the outside wall. If it goes into an attic you have to cut through the shingles to a vent made for bathroom and or hood vents. The motor and blower assembly inside your microwave is designed to turn to be front facing, rear facing or vertical facing. Just unscrew or break out the side that you need to vent through.

Cannot locate lint trap to fit my wsm2420 sazww washer dryer combo ge parts no will not fit


In the Kenmore equivalent, the lint trap is on the back wall of the interior of the dryer. If GE is the same then you'll see two vents at the back inside, one is the intake (where hot air enters), the other is the outtake, which contains a lint trap. You might have mistaken both for nonremovable vents. But one of them is removable. It should have finger holes or something to grab. Just pull it and it will pop out without difficulty. It's probably a two-piece unit (a grate on the dryer side and a screen on the exhaust side, with a space in between for collecting lint), which snaps or slips apart easily, then you can clear the lint, and then snap or slip it back together and just push it back in place in the dryer.

My GE spacemaker dryer has heat but very little air flow. We cleaned the air vent but it didn't help, what else might be wrong? Thanks so much.


Make sure it is clean from the blower wheel to the vent exit. Make sure the blower isn't slipping on the motor shaft. Eric

GE Dryer shuts off w/ blinking and beeping


I just fixed that problem with mine. I tried many, many things. Final solution was vacumming out the holes in the rear of the drier. (Prior to that, I removed the lint filter and holder, checked all connections and vacummed out that area. I unplugged the vent hose to confirm there was no cluggs. I found resetting the breaker would work for about a half hour.) Just vacum out the rear of the dry. Not only will the beeping stop, but as an added bonus, you cloths will dry much faster!!!
