If the top of it butts aginst your cabinets you will have to take the bolts from the inside of your cabinets around the front area that that are holding it up out (use 2 people) once they are out it "should" still hang there, next step slowly lift it an inch or so (then you will be no longer on the back suppot) again use 2 people, then you can pull straight out. hope this is what you are looking for.

The GE Spacemaker series of microwave ovens are designed to be installed above an oven range, freeing up counter space in your kitchen. Some of these Spacemaker models are connected to an outside venting system to carry kitchen vapor and odors outside. Other Spacemaker models utilize a ductless system to do this. Removing a GE Spacemaker microwave oven isn't a difficult task, but, because of the size of some of the oven models, it is a two-man operation. Have a question?

Things You'll Need

  • Assistant
  • Sharp knife
  • Phillips screwdriver
Instructions
    • 1 Open the cabinet above where the Spacemaker microwave oven is installed. If you see a vent in the cabinet leading to the Spacemaker oven below, your Spacemaker is vented. This vent needs to be disconnected before continuing with removal. Disconnect the vent either by loosening the duct clamps or by cutting the duct tape away with a sharp knife. Pull the vent out of the top of the oven.
    • 2 Have an assistant support the oven from below. Loosen the mounting screws connected to the Spacemaker through the cabinet bottom. Loosen the screws by turning counterclockwise with the Phillips screwdriver.
    • 3 Unplug the Spacemaker from the socket in the cabinet.
    • 4 Continue loosening the screws while your assistant holds the oven in place. Once the screws are removed, have your assistant slowly lower the Spacemaker down by lowering the front face at a 45-degree angle.
    • 5 Feed the power cable for the Spacemaker through the hole in the bottom in the supporting cabinet.
    • 6 Help your assistant slowly pull the Spacemaker forward and out of the mounting brackets on the rear wall. Once the Spacemaker is cleared of the mounting cabinet and rear wall, set it down.
    • 7 Remove the mounting bracket from the rear wall by loosening the screws.

Jvm230wl I want to replace my over the range GE JVM230WL model but I'm not sure the exact dimensions. It appears to be a snug fit in the bracket so the measurements need to be manufacture specific. Also,...


GE Customer Service is here. They may be able to tell you if there is a "drop-in" replacement available for your model.

Otherwise, you'll have to take down the old bracket then mount another model in the space.

Need installation instructions for otr microwave please


I just pulled my ge spacemaker xl1800 out. The mounting plate installs on the wall and two 4-6 inch bolts go through the cabinet above and into the top-front of the unit. The two top mounting holes are about 8 1/2 in. from the back of the unit and about 1 1/4 in from the side. If you don't have the mounting bracket that comes with the unit, you will have to use a 2x4 or similar to support the back & bottom of the unit.

If the OTR is the same model, the mounts should be the same. As long as you use the same bolts/screws from the old one, or the same length new bolts/screws, it should be a fairly simple exchange.

I have a Ge spacesaver model #JVM1350 microwave that I picked up at a sale, and was wondering when installing if the bolts on top go directly thru the cabinet bottom or is there a bracket? Thanks


I assume you also have the wall mount plate with your oven.
That wall mount carries the bulk of the ovens weight and you normally do use the long screws to bring the front of the oven up to the bottom of the cabinet above the unit. Filler blocks made to fit and to the correct thickness ( to fill the gap between the bottom of the cabinet and the top of the oven) are usually made so that the oven 'nests' snuggly to the underside of that cabinet. Without templates to get holes properly lined up.. they aren't that easy to locate the clearance holes in that cabinet. You can get user manual and installation details at this GE website..
