Does the maytag mmv1164ww1 micro/hood combo require outdoor venting?


No .. it can also be recirculated . you will need charcoal filters if you do so. There is a specific charcoal filter for each microwave hood. Any appliance part dealer would carry it ( you will need to give them the micro hood model number ) or you can order them online through Whirlpool parts website ( whirlpool owns maytag)

We have a sharp 1480 and have to mount it with no outside vent. Can this be done? patqlt@verizon.net


Most of these over the range models come already set up for unvented operation. That is, set up for use with no outside vent. The oven will filter air through the a charcoal filter inside the upper grill and the vent covers underneath. If you ever wish to change the operation to allow the unit to vent outdoors, you need to change the direction of the blower fan assemby inside the top of the microwave oven. These instructions should be listed in the installation manual that comes with your oven.

Samsung Microwave for over the range vent issue


Most over the range models can be vented to the outside, or they can be set up (sometimes requiring a special adapter) to recirculate with a charcoal filter.

It depends on the model, and you would of course have to consult the installation instructions to be sure.

You can download many Samsung over the range microwave installation instructions here.

You may need the free DJVU viewer to view or print your manual.

Replacing old over-range microwave


Are the grease filters clean?

If you have a charcoal filter, make sure it's not clogged, too. These must be replaced, not cleaned.

In most cases, GE can recommend a "drop-in" replacement oven if you tell them the model number.

They should be able to tell you if larger ones will work in your current slot.

I need a charcoal filter


The GE spec sheets for what is the right charcoal filter are incorrect. You will never find the right one. I have this same microwave and had same problem. I called a local appliance company and they gave me Part No. WB06X10359 and when I googled this part it was not the right dimensions. I finally found the perfect solution. Go to www.rangehoodsfilter.com (Filter Factory-TTN Inc.) and they are customing making the filter for me. I spoke to Dave this morning from Filter Facotry and he's making me one with the following dimensions - 5 7/8" x 13 1/4" x 1/4". The cost is $16.95. If this fits I will order more. The more you order, the cost per unit goes down.

Where is the charcoal filter?


There is no charcoal filter unless you replaced the standard filter with a carcoal filter. Also, it may have m=been changed to a charcoal filter if the unit was alterd during installation as a re-circulating vent, not vented to the outside via the roof or wall.

The filter (Charcoal or not) is on the bottom of the unit. Put your head under the microwave and look up, there it is.

Microwave runs and then stops, power is good.


Your test demonstrates to me that the magnetron is overheating.

This overheating can be due to the internal cooling fan's not running, a blockage in the air ducts, or just a bad magnetron.

(When I speak of the internal cooling fan, I do not mean the hood / exhaust / vent fan located behind the grille across the top.)

You'd have to consult your manual as to whether the charcoal filter should be used and how and whether it affects cooling.

Also, the charcoal filter cannot be cleaned,. It must be replaced when dirty or at intervals suggested by your manual.

If you do not have your owner's manual, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

Please reply back here if you still need help.

Microwave message says to replace charcoal filter. User manual states charcoal filter is used if unit is not vented outside. Our unit is vented outside


External vent systems have the charcoal filter removed, generally at the time of installation, as it is not needed for this application.
The charcoal filter removes odors from internal recycled airflow.
There should be an aluminum grease filter that you can remove to clean in a warm soapy solution, let dry, and reinstall.

How to clean the air filter of my goldstar microwave model # MV1526B/01


That sounds like the charcoal filter. It cannot be cleaned, and must be replaced. From the owner's manual:

CHARCOAL FILTER REPLACEMENT

If your oven is vented inside, the charcoal filter should
be replaced every 6 to 12 months, and more often if
necessary. The charcoal filter cannot be cleaned.

To order a new charcoal filter, contact the Service
Center.

1. Remove the two vent grille mounting screws.
(2 middle screws)

2. Tip the grille forward, then lift it out

To get a new filter, you can try local appliance parts stores or see customer service or find servicers here: http://us.lgservice.com

GE Microwave JVM1441BH04: Safe to reconnect replacement stirrer & turntable motors after accidentally burning out the turntable motor? GE JVM1441BH04 Over Stove Microwave: Tapping noise was coming from the 21v AC stirrer motor which sits atop the cooking chamber. I disconnected the two connecting leads, unfastened the single screw holding it on, placed in on my scanner glass to get a high rez photo of all the specifics listed on the motor label. Bad news: While waiting for the scan to finish, I warmed my coffee in the microwave on the highest heat for 30 seconds. I subsequently discovered the 21v AC turntable motor, which had been working just fine, was now no longer working, with infinite resistance across its terminals, and a burnt electrical smell. Both the stirrer and turntable motors are powered by a 24v tap off the magnetron fan. My theory: By running the microwave with the stirrer motor out of the circuit, I delivered excessive voltage to the turntable motor, which quickly fried. The 24v tap off the magnetron fan motor currently shows the correct 24v output. However, with both the stirrer motor and turntable motor disconnected, running the microwave for a few seconds shows approx 95v across the wire leads for both of the 21v motors. I have obtained replacement motors for both the noisy stirrer motor and the fried turntable motor. My question: Can I simply reconnect both motors in their proper locations, vow never again to run one without the other connected, and all will be well? Or will the newly installed motors simply be fried in a matter of seconds?
