How do i get the air vent cover off, so I can clean grease from the top.


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are trying to the air vent cover off your Frigidaire microwave, model# PLMV169DC, so you are able to clean the grease from underneath the top cover. Please follow these instructions:

1. Disconnect power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging.
2. Remove the louver mounting screws.
3. Pull the louver away from the unit.
4. Change the charcoal filter.
5. Carefully push the louver back into place and replace the screws removed in step 2.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
WP

I have Lg MV1510M microwave oven with charcoal filter which is not available any more. Is there way to replace this filter?


Let me just say that you can get charcoal like is in most water and air filters in the aquarium section of pet supply stores. Don't know what it's housed in, but if it's possible, take apart the old one and see if you can clean the enclosure somehow. Or modify a replacement.

Frigidaire microwave oven


Hello - This may or may not be specifically for your model, however these are generics instructions that I found.

To replace the light bulb to the over the range microwave you will need to follow the steps below:

1. To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging.

2. Remove the vent grill mounting screws.

3. Pull the vent grill away from the unit.

4. Remove the charcoal filter by pushing it inwards, then turn and pull it away from the unit.

5. Open light cover located behind filter mounting by carefully pulling up on the front edge.

6. Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent 30 watt bulb available from part distributor. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers.

7. Replacing the microwave oven light cover by carefully pushing into place. Replace the charcoal filter. Push the vent grill back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and replace the vent grill mounting screws.


Note: DO NOT USE BULB LARGER THAN 30 WATTS.

I don't know how to replace the charcoal filter on my Frigidaire FMV157GC microwave. There's also food between the grate and the glass on the microwave door. Help !


This is billed as the Use & Care Manual for the Frigidaire FMV156DC Microwave Oven:

ftp://ftp.electrolux-na.com/ProdInfo_PDF/Springfield/316495004en.pdf

Not sure it is the correct one but you will find instruction for cleaning the exhaust filters on page 19.

Below is the Use & Care Manual for a model direct from the Frigidaire site:

http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Springfield/316495057en.pdf

This is more helpful as on page 20 it includes illustrated instructions for removing the charcoal filter to change the oven light. Disconnect from power, remove the ventilation grate at the top to access the charcoal filter, slide back and lift to remove. With the grate removed carry out any required cleaning.

I was trying to clean charcoal filter, now not sure how to put back. Should it be horizontal or lil' slant position!


Charcoal filters cannot be cleaned. They must be replaced.

I'm assuming you have a Whirlpool brand microwave since you posted in a Whirlpool microwave category.

You can download free owners manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts and accessories (such as charcoal filters) by entering your full model number here.

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.

Wrong Grease Filter for Sharp R-1870 Microwave


I also have a Sharp over the Range Microwave oven that requires a charcoal filter. But my diagram shows that the charcoal filter goes behind the slotted panel at the top of the microwave. To reach the filter, you must remove a screw on the top edge of the microwave. This allows the panel to come off. Your charcoal filter goes there. Since your oven is new, you do not need to change this filter yet because it's not dirty. I would save it for future use.
According to my book, there are two kinds of filters with this oven. The charcoal filter is the one behind the front panel. The Grease filters ARE the two metal mesh ones. They can be cleaned with hot soapy water, or I put mine in the dishwasher.

Frigidaire plmv169dcd not venting properly. Filters are clean.


If it's equipped with a charcoal filter, that needs to be changed (not cleaned) about every 6-12 months, depending on use.

I would also very the installation and venting set up found in the installation instructions.

You can download Electrolux/Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If all that is proper, then I would suspect an obstruction such as an animal nest in the vent outlet or in the duct work.

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
