Basically, you don't, but if you'really dedicated, you could find a sheet metal shop in the phone book and have them make a different case for the oven.

Is is cost effective to fix this 1997 model when it completely quit working


Probably not cost effective. Your measurements suggest a standard size microwave. Take them down to a big box store and compare with models on display. note where the plug comes out and whether you have a vent or not. Most can be made vented or ventless when installing.

Installing a microwave / convection oven above a stovetop


Needs to be properly vented to outside the house. Only install a microwave that's designed for over-stove use in this space.

Determine venting requirements


When you initially unpackage the microwave oven it is already set up for RECIRCULATION mode (which is VENTLESS). However, since the unit recirculates air rather than exhausting it out through the wall or roof, it usually uses a couple of small charcoal filters behind the upper grille and mesh filters on the underside that have to be changed or cleaned periodically. These filters will accumulate grease and dirt over time and should be periodically checked in order to maintain proper ventilation and air flow. Information pertaining to the location and care of the filters is explained on Page 4 of your Owner's Manual.

NOTE: If you wish to convert to a VENTED system, the instructions are listed on Page 4 of the Installation Guide.

If you do not have either manual you can obtain copies at managemylife.com. Just type in your model number as "GMH3174XVB" and you will find the manuals listed in a .pdf (Adobe) format that can be printed or downloaded for FREE.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Can this microwave be vented to the outside?


Yes, this microwave will vent either out through the top or the back. A damper will be needed if it was not saved when the unit was installed. A list of other items are listed in the installation instructions at this link To GE.

Oven is installed not outside vented. There is


It could be that the filter elements are clogged and need to be cleaned. Remove then from the underside of the micro hood and clean them using a good quality cleaner, such as Simple Green. Clean and allow to air dry before reinstalling.

While the filter elements are out, you can check for obstructions and run the fan to see if it is better without the filters installed.

If there is no noticeable increase in the air flow, it is possible that the exhaust vent baffle was not installed correctly, when the mircrowave was first installed.

Hope you found this Very Helpful and best regards!

Locks up and powers down during use leaves a F2 display on the clock window


Can't tell by pict for sure, IF this is a Microwave that is vented. Is it possible your vent it needs to be cleared. Sounds like possible moisture in the microwave, This would shut it down in the middle of a cycle. The moisture would happen from poor or clogged venting.
