Was it just the exhaust fan that came on? If so this is normal when cooking on the stove for long period of time without the fan running. The heat builds up under the microwave and eventually activates the fan.

My ge micro will not stop turning


HELLO.

If by not turning mean turntable fault,the solution is given below in detail.

1 Press "Stop" to halt microwave operation.

2 Press the "Turntable" button once to turn off rotation.

3 Push the door-release button to open the microwave oven if you do not have a "Turntable" button on your control keypad.

4 Lift and remove the glass platter from the oven, then pick up the plastic track with three wheels below the platter. Set aside these parts.

5 Insert the elevated microwave cooking tray into the oven. The tray has three to four short legs that hold it above the bottom of the microwave, keeping it from interfering with the rotating bolt in the bottom center of the oven the drives the turntable. You can now place food on the elevated tray and cook normally without disrupting the drive bolt.

Thanks.

What is the minimum distance from the top of oven to the bottom of microwave


It depends greatly on the ventilation but if you use 20" above the hob, as a good starting point. If you have extractor fans, maybe less. Don't forget the grill gets hot on top of the oven but there should be at least 10" clearence between the grill top and the microwave base, more if it is gas!

Acceptable distance from cook top surface to microwave?


Sorry but your subject line got cut off. I'll assume you're talking about the distance from the cooktop to the top of the microwave (bottom of the cabinet to which it's mounted).

Here's how the installation instructions spec it:
  • "Make sure the bottom edge of the cabinet that will be above the microwave oven is at least 66" from the floor and 30" from the cooking surface."
So it's measured from the cooktop to the top of the microwave, not the bottom edge.

And I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

You can also download your owner's manual form the link I posted above.

Noise on starting up


If the unit is cooking ok, then it sounds like possibly your cooling fan has the blower wheel rubbing and when the rpm's come up, the blower wheel migrates away from the rubbing surface. It is very common for a blower wheel to loosen up, or a bearing in the bottom end of the blower to fail, causing the sound.
If you dare to venture into the unknown, you can investigate the noise and maybe be able to adjust the attitude of the blower wheel or fan blade, which ever is loose

Post me if I can be of more help.

Thank you,

First you should be sure the ventilation is correct through the oven.

If you don't feel air through the vents when it's running, that needs to be addressed.

Also, it's important to wipe off the interior surfaces whenever moisture seems to be accumulating.

Also, it's recommended to leave the door open a few minutes after cooking to allow it to dry.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

Above range microwave


According to the installation instructions for this model, the distance from the cooktop surface to the bottom edge of the cabinet (and thus the top of the microwave) must be 30" or more.
