Question about Microwave Ovens

2 Answers

We received this mirowave as a replacement. We would like to install it, but cannot figure out the trick to removing the ventgrille to get to the mounting screws. We have removed the two screws holding it on and can give some movement but do not want to break it. Help.

This is a bit difficult because you do not list a model number, or even a brand name.
Some over the range microwaves have a few screws at the front edge of the top into the front grill. After removing screws in grill (front and/or top) many must be shifted a inch or so to the left to allow removal of the grill. Most OTR microwaves do not even require removal of the grill to remove micro from cabinet. Just remove screws from inside cabinet (cabinet floor into roof of microwave), allowing microwave to pivot down and forward, then lifting micro off back metal mounting plate.
Of course there have been many different mounting methods over the years, which is why listing a model number is important. (for example, the early OTR's: Remove top grill after removing it's two phillips head screws, remove right side grease filter on bottom, remove metal cover hiding multi pin electric plug, unplug multi pin plug, remove three phillips head screws from near front edge of microwave oven's bottom, side micowave forward out of outer case, proceed to remove outer case from cabinet)

How do I replace the fuse


Unplug mirowave, remove top, "several screws" look to the right where the keypad control board is, now look down where you will find a circuit board, nearby the fuse should be visable, "clipped in" pop it out and replace with the same current rating, assemble before test, "lethal voltages present"

How do i replace the inside light in a ge mirowave model jvm1790bk


The inside light is not meant to be user replaced, so you would have to remove the oven from the wall to do it.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts (such as the bulbs) by entering your full model number here. That's how you can find where the bulb is.

The oven is not heating up but everything else is working.What is the problem


More than likely the Magnatron has gone bad. this is the device that atcually creates the micro waves that create the heat. They go bad after several years of use. They can be replaced but mirowave ovens are generally cheap enough to get a new on instead of repairing the old one.

GE profile mirowave JVM1350WW002. Handle broken


Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

If by chance you have that model and wish to replace it, GE customer service (found here) should be able to tell you what the "drop-in replacement" is for that model.

If that solution is not what you need, please reply back and clarify your problem.

Otherwise...
