Dropped grease filter

Hello, i removed the two side by side grease filters to clean and when i tried to replace them one of them dropped down the opening into the area below. i tried to retrieve it but area is very narrow and deep. i can't see it at all or feel it when i stuck a stick in there to see how far down it is. when i opened cabinet below to try and retrieve from underneath, it is all enclosed in metal casing and there's no obvious opening or access panel. i left the telescoping downdraft in the up position because i'm concerned that if i try to close it the fallen filter will get in way or keep it from closing because of where it has fallen. i've never used one of these telescoping types before, it came with house we bought recently, and there is no owners manual. i called ge help line and they were no help and wanted to send a service call and also checked out online manual and it didn't say anything about this problem, at least as far as i could see. i hope you can help. can it be retrieved, either from above or below? did it fall into an area that will not affect closing of the telescoping section. is it just gone and i need to replace the lost filter? thanks for your help.

How to set it to high, med or low

Grease filters can be cleaned, according to your manual.

If you've misplaced yours, it's online here.

Charcoal filters cannot be cleaned and must be repaired.

From the manual:

Reusable Grease Filters
The reusable grease filters should be cleaned at
least once a month. Never operate the
microwave without the filters in place. In
situations where flaming might occur on
surfaces below the hood, filters will stop the
entry of flames into the unit.

To Remove Grease Filter
To remove grease filter, grasp the “finger hold”
on the filter and slide to the rear. Then pull filter
downward and to the front. The filter will drop

To clean Grease Filter
To clean grease filters, soak and then agitate
filter in solution of hot water and detergent. Do
not use ammonia or ammonia products because
they will darken the metal. Light brushing can
be used to remove embedded dirt. Rinse, shake
and remove moisture before replacing.

To Replace Grease Filter
To replace grease filter, slide the filter in the
frame slot on the back of the opening. Pull filter
upward and to the front to lock into place.

Does this D.E. filter have to be cleaned 2x a year?

You need to break down and clean this filter one time each year but twice wont hurt at all.
First get a five gallon bucket for garbage. Then mark the shell of the filter and the band clamp so you can line them up later. Use a magic marker for this.
Now undo the clamp on the tank and remove. then open the air bleed to drain the tank. If you can't remove the top turn the pump on for a second or two to pop the top.
Remove build up of DE on the top of the grid assembly and discard. You will find two bolts comeing up through the plastic manifold. Remove these and clean. Now grip the manifold and with a rocking motion back and forth gently pull up. When this comes free clean and set aside. Gently seperate the grids and remove DE packed between them and discard. Remove grids and lower rack and hose off.
With the valve in BW position hose down the inside the tank. Inspect the "O" rings and replace as nessary.
Now take the manifold and turn up side down on the bucket. Take the grids and insert into the holes in the manifold being sure the small grid is in line with the space for the stand pipe. Now replace the lower rack and gently work into place. DO NOT FORCE THIS.
Tip to one side while holding together and start nuts on through bolts. Rite up the assembly and tighten these nuts.
Grease the stand pipe "O" ring and set the assembly back in place.
Replace the top and clamp lineing up the marks you made when starting. Evenly tighten the clamp.
Reset BW valve to filter and recharge.
You may want to hire someone to do this the first time and watch them before trying to do it yourself. Good luck.

Cannot remove water filter from LG 26 cu ft side-by-side in the d

Here's the only thing that worked for me in getting the water filter out of my LG refrigerator after trying for three weeks, pulling hard by hand, using high-grip gloves, and trying an oil filter wrench. You have to break or lessen the suction created by the water in the filter. Do this by first turning the filter to the Removal position (in my case, a quarter-turn to the left). Then grip the filter tight and rock it back and forth slowly as far toward the back and front of the refrigerator as possible, while keeping a bit of downward pressure on the filter. This lets the two O-Rings "walk" their way down the insert tube. After only a few pushes and pulls - voila! -- it lets go and will drop right out.
