Question about GE EMO3000 Microwave Oven

GE EMO300SS microwave

Hello:  I hope you can help.  6 mo ago I bought a GE microwave and had it professionally installed.  I kept all the paperwork given to me.  It is currently venting inside.  However, I want to vent this outside and will have a handy man do this for me.  My question--there are no instructions in the owner's manual to tell me if this microwave can convert to venting outside.  I have researched and found that most if not all convert to outside, but no instructions are provided to do this convertion.  PLEASE HELP, as I can't afford to buy another one and because of the moisture (I can vegetables) i'm afraid of what will happen to my kitchen without this venting outside.

thanks for any help you can give me

    This reversing --are there instructions anywhere to reverse the vent fan?  GE doesn't have anything on their website about reversing the fan.

Yes this can be done.  The unit will need to be taken down and the vent fan will need to be reversed.

    The instructions would be in an installation manual.  You should be able to get this from an appliance parts house with the complete model # from sticker inside the mw.  All you need to do is take the fan loose and turn it 180 degrees and  it will blow the other direction.  A good handy man should be able to do this with no problem and will make sense when he looks at it.

The GE Spacemaker series of microwave ovens are designed to be installed above an oven range, freeing up counter space in your kitchen. Some of these Spacemaker models are connected to an outside venting system to carry kitchen vapor and odors outside. Other Spacemaker models utilize a ductless system to do this. Removing a GE Spacemaker microwave oven isn't a difficult task, but, because of the size of some of the oven models, it is a two-man operation. Have a question?

Things You'll Need

  • Assistant
  • Sharp knife
  • Phillips screwdriver
    • 1 Open the cabinet above where the Spacemaker microwave oven is installed. If you see a vent in the cabinet leading to the Spacemaker oven below, your Spacemaker is vented. This vent needs to be disconnected before continuing with removal. Disconnect the vent either by loosening the duct clamps or by cutting the duct tape away with a sharp knife. Pull the vent out of the top of the oven.
    • 2 Have an assistant support the oven from below. Loosen the mounting screws connected to the Spacemaker through the cabinet bottom. Loosen the screws by turning counterclockwise with the Phillips screwdriver.
    • 3 Unplug the Spacemaker from the socket in the cabinet.
    • 4 Continue loosening the screws while your assistant holds the oven in place. Once the screws are removed, have your assistant slowly lower the Spacemaker down by lowering the front face at a 45-degree angle.
    • 5 Feed the power cable for the Spacemaker through the hole in the bottom in the supporting cabinet.
    • 6 Help your assistant slowly pull the Spacemaker forward and out of the mounting brackets on the rear wall. Once the Spacemaker is cleared of the mounting cabinet and rear wall, set it down.
    • 7 Remove the mounting bracket from the rear wall by loosening the screws.

after several reviews of this microwave i have found that most people are not satisfied with the model or the company. And that it seems that your problem may consist with the magnetron not being installed correctly sometimes this happens at the factory but can only be replaced by a technician. they are supposed to carry them on their truck at all times. Youll have to call GE and schedule an appt with a tech. and from other testimonies that can prove to be difficult. sorry i couldnt have been of more help and good luck

Hello my ge JVM1630WH003 oven make a lound huming sound. It will not heat food or water up . The oven 6 years old. Thank You Kurt

That loud humming is a typical sign of a bad magnetron tube, the microwave source. Six years isn't an unreasonable lifespan for one, so the failure isn't unusual. The tube can be replaced, but it's the most expensive part in the oven, and you should let a professional do the repair. Microwave ovens are dangerous to work on, and there's a chance of microwave leakage if the repair isn't done correctly.

Between the cost of the part and labor, it may be more economical to replace the oven. Check the cost of a new one, then see what a service shop in your area would charge to fix yours. You might find only a small difference in cost, and the new oven would have a warranty.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

GE JVM1640 won't heat

These microwave ovens have a series of door switches. One of yours has gone bad or a plastic finger on your door mechanism that pushes the switches is worn or broken off. They are commonly called NC or NO swithes some ovens have up to 6 of these working together.If you have no expertise in this field consult a repair shop. Please rate me

Slow turn, hot food

underneath the deck is a geared motor that turns the platter. check for non lubricated bearings or slipping gears.
