SOURCE: Need replacement microwave to fit existing trim kit

Finally built up the courage to call GE Appliance number and weave my way through the phone menu system. Pressed the right menu option (sales) to speak to someone about trim kits. Found out that the trim kit model number is JX1527MWW. Then called back to select a different menu option (other) and learned from someone else that since the trim kit model is more than 1-2 years old, there's a slim-to-none chance any new microwave models will work with it, and even if there was they couldn't easily cross-reference against a model that old to tell me which one (or something to that effect). So I hit a dead end. Only option for me at this point is to buy a new microwave with new trim kit.

(Personal note: I think the trim kit business is a racket, in bed with the microwave manufacturers. Why else would there be no standard dimensions for microwaves by now--like refrigerators have--and why is it a few pieces of sheet metal cost over $150? Pretty convenient that every microwave model needs its own trim kit model!)

SOURCE: I have the same problem

GE Customer Service is here and they should be able to tell you what the "drop-in replacement" is for your model.

Of course, most microwave problems are pretty simple to repair.

If you're interested in our advice there, please reply back with your detailed symptoms.

Otherwise...

SOURCE: whirlpool gold microwave gt4175sps - problem: will

Hi,

It sounds like there may be a diode or relay on the control that has failed. This could cause both symptoms you are explaining here. In either case the control board/keymembrane would need replaced. The cost of these would be about $173.00 for parts. Unfortunatly this repair would most likely cost more than the value of the product. Sorry for the bad news.

SOURCE: What are the dimensions for

30" wide x 16" tall x 14" deep. Tried to find a replacement for mine of that size with no luck. Turned out a $30 capacitor needed replacing ($90) service charge.

I bought a KitchenAid 24" microwave oven and trim kit.to replace an old KitchenAid 24" oven. The old oven set on the built-in shelf with a stainless steel trim panel around the oven to trim the cut-out. ...


As long as there is ventilation at the back and somewhere for the air to come out go ahead and use you imagination to make the trim kit look good to the eye. Making those tough decisions is what installers do.

Microwave GT4175SPS 3 runs but won't heat


Most likely causes are a blown fuse in HV area of microwave or an open thermal protector or thermal fuse.
Less likely causes are failure of various parts in the HV area.

Due to the lethal dangers inherent in microwaves, servicing of these parts is likely best left to a professional. That said, if you are technically versed I can point you in the direction of some good resources for troubleshooting and repair.

Whirlpool gold GT4175SPS-2 inside door paint is flaking and revealing metal. Is it safe to use?


Hi,

Scratches, flaking and bare spots are fairly common, but should be addressed as soon as they arise so the corrosion will not spread and arcing does not occur.

Unplug the power cord first.

Take some mild sanding cloth or scotchbright and clean the bare and rusted areas in the microwave. Use appliance touch up paint to re-coat the surface. You can find the touch up at most anywhere that sells appliances, it comes in a plastic bottle similar in appearance to fingernail polish, yes it does have a brush inside.

Let it dry per the instructions on the bottle or 24 hours if not specified.

Is there a replacement microwave for thermador MBBS that fits MT30S trim kit?


Thermador doesn't make one, but we found the GE JEB1860SM1SS from Home Depot fit perfectly. For only $259. The repair to fix our Thermador was $618. It was only 5 years old. I couldn't believe it already went out. I won't be buying anymore Thermador appliances.
