There should be Two very large screws that secure it from the top. These will be in the cabinets above the micowave.
Be very carefull when removing these, the unit will be heavy.

I hope this helps.

Measurements to replace R 1460 over the range microwave


Almost all over the range micros are 30 inches wide. They did make a few 36 inch models but most are 30. Top to bottom back measurement can be between 16 to 18 inches. Most makes are similar in size. Back wall mounting plate will have to be exchanged since each company has a slightly different design but the wall plate comes with the new unit along with mounting hardware.

Hi,
On this model, item #1 is the only part you will need to invert. Lift out and rotate to allow venting to be possible to the wall. In other words, the open part needs to face the back of the microwave. Also if you removed the blower, you will need to re-install it back and correctly. You could have venting issues if not back in the proper location.

My Micro vents into the kitchen instead of venting up the exhaust vent. What could be wrong


Hi,

The fans on an over the stove microwave can be rotated up to 180 degrees depending on how the installer intends to vent the hood. Your fan is pointed forward and venting into the kitchen through a charcoal filter. If you want to vent through the ducting and out of the kitchen, you'll have to drop the microwave down off of the mounting bracket and rotate the fans in the back, pointing the dicsharge upward for a vertical vent, or 180 degrees, if it discharges out the back (wall vent). In both cases, an adapter is necessary, and can be obtained at any hardware store.
Best regards, --W/D--

Need assistance installing a JVM1660BB range microwave oven. How do I attach the sleave to the duct to the microwave, while mounting the Microwave on the wall. Thanks for the specs on the microwave oven....


From page 14 of the installation instructions online here:

"Extend the house duct down to connect to
the exhaust adaptor.

"Seal exhaust duct joints using duct tape."

The interior light on my microwave convection oven doesn't light.


If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

On an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. 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.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Sounds easy...but


Installing one of these between two cabinets and supported by the one above it is a pain ..but even worse if you don't have the installation directions. If you are relatively handy and have some carpenntry experience, I'll walk you thru the way I install them. First off, I assume you are installing this above a stove and betwwen two wall cabinets.. You need to do a little preparation work first. locate the wall mount bracket and you should have a packet of hardware ( primarily two long screws that will be used to support the front of the micro from the cabinet above) If you have all this.. you'll need to determine if you are going to vent the micro back into the room or plan to vent it outside. The simplest is to vent it back into the rook thru a charcoal filter but if you are going tovent it outside, you have two choices.. one is to vent it up thru the cabinet and outside via ductwork that you buy..if the microwave oven is being attached to an outside wall then it is easiest to vent it straight out the back ( i say this because you have to orient the blower in teh configuration that you are planning to use) Let's assume you will be venting this back into the room ( that's the easiest ) and move on.. The wall mount bracket supports the back bottom of the microwave oven when you secure it and the two long screws will be used to bring the front of the micro up against the bottom of the cabinet above it... I normally locate the wall studs and then buy and fit a 1/2 inch piece of plywood onto the wall where the micro will be mounted. The microwave will project out 1/2 inch further as a result of this plywood panel but.. you can use lots of drwall screws to the secure the plywood to the wall studs and then you can mount the wall bracket onto this plywood without having to worry about where the studs are and if it will support the microwaves weight. Mount the bracket onto this plywood piece. I will use drwall screws and add flat washers to them to provide additional support. Once that bracket is installed, you will need to figure out how you are going to provide power to the microwave. If you are replacing an existing oven then you will probably have a power fees inside the cabinet =situated above the microwave oven. If not, then you will need to provide a power feed for this. In the old days, most of these appliances were hard wired into junction boxes but nowadays, most appliances are treated as removable and all you will need is an outlet box in the cabinet above. I suggest you bore a hole large enough for the power cord plug to fit thru the bottom of the cabinet so that you can plug it in. The next part is the hardest to accomplish.. If you look at the top of the microwave oven, you should see two holes near thhe front and on top. Those two holes have floating captive nuts inside them that the long screws ( included in your hardware kit) will be used to snug the front of the micro up against the bottom of the cabinet above it.. The trick is to measure from the back wall out to where these holes need to be drilled in the cabinet above so that they line up. You can drill bigger holes than you need and use oversize washers if necessary. If this sounds complicated ..it IS.. i have put many of these in and unless you are actually doing one, youhave no idea how involved this can be.. even worse with ducting to the outside.... I hope this gives you some tricks on how to install.. And um.. if you do get this all together, you will need some help actually putting it in place.. You'll need to catch the back of the microwave onto the tabs of the wall bracket and then feed the wire thru the cabinet while you lift the entire thing up to start the screws from the cabinet down onto the top of the microwave. I'm a big guy and have done these myself but it is not easy.. Hope this helps you.. Lastly, here is a link to the GE website where you can download the user manual and search their FAQ for install details ( in retrospect, I just should have given you that info).. http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/
Hope this helps you...

Pin hole in back wall from metal carousel hitting wall while oven on


You can buy stainless steel tape from many hardware stores, just make sure that you put the tape on the outside (be very careful when opening the oven up). Put enough layers on to match the thickness of the metal originally - unfortunately the tape tends not to stay on for that long, so is potentially a dangerous option the best thing to do would be take it to a microwave repair shop - they will have metal sheet available of the appropriate type and should be able to patch it for you - if you get really lucky they might have the same model that has an undamaged chassis but destroyed electrical workings - is worth a try. Good luck Hope this helps - please post again if you need more info :)
