Answer: 
Hi Bernard, yes, you can on most models. The instructions shipped with the oven will guide you on setting up the oven fan for the correct orientation. If you don't have venting inplace, that may be a little tricky as you will need to install the proper venting etc. and cut a hole in your roof for the venting.
I would suggest consulting a local contractor to get a better idea of the installation

I would suggest consulting a local contractor to get a better idea of the installation requirements, especially if you are not a Do-It-Yourself type of person.
I hope this helps and write me back if you want. Take care and good luck.

Answer: 
Model # JNM3161RFSS is a recirculating vent style which is what I bought. If you want to vent the microwave outside, you need a Model # JVM3160RFSS which is essentially the same except for the venting. The recirculating model has an extra air filter that the direct vent does not.

Hello John, the wall mounting bracket comes attached to the back of the oven. You will need to remove it, and attach the bracket to the wall.

The installation instructions says that you can only install under cabinets with a maximum depth of 12-3/4 inches. My cabinets are 13".

The installation instructions says that you can only install under cabinets with a maximum depth of 12-3/4 inches. My cabinets are 13". Is this 1/4 inch really going to make a difference? What would be the issue if I installed under a 13" cabinet? The dimensions of this unit are exactly the same as my current GE Spacemaker.

Answer: 
It shouldn't since the unit sticks out about 3 inches from side of my 12" deep cabinet. You still will have enough clearance for the vents on top of the unit near the door frame. Just make sure you have enough clearance under cabinet and your stove. I wound up with about 19 inches which is very manageable.

Hello,
Thank you for your question on the GE Over the Range Microwave Model # JNM3161RFSS.
The minimum cabinet depth is 12" and the maximum cabinet depth is 13".
If the cabinet is deeper than 13" the vent will not operate properly.
Please see the installation instructions for the complete details and specifications

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 236 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good! Just had this installed by Home Depot to replace a 5yr old GE that died. This model is the non-vented version of one that got a "Best Buy" rating on CR. We didn't want the sensors and other gadgets so this model fills the bill. We like the surface lighting better than our previous unit. The control panel is dark and harder to read. We think that GE should offer a 10yr magnetron warranty like other manufacturers as a $59 Walmart microwave has the same 1 yr warranty. We bought the 5yr Home Depot extended warranty just in case. January 18, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Less than a year old and not functioning. GE has terrible customer service. We purchased this in January 2015. The turntable stopped working in the spring or summer, we didn't get around to calling GE for service. In July, it completely stopped working - no power. I have had 4 service calls with GE (and still counting!), including visits that were really just the tech trying to figure out what parts to order. The turntable is still not working. Instead of replacing a microwave that cost less than $300, I was told that I need 4 service calls (ordering parts don't count) for individual issues before they will replace it. That is an absurd business model. The customer service reps on the service line are unhelpful. We will never buy a GE appliance again. September 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A quiet running micro !!! This in my 2nd GE Micro. (I damaged 1st one, after 6 years, not GE's fault). I like this micro, similar to old one, but not as loud when running. The light on stove is nice & bright. I love the timer choice. ( the buttons are a little harder to push, but might be because I have RA in hands.) August 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this microwave It is large and knows all kinds of food, is perfect above the stove and extractor plus is fat, has light and very easy to handle. I'm in love with this microwave. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good solid microwave that is worth the money Good solid microwave. This is the second GE microwave that I have owned and they are very solid working machine. I would consider getting another of these units. July 28, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great features. Nice microwave. Easy to figure out the features. Great price. July 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect! I made some kitchen upgrades and added this GE over the range microwave. It has all the features I need and is in the stylish stainless steel finish to match my other GE appliances. This microwave is quiet, easy to use and looks great! The total installation time was about an hour without any problems. I'm very happy with this product! I sure beats my 20 year old GE countertop model! March 26, 2015
