Q:Will the venting down toward the stove top affect the flame of a gas range.

Q:Does this replace the JVM6175RF1SS?
by|May 14, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  All 30" Over-the-Range Microwaves are approximately the same width and are designed to fit into a 30" wide cabinet opening. Therefore, any of our current 30" Over-the-Range microwave models will work as a replacement for an existing 30" Over-the-Range microwave model. When replacing an Over-the-Range microwave, the mounting bracket included with the new microwave should be used since the mounting bracket is specific to each model. The new screws, bolts and exhaust adapter should also be used.

        poor Q/C to be broken out of the box. zero troubleshooting from GE
        Bad out of the box. Doesnt heat at all plate doesnt spin even when turned on. Called GE they wanted to send somebody out for service. When its not 24 hours old it isnt going tk get worked on. GE doesnt offer tech support and troubleshooting. They wanted me to call Home Depot to see what they could do. When a conpamy makes so much that they would rather send somebody out then have tech support they are making too much money. Our time is valuable as well as for fingerprint resistant? Proof is in the pictures
        Response from GE AnswersMay 15, 2024
        We understand the disappointment and frustration caused by your new microwave oven not functioning properly. For help with this situation, please review the support articles on the GE Appliances website titled: "Microwave - Runs But Does Not Heat Solution" and "Microwave Turntable Does Not Turn". If the issue persists, we recommend scheduling a service appointment for one of our qualified technicians to assess your unit. You can schedule an appointment by calling us at: 1-800-432-2737.

          GE Micro - Bright light on the front.
          Pretty and new. Normally, I get a used one. The controls are similar to our previous one. The mounting bracket was different. I stayed with GE so we wouldn't have to cut new holes or change the bracket but we figured it out. This one is louder than the old GE model. I wish the light near the vent would have been LED.

              Details missing
              I just finished installing this microwave and have a few issues. 1. Nowhere in the installation guide does it mention a clearance distance for the door to open fully. After installing I realized I don't have enough clearance for the door to open fully. I was able find a guide online that shows 1/2" is needed. I have a max of 3/8" so my door won't fully open. It's manageable but annoying. 2. I have my fan set to blow out the back, and while I can see that the vent works from the outside, I can feel air blowing back in when the fan is on. Not sure this is avoidable, but it leaves me a little worried about how well the fan will actually clear smoke when i cook on my stove. Time will tell. Other than that the microwave looks nice and I'm hopeful it will work well
              Response from GE_AppliancesMay 14, 2024
              We appreciate your feedback regarding your new GE Appliances over-the-range microwave. The minimum distance from the door hinge side to the adjacent wall is 1/2", and the cabinet opening/cutout for the microwave should be a minimum of 30" to accommodate space for the door to open. This information is listed in the quick specs, and the upper cabinet template instructions for your microwave. For your convenience, we have provided both links below: https://products-salsify.geappliances.com/image/upload/s--nXjrkCA5--/wbml8fqcrrhkz3wgbxcp.pdf?_ga=2.223175835.1008858966.1715609802-1342374613.1688136512 https://products-salsify.geappliances.com/image/upload/s--AYcEg7Mn--/ab37b4deea60ffdb1d22414a78cb16db8b3e62b0.pdf?_ga=2.126749709.1008858966.1715609802-1342374613.1688136512 If you're concerned about the vent fan operation, you can try the "tissue test" to check for proper draw of the vent.

                  Died in less than two years
                  We’ve had this microwave for almost two years. Yesterday after microwaving soup and closing the door it sounded like it started running again in extra high mode and then it shutoff. I’ve unplugged it and from what I’ve read there is no way to recover from it.
                  Response from GE_AppliancesMay 3, 2024
                  We're sorry to hear that your microwave stopped working. If the microwave shuts down during a cooking cycle and appears to have no power, check the circuit breaker or fuse in your home. For more information, we recommend taking a look at the link below: https://products.geappliances.com/appliance/gea-support-search-content?contentId=18780 We want to ensure you get the assistance you need, and an agent will be reaching out to you by email.
