    Q:how do you change filter in microwave
    by|Sep 25, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi - Thank you for reaching out to us. If you have installed your over-the-range microwave to be vented internally using the charcoal filter, you will need to replace that filter over time. We offer directions for changing the filter on page 21 of the owner's manual -- https://images.thdstatic.com/catalog/pdfImages/c5/c5369a19-47c1-411d-bb23-4dde727e74fd.pdf -- If your over-the-range microwave is vented to the outside, you don't have a charcoal filter. You only need to remove and clean your grease filters periodically based on your usage. We hope this is helpful. Kind regards - Vikki@GEAppliances

        Only issue. Door handle. Feels like cheap plastic and won’t stand the test of time. All other features are working very well.
