Questions & Answers


does it require a 15 amp line or a 20 amp line?

Asked by cesare May 4, 2021

Hello, Thanks so much for reaching out. This is a great question! Since this microwave only uses 14 amps, a 15 or 20 amp line will work just fine. Hope this helps! Mike@GEA

What does PF mean on the display panel

Asked by Vicki April 27, 2021

Hey there, We're glad you reached out. We can understand your concern and will be happy to help! It is possible to see this display upon initial installation or after power was restored due to a power failure. This display can be cancelled and normal operation resumed by touching the CLEAR pad. The clock can be reset on models so equipped. Sometimes shutting off the circuit breaker that the microwave oven is connected to for 30 seconds will clear the fault, error or function code; however, there are some cases when further service may be required. We hope this helps. Stay safe! Mike@GEA

I am trying to replace my GE Spacemaker Microwave Oven. Model # JVM1650WH05 Externally Vented ...

Asked by Michele April 20, 2021

Hey there, we appreciate your loyalty and we're happy to help. 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 30" over-the-range models will work as a replacement for an existing 30" over-the-range model. With that being said we believe this microwave, model JVM3162RJSS, would make a great replacement. We're wishing you the best! - Guy@GEA

Top left door click when opening the door.

Asked by cilla March 31, 2021

This could be a few things. It’s possible the door hinge might have developed a crack and is causing the noise, also it could be the door switch which is there as a safety mechanism so the microwave shuts off when door opens. I would continue to monitor and if noise gets louder, or if microwave doesn’t shut off when door opens, I would call the GE help center, especially if it’s still under warranty.

How do we get our stove working?

Asked by Sonny March 22, 2021

Hello there, thanks for reaching out. The product page you're asking on is for a microwave so without knowing the model number to your stove or the issue, we're unable to help. If this is the case, we recommend reaching out to us on social media so that a member from our team can assist you. However, if you mean to put "stove lights", you should be able to turn the surface light on by pressing the Surface Light button on your microwave. We're wishing you the best! - Guy@GEA

What are the amp requirements? Thank you.

Asked by Lauri March 18, 2021

Asked by Ducky March 17, 2021

Hello. If I order this product with the stove range, do the delivery team install the microwave a...

Asked by DelinaMr March 5, 2021

If you ordered it from H.D. probably not, if they do install you’ll be paying for it, over the stove microwave’s have three different ways to exhaust, 1 - in the back, 2 - through the top, 3 - or recirculate through the front, which means taking the motor and fan unit out to turn it depending on how you your space is set up, confusing YES, a professional in appliances should be the one you hire, otherwise it could shorten the life of the unit, I know this because it happened to me, so my advice is simple hire a professional to install an over the stove microwave,

How can I turn off “replace filter” light

Hi Trish! Thanks for your question. Can you please reach out to us at our contact page with the model number of your microwave and a description of the light that's on your unit? We look forward to hearing from you. Emily@GEA

What is the recommended height off the range for a microwave

Asked by Al February 6, 2021

Hello Al, Thank you for reaching out. We're happy to provide some assistance. When installing an over-the-range microwave, it is required that the bottom edge of the cabinet needs to be 30" or more from the cooking surface. There should also be 66" or more from the floor to the top of the microwave oven. You can check the requirements on page 7 of the installation guide. Hope this helps. Keep in touch! Mike@GEA
