A:AnswerThere is a known issue with this model number jvm3160..... microwave blowing door switches and tripping the breaker when door is open and/or closed. the microwave door was manufactured incorrectly which according to the manufacture causes this issue to occur. According to the manufacture, the repair is to replace the entire door assembly, the door switches, and the switch holder. The repair cost more than buying a new microwave. And we have seen it on microwaves from three years old and newer some being one and a half years old. We have tried just replacing the door switches, didn’t work. We have tried replacing the door switches and the switch holder, didn’t work. Best bet is just to buy a new microwave and we advise buying a five year extended warranty with it. Keep in mind that about 8 to 9 years ago or so GE appliance division was bought out by HAIER appliances. All appliances, especially microwaves, even the more expensive ones, are all made with cheaper parts nowadays. So getting five years of usage out of any appliance is considered normal. I would advise to get a 5 year extended warranty with any appliances you by now. so at least your appliance will be covered for five years. Stay far away from Samsung and LG appliances. You will thank me later.
A:AnswerHello Inquirer - this is Nancy at GE Appliances and we are happy to help you. This microwave is ready to be installed as exhausting outside through the top of the unit. However, you can change the venting to be internally vented or recirculating. Instructions for changing the venting can be found in the Owner's Manual. We hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!
A:AnswerNick, I just bought model JVM6175SKSS to replace my old GE (that was at least 10 years old)
and it was a breeze to install with the same bracket and hole location for the plug.
All the settings pretty much the same too. Recommend
A:AnswerHi Rob- All 30" over-the-range microwaves are approximately the same width, and are designed to fit into a 30" wide cabinet opening. Each microwave comes with the mounting hardware (mounting bracket, screws, exhaust adapter), top and rear templates, and installation instructions. 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. We suggest models GE® 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave Oven JVM6172SKSS and GE® 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Sensor Microwave Oven
JVM6175SKSS. Sensor cooking controls sense the humidity (steam) from foods cooking and automatically adjusts time and power for best cooking results. We certainly appreciate your loyalty! SUE@GEA
