This is Donna with GE and I am happy to help! Yes, if your current microwave is over 11 yers old, it is certainly more cost effective to replace than repair.
There are many current model microwaves that will fit into a 30" wide installation space. The model numbers will begin with the letters CVM, PVM, PNM, JVM1, JVM2 , or JNM.
None of the installation kits are totally interchangeable. GE recommends to use the new mounting system and hardware that comes with the specific microwave. There are vent duct, cord cut-out location and mounting screw location changes for these models.
Should you have any additional questions, please let us know. We are always happy to help!
