Hello,

Thank you for considering the GE Spacemaker Over-the-Range microwave model # JVM1740SPSS.

Yes, this model would make a great replacement. Over the years, the cosmetics have changed and many new feature/options are available.

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.

Model JVM1420BB - Overall Height 16-15/32
Model JVM1740SP - Overall Height 16.5

The front of the microwave is curved, but the back at the wall is a straight line. There should not be any problem unless you have a back spalsh of tile that may need to be considered.

None of the installation kits are totally interchangeable. You must 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.

I hope this helps!

Hi,
Where can I find a list of microwaves that I can use to easily replace this unit? I want a nice Microwave but don't want to hassle with a lot of different setups. This Model has 2 fan intakes on the bottom and an exhaust on the top to the outside. There is a grille on the front top of the oven which also looks like an exhaust.
Thank You!

I replaced an existing microwave of the same make/model and used the previously installed plug-in box. If you have a junction box, I see no reason why you can't hardwire the microwave by cutting off the plug and wiring it directly to the connection box terminals. I would used a certified electrician if you go that route.

Hello Ken,

Thank you for your question on the GE microwave.

During cooking, some moisture accumulation inside the door of a microwave oven is considered normal. If moisture is noticed between the glass, allow microwave door to stand open for approximately 15 minutes & moisture should dissipate.

After this time, if moisture has not evaporated, please rest assured it presents no operational or safety problems and the moisture is considered an annoyance, only from a "cosmetics" standpoint.

Yes, the door can be disassembled and cleaned by a qualified service technician. Any repair to a microwave door will require service. Federal law requires any adjustment or repair of a microwave door be followed up by a leak test to make sure of proper fit, operation, etc.

Please see the link below for scheduling serivce.
