Thank you for your interest in the beautiful GE Spacemaker 1.7 cu. ft. Over the Range Microwave in Stainless Steel Model # JVM1740SPS. Yes, this model would make a great replacement.
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.
