This is Michelle with GE and I am happy to answer your question.
This microwave model JES1656SRSS has the following dimensions:
Overall Depth: 17-11/16"
Overall Height: 12-13/16"
Overall Width: 21-3/4"
Please note that as with all GE countertop microwaves, including this model, it is recommended that an air clearance of about 3" should be left on both sides of the microwave, 3" at the top, and 1" in the rear. This allows a good circulation for the intake and discharge air vents.
This new model JES1656SRSS is not the same size as your current model JES831. This new model is larger in depth, height, and width and therefore, will not fit in the same cabinet opening.
You may want to consider the GE model number JES0738DPWW which is smaller than the JES831. Here are the dimensions:
Overall Depth: 13-1/2"
Overall Height: 10-7/8"
Overall Width: 18-1/4"
Thank you for your interest in our GE microwaves. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
