I recently replace my microwave (JE2160SF01) with the PEB7266SFSS model. The trim kit that was originally installed was JX2130SH. I used the existing trim kit with no problems except, the original microwave had two holes in the back where as the new one only had one, so I installed the trim kit using three screws instead of four. Aside from that, all the holes/tabs matched up and it took no more than 10 minutes to reinstall the new microwave with the old trim kit.

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in the GE 2.2 cu. ft. Counter top Microwave in Stainless Steel model # PEB7226SFSS.

This microwave requires the Built-In trim kit JX7230SFSS.

None of the installation kits are totally interchangeable. GE recommends to use the new mounting system and hardware that comes with the specific microwave. While the cabinet cut-out opening is the same as the old trim kit, there may be vent duct, cord cut-out location and mounting screw location changes for this model. There is no way to know until the box is opened and the template is viewed.

Hello Ravi - this is Nancy at GE and I am happy to help you.

You will need to use the new trim kit that is approved for use with the PEB7226SFSS. The trim kits have changed over the years and are not interchangeable.

Yes, the trim kit is a match for that microwave. I have the same of both. The fit and finish is good just don't get the trim screws too tight as will will pull in the plastic base causing the stainless cladding to distort.

Hello Patricia,
This is Joyce from GE. I will be happy to help. All GE, Hotpoint, and Monogram microwaves and Advantium ovens are hinged on the left side. This means the door will open at the right and swing to the left. Most models have a 100 degree door swing.

Note:
Microwave doors are not reversible.

Some built-in microwaves and Advantium ovens are hinged at the bottom like a wall oven, so the door opens at the top and comes downward.

Thanks so much for your question. Have a good day!

This microwave model PEB7226SFSS requires the trim kit JX2127SF (27") or the JX2130SF (30"). GE does not recommend using a trim kit designed for a different model, including the microwave model JE2160.

Hi. I read the previous Q&A about trim kits but I don't see the JX7230SFSS trim kit available online. The only one that comes up in the search results on your site when I search for this model number is the trim kit "JX2030SMSS". Is that the same one or an update? I want to make sure that if I purchase that one that it will work with this microwave (PEB7226SFSS). Thank you.

Hello Nick,
This is Joyce from GE. I will be happy to help. The JE2160SF01 should have been installed with a trim kit that required the following cutout dimensions: 16-3/4" +/- 1/16" H x 25-1/2" +/- 1/8" W. A great replacement microwave would be the PEB7226SFSS. You would have to use the new trim kit with the microwave; as they have changed over the years and are not interchangeable.

Thanks so much for checking with us. Have a good day!

The assembled width and depth will fit into my existing cabinet opening; but, the case depth measurements will not, specifically the depth. Do I need the "case" or can I just install the microwave itself and then the optional trim kit?

Hello,

This is Michelle with GE and I am happy to help.

The correct overall dimensions of this microwave (including the case) are:

Height: 14"
Width: 24-1/8"
Depth: 19-3/4"

A built-in trim kit (JX7230SFSS for a 30" finished width or JX7227SFSS for a 27" finished width) is required in order to install this countertop microwave into a built-in cabinet opening. The cutout dimensions for this cabinet opening must be:

Height: 16-3/4" (+/- 1/8")
Width: 25-1/2" (+/- 1/8")
Depth: 19-1/2" min. with receptacle outside cabinet or 22" min. with receptacle inside cabinet.

We will notify Home Depot of the correction needed on their website.

Thank you for checking
