Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
my microwave is recirculating. How do I pull out the vent assembly to clean. It is possible, that it has lot of grease etc. Is pulling down the entire microwave oven easy?

I just went ahead while you were typing your answer and cleaned up all the deposit inside the vent door. Then I turned on the Vent Exhaust and then off. Still the vent door kept opening and closing and making the noise. Ultimately, it stopped when I pressed Vent Exhaust Boost on and then off couple of times. that is extremely annoying. That is what I have been doing for two years now.
Removing the microwave assembly is first very cumbersome and what purpose will it serve? I've already cleaned all the dirt inside the vent door.
Vent door is being used, because it opens up when the micro wave is being used. And it opens even when the vent exhaust is turned on.
I am not clear -- what you mean by "you can remove it."
Looks like you have not understood the question. When I turn on the Vent Fan, it turns on, the vent door opens and recirculation starts. When I turn off the Vent fan, the fan does stop but the vent door keeps opening and closing and making the noise. While we were communicating, I have seen the assembly inside the vent door that keeps clicking and making the noise. It stopped when I turned the Vent Fan boost on and then off couple of times.

I hope you are 100% sure about this diagnosis and this solution. This is too costly a solution. I will rather live this problem and complain to GE.
