I am replacing my 2004 GE Profile microwave model JVM2070SH001

I am replacing my 2004 GE Profile microwave model JVM2070SH001 with a 2015 GE model JNM7196SF1SS and found that the back exhaust vent on the new model is located more than 1.5 inches higher than the old model. Changing the old vent on the wall looks like a huge pain in the...Should I just seal the vent and use the recirculating option?

We have an Amana bottom freezer refrigerator that is emitting an odor. We pulled it out, cleaned behind it, and removed the back panels. There was evidence that mice had been present, but we could find nothing now. We vacuumed out the area and blew air through with a hair dryer. No help. We emptied both the refrigerator and freezer, placed wadded up paper and charcoal briquets inside, and left it unplugged for about 36 hours. I washed out the entire inside with a little bleach added. This morning we plugged it back in and the odor came back. We could smell it in the air coming from the fan in the back. What do we do now?

My Bosch range hood has stopped drawing up cooking grease.

My Bosch range hood has stopped drawing up cooking grease. It IS sucking up air, I floated a piece of paper towel, and it got pulled up, but the bottom of the hood was dripping with grease from the 3 tablespoons of olive oil I fried with last night. It appears that grease is swirling under all my pot lights as well....but I think that's just me seeing it in the air directly under the lights. I recently cleaned the filter with dish soap and water-- could I have impaired its ability to draw up the grease?

My 4-year old Samsung microwave has just quit working. The

My 4-year old Samsung microwave has just quit working. The letters SE appear in thedisplay window. Can you tell me what that means? Also, in reading my manual, it talksabout a charcoal filter needing replacing every 6 months to a year. I didn't realize it had one of those and have never changed it. Could that possible be the trouble?
