This Over-The-Range Microwave Charcoal Filter traps grease from the exhaust air of your oven to prevent it from entering the blower and vent, potentially causing build-up and damage. If your current filter is no longer functioning properly, replacing this accessory may alleviate these issues. This accessory can be used across several brands; check to see if your model number is compatible. Installing this accessory will require basic hand tools, some disassembly of the microwave and novice repair experience. You must unplug the microwave or shut off the house circuit breaker for the appliance before installing this part. Recommended Item: The Heavy Duty Degreaser Spray (item 31552A) cuts through grease, oil and burned-on spills that may clog your microwave’s filter.
