Many people who have over the range microwaves don’t clean or replace the filters as often as they should. In this video we will show you how to clean your unit’s grease filters and replace the charcoal filter. The grease filters are located on the bottom of your microwave these generally will pop out without any tools. These filters are greasy to the touch when they are dirty. To clean them use a grease fighting soap and warm water be sure to avoid products with ammonia you will know when the filters are cleaned by their look and feel when they are dry. Replace them under the unit most manufacturers recommend cleaning these once a month. The charcoal filter is located behind the vent near the top of the unit. There will be two or three screws on top of the microwave that keep the vent in place. Remove these and you will then be able to pop off the vent.
