Over-the-Range Microwave - Upfront Filter with Filter Reset Indicator Light

The Upfront Charcoal Filter design found on select GE Series and Profile Series over-the-range microwaves allows for easy access to the charcoal filter and requires no tools to change the filter. Open the microwave door and press the access panel above the microwave oven cavity where it says "PUSH" to lower the panel door.


Models with an Upfront Charcoal Filter feature have a Reset Filter notification light on the control panel to indicate when it is time to change the filter. The charcoal filter should typically be changed every 6 to 12 months, when it is noticeably dirty or discolored or when the Reset Filter indicator light comes on. When the Reset Filter light is on, replace the charcoal filter, then place your finger over the words Reset Filter and press down for 3 seconds. The Reset Filter indicator light will reset and go off.


The Reset Filter indicator does not detect when the charcoal filter is dirty. This is simply a timed function to remind you to change the filter. The Reset Filter reminder will light up every 6 months.
