    • Best answerHello, Sheryl! We recommend that the top of the over-the-range microwave, or the bottom of your cabinets, be approximately 30" above the surface of your range. Please see the diagram on page 3 of the Installation Instructions below for more specific information. http://bit.ly/PIP2v2 Thank you for your interest in a Whirlpool microwave!

  • Q: is there an over the range microwave with the vent in front vs the top?  (3 Answers)

    • Best answerOlder units used to have the venting visible on the front grill. They changed that so smoke and greasy air wouldn't blow in your face, plus it looks nicer. Most newer units now divert the air flow up past the doors above the unit, if the motor is set for "recirculating" the air from the bottom filters through a charcoal filter. If you need the air flow to escape through the ceiling or the back wall, most motors are very easily turned simply by taking off the vent cover plate, pull the motor out and turn in the direction you need, then replace holding plate and screws. No electrical knowledge needed to do this. Basically all these microwaves have 3 vent directions, backwards, upwards, and forwards. The forward does not need a damper kit or vent pipe. The other two do and you may need an installer to hook it up properly. Hope this info helps. I'm a private kitchen remodeler and hang these units all the time.
