Whirlpool 1.1 Cu. Ft. Low Profile Over-the-Range Microwave Hood Combination
I love this microwave, I needed one that was not as tall Due to the shorter space over my stove (house built in the 80's) this gives me so much room to cook than the standard size microvaves, and it is so quite when it is heating up my food. the exhaust fan is a little noisey but it does what it is supposed to do!! I will be purchasing one for my sone for Christmas for his home.
The low profile of this microwave gave us so much more cook space. (See photo, you can see how low the old microwave was because we need to paint the wall there.) We have not run into the issue some reviewers mentioned with the turntable not staying on but did notice the model in store didn’t sit flat. Overall, I’d say it’s worth the price and has been a game changer for us in our kitchen.
I really like this low profile microwave. Be aware that if you are replacing a regular size over-the-stove, you will have to cover holes because the low profile is a lot higher up the wall. Also, it sticks out a little further than the other one. I love it though and I have much more room over my stove. One thing I am concerned about is that the door opens with a button, no handle. Hopefully that will last for the life of the microwave.
I would recommend this to a friend

Very Nice microwave
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
Very happy with it. Has a subtle "ding" when it's done. Love the 3 fan speeds and 2 light settings. My only complaint is that you have to open it to use the timer. Sometimes I just want to time things outside the microwave. And I wish it were more flush with the cupboards. It actually sticks out a few inches. We were more worried about meeting the 18" safety height requirement above the stove when we were measuring.
I mounted this over the range and it works for me, but that arrangement probably wouldn't work for a short person. My biggest complaint is that the glass plate and the plastic ring that it sits on do not stay in place very well. Overall, I'm really happy with it and love having my counterspace back since this is mounted over the range.
My microwave stopped working on Thanksgiving Day. Saw this at Lowes they said they had 1 so I went to pick it up they didn’t have any and would not order one at customer service. Ordered at Best Buy picked up in a couple of days. Love this microwave!!
Bought a house with a partial kitchen remodel started. Designed for a cooktop/hood combo, changed to a range. Standard microwave was too big. This worked out quite well. Tall enough for a microwave lid on a flat plate.
A:AnswerUser: Dontbuythis is full of misinformation! The unit can vent into the room (recirculating); the intake is through 2 charcoal/grease filters on the bottom & it vents out on top right behind the door. It can also be setup to vent horizontally through the wall or vertically through the roof. It comes out of the box setup for recirculation. The instructions DO NOT make this clear! If you simply want to vent into the room, don’t touch a thing!
Also, dontbuythis keeps insisting the bulb is not replaceable, or that it will be $150 to have a new board put in. This is ridiculous! The halogen bulb is easily replaceable in both the over (one screw) and underneath (4 screws) and they are readily available online and in some stores.
A:AnswerI also noticed that the answer to a question posted here about how to cancel or stop a function was answered by the Whirlpool team as “press the cancel/stop button,” There is no such button on this unit. You have to press the X button on the outside. (Which is also labeled as the lock button!!!!!!)
A:AnswerPlus 30 seconds is the start button.
Plus 30 seconds starts the mucrowave. If you have entered a duration or time to cook, it does not add the 30 seconds. If you have not entered a time to cook.. it starts and cooks for 30 seconds.
