Whirlpool 1.1 Cu. Ft. Low Profile Over-the-Range Microwave Hood Combination
I bought this as part of our kitchen renovation. I didn’t even know they made low profile microwave ovens, as I had never seen anyone with one in their home. We don’t cook whole meals in ours, so the extra space inside a standard microwave oven just isn’t really needed for us...and probably most people. Keep in mind while the unit is definitely shorter in height than a standard, it is also deeper, so it will protrude our more from your cabinets thanks a standard, especially if you have 12 inch deep wall cabinets like me. It isn’t a problem though and it looks awesome. The fan is also more powerful than the larger units...ironically. It looks and sounds premium.
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.
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.
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

I bought this microwave because the space to my stove wasn't 18 inches which is standard. Now its 20 inches. The only problem I have is the rotating plate keep on getting out of place. But I believe this microwave was too expensive. But hey I needed it
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.
The low profile microwave is being used for a kitchen renovation where the 11 inch height work greats. There is a circuit breaker box above the stove that e did not want to cover so this was a perfect solution. It is also nice to have a fan and a light.
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:AnswerVent on the bottom. Don't worry though, you won't be able to see anything once the light goes out after about 10 months. You won't be able to simply order another bulb because the unit requires that you have a technician come out and install it. This unit is made in China and is not supported in the USA.
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.
