Whirlpool 1.1 Cu. Ft. Low Profile Over-the-Range Microwave Hood Combination
This is perfect for those that have a range hood, but would rather have an over the range microwave. The cabinet above my range was 18” tall which did not allow for an OTR microwave because the bottom would be too close to the cooktop. This OTR microwave was perfect because it’s only 10-1/4” tall. So after the install, I have 19-1/8” to the bottom of the microwave which is plenty of space. The install was easy. The mounting bracket also doubles as a template for the holes that need to be drilled into the cabinet. This is much easier and faster than trying to deal with paper templates that come with other OTR microwaves. The hardest part was adding an outlet for the microwave to plug into.....and that’s not really hard at all! The microwave is very quiet, but yet powerful. The 3 speed fan is also quiet and powerful. There is also an LED light that shines on the cooktop. This microwave is sleek in design, but very roomy on the inside. I can put a 6” tall bowl in it with no trouble. It has a feature that lets one turn off the turntable that will let one put a 13x9 dish in it with ease. I can not speak for it’s longevity as I have only had it for a few days. I am very happy I made this purchase.
My microwave fan went out on my microwave. Instead of repair I opted for new low profile microwave and am very pleased with it. My previous microwave handles got too hot from my gas range gas burners. The extra distance helps my peace of mind. I tiled the space underneath to cover the raw wallboard exposed.
This unit looks great above my Sammy slide-in range. Let me tell you - for a smaller microwave - it is a bit heavier than the old Samsung uwave. You will need help supporting it while the bolts are screwed in from above. Thanks neighbor! Equal wattage as before but maybe not 1000w as before. Needs a little more time to cook some items. Love the 30sec basic time when Start is pushed, for rolls and cups of coffee etc.
Very nice low profile microwave. Easy to mount with template all in one. Seems to warm food fast. The bottom lights could be brighter. Microwave had some dings on the side straight out of the box, but was mostly hidden when installed.
I got to take advantage of President Day sales. Wanted this microwave for quite awhile. Love the black stainless color. The microwave arrived on time and the 2 delivery guy were great! They took it out of the box so I could ensure it was unblemished. My only criticism is that the directions left much to be desired, but I persevered.
A:AnswerI just spoke to a tech about the strong air blowing out the front left vent above the door. He said the fan has to be reversed to vent into the ceiling vent. It comes from the factory with recirculation back into the kitchen. They are coming next week. I will update.
The unit does stick out further than my cabinets as well. Initially I thought it looked a bit odd until everything else was in place. Now, all I get are rave reviews of its appearance in my small compact kitchen. Instead of being an eyesore or looking like the odd man out as far as built-ins and countertop pieces go, it distinguishes itself with a sleek profile a beautiful display and soft lighting. The automatic door open feature with one simple touch, is wonderful. You will not regret this purchase, it’s just different than what we are accustomed to.
A:AnswerUpper vent is roof rent.
Make sure the microwave flap/damper opens up when fan is running. And, if you have a vent system that goes outside, either up or up and then sideways, that the microwave discharges into the
base of the vent. I had to move mine about two invhes toward the front of my cabinet.
A:AnswerHello NANCY, the WML75011HZ is a higher end model, it features a Scrolling Electronic Display Sensor Cooking capability, CleanRelease® Non-Stick Interior, Steam Cooking, Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel, LED Cooktop lighting vs Halogen on the 550 model. These features are in addition to the greater choice in Fan Speed. The other features are the same for the two units like finished sides and 1000 Watt cooking power. Hope this helps!
