      A Awaited Low Profile Microwave For Small Kitchen

      Posted
      DPFAST

      I've been waiting for this low profile Over the range microwave for a few years already. They used to make these more often but then every company went the bigger is better way and I was stock with an Whirlpool unit that hung only 15 inches above the stove. Not a good thing if you wanna keep your microwave free from grease and have proper venting while cooking. This 7011 unit is great, low profile that now sits whole 20 inches above the stove. Planty room to pull in the cooking steams and remain clean from oil and grease. The install was a little tricky for me as the cabinet mounting holes required a minimum 12 inches distance away from the back wall but my old cabinets are only 12 inches away so the drilled holes ended up being right next to the end rim of the cabinet and prevented me from easily using the provided washers. I ended up cutting into the cabinet rim to be able to slide the washer into it and aligning the whole with the mounting bolt. In the end its a very strong hold. Another problem with the install was that the none of the wall mounting holes aligned with the studs in the wall and I didnt wanna use the ankers if I didn't have to so I decided not to use any of the pre-drilled mounting holes and drilled 4 holes through the metal mounting bracket directly into the studs, two at the top of the bracket and two at the bottom. In the end much stronger install then using the wall ankers in my opinion. I love this microwave. It looks great giving an updated look to an outdated kitchen, lol, and prevented me from cutting down the cabinets to be able to fit regular size microwave. p.s. Just be ready to do something with the extra space on the back wall that is left under the microwave . Mine left a bare wall so before installing the new unit I had to place some stone tiles where the regular tiles were missing, just an extra time spent but make sure to plan for that when replacing a larger unit with this one. Good luck

      Overall I like it

      Like most, i needed a low profile MW for the same reasons. Installation is a bit tricky, so i agree with the others pointing this out. I have installed several such over the range MW’s and this one was confusing, mostly due to poorly written instructions. They refer to the “template”, but none was included. It turns out the bracket serves as the template. They never mentioned it. I made one out of the cardboard box it came in. A few things a bit unusual about this microwave. 1) It extends out from the wall a few inches more than a traditional microwave. I guess they needed the space to pack in all the things thst go in the additional volume of a traditional microwave. Its not a problem but takes some getting use to, seeing it protude from the front of the cabinets. Second, they need to move the mounting screw holes on the top, which draw the MW up to the bottom of the cabinet. They are so far out from the back of the wall, they are practically outside of the cabinet. I hsd difficulty drilling the holes they were SO CLOSE to the front frame of the cabinet. 3). Most MW functions are “programmed”. And it works well, but until reading these reviews and visiting the Whirlpool website, i did not think you could just set a manual entry cook time and power level. I am glad you can. I thought it was an all programmed MW. FROM THAT PERSPECTIVE, its well thought out, especially now that i know i can also manually set a time and non100% power level. Its pretty cool looking, but takes time to remember you have to set all your cook instructions before closing the door. Some mentioned you can only open the door by pushing a button, which is true, and i like. But there is a notch underneath, so you can manually grab. and open the door as well. Just feel around for it and you will find it.

      Awesome LOW PROFILE Microwave!

      Very unique product, as far as I know Whirlpool is the only manufacturer making the Low Profile over the range Microwaves. So much better having that distance between the stove top and the microwave! Better exhaust and easier to see what you are cooking. The old low hanging unit was covered in grease! I vented the unit directly out the back to the outside and the air flow is unbelievable! Very good removal of fumes and smoke from cooking! Very impressive looking unit too! The metal mounting bracket doubles as a template for all the holes making installation a breeze. Simply hold the bracket up against the bottom of the upper cabinet and mark the three holes for the two bolts and cord. Had the wife help me to hold it while getting the bolts started. Only confusing thing was finding the start button. It is labeled with an arrow and +30 seconds. Surprising all the manufacturers are not making these low profile units. This is a bit pricey but worth every penny, get it on sale as it goes often. Two LED lights (one inside and one lights your stove top) are bright, use very little power and should last forever. Great product!

      Pretty but not perfect

      Nashvillian

      Obviously the main reason anyone would purchase this microwave is because it is low profile. It does have some issues which I will discuss. First and foremost the touch buttons are very unresponsive and must be touched with the exact right pressure and in the exact right spot for them to even acknowledge that they were touched. Next the fact that it is so sleek in design and hides the buttons is somewhat inconvenient and means that you have to open the door to type in time. This will undoubtedly take you a long time to get used to considering most people have never owned a microwave that you have to type the time in before you shut the door. Other than that the microwave works great as it should for one of this price. Whirlpool, if you’re listening and reading these reviews make better buttons and stop hiding them with the door and you have a winner.

      Great over-the-range fan replacement

      I was trying to find a sleek and modern range fan, but was about to give up when I saw this. I didn't even know they made these, and I am so glad I got one. Everyone that sees my kitchen is amazed by the look of the low profile microwave. It does stick out slightly more than a regular microwave, but it is unobtrusive. My favorite feature is the "touch to open" button. You just lightly tap the button and the door pops open, it's a really nice feature. The fan feature works well and have had no issues with overheating or anything of the sort. Installation was very easy.

      Solidly designed, outstanding performance and it looks great above our cooktop. This microwave exceeds ALL of our expectations. It's modern in terms of features, installed with ease, is super quiet and has all the functions we require. Kudos to the Whirlpool engineers for executing such a phenomenal product. The black stainless is a very close match to our GE dishwasher and built-in oven and our Samsung refrigerator. This is a excellent product. Highly recommended if you need a hood/microwave combination that is quality throughout and available at a good price. Don't let the compact size fool you.

      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.

      Had been using LG microwaves for quite a few years. Renovated a tiny house and needed a slim low profile microwave that was very intuitive and easy to use. This unit fits the bill! The touch sensors are very accurate, the sounds of the unit when it notifies you, are very pleasing to the ear. But most importantly, the unit functions beautifully, and seems to heat the perfect cup of coffee in less time than my other microwave. I love the automatic door open feature, which helps when you’re preparing things and may not have a free hand. Highly recommend it.
