Microwave looks great and works great. Having no problems or issues. Heats food/cooks food as a microwave should. Fingerprint resistance on the stainless steel is not just a selling gimmick it actually works and will continue to work as long you don't apply harsh chemical cleaning compounds to remove the properties of it. Whenever there is something there to clean just use a soft cloth or paper-towel to clean it (preferably the soft cloth). Only thing I regret, is not choosing the product model with sensor cooking, but that's on me. This microwave is an excellent buy for a large size cooker.
Love the fact that the fan turns on when excessive heat is detected. It still startles me for a second. It’s not loud but I’m just not expecting it. Heats quickly. We must have been in the microwave dark ages! What took our old one 35 seconds to heat only takes 25 in the new microwave.
Replaced a GE profile microwave that lasted 15 years. Installed fairly easily, although a bit taller than most other over the range units. Has to trim back our backsplash to get the free space needed. Other than that, no complaints.
A:Answeryes, you just have to flip the fan when you get it to point the fan either out of the back or out of the top, depressing on if you have venting going out a back wall, or up to the roof. otherwise, if you don't flip the fan, it will recirculate the air.
A:AnswerI was able to use the the same mounting rack from a very similar Whirlpool I had professionally installed 9 years earlier. Some plastic piece on the door latch actuator broke on the old whirlpool microwave that I used several times a day. Although this could be a cheap fix "if" one properly takes apart and puts back together, I decided to just buy a new microwave. I was lucky and the mounting plate was exactly the same. My wife and I were able to just slip the new microwave in and tighten down the bolts.
A:AnswerThe vent is on the top rear as with most over the range microwaves. You can vent it traditionally (ie to an outside vent) or recirculate it, which means just that--the air recirculates as opposed to being vented outside. There is an air filter used for this that comes with the unit. I have done it both ways, depending on the house. In my opinion it's always better to vent outside but sometimes there may not be an existing outside vent to attach to so unless you want to make one by cutting a hole through an outside wall, you would simply use the recirculating option. Hope that helps!
