I am considering purchasing this particular microwave, but have just noticed that the vents appear to be located at the top of the unit whereas my present (dead) one has the vents at the bottom. Since my microwave is located directly under an all-wood cabinet, I am concerned that the location of this unit's vents would (over time) damage my beautiful cabinets.

I don't have this particular model, so I can't give you a fair review, BUT your question interested me because I have a "kenmore" which is very similar that finally died after barely three questionabke years...(of note... Sears will charge $249 JUST to come look at their broken products) So you have a VERY valid concern and I can't find ANY info on why that happens or what we can do about it. We had dual mode vents just like this model... Exhaust and Recirculation oh, and also a NO vent option too...And the vents face "up" toward the cabinet as well. We have had constant moisture in the micro and noticeably slight warmth and high humidity in the cabinets to the point of nearly ruining them. We even keep one of those disposable "humidity containers" inside the cabinet that fills up with water every couple of weeks! We are in Florida in a new-ish 2006 Condo on the beach on the 5th floor, with only one floor above us. The Maintenance man said he checked the microwave exhaust fan outside on the roof (aluminum duct in the cabinet IS attached to the micro correctly). The duct and exhaust fan seems to be intact and working fine like everyone else's (so far no one else in the building has this problem). Incredibly, even though our micro has not run for a month, (control panel is shot) the microwave actually has even MORE condensation in it right now...And pretty much all the time. We haven't even been using the stove much lately... Eating out often, so I'm going crazy trying to figure out where all this moisture is coming from. There is a lot of mildew inside the cabinets now that have finally discolored the maple to the point of no return, even with frequent bleach/water solution and oxycleaning. So I've asked everyone, no one knows if it's the microwave or the exhaust duct/fan that runs outside. I was blaming the microwave but now I can only assume there is some fault with the exhaust duct/fan which is attached correctly but not being used at all. The condensation has been there the whole time we've had the micro, we just tried to keep it clean and dry and ignore it, but I don't recall it happening with the previous microwave we had, which was original and made it 7 years. Whether we used fan/vent to exhaust or Recirc or nothing at all, it's constantly watery in there. Drips down the inside of micro door and needs to be mopped up with paper towels, finally caused rim of rust inside the micro door jamb. . And now, condensation even with ZERO use. I am assuming this will keep happening no matter what microwave we have. It's summer now, so maybe there is just a lot of heat and humidity somehow leaking in thru the exhaust on the roof?... Maybe cold air from the A/C in the kitchen is blowing on the warm cabinets and leaving condensation inside the cabinet AND the micro? Our kitchen itself remains pretty chill most of the time but tthe inside of the cabinet, which encloses the rooftop exhaust duct/fan, is always noticeably musty and damp inside. This is so weird, frustrating and I'm not sure what to do. Not having an under cabinet microwave there would look terrible. Plus I don't want to lose valuable space to a countertop microwave. So depending on how you are "set up" for this in your kitchen, and depending on where you live and many other factors, I'm not sure that anyone experiencing this problem can be guaranteed that it's ever even really the microwave itself at all. I think we will have to just try capping off the exhaust duct completely and get a replacement micro under the cabinet and hope that using the recirculate vent only will solve the problem. Sorry I am not much help, but I can't find any help on this either an hopefully someone else can shed light on it before I spend a few hundred bucks on an "experiment". I hope you find a satisfactory answer, but this can happen no matter what if you have exposure from "outside" coming IN your cabinets. Read Less

You either have ducting to vent outside and in that case, you remove fan assembly and rotate so fan discharges up and install damper. Check by plugging into extension cord and test. Output of MW is 4" X 10" so you may need transition to typical 6" or 7" round duct

Answer: 
Hi Lulu,
You are spot on, the vent is on the top and cooking grease will eventually accumulate on the cabinet.
The venting system is convertible and the unit may used with a vent to the outside.
However a vent pipe will have to be routed through the cabinet to the roof.
If you live in an apartment of condo, this may not be possible.

Answer: 
It will fit fine. You may need to trim your cabinet a little. Also the holes in the cabinet above most likely won't line up, so you'll need to drill new ones. Finally, the mounting bracket most likely won't work, so plan on removing the old one and installing a new one. The microwave comes with a bracket and template to drill holes.

Answer: 
This microwave requires a 30 inch opening. The actual size is approx. 29 7/8. The opening on most cabinets over the stove to hold a vent hood or microwave vent hood is standard 30 inch. Normally if you are replacing a microwave with a microwave it should fit.

Hi st123,
This microwave is 1 1/2 inches taller than your present microwave, so it may or may not fit based on what you have on the wall below the microwave, (ie) wall tile, high back splash etc.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by be ready to get frustrated Poor install instuctions. Templates looked like english spanish scrable with arrows pointing here there but here if there. Overhead vent you have to take out and reinstall the fan. The exhaust is retangular so youll need adapter duct. If your replacing an overhead like me then be ready to cut out your cabinet. At least i get the property managers approval. I did get upset when the templete didnt add the 1/2 in the rear unit middle sticks out. June 17, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by white plastic yellows over time Have owned this item for approx 4 years. The white textured plastic on the door (excluding handle) has yellowed and now does not match my white kitchen cupboards. Also find that the built in exhaust fan is not as powerful as a regular fan hood. Not sure that I would ever purchase an over the range microwave again. At the time, I paid more for my unit.
