Customer Questions & Answers

Can this model sit on the counter? The light and fan are not an issue, don't need to use them.

Why not just by a microwave that sits on the counter?

Can this Microwave Oven Vent to The Outside

Wondering this has option to vent to the outside instead of recirculation. Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, instructions are included for outside venting. The default is recirculation.

What is needed to vent this microwave as recirculating?

Asked by: Greger
Mine was configured for recirculating out of the box. It had instructions for setting up exterior vents and I believe that required removing a steel plate in the back.

Customer Reviews

1.7 cu. ft. Over the Range Microwave in Stainless Steel is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5777.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement for same brand Replacement for a 2002 Whirlpool microwave (900W) that died - bad magnetron. I've always liked Whirlpool appliances. Would have give this 5 stars, but for some reason they have changed the microprocessor and now you can't start a timer function while a cook cycle is in progress. Used to use that feature a lot on old unit. Also wish the control panel membrane sense spots were just a little larger. Seem to be about half the size of old unit. And of course, I wish they would standardize the mounting hole locations from one model to another. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from failed at 1.5 years We LOVED this microwave, until it's 1 1/2 birthday. Then it failed to heat, no heat at all. Just past warranty, aren't appliances supposed to last longer? When I called about it Whirlpool tried to sell me a new warranty and service plan for 2x the original price of the appliance. When I balked they offered a replacement "deal" for $167. I visited the store and there was one on closeout for $138. Didn't buy it! Soo much hassle to remove and re-install this myself.... :( Instead now I have a beautiful stainless steel cupboard/timer/fan and light (that I have to hit to turn on) that looks like a microwave. Oh well... It does store things inside very well!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from TOO LOUD!!! We bought this microwave 8 months ago. We can't hear the tv when the microwave is used! If we are using the stove and the microwave decides that it's too hot, the fan comes on and won't stop for an extremely long time. Again, we can't hear the tv for the duration of the fan's use. If I could have unplugged it I would. Whirlpool, please fix this!!! It is beyond annoying. On the plus side, the inside of the microwave is easy to clean.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't heat after only a year of being in our new home We purchased a brand new home with all Whirlpool products and the microwave stopped heating after a little over a year... we noticed a few odd things within the year like the light staying on, etc. but didn't think much of it as it would typically self correct. Bummed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Will it last longer than last one? This one replaced a prior Whirlpool model, and while it works now I wonder if it will last longer than the 3 years the last one did before it stopped heating. Are products today meant to be disposable? [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LOUD! I bought this unit on 12/27/16 and had it installed same-day. When I used it for the first time I noticed that the motor at the top of the unit was very loud and took a few seconds to wind down after the cook cycle. Not a technical person but I think it's the motor near the exhaust vent coming out of the top of the unit. I just completed an online chat with Whirlpool customer service and they say that this is 'normal and expected' (direct quote). The microwave seems to work fine otherwise but be advised that the motor is loud!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sorry I Purchased I had to replace my 16 year old Whirlpool microwave. I got the current generation model because I loved the old one so much, and I am so disappointed. It does fit, but it is much bigger than the old version, meaning that it hangs down lower over the stove. This now makes canning near impossible as there is not enough room on the stove. In addition the fan is really loud. And because it is so big and hangs down so low, the fan automatically turns on when cooking on the stove, and it is so loud that people in the living room can't hear TV. I am so disappointed in this new model. Don't things get smaller when they improve over the years? It also sticks out an extra inch, but it is the additional 3 inches that it hangs down that is the problem. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features and style This microwave has an updated front from my last, the vent cover is on top making the front of the microwave very smooth in detail. I like the 2 blower fan, both settings are surprisingly quiet. I like that I can mute the button sounds, make this microwave almost silent while in use, no beeping when programing or end of cycle. A really nice microwave with a great vent and light for cooking on my range. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
