Customer Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: Anonymous
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.

Is the handle on the microwave oven door stainless steel?

In the past I owned a microwave with a plastic handle which broke. I need a strong door handle.

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 5902.
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 4 out of 5 by from Very nice One problem that we had was the door , must be closed rather forcefully to operate, almost slam closed other wise the ( door) error comes on. Other wise it is flawless. Don't know if this has been an issue by others. [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 4 out of 5 by from Meets Expectations November 2016: Just purchased a replacement Whirlpool over the stove microwave. After 15 years the original Whirlpool Gold version was still working. Only plastic door parts were beginning to crack. New version is not a really direct replacement. Some features are missing (e.g. turntable on/off) - never used it anyway. Other one-touch (sensor) features are still available. Would have given it a 5-star rating had the User Manual been more helpful. Going from a 20-page manual to a 6-page pamphlet was a big mistake by Whirlpool. The new software has some very confusing icons which are NOT explained in the pamphlet. The on-line Product Help Articles do not even explain icons. The "DEMO" feature is great, but there are no examples posted in the Help (like the old manual). All things considered, I am very pleased with the product and its performance. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from works fine bought this to replace a higher end whirlpool micro that lasted less than two years. only had this one a month when the light (under, over stovetop) went out and I can't find a replacement bulb. only bought this one because i had purchased all whirlpool appliances less than two years ago...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Issues w Cooktop ligh I can NOT figure out the proper bulb to replace the Cooktop light and it continues to go out.... the official manual does not state what type of bulb and I can't find the specs on this website either which is very frustrating. I find ease of use not too be intuitive- especially when I want to use the defrost or melt option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the settings Never thought I would "love " a microwave, but this one is great. Gives lots of special options like cooking potatoes etc, and they come out just right. The defrost does not cook the food it comes out only defrosted. Soft and melt does just that. So happy with my choice. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the microwave, the vent hood not so much The microwave is one of the best I've ever owned. Never had a problem with it but it seems like the ventilation just doesn't have enough suction power to draw steam or smoke towards it. Does anyone else have this problem and what have you done to resolve it?
