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 White is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 5346.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working after 3 months of use Started using the brand new microwave in November 2016 and after 2-3 months of use it began having issues. First, the switch for the door quit working. Sometimes, when the door was opened the light would not come on or it would flicker off and on. Sometimes, when the door was closed and you attempted to heat something it would think the door was still open and give you a "door" error. Now it has quit heating food all together. It will run, but when you take the food out it is still cold. Very disappointed in Whirlpool with this product. Even worse they won't replace it, they will only have it repaired. I fear that Whirlpool's quality and the pride they take in their products is following the rest of the undependable brands. They should have stood by their product and replaced it, no questions asked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked for 18 months Installed in one of my rental units. Worked for less than 18 months. And of course ... it's only under warranty for 12 months. Guess I'm done with Whirlpool.

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 Great Features I bought this about 6 months ago and very pleased with. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Microwave Oven With Some Caveats Not a bad Microwave oven. We had it installed 1 1/2 years ago and have used it daily since. It is relatively quiet and does the job if the instructions for re-heating and cooking are followed. It is very nice looking and matches our Whirlpool glass cook-top range. My rating reflects two elements: The interior light does not turn on very frequently, so the oven will not work. I slap my hand to the side of the inside of the oven and sometimes, not always, works. My second complaint is there is no "Pause" control and one must turn it off and restart, which is a nuisance. I would recommend this oven, if someone could "walk me through" how to fix the light for reliable use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Magnetron died after only 16months I purchased this microwave just a little over a year before it started having problems. It wasn't heating & turns out after a $79.00 inspection charge that the magnetron was dead & that it would cost me $300, which is more than we paid for the microwave. I can't get an extended warranty to cover charges, no one to help troubleshoot over the phone or online. So frustrating, especially since we are moving & have to replace the microwave with a similar looking product. I also have a whirlpool oven that takes extremely long to heat & all the numbers & even edges of the microwave are rubbing off after again only a little over a year. Very cheaply made products in our opinion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from POOREST LONGEVITY OF ANY MICOWAVE I'VE OWNED The heating mechanism (the diode?) malfunctioned after 6 months. I had it repaired under the warranty. It took THREE weeks for Whirlpool to find me a repairman. Two years and 28 days later the heating mechanism is not working AGAIN! I just returned from Home Depot with a new GE microwave. Lets see if that is better. The LAST microwave I had lasted 10 years with NO problems. I'm EXTREMELY disappointed in this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Microwave We purchased a new home October 2016 and the microwave came with the house. If we are using the stove and the microwave decides it's too hot the fan comes on high and won't stop for an extremely long time. We can't hear the television for the duration of the fan's use. We unplug the microwave and it stops, but this is not acceptable. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
