Can anyone offer me any imput as to whether or not the location of this microwave's vents would damage the wooden cabinets above?

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.
Asked by: Lulu
Yes they can damage the surface of your cabinets, mostly from grease fumes from cooking. The steam will carry the grease in the air and a cold surface (like a cabinet door )will attact the grease and over time will collect and in some cases break down the cabinet finish. You can buy a vent deflector to dirrect the air out to the front of the cabinet away from the surface.

does it have a clock ?

Asked by: gene
The clock is digital and sets easily. My granddaughter is 10 and she insisted on setting it right after we installed it -- she figured it out by looking at the controls.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shuts down completely I just purchased this microwave during the black friday weekend sale and, at first, thought it was an excellent deal! Last night my wife was heating something for about 2 minutes and it completely shut down like it had been unplugged. I checked for power at the outlet (the microwave is on its own circuit) and it was good. I unplugged the unit, gave it a few minutes, plugged it back in and it was fine. I decided to check elsewhere on the internet for reviews since there were none yet on homedepot.com and was surprised to find out that many others are experiencing the exact same problem!!! Several people have exchanged their unit for another, only to have the same problems right out of the box! I am wondering now if the best course of action is to return this unit and spend the extra money on a better one? I haven't checked with Magic Chef yet, but with all the problems, there should be a recall soon!!!!

While this microwave does a great job in cooking food, the exhaust fan is EXTREMELY when the unit is on. No there's nothing that failed, or unusual. This a design flaw of the manufacturer. This unit is so loud that you can't hold a conversation in the kitchen. If you have a decibel meter app or a hand held dB unit you'll see it is well over 60 (listening level of music). Probably the level closer to a running lawn mower with your windows open. That's poor engineering and design. Of course it appears that this model is discontinued now, I tell you the next version that fan noise NEEDS to be addressed. Out of all the microwaves my family has owned since the early 80s, this is by far the noisiest.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Value But Get the Extended Warranty I purchased this Magic Chef (MC) over the range microwave to replace the exact same unit that failed after almost six years of service. While I wanted to upgrade to a more expensive brand, I chose the same model as the old one died in the middle of the holiday season so I needed to replace it quickly. By purchasing the same model as the replacement meant I could use the existing mounting hardware. My son and I were able to remove and replace the unit in less than an hour. It seems that this product category is very prone to failures early in the purchase cycle, Purchasing a more expensive brand appears to be no guarantee of long life performance. My MC microwave has all the features I need for defrosting, multiple power levels and decent size turntable/interior. It seems my new MC over heats faster than the old one. Maybe the later production units are better. In any case I would strongly recommend getting an extended warranty (1-2years) no matter what brand of OTR unit you purchase. The Home Depot extended warranties are pretty reasonably priced.

Didn't know that you do NOT have an option to cut the fan off when the microwave is running. First microwave I have ever had doesn't give you that choice. (Had to call customer service to find that out.) You do have the choice of low or high but both are extremely noisy and irritating. Also didn't notice you can't turn the turntable off either - my fault for not looking for that on the front panel. Cooking time is about the same as other 1,000 watt microwaves I have had, except some foods need about 2-5 more minutes time. Would not recommend or buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Second Magic Chef Microwave I purchased this to replace a Magic Chef MCO160UB that we had for six years and used multiple times daily. We never had a problem with the MCO160UB, which is why we stayed with the brand. Another plus is the new MCO165UB microwave was easy to install since the bracket and screw positions in the cabinet match perfectly with the older unit. I didn't even have to use the new bracket - just mounted the new microwave to the old one & tightened the cabinet screws. No re-drilling necessary! I have had this unit for two months, and am hopeful it works a well as the unit it replaced. So far, it has been perfect. This unit does not have as many features as the more expensive microwaves, which is fine with me. I did purchase the additional two year warranty for a very small amount, but doubt I'll have to use it. Great product that looks sleek in our kitchen but is functional as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall pleased with purchase I don't use my microwave for anything complicated- I simply heat and/or reheat things- no gourmet meals being prepared, not cooking whole chickens, etc.- therefore, this item more than serves that purpose. It heats quickly and well, much better than the counter top microwave it replaced. My only concern - if you can call it that- would be that the door is rather loud when it closes and I'm sometimes bugged at having to push the cook button before just entering the time and start- minor annoyance at best. The size works for me because I don't really like when the oven protrudes too far beyond the front and/or bottom of the cabinet. Oh, and it's kind of weird that the name brand isn't actually on the oven.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from we wanted white, so it was special ordered. There... we wanted white, so it was special ordered. There was no problem with the installation as it was the same model we had (and liked) . From day one there is an "off" odor surrounding the microwave that intensifies when it is used. Nothing works to get rid of it. It also does not heat or cook as hot as our old one. We are returning it to HOme Depot and ordering a replacement. Hopefully, this one will be everything our old Magic Chef gave us for so many years.
