      A:  Correct, keypad doesn't light up at anytime. Nothing to do to change I either turn the kitchen light on, or, I open the door to the Microwave and it provides adequate light to, say, find and turn the microwave light off at night. Also, as info, the microwave will not work when the timer is already engaged. Jim

      A:  Not to my knowledge

      by|Mar 7, 2021

      A:  hi Samiam. i had the same unhappy discovery: keypad was unusable unless external lighting was On. dunno if this can be "fixed," it is lazy UI design IMO. at least we can be glad the door is not glued shut. if i am heating coffee before sunrise and don't yet want blasting room light, i hold the door open slightly, the internal light reflects off of me onto keypad, and i can see just enough to enter a time and rest my finger on Start before closing door (and pressing Start). FWIW. :)

                A:  Hi Aaron. This info is normally included in the Info & Guides section of the Product Overview for your microwave on the HomeDepot.com website. Unfortunately, it looks like HD has not finished this section; most docs just open a Use and Care manual. The missing docs are included in your shipped product (thankfully!) and you can find more info at SamSung.com like this specification: https://image-us.samsung.com/SamsungUS/home/home-appliances/microwaves/over-the-range/me16k3000/pdf/ME16K3000_V5.pdf. On page 2 of this spec, you will see they specify a minimum of 30" between cabinet bottom and range top so, since another picture shows microwave is 16.5" tall, your minimum gap between bottom of microwave and top of range would be around 13.5". HTH! :)

                A:  The bottom edge of the cabinet needs to be 30˝ or more from the cooking surface. Thank you for choosing Samsung! ^Lena

                  A:  The non-vented option exhaust from the front of the microwave. A Charcoal Filter Accessory Kit is required for the non-vented exhaust. Thank you for choosing Samsung! ^Lena

                  by|Feb 9, 2021

                    A:  Hi PT. Ventless exhaust comes out from the top front, an opening right behind that horizontal metal strip atop microwave face. So depth of microwave must exceed that of the cabinet it hangs from (see instructions for details). You can remove the horizontal strip to install a new charcoal filter (you loosen three screws and need to Slide it sideways before it comes out, I almost broke mine by forgetting this, they should draw an arrow reminder methinks). You may also need to rotate the built-in blower to blow air in the proper direction (it is easy, just be careful to not over-tighten screws in plastic). hth, :)
