How do I change the front exhaust to top exhaust on a Kenmore microwave/hood


Hi,

In order to change the venting on the microhood you need to uninstall the unit and at the top of the microwave is the blower unit. Remove the cover, flip the blower and you should then see the fins on the motor, reinstall the unit under the cabinet and your good to go. I hope this helps, good luck

I would like to know whether the factory blower orientation for MMV4205AA had changed since 2000. Was it changed from top vent to circulating (into the room)? If it did, when did this change...


Here are the instructions for re-orentation of the blower.

The unit is shipped in the room vent configuration. The blower is re-orented for a wall vent.

Venting of microwave - house stinks of bacon


Interesting post, because I have the same problem! I have spent the better part of today researching and taking our microwave apart (partially) to inspect the top portion re: outside vent. Everytime the microwave is on, the "active vent door" (manufacturer's term, not mine!) opens. Apparently this is normal. But it also opens when you turn on the vent fan, when cooking on the stovetop. I don't like this feature, because I think it 'overrides' the outside venting system. I double checked our outside vent to ensure that when this oven was installed, the person did in fact allow the flap to be open when the fan is on (he did). So I think what 'our' problem is, is that the microwave active vent sort of interferes with the outside vent, thus more of the cooking smell being blown into the house instead of the outdoors. I was thinking of simply disconnecting the gizmo that make the active vent door open each time you use the oven and/or vent fan option however I don't think that's a good idea as apparently the main purpose of the active vent door is to keep the electronics of the microwave oven from overheating. The more I read about this version of microwave, the less impressed I am with it. Lots of electronic issues with it. I am not fussy either with having the microwave over the cooktop. Sorry I don't have a solution for your problem but I do feel your pain!!!

Can the lg lmv2083st microwave be vented to an outside vent? not clear from the installation manual.


On page 8 of the installation manual I found, it shows that the oven can be vented to the outside. You can view it at this link:

http://www.managemyhome.com/mmh/lis_pdf/INSTL/L0707162.pdf

If the link does not work, you can go to managemyhome.com and type in your model number under the "Manuals" link.

In the manual it describes three methods of venting: Room, Roof, and Wall. It also gives guidance on how to properly install the duct work.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Where is the charcoal filter?


There is no charcoal filter unless you replaced the standard filter with a carcoal filter. Also, it may have m=been changed to a charcoal filter if the unit was alterd during installation as a re-circulating vent, not vented to the outside via the roof or wall.

The filter (Charcoal or not) is on the bottom of the unit. Put your head under the microwave and look up, there it is.

Whirlpool microwave oven mh7155xmb0 not venting


Possibly a bird built a nest (swallows) in or on the roof vent. Make sure the fan turns freely when off. Check the vent tube that goes up to the roof--if flex-tubing, it may have collapsed and pinched off the air flow (it may be too long). Make sure that a one-way valve which should be near the exit of the hood is free to move when air flow pushes on it. This valve is supposed to prevent back-flow of air into the house. Hope this helps!

How does the vent work?


Under cabinet microwaves generally have two configurations for venting.
1) There is a vent cover plate on the top or rear (sometimes both) of the unit that can be removed and connected to a duct that vents up to the roof. If you do not have such a duct installed then that cover plate should be left on the unit so that it vents in configuration 2.
2) With the external venting ports sealed with the cover plate(s) the microwave simple draws air from the bottom (usually through 1 or 2 grease capture screens) and vents it out thought the front/top of the unit. This configuration isn't very useful as it just blows the air back into the kitchen. Many people don't both using the microwaves blower in this configuration.
