Over the Range Kitchen-Aide Microwave/Vent Stainless Steel

I have an Over the Range Kitchen-Aide Microwave/Vent in Stainless Steel that is right at 4 years old. The faceplate of the vent has broken off on the front of the microwave. This is located just above the microwave door and runs all the way across the top front of the unit. Therefore it is very unattactive looking and if I use the vent system while cooking on my stove top the air from the vent blows directly on top of my head! The part is very cheaply made and I am very dissapointed. My warranty said this is only cosmetic and they will charge me a lot of money to come out an look at it not to mention how much the part will cost. My husband can fix it if we can just get a new part to put up there. Can you tell me what the part number is so I can order one? If not, how can I find out? Where can I go??
Thanks!

Do i need a special vent kit to vent microwave to outside


Yes, an adapter/kit should have come with the unit and then you would have to buy the piping etc.If you do not have the adapter/kit get it from the manufacturer or unit seller.

No power lights no power in microwave


First check is the main fuse of the unit. On countertop units, you will need to take the shell off. The fuse will be close to where the cord comes through into the unit. OTR units, this main fuse is usually behind the control panel or possibly behind the vent. Usually the fuse is obvious if blown, otherwise test with an OHM meter, if open, replace fuse.
Some brands will also have a thermal cut-off fuse in the incoming voltage line to the control board. Older Maytags and Samsungs have this fuse in it. This thermostat looking fuse is usually above the oven cavity somewhere under the outside shell. Sometimes you can get to it through the vent of OTR models. Test with an OHM meter, replace if open.
remember use VOM. God bless you

Hot microwave door handle


I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

This model does not list Stainless Steel as a feature. Stainless Steel is used in the interior (CAVITY) of a Microwave if it is a Combination Convection/Microwave Oven. The Convection Oven can reach temperatures of 400+ degreesF. This Temperature would MELT the paint off a painted interior.
Stainless Steel can be tested with a Magnet. It will not be attracted or "Stick" to Stainless.
Hope this answers your concerns!
Thanks!
