Motor was turned to vent outside but it doesn't draw well.

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual and installation instructions, you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########


On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.

That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they will ask you to register.

Many times, the owner's manual will have the installation instructions inside.

If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the
Sears parts site.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

When turning Fan on (any speed), top vent grille blowing lots of air, but not pulling air underneath


some microwaves vent to the exterior. check outside for a vent. If it is a recirculating model, perhaps the filters are plugged, the vent pathway is blocked (packaging material) or a loose panel at the back so that the exhaust fan air is leaking out somewhere else. I don't know what else it could be unless the fan is loose on the motor shaft and the fan motor is running but the fan blades are not moving air.

You can buy a rear vent that is superior to a dryer vent. When this isn't possible you need a rectangular duct going up through your cabinet and up through your ceiling. hopefully you have an attic or you have to switch to a 5 inch tube going sideways (above your cabinets (if there is space) to the outside wall. If it goes into an attic you have to cut through the shingles to a vent made for bathroom and or hood vents. The motor and blower assembly inside your microwave is designed to turn to be front facing, rear facing or vertical facing. Just unscrew or break out the side that you need to vent through.

We changed the charcoal filter & reset it. The vent fan still does not run. I cannot turn the vent on by pressing the vent button but the micro still heats up. What happened to the fan?


follow this steps and fix iT. God bless you


  1. Exhaust fan motorIf your exhaust fan motor is not running, there are a couple of things that you can check involving the motor to locate the problem. After removing the fan motor, you can manually attempt to turn the fan blades with your hand. If the fan motor is working properly, the blades should spin effortlessly. If this does not occur and the blades are taught, the motor will need to be replaced. Secondly, the fan motor itself can burn out due to time and usage. Using an ohm meter, the exhaust fan motor should read open for continuity. If it does not, then the fan motor has expired and will need to be replaced.
  2. ThermostatAnother part that could cause the microwave exhaust fan to not work is a faulty thermostat. A thermostat gauges the air temperature, which activates the exhaust fan when required. If this part becomes flawed, the exhaust fan will not energize and the thermostat will need to be replaced.
  3. Main control boardIf your exhaust fan is still not working and the microwave fan motor, wiring, and thermostat are operating accurately, the root cause could be with the main control board. Replace the main control board.

Emerson microwave mwg9115sl over heats then turns back on after 20 minutes


Your magnetron is overheating, which can be caused by:


  • operating oven without cover(s) in place
  • wrong magnetron installed in oven
  • an old or otherwise failing magnetron
  • cracked magnetron magnet
  • improper power line voltage (should be 110-125VAC)
  • foods low in moisture (popcorn & bacon, e.g. - add 1/2 cup of water in rear oven)
  • failed or inoperable cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan
  • deteriorating foam weatherstripping seals in air ducts or on outside cover
  • blocked air vents (dust, animal nest debris, insufficient free air space behind & around oven, etc.)
  • clogged or greasy charcoal filter or grease filter
  • blocked duct in hood vent exhaust

The first suspects in my book are fan failure, blocked vents, or bad magnetron.

Ge spacemakerxl microwave jvm1650 vent is not drawing air


It is possible, you have removed and checked the filters, still the intake is low even without the protective filters. The system will need to be taken apart to find the opstruction, or as you said a hole in the venting mechanism.

The microwave doesn't seem to be bringing the air up into the vent for exhaustion outside. It's brand new.


I presume that you can hear the fan running? If so, most over the cook top microwaves have an option to vent to the outside or simply recycle through the filter and vents above the unit. If you check your manual there should be instructions on how to change this configuration to suit your situation, but it likely needs to be done before you install the microwave.
http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Springfield/316137234.pdf
The above manual shows how to reconfigure the microwave from recirculation (as shipped) to external exhaust setup on pages 4 - 5.

I had the exhaust switched from inside to outside venting, but there is no air intake. What do I need to check?


Check to see if the damper is stuck, either on the exterior vent outside the house or at the microwave. Also, did the blower get turned to point at the desired exaust direction. Unfortunately, both interior possibilities will require removing the microwave.

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!

JVM1790 Microwave GE-Draws air from bottom and top vents


1. You have to have exhaust pipe to connect m/w vent and this pipe has to be free from obstruction.
2. If it already connected and good, but air come from vent bar over door, then blow motor on top of the m/w was installed in wrong position ( motor has 2 -3 position depends which way air coming out up, back or front).
3. In this case you have to remove m/w from installation and change motor position.
