    I need to vent the microwave out of the kitchen. The current vent blows inside the house. I want to change the vent to blow to exterior; need to know if there is a minimum height requirement to properly vent from microwave to outside..

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.

I'm installing a new Over Stove Microwave. Want to do outside vent, but a 2x4 stud blocks the 10" wide rectange of space needed for vent. Is it possible to vent up through cabinet above then...


When you say "outside vent" do you mean horizontally through an outside wall? If that is what you are trying to do having the 2x4 in the way does not make much of a deterrent. But if it makes you feel better, moving over a bit and not have the 2x4 in the way, that certainly would be better.

So are you saying that the vent hole doesn't line up with the microwave vent hole? I had a similar problem, it didn't matter since most of the new over the stove microwaves can vent back into the house as an option.

My Micro vents into the kitchen instead of venting up the exhaust vent. What could be wrong


Hi,

The fans on an over the stove microwave can be rotated up to 180 degrees depending on how the installer intends to vent the hood. Your fan is pointed forward and venting into the kitchen through a charcoal filter. If you want to vent through the ducting and out of the kitchen, you'll have to drop the microwave down off of the mounting bracket and rotate the fans in the back, pointing the dicsharge upward for a vertical vent, or 180 degrees, if it discharges out the back (wall vent). In both cases, an adapter is necessary, and can be obtained at any hardware store.
Best regards, --W/D--
