Question about Whirlpool MH3184XP Microwave Oven
When turned on, the fan doesn't seem to be suctioning the steam/smoke form the stove top when cooking (and it trips my home smoke detector). I can hear the exhaust fan blowing and can feel the air coming out at the top. Does this microwave have a separate suction fan? If so, where is it located and how can I fix/replace it? If none, what could be the cause(s) of it not sucking/suctioning the smoke?
SOURCE: Fan on over the range microwave
This may be caused by a weak fan, improper installation, clogged filters, blocked air ducts, or a blocked outside vent.
Assuming yours is a Whirlpool, you can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
This will help you check the mounting and setup, as well as helping you check the filters to see where the problem lies.
Please write back with your brand and model number if you yours is not Whirlpool.
