No suction on my microwave


Over-the-range microwaves have lights and fans in them mostly for show. They protect the microwave from heat rising from the stove and provide a light to illuminate the stove top. The fan assembly is far too small to generate any real pull or draft and if it did, it would only blow it back in your face since these models do not exhaust to the outside; they only exhaust out the front of the microwave. A few models have a "filter screen" that is supposedly there to catch grease and contaminates but really it only serves to further weaken the draft as it provides a resistance to air flow.

Can a Kenmore Microwave oven Model 401.8504*, 85143 be put on a counter top and used?


Most over-the-range (OTR) microwave ovens have the exhaust fan funning at low speed when the microwave oven is working. This is to keep the magnetron and electronics cool. And it sucks air in from the bottom, so if you just place this microwave flat on the countertop, it won't be able to suck air in, and it could overheat if you use it for more than just a few minutes. But if you can put it on some boards or some sort of grill so air can get to the bottom, then you should be okay to use it as a counter-top model.

Electrolux otr microwave drawing air fromtop of microwave


I would direct you to first refer to your installation instructions to be sure everything is installed correctly.

Then I would refer you to the owner's manual for information on checking and cleaning / changing the grease filter or charcoal filter.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

If you need further help, you can contact Electrolux at 800-944-9044.

Can I replace a 1.3 cu ft otr microwave with a 1.5


Brackets can remain the same throughout a particular brand for several years but will also change every year at times. Same year and same brand, I would say yes. Different year of manufacture or different brand name I would say, no it will not fit the existing brackets. If you have a particular brand in mind and have the model number of the existing OTR, it is usually possible to search out installation instructions for both at the manufacturer's website. You could then compare to see if they will match up. The two screws through the upper cabinet floor into thr top of the OTR can vary, within a particular brand even in the same year of manufacturer.

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.

I have Amana Radar Range microwave. The repair guy was just here (fixing my real stove) and told me to change fuse to ''20 amp 250 volt fast acting ceramic fuse.'' Where is the fuse on this microwave?


first unplug your microwave and let sit for awhile to drain any stored energy that may zap you. then, if it is an "otr" there are 2 screws in the vent slats on top that you remove. once removed, you lift up on the control panel and it tilts out. voila! there is your fuse. pop it out and pop in a new one. ceramic 20 amp is correct. check your old fuse to be sure it is 20, not 15 though.
