Question about Microwave Ovens
I would say that you do not have to vent it outside. One of the most common complaints I get is that the microwave is not sucking up a lot of air. I have called Whirlpool and they have said that most of these newer microwaves don't really have a lot of air movement in them and they have smaller blower motors. Some of this was due to the fact that people didn't like the noise of a big fan that was necessary fo move air. I have noticed this on my own also. When boiling sweetcorn this summer, it would barely **** up the steam whether it was recirc or to the outside, I usually test them by putting a cleenex under the vent abd see if it holds it there. Bottom line is they really don't move a lot of air and it's not worth the cost and time of venting it out. Hope that helps
