Are you sure Microwave needs outside venting? Most don't. Kenmor is a Sears brand. Just check with them or in their catalogue.

SOURCE: we have a vented kenmore range hood that is vented

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you may have a clog, in the vent pipe, not uncommon in the winter for wild things to build nest..
their is also a air damper plate, that might be stuck, this damper prevents outside air from blowing back in

The light inside the microwave will not go off and nothing else will work on the microwave.


Have the door switch adjusted or replaced as the system will not allow anything to happen unless it reads the door as closed.

Why double filter on Maytag Microwave


If your range hood or microwave recirculates back in to the room.

Both filters are required. The mesh filter catches the grease & air particulate. The carbon filter should be changed regularly www.HoodFilterFactory.com ( avoid range fires that spread quickly) & clears the recirculated air from smoke,odors, & airborne particulate.

With yours venting to the outside, you ONLY need the mesh filter. These filters should be cleaned regularly ( Avoid mentioned hazard) & should be replaced when you can no longer clean them enough to see through them when holding up to the light.

Good Luck

Samsung Microwave for over the range vent issue


Most over the range models can be vented to the outside, or they can be set up (sometimes requiring a special adapter) to recirculate with a charcoal filter.

It depends on the model, and you would of course have to consult the installation instructions to be sure.

You can download many Samsung over the range microwave installation instructions here.

You may need the free DJVU viewer to view or print your manual.

You can order Samsung parts here.

Can this microwave be vented to the outside?


Yes, this microwave will vent either out through the top or the back. A damper will be needed if it was not saved when the unit was installed. A list of other items are listed in the installation instructions at this link To GE.

Venting


If this microwave has vented outside in the past then most likely a bird or something has built i nest in or on the vent blocking airflow. If its always been this way then in order for this model to vent though an exterior duct the blower motor has to be flipped so that it blows upwards and a vent connector needs to be installed. This is a fairly easy process once the microwave has been taken down but can be dangerous because there is a capacitor that holds 4000 volts that can discharge though the cabinet if you're not careful.

Outside venting GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800


Your vent flap could be taped or it could be faulty installation not allowing the vent to open. If you take the front vent cover off, you should be able to reach in above the fan unit and gently push the vent flap up, it should move freely with no binding. If it doesn't it is taped or blocked. If it is taped, gently putting upward pressure on the flap might release the tape. If that doesn't work the vent installation is blocking the flap. You might have to remove the unit from the wall (two people to do this) or disassemble the vent duct above the microwave and rework the interface for clearance.

hope this helps,

Venting


You will need the take the microwave down and take the shell off. Then take the vent fan out and turn it around the opposite direction and it will blow the other way.

Yes this can be done.  The unit will need to be taken down and the vent fan will need to be reversed.

Kenmore microhood


"Microhood" seems to be a slang term for the "microwave hood" (hood fan or exhaust fan) which is normally part of an over-the-range microwave oven or range. But these should be available separately, as I seem to recall. I would contact home centers such as Lowe's, Home Depot (if they still exist), etc., or a local appliance store.
