how to vent exhaust outside - bea12bfe-3a65-4764-8544-5bc63391c2dc.jpg6bfcce66-f35e-4950-b5c4-5ba9eff2c34c.jpgI usually choose an outside wall if possible to vent outside. You can buy a rear vent that is superior to a dryer vent. When this isn't possible you need a rectangular duct going up through your cabinet and up through your ceiling. hopefully you have an attic or you have to switch to a 5 inch tube going sideways (above your cabinets (if there is space) to the outside wall. If it goes into an attic you have to cut through the shingles to a vent made for bathroom and or hood vents. The motor and blower assembly inside your microwave is designed to turn to be front facing, rear facing or vertical facing. Just unscrew or break out the side that you need to vent through.

Need to know if I can convert it to outside vent


This unit has a three way exhaust capability on it. There is a plate on the back that you remove to set the blower housing to back, top or frontal exhaust. You take the plate off and then just lift the blower assy. up and then reset it back into position for the direction that you want. It may be missing the vent louver for outside exhaust if it wasn't left with the unit when it was installed.

We have a Kenmore builin icrowave with exhaust hood over the range. The exhaust fan appears to recirculate the air into the kitchen and not sending it out. This causes the cooking smell to remain inside...


some fans have a charcoal filter that needs replacing others are supposed to be vented out side by the roof or out the wall to see if the vent is going outside you will have to unmount the unit tak it down and check and see if it is conected to a duct in the celing or through the wall hope this helps

The microwave doesn't seem to be bringing the air up into the vent for exhaustion outside. It's brand new.


I presume that you can hear the fan running? If so, most over the cook top microwaves have an option to vent to the outside or simply recycle through the filter and vents above the unit. If you check your manual there should be instructions on how to change this configuration to suit your situation, but it likely needs to be done before you install the microwave.

The above manual shows how to reconfigure the microwave from recirculation (as shipped) to external exhaust setup on pages 4 - 5.

Yes. There is an installation manual available for this model listed at managemylife.com. Just type in the model number under the "Manuals" link and the installation manual is available in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE. Ductwork installation instructions for outside rear exhaust and outside top exhaust are listed. I hope this helps you.

Can i install an external blower outside to boost


Possibly so.

I'd first check to be sure the grease filter is clean, the duct work is not clogged, and the outside vent is not home to an animal's nest.

I had the exhaust switched from inside to outside venting, but there is no air intake. What do I need to check?


Check to see if the damper is stuck, either on the exterior vent outside the house or at the microwave. Also, did the blower get turned to point at the desired exaust direction. Unfortunately, both interior possibilities will require removing the microwave.

Oven is installed not outside vented. There is


It could be that the filter elements are clogged and need to be cleaned. Remove then from the underside of the micro hood and clean them using a good quality cleaner, such as Simple Green. Clean and allow to air dry before reinstalling.

While the filter elements are out, you can check for obstructions and run the fan to see if it is better without the filters installed.

If there is no noticeable increase in the air flow, it is possible that the exhaust vent baffle was not installed correctly, when the mircrowave was first installed.

Hope you found this Very Helpful and best regards!

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,

Exhaust fan


The fan pulls from the range top and either out those vents on top unless there is a vent in your upper cupboard. Then it is vented outside. Hope this helps.
