Question about KitchenAid KHMS147 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Exhaust fan draws poorly

Very little steam or smoke is pulled up through the filters (which are both clean by the way) but there is plenty of air pushed out at the top/front of the unit. Why is this unit not drawing exhaust through the system?

When turning Fan on (any speed), top vent grille blowing lots of air, but not pulling air underneath


some microwaves vent to the exterior. check outside for a vent. If it is a recirculating model, perhaps the filters are plugged, the vent pathway is blocked (packaging material) or a loose panel at the back so that the exhaust fan air is leaking out somewhere else. I don't know what else it could be unless the fan is loose on the motor shaft and the fan motor is running but the fan blades are not moving air.

How do i get the air vent cover off, so I can clean grease from the top.


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are trying to the air vent cover off your Frigidaire microwave, model# PLMV169DC, so you are able to clean the grease from underneath the top cover. Please follow these instructions:

1. Disconnect power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging.
2. Remove the louver mounting screws.
3. Pull the louver away from the unit.
4. Change the charcoal filter.
5. Carefully push the louver back into place and replace the screws removed in step 2.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

The vent fan does not draw air from stovetop


There is a wire mesh filter and a carbon filter on the under side of the unit. IF they are plugged then it wont draw air. The other issue is this unit has a dual option for installing the fan. One is to vent to the outside and the other is to vent to the inside, if the fan is not installed for the correct usage, you have no airflow either.

Ge spacemakerxl microwave jvm1650 vent is not drawing air


It is possible, you have removed and checked the filters, still the intake is low even without the protective filters. The system will need to be taken apart to find the opstruction, or as you said a hole in the venting mechanism.

For the Jenn-Air Model JMV8208AA The microwave was dealer installed and is room vented. The vent does not pull vapors from the cook top of the oven. Regardless of the venting level used, the pull...


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

Well first of all I would take a piece of paper or newspaper, and put it up by the vents, the paper should be sucked on by the vent.. If it does that you have suction. if it does not hold the paper, you should get a warranty repair, i am assuming this new.

If the unit is install to far above the stove you may have a issue.

But long story short, the room vented units, do not really pull much smoke, they pull better on outside venting. you are just putting smoke/steam back into the room, just a little cleaner.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response. We take the time to answer your question. take the time to rate us.Thanks and good luck

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!

Recirculation fan does not pull in air/steam/smoke


The issue is that the fan on that unit is a reconfigurable fan. If there is a vent, you install the fan one way, if there is no vent pipe to the outside, you install the fan another way. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/294916/Maytag-Mmv4205.html?page=9#manual

Exaust fan has weak suction on maytage mmv4205baw


This is due to poor air flow, either to a blockage or a problem with the internal cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan.

Are the grease filters or charcoal filter clogged?

You may want to check your owner's manual for info on checking the filters. Grease filters can be cleaned, but charcoal filters must be replaced about every 6-12 months.

The installation manual will tel you if there's some error in the installation setup.

You can download Maytag owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
