I would consult the owner's manual or installation manual on this. It will show you how to do either way.

If the motor is powerful, it should take all smoke outside. You need to find our why smoke is staying in, or getting back in. Is it going out one vent and back in the other? On the outside of the wall the vent should have a flue or pipe fitted, if not it can be affected by wind passing the vent.

How to vent exhaust outside


bea12bfe-3a65-4764-8544-5bc63391c2dc.jpg9dbdeaa6-0b81-4926-ab21-2206dc8f6420.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.

Emerson microwave mwg9115sl over heats then turns back on after 20 minutes


Your magnetron is overheating, which can be caused by:


  • operating oven without cover(s) in place
  • wrong magnetron installed in oven
  • an old or otherwise failing magnetron
  • cracked magnetron magnet
  • improper power line voltage (should be 110-125VAC)
  • foods low in moisture (popcorn & bacon, e.g. - add 1/2 cup of water in rear oven)
  • failed or inoperable cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan
  • deteriorating foam weatherstripping seals in air ducts or on outside cover
  • blocked air vents (dust, animal nest debris, insufficient free air space behind & around oven, etc.)
  • clogged or greasy charcoal filter or grease filter
  • blocked duct in hood vent exhaust

The first suspects in my book are fan failure, blocked vents, or bad magnetron.

Can the lg lmv2083st microwave be vented to an outside vent? not clear from the installation manual.


On page 8 of the installation manual I found, it shows that the oven can be vented to the outside. You can view it at this link:

http://www.managemyhome.com/mmh/lis_pdf/INSTL/L0707162.pdf

If the link does not work, you can go to managemyhome.com and type in your model number under the "Manuals" link.

In the manual it describes three methods of venting: Room, Roof, and Wall. It also gives guidance on how to properly install the duct work.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

JVM1790 Microwave GE-Draws air from bottom and top vents


1. You have to have exhaust pipe to connect m/w vent and this pipe has to be free from obstruction.
2. If it already connected and good, but air come from vent bar over door, then blow motor on top of the m/w was installed in wrong position ( motor has 2 -3 position depends which way air coming out up, back or front).
3. In this case you have to remove m/w from installation and change motor position.

No Exterior vent for fumes


Hello kbender,
I am absilutely certain that the reason it vents inside is because it is more difficult to vent it outside.. ( which means it costs the builder more to do that) but to answer your question.. Yes, all spacemaker micros can be vented out the wall but you will have to remove it from where it is mounted and rotate the blower assembly so it vents out the back, place a blank off plate over the open area where it used to vent ( it may be there and needs to be repositioned when you rotate the blower) , then create a vent hole that lines up with the exit point of that micro.. and attach duct work to bring it outside ( depending on your siding , will dictate how that gets mounted externally and you may run into a problem witha stud on the outside wall ( a bearing wall) that wil need to be cut..I've installed many of these to outside vents and it is a lot of work.. so you may want to consider your options. If you hire someone, that's the easiest solution. You may also want to check to make sure your condo committee ( if you have one) will not have a problem with that.. or you may be able to get a group discount if you hire someone to do mulitple units..
Hope that helps..
Regards,
Rick

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,

How does the vent work?


Under cabinet microwaves generally have two configurations for venting.
1) There is a vent cover plate on the top or rear (sometimes both) of the unit that can be removed and connected to a duct that vents up to the roof. If you do not have such a duct installed then that cover plate should be left on the unit so that it vents in configuration 2.
2) With the external venting ports sealed with the cover plate(s) the microwave simple draws air from the bottom (usually through 1 or 2 grease capture screens) and vents it out thought the front/top of the unit. This configuration isn't very useful as it just blows the air back into the kitchen. Many people don't both using the microwaves blower in this configuration.
