How do I change the front exhaust to top exhaust on a Kenmore microwave/hood


In order to change the venting on the microhood you need to uninstall the unit and at the top of the microwave is the blower unit. Remove the cover, flip the blower and you should then see the fins on the motor, reinstall the unit under the cabinet and your good to go. I hope this helps, good luck

I bought new Kitchen Aid microwave with hood combination and followed the instructions to install it. Everything was OK until I came to the Wall Venting Installation, step 4. Lift blower motor out of...

On this model, item #1 is the only part you will need to invert. Lift out and rotate to allow venting to be possible to the wall. In other words, the open part needs to face the back of the microwave. Also if you removed the blower, you will need to re-install it back and correctly. You could have venting issues if not back in the proper location.

I have a kenmore microwave hood combination model 721.80019. The blower unit has recently started squealing when we run the microwave. I am not sure if it is rubbing up against something or not. Is there...


I just found out the same problem with mine.
I think the bearing of the fan motor has problems.
I took it apart and now looking for a used or new fan motor unit.

The blow or fan stop working and the circuit breaker kicks off

It sounds like your exhaust blower has a shorted wire to it or the motor itself is bad. If you have a basic knowlege of electricity, some hand tools and lots of patience you can take the unit down off the wall, remove all the access screws and locate the blower (usually on the top back). Follow the wires from that to the control, look for breaks or tears in the wire, if none found then the blower motor will need replaced.

GE JVM1440 microwave - Fan only works on 'low' speed

Only working on low would probably be either a bad blower motor or a bad main circuit board. I dont remember ever having to replace a blower, but the main board has relays that switch back and forth for what ever speed you are trying to use. Problem is the main board will be quite expensive. May want to look at prices on new units. And remember on a new unit you get full factory warranties on everything.

Changing the venting on my MH2175XSQ

yes FORCE...doct be afraid to break it 'cause you really can't. On mine after frustration I got agressive and found out the little black power wires were "holding it in the unit. A little prying pulling will get the motor unit up and out so you can "roll" it 90 degrees and reinstall screws and job is done.
