After a remodel, done by contractor, in which I had an over stove microwave put in, I'm finding it's not venting well at all.
Microwave, bought almost 3 yrs ago but never used due to waiting for the remodel.... is a Whirlpool g2 microven model GH178XPS - was close to the top of the Whirlpool line w/ quartz and halogen grilling, touchscreen, etc... seems like it should vent decently.
The Set up is for exterior vent. When items are on rear burners - a lot of the steam/smoke/etc.. is caught but a fair quantity goes on sides of microwave. When front burners are used - almost no steam etc gets vented - instead almost all of it wraps up the fron of microwave drenching it in condensation over entire face - I'm worried this will eventually (it's all new) damage the cherry cabinets above - not to mention damage to ceiling and coat of grease over most everything.
I'm wondering if this is all I can expect from a microwave vrs a specialized vent hood - though I seem to recall seeing this type of microwave setup vent fine elsewhere - not sure though.
When turning fan on high, starting two pots boiling water on the back burners - and it being somewhat cold outside (I'm in south florida... it's not too cold) I can't see any steam at all escaping from roof vent.
Wondering if they might have installed the damper assembly incorrectly.
