We purchased this as a replacement for an older SHARP model. We are pleased that it is very quiet when running, the vent is much more quiet than the appliance we replaced and we like the look of this microwave very much! The only con is that it sticks out very far and that the vent is on the top. Like the previous review mentioning this issue, there is no fix for this yet. Seems Whirlpool should have designed an after market screen to prevent things from falling into the vent and becoming lodged inside. Also this is very heavy and somewhat tough to install for one person due to its weight and size. Other than that, we're pretty please and would recommend to a friend!

We purchased this model from a different company - either way it is poorly designed and flimsy. The plastic vent cover (above the door) broke near one of the screws when changing the carbon filter because the plastic is very thin in that location. That is poor design because the filter needs to be changed periodically. After about 9 months, the plastic panel on the right (where all the buttons are) started to come loose. When I took it off, I found that it was held on the unit by 4 very thin plastic hooks which all broke. Mind you, it's used by my wife and I (adults), and we haven't abused it. Finally, we were cleaning it the other day (1.5 years since we bought it), and the plastic trim around the door was starting to crack just below the window. I have no idea how that happened, but it's another example of poor design.

Dead after just 6 years
Comments about Whirlpool WMH1163XVB Black Microwave-Range Hood Combination:
part of an "upgraded" appliance package in a new NV home and microwave is dead after just 6 years. Trying to decide whether to attempt to repair it (replace diode and magnetron) or simply buy a new microwave. This is the second costly malfunction of my "upgraded" appliances. My 5 burner whirlpool gold cooktop had to have all of the burner modules replaced as well.Need to consider slowly switching over to another brand as I haven't had much luck with whirlpool standing by their products.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Stopped Working 6 years
from Upstate NY
Bought house with this microwave in 2011, mfg says 4/2010 guess I was hoping that it lasted more than 6 years.was a great, powerful microwave until it just died. :( might look for a different make this time. Read someplace microwaves should last about 9 years. thanks

Need a new one after 5 years
Purchased new in June 2010. Quit heating in Nov. 2015. I've owned other brand microwaves over the years that last much longer. With the exception of the underpowered fan this microwave was satisfactory for warming up leftovers.

Remember when products lasted?
from Staten Island, NY
This is not a 'new' microwave for me, however, its not old either. The lights come on, the dish rotates, but no heat. For the repair cost, i could just buy a new one. I'll try a different brand
Very Happy with my purchase!
from Katy Texas
Great Microwave........Runs quietly,& cleans easily. I even like the two level light. When the kitchen is cleaned and the lights are off, I like the soft light that illuminates the room!
Sleek new microwave!

Bought this about a year ago, very nice microwave the only con is finding the filter and changing it. The manual's have to be down loaded and none of them show you how to replace filter.
from Boston, MA, United States
As the previous poster mentioned, it's good for about 5 years. Ours was new in 2009, and the cpu went on it this week. Don't think we'll buy another Whirlpool...
