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.

Comments about Whirlpool WMH1163XVB Black Microwave-Range Hood Combination:
I installed this in January 2015 over a new KitchenAid gas range. If you cook anything on the burner that is directly under the micorwave door handle, the handle gets hot enough to blister you. This is the usual installation of a micorwave over a stove, so why did KitchenAid make the handle metal instead of using a material that does not conduct heat?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I can't live without a microwave. When our old one died I was out the door looking for a new one the next day. Not a meal or snack gets made at my house with out passing through the microwave. My new Whirlpool Microwave is everything I wanted and more. A large interior and all the bells and whistles to make my life easier. Love the defrost button and the guide for the right meat casserole etc. Reheat for or meal or a snack, and can't forget the handy 30 second button.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this microwave about a month ago. It came with easy to install instructions, and looks great in my kitchen. This was a replacement microwave and it fit in the space perfectly and I had to do very little as far as the retro fit.
