First I'll say I haven't used each function yet, but I am very impressed overall so far. The person before me states the light level is poor, but I do not agree. The light level is what I need and I have no complaints. I think sometimes kitchens are set up in that there isn't sufficient lighting to begin with. Why would you expect a microwave light to compensate for that? When the microwave is operating it is quiet. I am impressed with the fan, quiet and appears to be strong. I was concerned about the heat coming off my gas range but so far the auto sensor fan has not come on, so now I just wait and see if it does when I have more than two of my large burners on. The interior is sleek and nice to see instead of the standard white. I spent considerable time researching what is out there to replace my GE that died after almost 11 years, and found this one had all the features and style I was looking for.

Microwave is performing well overall. Controls are easy to use even with LOTS of options. Interior is, so far, really non-stick and easy to clean. Exhaust fan exhibits some notable air flow noise, but has a better draw than my previous experience with similar units. Now the other half of the story... Upon installation found bracket that supports rear of unit was barely sufficient; one end of bracket bent under the load during installation. Rather than trust a questionable bracket, I swapped it with the remounted Maytag bracket (also a Whirlpool product) that it was supposed to be replacing. Upon turning on the surface range light, it blew almost instantly - disappointing but OK, minor. When I went to replace the bulb discovered that during assembly, someone had stabilized the light bracket with a large glob of silicone caulk (see photo) that also caulked in the bulb (likely damaging it as well). Caulk was carefully removed with a razor knife, bulb replaced, and all are now working well. Could only recommend this product line with reservations given anomalies observed and overcome during installation. Whirlpool reputation could benefit from some better Quality Assurance during design and assembly... Not everyone is willing to improvise as such on a new purchase.

Replacement Installation idea
Comments about Whirlpool Black Microwave Hood Combination:
We replaced our 21 yr old over the range Whirlpool microwave that stopped working with this similar 2.0 cu ft Whirlpool. We were happy with the old one and after doing some research on the installation process it looked like there was minimal work that needed to be done. The back splash wall under the microwave is tiled and we were hoping that we wouldn't have to make a major project out of replacing it by having to remove any of the existing tile. So for the installation we removed the full wall bracket that the old Whirlpool was supported on, turned it around and bolted the smaller bracket that came with this microwave to the bottom of the full wall bracket, then we securely attached that converted wall bracket to the wall in the specified area. With the depth of the full wall bracket being approx. 1/4" the smaller bracket attached to it hangs directly over the top of the tile so we did not have to remove any existing tiles or drill any additional holes. We did however have to drill different holes in the above cabinet since this microwave is larger and sits further out from the cabinets. As for the microwave itself it has only been a week but we see nothing negative to report. It looks great, sturdy made (better then our older one) and though we have never been the type to use the pre-set options we have used a couple and we like them. If we happen to find one that we don't like well then we simply won't use it. The inside surface wipes off easily and the operating buttons are easy to push and easy to wipe clean. The clock light could be brighter as others have reported but we can live with that.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very nice microwave
from Waconia, MN
We have had the microwave for 2 weeks and have no real complaints. The only note we would make is how hard the door opens and shuts, but that is just something we need to get used to.
working very good so far, only had it for a week.

I love my new Whirlpool Microwave--It's a keeper

We have built two new homes and have always insisted on all Whirlpool appliances. We have used Whirlpool for over 40 years. I would say this speaks well for Whirlpool and they are the top of the line in efficiency, service, and,quality. All of their appliances are long lasting and this means not having to replace often.
A lot of cooking features to choose from.
