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.

I purchased this unit from Sears for a major kitchen renovation. I bought it primarily because it had the venting capability of 400 CFM's. After installing it I was dismayed to find that the venting capability is virtually nonexistent. It was so bad that I thought the fan was improperly installed, so I pulled it off the wall to double check it. Unfortunately, it was installed properly so it appears I am now saddled with an exhaust fan that doesn't suck. If you use the front burners on the range, and you have the fan on as high as it will go, steam from the pots rises straight up and blocks your view of the microwave oven. If you use the right rear burner steam floats up and to the right and goes under the cabinets.There is NO exhausting! None, zip, nada! It is apparently just a very poor design.

Above Range Microwave
Comments about Whirlpool Black Microwave Hood Combination:
I just replaced our old Whirlpool stove and above range microwave. They were both 12 years old and we never had a problem with either. That's one reason we went with Whirlpool again - Reliability.The new microwave is Extremely quiet as compared to the old unit. Still getting used to automatic sensor function - more to experience and learn so that food is not overheated.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We had it installed and discovered the fan didn't sound correct. I called Whirlpool and they sent out a Tech, Mark. He confirmed the issue , ordered a new fan, and came back to replace the fan motor. It sounds great and Mark was very nice and helpful!

This microwave makes my kitchen pop. I love the baked potato feature as it cooked my potatos perfect. I'm so glad I bought this microwave as it is very quiet and works great.
from Chalfont pa
We purchased the unit a few weeks ago and are pleased with the performance.
A great buy!
from cortland ohio
This is the best microwave I have ever owned. It's very quiet with lots of options for cooking and reheating food that comes out like it was just cooked.
from Georgetown, TX
Bought this a few months ago, but didn't use it until about a month ago. Works fine, is VERY quiet. As many have said, the alarm that signals completion or timer expiration is not as loud as many other microwaves. However, my wife is hard of hearing and loves it - she can hear the higher pitch tone even though it is much softer than others. We like this microwave very much. Nice looking too; the redesigned Whirlpool emblem is much more attractive than the older one. We also like the nonstick interior surface even though ours had a couple of scratches on the interior.
