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.

Over the range microwave
We have only had this for a few weeks now, but overall we are very happy with it. If I could improve on anything, I would ask for a brighter light for inside the microwave, and dual led lights underneath instead of the single incandescent.
Good product for half the price on July 4th deal!
from Hummelstown, PA
Fortunate to get it half the price on July 4th deal and it has been working good so far :)
Hopefully just a lemon
By Not Happy!!!!
Hopefully this is justb a lemon, chose this model as a direct replacement for a model 6 years old that met a demise not of it's own doing. Anyway, after installation, noticed that the vent fan was very noisy on all speeds except the high speed( vibration noise, not air moving noise) also the cooling fan would not come on during microwave cooking mode, and the control panel was loose and clunky-when you would tap buttons ,the whole control panel would "clunk" when tapped. then the nightmare began, the whirlpool contact center was very pleasant, but the repair center assigned to our area never showed, never contacted us as our appt. was for a Saturday 8am - 4pm ,tied up our whole day and never showed. After over an hour of negotiating with the selling retailer, they agreed to replace the unit next Sat. We will see what happens.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

After checking different brand microwaves, i settled on this particular model. Very happy with choice!! Great value for the money.
Works great! That second shelf I could do without.
By J & R
This is very quiet, easy to clean and works great! I don't like that second shelf option---I think it would be better without it.

Whirlpool 2.0 over the range microwave oven
By The handyman homeowner
from Washington, DC
I have always loved Whirlpool products. They are well made and last a long time. I chose Whirlpool to replace my KitchenAid microwave because too many things went wrong with the latter. I was surprised to learn that the fan blades of the KitchenAid were actually plastic. That microwave had some wonderful features, however, especially the placement of the very bright light which lit up the entire cook top surface. So far so good as I get used to the new Whirlpool. Always takes some time getting used to.
