Replacing a OTR Microwave that Vents Outside

lydiainfloridaMarch 29, 2012

I'm moving into a house that currently has an OTR Sharp microwave that vents outside (I can see duct above the microwave in the cabinet). I am going to replace the microwave with a stainless steel model but I'd still like the exhaust to be vented outside. Can I use the existing vent set up for my new microwave? If so, do I need to pay attention to where the vent comes out of the microwave on the new model or are they pretty much in the same location? Can I just buy any model of OTR microwave? Or is there going to be some re-duct work needed if the vent is not in the same location on the microwave?

I just bought an outside vent microwave about 6 months ago and no sales person ever asked about vent location so either I was really lucky they matched exactly or the location is standard.

you could look at the online manuals for several models and compare the specs also or go to an appliance storemand inquire
