A 5-speed fan powerfully inhales cooktop steam and odors from the bottom of the unit, where it passes through charcoal and odor filters. Air exhausts out of the top, instead of the front of the unit, like most leading brands.

Exhausts up to 300 CFM using a unique sloped design, creating superior smoke, odor, and grease filtration

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this defective kitchenaid product! Built a brand new house and install what I thought to be upgrade KitchenAid products. This microwave has been a nightmare since day one. For virtually the first two years it was in the service shop. Eventually KitchenAid replaced it but now five years later the second microwave has now failed. Never buy KitchenAid products again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8 years and still going great no issues after 8+ years in service. Touch screen works well. Had my first issue today with the overhead light burning out. That's a pretty good track record.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT buy We purchased this microwave - within the first five years we had the issue of beeping and touch control panel not working; we had the touch panel replaced within the 5 year warranty. It has started to do this again with the new touch panel. Wouldn't shut off without unplugging. We have contacted Kitchen aid and have been told we can not be helped - even though it was repaired during warranty period. The service tech who repaired stated this is a known issue; not sure why this product was not recalled. Not happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Heat? We renovated our kitchen with all new kitchenaid appliances and the microwave stopped working before the year was over and was replaced. The replacement one has now stopped heating. Its turned out to be an expensive clock over the stove. please don't consider buying one of these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Constant Beeping is Unbearable! Our Microwave has beeped for the past 6 months. I see this site has exposed several other customers with the same problem. I'm ready to toss this thing in the garbage. Do not purchase this product. We had a a problem with our dishwasher from Kitchenaid and we got rid of it and purchased a Bosch, which works awesome.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Read This Before You Buy Kitchen Aid Microwave Purchased all new KitchenAid appliances when we remodeled our kitchen in 2008. In recent months the microwave beeps through the night and displays an error message saying the keys are stuck (which they aren’t). The silver paint from the handle has rubbed off and customer service will not send you another one since consumers aren’t allowed to work on microwaves - not that I would personally install it anyway. I’m convinced the fact the microwave sits above a gas range That Th design simply isn’t durable enough. Keys also have not aged well. Cost to “attempt to repair” exceeds value of product. We have a second home at the coast and remodeled that kitchen at roughly the same time with Professional Series Frigidaire Appliances (including microwave) and they look brand new.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn't Heat Food I have this microwave working for 8 years. Recently, it stopped heating after a few seconds. Does it worth to have it repaired?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So Disappointed Like so many other who have posted about this model, I can't believe it has failed so miserably. As a piece of our total KitchenAid renovation 8 years ago, it was a fine for a while. Then over the past few months the incessant beeping, the touch pad couldn't be controlled. Unplugging and replugging did temporary resets for a while, but for the past two weeks it came back to the original "Set the Clock" screen and no touches were recognized. Worse yet, we contacted KitchenAid for a repair call. After 5 minutes in our house, the technician said that parts for repair are no longer available. And he charged me $112.35 for the call. Why would they even come out if parts for this model were not available? I gave a description with the Model Number, serial number and a very detailed explanation of the problem

Rated 1 out of 5 by from F7 error code and now its going to the garbage Had my old microwave for almost 10 years before I upgraded when remodeling my kitchen, this one didn't hardly last 1/4 of that with an F7 error code now, more to repair than its worth. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
Date published: 2017-10-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed We too bought this microwave 8 years ago when we replaced our entire kitchen with Kitchen Aid stainless appliances! It's been working just fine until a few weeks ago when we started experiencing the random beeping others have described. After two weeks of nearly constant beeping, nicely described as a mind of it's own, today none of the buttons work at all. Is this the "normal" life span? Should we even consider repair or just buy new? Not sure I'd purchase another Kitchen Aid.
