My built-in microwave has died. I have been trying to find a replacement - but am having trouble finding the correct size - 2 foot, not the larger (much available) over-the-range size. If I have a trim kit already from my previous microwave, and a vent space already in the area where the microwave goes, am I able to install a counter top model that has a top vent in the area I have for the built-in microwave?
Examine, the Counter top microwave to locate all vents on the two Sides top and back panels. Since a Counter top microwave is designed to rest on counter top, the vents are often placed on the sides , to ensure the vents have a proper air space to clean out dust an expel hot air during the operation .These vents can not be covered in the build in hole, as it may cause the microwave to overheat or malfunction.
