Forum Title: Vent Question OTR - Please Help!
I have tried looking for this and could not find this type of setup. I went to an EXACT model and saw this ventilation setup. Over the range is vented outside, and I am assuming it is going thru the wall between studs up the ceiling between joist to exterior. (2 stories) My house does not have this. And the oven recirculating the air. I have notices the following: I did see an exterior vent cap, and it is in the same place as the home mentioned above. The problem is cabinet back veneer is covering the wall, before I pull that cabinet I wanted to get an opinion here as to the setup in the photo. The reason I am sure I have the duct in place is because the vent cap outside is present on mine, and they are exact model. I am thinking of the following: remove the Microwave, cut bottom of the cabinet to align it to the vent on microwave, switch the fan position to kick air out. ALSO, I think I need to cut the back of the cabinet which I am thinking of going into the wall, NOT SURE. Now I am lost, do you think when I pull the oven out and the pull the cabinet, I will see the vent in place between the studs or do you think I have to cut the drywall? What type of Duct is used which looks like a box, how should I install it.? Size and place to buy? Also, I know everyone hates OTR Microwave, do you think should I buy a standalone or this will work incase it is going thru the studs, if I change it to standalone would that help termendously? PLEASE HELP, I am tired of smell in the house. [IMG][/IMG] Thanks in advance.
