I have a problem with my Kitchen Aid microwave range that is 7 years old. when it's windy it makes noises. I look it up on the internet and some people talk about adding a light weight to the damper door to keep it from blowing open. My exhaust vents outside. I was wondering if the damper door might have a adjustment or a spring that might have gone bad that keeps the door close. Do you have any ideas how to fix this problem?

Our microwave has a vent cover (not sure if this is the right term) on top of our unit which is installed under a cabinet. When installed the screws mounting this piece to the microwave broke. It stayed in place until I took it off to clean. I do not see this item on the list of parts for our model. It is made of plastic and has very thin "rails".

Our combo microwave/hood vents directly out the wall to the outside. (Horizontal) It is freezing inside the unit and I feel cold air coming down underneath the hood. There is an exterior wall vent and I think the flap is working, at least I can hear something close when I turn off the fan. From the research I am doing, do I need to replace an internal damper attached to the back of the microwave? what about replacing the exterior wall vent? are there different quality dampers and vents I should consider to ensure a better seal?

Latest Questions

I'm trying to convert from recirculating to outside venting, and need the damper assembly shown in the installation manual. Does this part include both 8205550 Damper Assembly and the Door Damper 4393713?

How can I get a damper plate COVER? NOT the damper plate assembly. 8206442 is an assembly, not a cover.
