Rated 5 out of 5 by from sleek design [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] install was straight forward. Microwave works well and looks great. The low profile has allowed plenty of room above the stove while still holding and heating everything in the microwave that we warm up. Fan works great as well

Can I clean the metal grease filters in my dishwasher? Are they dishwasher safe ?

Asked by: user123456789
Hello user123456789, The Grease filters should be cleaned once a month. Use care when cleaning the vent-hood filter. Corrosive cleaning agents, such as lye-based oven cleaners, may damage the filter. No need to put it in the dishwasher, mild cleaning agents like dish soap will do the trick. - Whirlpool Central Advisors.

 Is this kitchen aid over the stove suitable for gas range

Asked by: Pam 69
Hello Pam, thanks for this question. This unit is suitable for gas ranges as long as it is being vented outside, as well as if it is powerful enough to cover the CFM that you need. The minimum CFM a gas range needs for proper ventilation can be calculated by dividing the BTUs by 100. For example, if I have a 4 burner gas range cooktop with 10,000 BTUs per burner, this is 40,000 BTUs/100. This means that a 400 cfm is the minimum fan required. This model is 500 Cubic Feet/Minute (CFM). Hope this answers your question. -Whirlpool Central Advisors.

Where is the vent located - at the back or at the top of this microwave? What is the minimum distance (height) from the top of a gas cooking range to the bottom of this microwave?

Asked by: Sashi G
Hello Sashi G, thanks for your question! You can configure model # YKMLS311HSS for rear or upper venting. Here is a link to the installation guide, which provides more helpful information on pages 3 and 4 for all measurements, including the minimum distance you are looking for: https://homedepot.scene7.com/s7viewers/html5/eCatalogViewer.html?config=Scene7SharedAssets/Universal_HTML5_eCatalog&asset=homedepotcanada/YKMLS311HSS_installation_instruction-pdf.pdf Thanks! - The Whirlpool Central Advisor Team

Model # YKMLS311HSS Store SKU # 1001157778 what is the clearance required from bottom of microwave to top of range? Can this unit be vented outside? If so do we have to specifi this when ordering???

Asked by: Dorothy
The clearance is whatever you mount it at - minimum recommended is 18". We mounted the top at ~70" off the floor, leaving 24" of clearance. And it can either be vented inside or outside the home - you don't need to specify when you order. Instructions will tell you how to do both. We love it for the clearance, but due to its smaller size it does take longer to heat up food then a standard larger above stove microwave.

It came with 2 charcoal filters installed.  They are supposed to be removed if vented and ours is.  I took them out expecting to see grease filters but there were none.  Shouldn’t they have come with the unit?  Quick start quite was also missing.

Asked by: Patty M
Hi , They should be included as you can see on the User and Care guide provided from the KitchenAid website. Thank you, Whirlpool Central Advisors https://www.kitchenaid.ca/content/dam/global/documents/201801/useandcare-w11124886-revb.pd

Is the vent pipe round or rectangular?. Does it vent to the top?. What size is the pipe duct?, 6 inches or 4 inches?.

Asked by: Andy64
Hi Andy, The duct type is rectangular and the Duct Outlet Size (in.)is 3 1/4 x 10. The Duct Direction is Vertical or Horizontal. The venting can be done both exterior or recirculating. A 3¹⁄4" x 10" (8.3 x 25.4 cm) rectangular or 6” (15.2 cm) round vent should be used. Here is the link for the installation instructions manual - https://www.kitchenaid.ca/content/dam/global/documents/201809/installation-instruction w11209522-revC.pdf Hope this helps! Regards, Whirlpool Central Advisors.
