Why is my microwave vent making noise?

I have a Kenmore microwave model number 721.80524500. The vent above the microwave has metal on metal banging and is very annoying. Is this a design problem or was it not installed properly?

From what you are describing it sounds like the venting is not installed correctly. There are several ways the vent has to be set-up & if one step was not followed right, the air flow out of the exhaust duct could be what is causing the metal banging noise. Outside wind could also cause the metal noise if the damper is not installed correctly. I would recommend having the installation checked.
