Installation

The instruction manual made it easier to install this new microwave. Very understandable, step by step sections that included drawings and pictures. Dimensions were also included as well as the necessary tools required to complete the installation. I was able to double check each step for accuracy and fit this microwave into existing cabinets without having to change any of our cabinets which made the installation more economical and saved us time. It definitely eliminated any possible mistakes and any possible frustrations and potential unknown problems. Thank you

Not a good choice for mounting under 15" cabinets

First and foremost…you need to know that this microwave oven SHOULD NOT be installed under a standard 15” kitchen cabinet without EXTENSIVE modifications. Here’s my story: Thank goodness I decided to install this microwave myself and not have the Home Depot team do the install. Had they done so, I would not have noticed the problem for months, if ever. They would have slapped it in under my 15” cabinet and not even have been aware of the problem themselves. The problem is how the microwave is designed to operate in a “non-vented ductless installation”, which in my experience is most installations (this problem does not exist if you are venting the microwave outside). The outlet for the recirculating airflow is located at the top front edge of the microwave. If you mount this 15” deep microwave under a 15” cabinet, two problems will be present: 1. The recirculating air outlet is trapped under the cabinet and no recirculating will be allowed. 2. The screws that hold that hold the top grill in place, which must be removed to access the charcoal filter, are also located on the top of the microwave, about two inches back front the front edge. So, if you ever want to change the charcoal filter (which Samsung says to do every six months) you will not be able to do so without completely removing the microwave from its installed location. To be fair, I have learned that most microwaves manufactured today are of a similar design with the recirculating vent on top, not on the front, as they were manufactured in the past. I decided to keep this microwave. I installed a 1 3/8” spacer behind the rear mounting plate, which allowed the front edge to extend past my 15” cabinet enough to allow the recirculating vent clearance that allows the air to vent into my kitchen. I permanently removed the screws that allow access to the charcoal filter, since they were still going to be inaccessible under the cabinet. Fortunately, the grill still stays in place without the screws. Two other comments: 1. The light under this microwave is pitifully dim. When I first turned it on, my wife thought it was on the “low” setting. It was not, it was on “high”. In today’s world, everyone uses LEDs. Why did Samsung install a dim incandescent lamp instead of adequately bright LEDs? Bad choice. 2. The User Manual is pathetic. First, it is printed on tissue-paper. Why didn’t Samsung print it in a booklet form as they did for the refrigerator, dishwasher, and oven that I bought? Also, it must have been written by either an intern or a novice. Much of what it states is either wrong or not applicable to my model. And the preset programs on this oven are useless without an explanation of exactly what those preset do. Example: “RH3” is for reheating pasta. But what does that mean? What is the oven doing? How do I know what to do with these presets without knowing what they are programming? Finally, this microwave does a great job reheating my coffee in the morning, which is its primary use in our household.
