Using the Microwave's Vent Fan Controls (ME16K3000)

The vent fan removes steam and other vapors from range top cooking. The Vent Fan protects the microwave from excess heat rising from the cooktop below it. It automatically turns on if it senses too much heat. You can manually select the vent setting.

If you have turned the fan on, you may find that you cannot turn it off. The fan will automatically turn off when the internal parts are cool. It may stay on for 30 minutes or more after the cooktop and microwave controls are turned off.

  1. Press Vent 2 Speed to set the speed level to Lo.



  2. Press Vent 2 Speed again to set the speed level to Hi.



  3. Press Vent On/Off to turn the vent off.
