Kitchen Aid YKHMS 5050 SS need to be vented?


Hello !!! Wondering if someone could help me out here?? We are selling our home and have an over the range microwave/hood fan combo thingamajig ( real technical, I know!) installed and have NEVER had it vented outside ( we replaced the entire kitchen when we moved in) however, now we have an inspector coming in the next few days and I am stressing about whether we ‘have to' have it vented outside? It does have the filters?? We have never had any issue (don’t cook a lot of fatty food) with it, but just want to confirm and not have any reason for them to complain. ( We live in Ontario, Canada if that matters) Thanks !!!

not sure about any code in canada ..but here in our area ...owners choice to vent microwave outside or run through filters...so unless its code violation i would not stress over it ...if the buyer wants it vented he could do it after purchase..or you could offer to pay half as a selling point..imo ben sr

I agree with Ben unless it's code I wouldn't worry about it. All the over the range micro hoods I have seen have 3 ways to run the fan.

When the installation is being performed you can set them up to 1. exhaust out the side wall, 2. Exhaust out the top up through the cabinets to the attic/roof and out. 3. Recirculate through the filters and back to the kitchen.

NOTE: #3 no holes to the exterior of the house.
