Microwave venting

Can I Use An Externally Vented Microwave Without Venting to the outside?

Not smart. It will either have no suction if the vent is properly closed off or if not it will blow grease wherever and cause a health and fire hazard.

Most can be set up to either vent outside or recirculate. Just need to change the way the fan is installed.

Its A Good Life!

yeah, what hvac122 said. all micros can go either way. But you must rotate the blower for recirculation.
