You are correct. If he was truly talking about the microwave fan, there is nothing to be done to it. It cannot be made to blow out the vent. It is not hooked to the vent. Only the range hood is hooked to the vent.

Thanks that helped a lot. I was afraid to force it.

I don't know. I have a outside vent and no air comes out of the vent. When I turn on the range hood air comes out in camper. I have been putting it off dropping the microwave but I will drop it this week and see where the outside vent is at, the hole that goes outside.

Old Coot said it. The wires on the fan were probably hooked up backwards. Don't know your camper but you should be able to pull off a protective metal cover under your hood and switch the wires.

It doesn't take that much to drop microwave. I don't mess with anything electric, I'm a danger to myself as well as others.

I think you are confusing the microwave with the vent hood. Microwave should slide out from it's cabinet while the vent hood drops down after removing just 4 screws. Turn off shore power first then disconnect 12v battery. Drop the vent hood, reconnect the 12v battery and switch on the fan to determine which way the air is blowing. Then check the wall vent hole to determine if a blockage exists. I've seen fans installed backwards, cardboard blocking the vent hole in the wall and exterior wall flapper siliconed shut for unknown reasons. Good luck with your project.

On my microwave you take two screws out from the top and the microwave will tilt down, then you take the microwave off the bracket. My microwave is not hooked up to 12volt power, just 110

He did. Then said he has to turn the motor around because it's blowing backwards.
