Columbus 320rs microwave vent

Would someone please tell me what I am doing wrong? We hve a new 320rs and have just begun to explore all of the features. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to open the outside microwave vent. I failed to have them show me during the PDI and I have pushed and pulled the two small tabs on the vent with no success in opening the vent. What's the secret? Thanks.

There tight !
I had to use a small pliers first time I moved mine and after that they loosened up.
Are you sure it's an exhaust for your microwave ? Or is it for the range top exhaust ?

It is the outside wall vent connected to the microwave directly over the range top. I assume it vents the range top with the exhaust fan built into the microwave. The intakes are on the bottom of the microwave. Thanks

Its very tight. I have to push extremely hard upwards and out on the tabs to get them to pop loose. They are also difficult to latch shut having to push up very hard and pushing in towards the trailer. I'm hoping it will loosen up the more we use it.

Thanks, I at least now know in which direction to push the tabs. Wish me luck.

I don't remember seeing a vent for my microwave. On mine there is one near the bottom of my fridge, and one near the top of the fridge!! But I do not know what tabs that were mentioned.

Its the vent for the microwave / hood vent. Took me a min or two in order to find mine the first time I was looking for it. with the cover they have over it, you really have to look in there to see the tabs

Is it for the exhaust vent built into the microwave? Or should we open this to use the microwave also? Haven't opened mine as I didn't even know it needed opening.
