Whirlpool Microwave Hood Design Flaw
Whirlpool Micorwave Hood Combination Model MH2155XP-0 - Complaint
This appliance was purchased 10/16/05 from Lowe's. In 2009 the plastic vent (part # 8183852) above the door fell off. Examining it, showed that the plastic had disintegrated around the screws and clips that held it in place. The door has developed 3 cracks around the screws on the right side under the handle. These cracks are all the way through the door in places. The whole door (part # 8204880) will have to be replaced. It will cost $220 for parts only plus service fees. There has been no abuse to the product. It looks like the plastic has lost integrity possibly because of heat, but the appliance is designed to be used over the stove top. Has anyone else had this problem?
