Question

Is the door on this model reversible?

The configuration of our kitchen would make a left hand hinged OTR microwave very awkward. All the pictures show the handles on the right (hinged on the left). Are they reversable or available with left hand handles (right hand hinges)?

Question

Is the SMH2117S OTR microwave ok to use with a gas range?

I have recently purchased the FX710BGS gas range however when shopping for an OTR microwave the salesperson mentioned only certain microwaves are rated for use with gas ranges. Is the SMH2117S recommended/designed for gas ranges?

Any over the range microwave that is capable of venting to the outside is able to be mounted above a gas range. This is from our home builder expert. The difference is that an OTR microwave MUST be vented outside when mounted over a gas range, where when using an electric stove it can use the standard venting.

Yes you can mount this above a gas range. The bottom of SMH2117 is non-combustible material so there is no probleim for installation.

"Samsung does NOT recommend to use OTR microwave with gas ranges. Period. Does not matter which Samsung OTR model you are looking to install. They said don't use OTR microwave overn with gas range.

Puzzled, as I have seen couple of friends having this kind of combination (ofcouse not same Samsung model gas range/OTR microwave in your question.

Question

total depth

I just ordered the SMH2117S and now I just realized my cabinets are only 12 inches deep. I see the microwave depth is 18.5 inches. Is that the depth including handle or just the unit. I am really scared there will be too much sticking out past the cabinets.

I just measured the unit depth at the future shop. It was just over 16" front to back and roughly 18.5" to the handle. Hope this helps.

Vivian - we just bought this last night and hubby installed today. Our cabinets are only 12 inches deep as well. I asked the salesperson about size, he said that all over-the-range microwaves were pretty much the same. I am not happy with how much farther the microwave sticks out than our last one. It doesn't look great. Now that it is installed, hubby does not want to remove it, so I am stuck with something that really doesn't fit properly. Not sure why this particular microwave is so much deeper than others - doesn't seem to make sense when standard upper cupboards are 12 inches. I'm very disappointed.

Installation (W*H*D) 758.4 x 430.4 x 470.5 mm / 29.9" x 16.9" x 18.5"
Gross (W*H*D) 848 x 493 x 528 mm / 33.4" x 19.4" x 20.8"

They come with a kit and are used to fill up the space between the Oven and the sides of the cabinet..
The answer depends on the side of the cabinet and the size of the oven…the customer would need to clarify this…

Our OTRs can’t be built in, since they need to exhaust air from the bottom to the back or the top, depending on vent positioning

You can vent this unit externally by connecting duct work to the top of the unit .You can vent this unit internally and vent the air back into the room pulling steam away from the range.
