Trim kit does not fit
Our previous opening on the older model of Whirlpool built in microwave is too big for the trim kit. In addition, it's difficult to screw in from the bottom panel due to the limited space with a built it oven right below it.

I had to replace my old Kitchenaid microwave, which had its own trim kit. Unfortunately for me, this trim kit is the only suggested trim kit for my microwave. The new trim kit is a couple of inches higher than the old trim kit, and with that it does not fit the cutout in my wall, so now I have to do a little construction work on the cutout. (Since the trims only come in two sizes, why not make them fit in a standard way? Both my old microwave and my new microwave are Kitchenaid, and both the old and new trim kits are 30”.) The opening of the old trim kit does not quite fit the new microwave, as the trim prevents the door from opening, so I cannot use the old trim.
The old trim kit was entirely metal, whereas the new trim is mostly cheap-looking plastic. Unless you’re dead set on having that “built-in” look, i would not recommend this kit. On the other hand, it’s the only one game in town, so Kitchenaid kinda has me over a barrel...

Fits microwave perfectly, quality frame and stylist look. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
