Yes, tried running fan. It did help a bit in drawing vapor away from cabinets. But don't think this is viable, permanent solution.
This micro just isn't compatible with my cabinet setup I guess. I'll just take it back and look for one with a vent in front rather than on top. I was hoping to avoid all that hassle, though.
But again, I'm still just floored that I am the only person who has encountered this issue. My cabinetry is pretty standard issue.
And I'm certain I'm not describing the situation well enough. The microwave - although installed per spec and working well otherwise - is blasting my cabinets with steam, removing the stain and warping the wood. Yet when I mention this fact to Lowes, Frigidaire, etc, everyone seems nonplussed - "Yep, that's what they do..."
I just don't get it.
