The venting options are the same, but it may not line up perfectly due to model enhancements in the new one. However, there is usually enough room to offset or install a transition, if necessary. Can you post a picture of the venting cutout as it is now?

No...unit is still installed

Okay, well I don't think you will have an issue with the venting lining up looking at the microwave dimensions and specs.

Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

They make flexible offset transitions that will usually accommodate most installations but I doubt you will need one.
