Note: Dacor PMOR and PCOR Over The Range Microwaves can be vented to the outside or recirculated. It is always recommended to vent to the outside when possible. Each microwave features a 300 CFM blower. A unique installation can increase the CFM of the microwave to 600 by disabling the built-in motor and installing the Dacor In-Line ILB8 600CFM Remote Blower. This unit must be installed with the wall-mounted accessory switch, available from Dacor (part ARSC). To operate the blower the customer must turn on the remote wall-mounted switch. This is an excellent installation for those who require more CFM but are limited on space in their kitchen.
