Since we were replacing the refrigerator, range and dishwasher in our 20 yr
old condo, I decided to replace the countertop microwave with a build-in
model that takes the place of the oven hood/light/fan above the range.
Think I may have made a mistake, for I am told that there are now some
additional installation issues that the salesman never told me about........
1) oven hood is "hard wired" to the source of electricity. The new
microwave has an electric plug that will need an outlet to put it into. I
assume that this wouldn't be a "big deal" for an experienced person since
the live wires would have to be directed to a new outlet.
2) I have been told that the electrical code requires a separate circuit
breaker for a built in microwave oven. IS THIS SO???
Anyone venture a guess on what it might cost to have an do the required
work? (The other alternative is to return the new microwave.)
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
Have a great day, except you spammers
