What is the standard height for an over the stove microwave? It seems to me that if I install a microwave over the stove that it will hang to low. Also, how small do theses microwaves come?

Over the stove microwaves are all 30 inches wide. This is to match the size of the stove. Height above depends on the cabinets above the stove. All Micros will come with an install guide. All of them have a safety thermostat installed to turn on exhaust fan if temps over the range get too hot.Therefore height above the range must be considered. It might be possible that cutting the cabinets might be nessassary.

We are buying a new house with the typical hood over stove. I would like to build a shelf here for our microwave. Your post sounded as if there are "special" microwaves for over/stove only? Or can I put a "normal" mw there? Where might I find "how to" directions? Thank you.

A regular microwave on a shelf would block the vent (and light).

Replace the vent with an Over the Range Microwave. The combine the functions of a vent fan with a microwave.

They are avialable at appliance and home improvement stores.

Thank you. That makes sense. Unfortunately for me, we just purchased this microwave. I don't know whether it's worth buying a new one right now. Maybe in the future. Thx again.

I was reading the previous post, and I have a vent above the stove that hasn't worked in years - it isn't even hooked up. Can I still install a regular microwave that I have on the bar anyway?
