1.5 Cu. ft, 1000 watts
Please let me know how many amps it takes to install this over-the-range microwave with exterior/interior ventilation exhaust (fan).
Or-- Watts = Volts multiplied by the Amps
Your MW we know is 1000 watts. House voltage average 120, so ...
1000=120 x Amps--- isolate the amperage(divide each side by 120) and we get...
Amps = 8.3
If you add a light say 60 watt bulb redp equation with 1060 for wattage.
Hope this helps....

Do not do above Read post from bill in follow up to this post.
Do not install a 30 amp circuit. That would require a 30 amp receptacle and no residential microwave that I have seen comes with a 30 amp 120 plug.
Changing it or installing on a circuit other than speced in the manufactures instructions would void the warantee.
If the run is long you want need to upsize the wire because of voltage drop, but that does not make it a 30 amp circuit.
The only "standard 30 amp household circuits" are either 240 for electric water heaters or 120/240 for use with dryers and maybe some builtin ovens.
