We are looking to buy some whirlpool appliances. Of course I want them all to match. This includes the range. I am wanting a microwave range hood ( just have a regular range right now). Well anyway we are getting them at ***** and I asked the man about us installing it and he said make sure there is 14' from the top of stove to the bottom of the microwave. Also said would not work if the pipe was round, had to be rectangular. Ours is round. Can't I buy an adapter or somthing? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Looks like we are going to half to cut into the cupboard to make this work.

** said would not work if the pipe was round, had to be rectangular. **

Check the installation instructions for the model of product you're interested in buying. They are often available on-line at most manufacturers' web sites.

** said make sure there is 14' from the top of stove to the bottom of the microwave. **

I think that's 14" but check the product's installation instructions as they should state the requirements for that model.

They do have an adapter ... you can get them at the big home stores for a few dollars. They are about 10 inches tall so you will need at least that much from the top of the mircowave to the bottom of the first turn in the round pipe. If you are handy that can be shortend a bit. Another option if the adapter is too tall is to try a few air conditioning places that MAKE the metal ducts ... they can probably fabricate something for you.

One more thing ...

The normal mounting height should be no more than 32 inches from the bottom of the microwave to the top of the stove and no LESS than 24 inches.

Check the instructions for your microwave to be sure they follow the norm.
