Built-in Ovens A built-in microwave can be paired with a wall oven. Built-in microwaves are usually paired with a conventional oven in a 24-inch “oven column” or installed in a 24-inch base cabinet.
Built-in and countertop microwaves function only as a microwave, while over-the-range models double as a hood vent for kitchen stoves. Each configuration offers different advantages based on your kitchen and cooking style, and understanding these advantages can help you find the right option for your home.
Over-the-range microwaves Widths will usually be roughly 30″ to match the standard width of the range below and the standard cabinet width where the microwave will be mounted. Most over-the-range microwaves are roughly 17″ tall. Closed door depths can range from 15″ to 18″.
Home Depot microwave installation cost Over-the-range microwave installation from Home Depot costs $100 for replacements. Replacing an old range hood with an over-the-range microwave costs $400. Hauling away and disposing of the old microwave costs $25. Delivery costs $60* or is free with purchases over $400.
Widths can range from about 21 to 25 inches. If you’re installing in cabinets, a trim kit will usually bring the width to 27 or 30 inches.
Do not install within a closed cabinet or a cut-out space where the bottom is covered. These can be installed under a cabinet, even if there is not a cooking surface underneath the appliance. However, the height clearances outlined in the Installation Instructions must still be met.
Even a powerful OTR microwave won’t clean the air efficiently enough. They generally max out at around 300 to 400 CFM. So, the most effective option will always be a vent hood.
The short answer to their question is, yes, you can replace a range hood with an over-the-range microwave.
