Microwave circuit

I replaced an old stove/microwave combination with a new stove and overhead microwave. The old unit was fed off a single 240v outlet; ie both the stove and microwave were fed off the same 240v outlet. I need to run a 120v circuit for the new microwave. Can I run the new circuit off the 240v outlet and how?

Microwave circuit

No, you definitely cannot. You must run a new circuit from the panel. You CANNOT have a regular receptacle fed off this 240v range circuit.
