Over the range microwave


My microwave says its approved for 14" over a gas range. That seems awfully tight to me, but that's what it says.

Please post a link for your microwave manual/specs/etc. That doesn't seem possible. The gas flame is ~1600C/2900F.

Wow, 2900 degrees? Really? That's a lot higher than I would have guessed

MCO165UW is the model. It's just a generic model I picked up on black friday.

When I look at the installation manual it shows 33" from top of the range to the top of the microwave. That would be more like 16.5 or 17 inches.

I am pretty sure the mounting bracket said 14", but I'm not going to remove the microwave to double check. Maybe it said 17"?
