Replacing Electric stove w/ gas stove
 
My question is.... when replacing a electric stove with a gas stove do you have to put in a range hood over the gas stove or can you leave the built in microwave over the stove?

Gas stoves do not need a vent.

Joe is right. Put in a range hood if you want to exhaust cooking fumes (onions, burnt food, etc). No need to vent a gas range (and when the power goes out, like it does here pretty frequently, at least you still have burners to use)!

There's a min' clearence issue between cooktop and m/o. check your m/o install instructions or manf' web site for details. think it's 19" but not sure.
