can i use a 15 amp kitchen counter circuit to branch off of, to add a new plug in to hook up an 1100 watt otr microwave. we rarely use the 2 plug ins on this circuit. if so , how would i do this? there are black and red wires on the brass sides of both plug ins , as well as 1 white on the lower silver screw of both plug ins.thanks for your help.
I have an existing range hood that consists of an exhaust fan and a lamp. I am replacing it with a new combination range hood and microwave oven. Do I need to install a dedicated circuit for this appliance?
If a receptacle is installed inside a cabinet to supply the new combination range hood and microwave, then it must be on a dedicated circuit that supplies no other outlets. If the existing supply to the range hood complies with this requirement, then it may be reused. If not, a new circuit must be installed. Rule 26-720.
