Microwave oven extension cord?

I want to plug in a strand of rope lights above my cabinets in the kitchen, but the only available plug is where the microwave is plugged in. Is there some kind of plug extender I can use to power both, or is it too dangerous? thanks!

That receptacle is only for the microwave . However , the amps that the lighting would use is probably minimal . You should have two female outlets in the one receptacle so go ahead and try it. The worst case scenario is you pop a circuit breaker and remove the lighting from that plug.

SOURCE: Microwave installation

I'm a kitchen remodeler, and I've seen this problem with Kenmores (so it probably exists with some other brands too. The ones I have seen have the typical bolts through the top, but there's more. The flat mounting plate on the wall has an protruding piece that fits well into the body of the microwave when the unit is slid into place. It has a threaded hole in the end of the extension, and the sheet metal screw or bolt that goes into this is causing your anguish. To access this, you must remove the top front louvers (maybe some other trim plates as well). You'll eventually find the bolt that unscrews with a horizontal screwdriver.

SOURCE: i have a AEG built-in

1st: Dont listen to the so called gurus at FixYa. As the guru there was telling me that the frame was glued to the cabinet. If I would have followed his recommendation Id be buying new cabinets as well as a new mounting frame. FixYa should credit me my fee paid.
The solution: For the built-in cabinet AEG microwave oven, it is required to use the AEG mounting kit. The AEG mounting face frame uses for screws, one at each corner concealed by small black plastic caps that blend in perfectly with the contour of the mounting face frame. If you look closely towards the inside of each corner you'll see a very small slot in the cap that will allow you to put a small flat head screw driver into the slot to work the cap out. Once the four caps are removed use a phillips screw driver to remove the screws that fix the mounting face frame to the cabinet.

How to replace the bulb of a microwave oven


Replacing a Built-in Microwave Oven
  1. Step 1 Locate the cabinet above the built-in microwavemag-glass_10x10.gif oven. Find two screwed-in bolts. Unscrew the bolts while someone holds the microwave steady.
  2. Step 2 Unplug the electrical cord from the cabinet above and snake the wire down the hole towards the microwave oven. Continue having someone hold the microwave steady.
  3. Step 3 Roll microwave to left or right to set it free from the mounting bracket in the back. The microwave oven should now be unlocked from its position and can be removed completely from the area.
  4. Step 4 Install the mounting bracket on the new microwave that was included in the package.
  5. Step 5 Snake the electrical cord of the new microwave through the hole in the above cabinet. Plug in the electrical cord.
  6. Step 6 Lift the microwave and rest it to line up with the existing mounting plate on the wall. Roll it until the microwave is locked in place.
  7. Step 7 Use a screwdriver or electric drill to screw in bolts above cabinet into the microwave mounting bracket. This will keep the microwave securely and tightly in place. Your new microwave is ready to use.

I want to replace oven


If you are wanting to know who to replace the unit then I think I can help. If this unit is above the kitchen range then there should be a cabinet above the oven. You need to look there for 2 bolts that go thru the cabinet floor into the microwave. have someone there to help hold the oven as you take out the bolts and the oven will come down it is also in some cases hanging on a lip on the back of oven so let it down slowly. There should be a plug in the cabinet as well so you will need to unplug it. Installing the new one is the reverse.

Need to replace my power cord. What do i need to remove to get to where it connects?


Well first thing you need to do is open the cabinet doors above the microwave and unplug it wait 15 minutes before you do anything else to allow the Capacitor drain its power. Then you should see 2 screws on cabinet floor above microwave, you might want a second person there to hold the microwave from falling. After screws are out lean the front towards you and lift up on the back as it is sitting on a lip, then set Microwave on a towel on your counter or floor your choice. you then need to remove the screws to the cabinet on both sides and back, you can now replace the cord..... It's not a super difficult job but if you have problems with the weight of the microwave you can always call a professional.

I have bought a whirlpool microwave wmh1163xvs. where does the power cord exit the oven and where should the plug in be located?


Typically the power cord on above the stove microwaves exit from the top of the oven. That way the oven can be mounted to the wall and the power cord can be routed up to an outlet in the cabinet above the microwave.

How do I remove my Hotpoint microwave RVM 44004? Two bolts visible from the cabinet down into the microwave. Removed them with zero result. No other fasteners visible in top or side cabinets.


It is much easier for two people to remove the microhood. If attempting alone, please move the range out so you can get under the micro to support the weight. If the range stays in place, protect the top from damage.
1. make a landing site to the side to protect the floor when putting the micro down after removal.
2. Disconnect the power cord in the cabinet above.
3. loosen the two screws in the bottom front corners of the cabinet above. When removed the front of the micro will drop, be ready for the weight. Busy times, tools in hands microwave coming down in front.
4. tilt the front down. pull the cord out of the upper cabinet.
5. with micro still tilted down in front, lift the back of the unit upward to free it from the wall plate.
6. remove the fasteners in the wall plate and remove.
Congrats, begin celebration.

Is there a 90 degree power cord available


yes, i buy them at home depot, they are a bit rare, 90 degree extenision cords. usually they only carry one type. you can wire it into your microwave, or use as extension cord. this is good for tight spaces, like beside bed or wall.it is also safer rather than pressing on plug to wall.

How to remove maytag microwave over the stove about 10 yr old


There is a considerable amount of weight to lower. It is an easier removal with the range pulled out and moved to the side. If you choose to move the range, be sure to protect the floor. Unplug the microwave. The plug should be in the cabinet above the range. There are two screws in the cabinet above that screw down into the top and support the front. These are the only fasteners that hold the machine directly. An assistant would be nice to have to help with the weight. While supporting the microwave, remove the two screws and slowly lower the front of the microwave pulling the cord out of the cabinet above as you go. Once the cord is free, tilt the machine down in front until the back can be lifted up off the plate that is fastened to the wall.

How to remove a sharp r 1481 over the counter microwave


If you are referring to an over your stove combination microwave/ vent system then they are typically secured thru the cabinet above them. Try opening the cabinet directly over the oven ( you may need a step ladder to see the mounting hardware) and look near the front of that cabinet for two screws on the bottom of that cabinet. These two screws go thru the cabinet and support the front of the microwave oven. You may also see the power cord for that mircrowave oven plugged into a receptacle inside that cabinet. Unplug that cord and then begin unscrewing the two screws. ( it's best if you have a helper work with you).. as you unscrew them, the front of the microwave should begin to drop down a bit. Once the screws are removed, you should be able to lift the back panel up a little bit to free the microwave of the wall mounting bracket. Once that is doen, you will be able to remove the microwave. I am assuming that your microwave does not have any vent pipe secured to it. If it does, then you will need to seperate that from the microwave vent on top ( assuming it is venting thru the top) .. These microwaves can be vented in any of 3 ways, thru the top, outthe back or configured to vent back into the room. In any case, you should see ductwork while removing this from the cabinet. Hope this helps you get the job done...

Gap between cabinet and top of microwave oven


eastlake...only if you think so. Most of these units use a submounting bracket set and then you hook your oven to it. This is a rather nasty installation...I've done several. If it's sturdy, you may just want to put in a filler piece.
