Question about Microwave Ovens
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.
