24" Over The Range Microwave


Hey guys. I am working on a kitchen remodel that is short on space. I am having a really hard time finding a 24" over the range microwave. Anyone know of a supplier or a model they can recommend? We are looking for stainless steel.

Thanks in advance.

It seems that you may have a European line of cabinetry? Or a small apartment kitchen? This link may help you out: http://www.euro-line-appliances.com/index.html

Sharp makes 24" built in Microwave, most appliance stores can get them, this is the least expensive model I used on one job KB6524PS its a microwave Drawer, most of them that size will be a drawer type microwave... if you find a regular Microwave for on the counter use, you can ask if they have a trim kit available for cabinet installation.

The microwave that you describe is not for "Over the Range" use.
It is a "Built in" type that is not appropriate because the wiring and the cabinet is not insulated and can cause product damage as well as be a fire hazard.

Thanks for correction, I missed <over the range> part... but I'm sure someone makes 24" microwave for over the range use.

What about an RV(recreation vehicle) microwave? I'm not sure what size they are.

That's a good idea. I'm looking at the microwave in my trailer right now. It is a built in, but it is definitely not a 30" so that's a good starting point.

Look at Summit appliances. They are always spec'd when I have weird sized appliances. They are pricey though.
