Location Requirements

The microwave oven may be installed over a built-in oven. If
installing over a built-in oven, make sure there is a minimum of 3"
(7.6 cm) between the top of the lower oven cutout and the
microwave oven cutout floor.
The microwave oven may also be installed in a cabinet by itself
(without a built-in oven below). For best usability, we recommend
a minimum distance of 36" (91.4 cm) from the floor to the cutout
floor.
Make sure the surrounding cabinetry has clearance to open and
close freely. Allow a clearance of at least 1
cutout floor (3" [7.6 cm] for installation above a built-in oven), and
a clearance of at least 2" (5.1 cm) above the cutout opening.
