Microwave OTR Install - Outlet Issues
Hello, I am planning to install my GE Adora OTR microwave.
I just replaced the 18" cabinet with a 12" to provide adequate space between the top of the range and the bottom of the microwave.
Next I have to place an electrical outlet (receptacle) in the cabinet immediately above the intended location of the microwave.
As the attached picture shows, there is already an electrical wire available - this was from the hood that used to be there.
I guess this involves placing an outlet into the cabinet and extending the existing wire there.
Is it advisable I take this job on myself ? I have installed wall outlets before -- but I have not handled the job of extending the wire behind the wall.
Any other cautions / issues to be aware of as I plan to do this work?
