Circuit for OTR Microwave
I'll be installing an over the range microwave where there is currently a simple vent hood. I know I need to run a dedicated 20A circuit, no problem there. The confusion is this. The installation instructions show the microwave being plugged into a single 15A recepticle. I thought a 20A circuit required a duplex 15A recepticle or a single 20A recepticle. I intend to use a single recepticle as I have no need for a duplex. The recepticle will be placed in the cabinet above the microwave. Is there an exception for this situation? The microwave has a 15A plug.
