Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist
Can you get the Model number of the oven/microwave combination unit, so that the full specifications can be obtained?
Can you also look at the cable that connects to the breaker or at the oven now and see if you can find any writing on the outside of the cable insulation?
That information should help to determine what the situation is and what needs to be done.
Ok, thanks. Just checked the items
You are not doing the combo unit, but putting in a standard over the range microwave.
Those are 120 volts 20 amps maximum.
You install a receptacle in the cabinet above them and then plug them into the receptacle
It will not connect to your oven cable.
PLUS, the oven is a standard also, you will need the full 50 amps to supply the receptacle in order to plug the oven in.
Dont know what sales person provided the information, but they are very mistaken
Ok, very good. Glad to assist on the situation.
The models helped greatly to clarify the situation, thanks for those
