You are wanting the clearance from the top of the range top?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 10 months ago

There is no set rule from the manufacturer but they recommend 30" from the range top to the top of the microwave. Any more will cause poor venting and much less will cause an issue with the overheating when using the range top. There may be city code that you have to meet but that will vary between municipalities.

If you would be so kind, would you please remember to rate my service at the top or the bottom of the page before you leave today? If you don't, I receive no credit for my work.
