    Hi we just recently moved into a brand new house that is set up to have an above the stove microwave in the kitchen. The electrician put the outlet below the cabinets where the microwave is supposed to go. Can we still put a microwave in that space the way it is?

    How you changed all the outlets to gfci protected , by the looks of that panel they’re not even grounded

    It may be code to have a dedicated line to the microwave but it makes no real sense. That outlet you are pointing to is where most people plug that same microwave into when it is sitting on the counter top. Also it's most likely connected to several other outlets and then to a 15 amp breaker in the box. Why is it that when you take that same microwave and move it from the counter top to the wall you have to run it to a dedicated 20 amp circuit? And why a 20 amp circuit? The average microwave only draws about 12 amps when it's operating.
