How to Install an Over the Range Microwave in a Cabinet

I'm interested in installing an over the range convection microwave, just not over my range.   Is this simply a matter of ventilation and ensuring the button of the microwave has access to air and isn't covered by shelving?

Hi lIghtslider,

You may install an over the range microwave below any cabinet overhanging the counter. However you cannot install it inside a cabinet. These units are not designed to sit on a shelf as they do not have feet and the filters are on the bottom of the unit. If you want to install a microwave inside a cabinet you may purchase a counter top microwave place it in the cabinet and install a trim kit to finish off the opening. You also may purchase a built in microwave unit which installs in the same manner as a conventional wall oven.
