Hi guys! It's been a while since I've bothered you, but I have a new question: I just had a guy out for an estimate on adding a 120v receptacle in the cabinet above my stove. The original house had a 2-in-1 range and microwave that worked from the single 240v outlet, so there isn't one in the overhead cabinet as in most houses. Since then, that unit was replaced with a separate range and vent hood, and the vent hood is plugged into the outlet to the left of the range, while my microwave is plugged into the outlet to the right of the range. Both of those outlets are on the same circuit. The guy said that I needed the separate circuit (to the tune over over $800) if I wanted to install an over-the-range microwave, because otherwise I'd be flipping the breaker all the time. I don't have that kind of problem now, even when the microwave and hood are running at the same time. So I don't understand why it would have a problem if a receptacle was added to that circuit... for $500 less. Is the guy just pulling shenanigans, or does just the existence of another outlet add to the circuit load whether anything is plugged in and running? Anyway, the guy was all miffed at having come out for the estimate and I didn't jump right into having work done. But aside from being suspicious, he was humorless and, frankly, creepy. So no outlet yet.
