Hello! I have a challenge for you guys. Hopefully you can help me out.
My new, old house was built in 1952 and only had one owner. Everything is pretty much original to the house. I'm not sure when the microwave found it's way into the house - but it is OLD SCHOOL. There's an on/off switch that works completely independent of the timer. And opening it won't shut the unit off! Made that mistake the first night - whoops!
So as much as I love antiques, I want to get rid of it. Here's my challenge.
-The cabinet the microwave is hanging under is custom. We're the owners of a genuine St. Charles kitchen, where every cabinet was custom metal. The microwave is mounted under a cabinet with a built in vent. Mounting a shelf for a microwave to sit under is kind of out of the question.
-Being as it's a short cabinet, I'd like to get a microwave that will mount under it.
-The space is just too short for an 'over the range' cabinet. So we need a smaller unit.
-The kitchen remodel is like three years down the road. We can't afford to do anything too wacky.
Essentially I really need to get an updated version of what's hanging there right now. I've been having the hardest time trying to sort this out! Amazon has some under counter mounting kits but the thing is... the model numbers they're all good for have really poor ratings! It's a weird situation, so any help to be offered would be amazing. Thanks in advance. :)
