My remodeling contractor has installed an overhead microwave. The electrical outlet is no longer in a cabinet above the microwave. He has taken the limited space above the microwave ( about 8 inches of clearance) and has the electrical outlet encased inside with a panel across the top of the microwave.
Is this safe? Certainly not practical in my mind. Should I ever have microwave repair needed, I will have to dismantle his carpentry work to get inside the space to the outlet.
