Default Min Height between range and Microwave hood?

So we bought a Microwave hood for the electric range.

Looked in the Manual and there does not seem to be a recommended distance
between the top of the range and the bottom of the microwave hood.

Seems like I've seen a few at 17" though wanted to pass it by the Authority


I just bought a smooth top range and this is what mine says:

Note: 24" min. when bottom of wood or
metal cabinet is protected by not less than
1/4" flame retardant millboard covered
with not less than No. 28 MSG sheet steel,
0.015" stainless steel, 0.024" aluminum or
0.020" copper.
30" min. clearance

I would look at your range manual for the installation section. Most
will tell you what a safe situation is.
