Is "Over The Range" perhaps just a marketing gimmick used on one company? I'm not familiar with that term. Are they several manufacturers offering that feature or just one?

Over the range microwaves have a built in vent fan (for the cooktop/range below) and light in the base of the unit.
Many manufactuers offer counter top, in counter, and over the range units, however most are 30" if they are over the range type.

These are 24". Might still be too big.

Thanks for finding these. Sadly they are all too wide and too high requiring major cabinet modifications.

I have repaired two microwaves over the years by replacing the fusible link inside the cabinet. They look like a standard fuse but instead of glass looked like a grey ceramic material. They were a cheap fix.

Apollo is sending me a new fuse, monitor switch, and door switches. Apollo rep is thinking this will fix the microwave. I'm getting an appliance repairman that is used to working on microwave ovens to attempt to repair it using the parts sent by Apollo. will update....

UPDATE ON DEAD APPOLLO MICROWAVE:
This microwave has been able to be repaired. Called an appliance repair company in Flagstaff Arizona, a technician came out and quickly repaired the microwave without even having to remove it from the cabinet. He changed several microswitches and a fuse and all is working fine. Apollo did send me some spare parts and I will hold on to them for the future. All is well for now.

That's great news, especially the part of not having to pull it out of the cabinet.
