Over Microwave Lite on 378

We got real tired of the awful lighting over the counter, so I went to Home Desperate and bought this fixture. It has a dimmer as well. Best mod i ever did.

That really looks nice, That is a great way of getting more light Can you tell me how you did this? Are they one unit or three separate lights? how are the secured to the ceiling? And did you hard wire them in or are they plug in under the cabinet? If you hard wired them how?

Thanks

We added a small LED light in the main ceiling and ran the power from the fantastic vent to the light. Easy mod will post pictures soon. Was done while at the Goshen Rally. Your mod looks great...

Sorry out visiting family for Thanksgiving last few days.
This mod is very easy took about an hour
Purchase lite from home depot they have white or chrome (the chrome matches the micro perfect )
The fixture comes with with a dimmer switch and clear cord with wall plug
Mounting is simple as the trim above the microwave is very solid, two hidden screws for the mounting plate and it's done
Cut the cord so you can run it down through the hole for the microwave plug and reconnect
You will need a multi plug of some sort as there is only one outlet for the microwave
Make sure you install so the cord is to your right and tuck it up and out of the way across the top and into the space beside the microwave.
Aim your lites as needed they swivel tilt and turn
Then bask in glory as your wife hugs you for days
more questions just ask
