    Hit your local Lowe's or HD and ask about the various types of shelving and/or shelving brackets that are available. Depending upon your skill level, you should be able to find something!

    We replaced our built in GE with another different manufacturer years ago.
    If the size is not exact you can get spacers to retrofit the extra space to complete the built in look.

    check with your manufacturer or appliance sales for the size you need For ypur exusting spot.

    Lastly if needed search for trim kits......”the perfect solution if you would like to make your new built-in microwave fit into a taller cutout. Custom Trim Kits make it possible to install almost any model of built-in microwave, cooktop, or wall oven into an existing opening”

    Inexpensive pipe strapping and a cut to size shelf can be easily attached to underside of a cabinet. Use two lengths of the strapping, attach each about 1/4 distant from front and rear edge of the shelf. Attach each end of the strapping to the underside of the cabinet at a depth to allow space to slide the microwave into place. Good luck.

    We had to replace ours, luckily it was a little bigger and didn't have to do extra painting. Lowes, Sears, Menards, etc. are all good places to find one. Make sure you measure before you look!

    They sell "built-in" microwaves that should be perfect to replace the one that you had. This will help keep things off your counter and fit in with the way your kitchen is set-up.
