    I still have no idea what the OP is calling a microwave. They stated its not an oven and its not a hood.

    Yes , several code sections point to the same requirement.
    Individual branch circuit.

    OP has not been back, I bet he gets it.

    (4) Range Hoods. Range hoods shall be permitted to be
    cord-and-plug-connected with a flexible cord identified as
    suitable for use on range hoods in the installation instruc-
    tions of the appliance manufacturer, where all of the fol-
    lowing conditions are met:
    (1) The flexible cord is terminated with a grounding-type
    attachment plug.
    Exception: A listed range hood distinctly marked to iden-
    tify it as protected by a system of double insulation, or its
    equivalent, shall not be required to be terminated with a
    grounding-type attachment plug.
    (2) The length of the cord is not less than 450 mm (18 in.)
    and not over 900 mm (36 in.).
    (3) Receptacles are located to avoid physical damage to the
    flexible cord.
    (4) The receptacle is accessible.
    (5) The receptacle is supplied by an individual branch
    circuit.

    Need to have some type of hood over a range. If gas it needs to exhausted to the outside. Not a NEC thing but a Building code thing.
    Why would one install a range and no hood or downdraft

    Again if it is built in it needs a dedicated circuit. If on a shelf free standing then no.

    I suppose it's possible that the range has a downdraft. Would that suffice?

    The issue really is the what the manufacture says and also if its rated over 50% of the branch circuit. How many code sections does one need to say " separate or dedicated circuit "

    There is no way around it unless its a free standing unit.

    Over the range microwaves usually are a hood unit as well, don't recall ever seeing one that wasn't. I guess you could have a regular micro on a shelf above the range, above a standalone hood or no hood at all.....

    You need also follow the mfg instructions. Most I have seen require a separate circuit.
    A 1000w Micro has a input of about 1500w

    Look at 220.23

    Over the range like in dewelling unit kitchen. Where in code it says all that?
