This is because there should be a sufficient distance between the microwave and the ceiling. The acceptable minimum is 20 cm. This advice should not be ignored because it is a basic rule of technical safety. The appliance needs adequate ventilation. Of course, the old "Khrushchev apartments" and most housing stock do not have very high walls, so the height between the floor and the ceiling does not reach three meters.
This is not the only reason, though. Refrigerators are prone to vibrations during the active phase of operation. They have a negative impact on microwave ovens. In fact, it reduces the operational capabilities of internal components.
If you frequently reheat or cook food in the microwave on top of the refrigerator, this can cause the walls to heat up. That is, there is a chance that the compressor will quickly fail.
