You missed something while reading the installation directions but that won't fix it. since you already drilled holes in the wall lower the mount down as needed then drill new holes in the mount to match the holes you drilled in the wall. The problem would have been worse if you were off left or right... up and down is easier. Remember you maybe just not dropping the microwave low enough to fit in the slot at the bottom of the wall mount before you tilt the micro up.. check it one more time...including the directions before you re-drill
If this oven is hung from a cabinet, then there should be two, or more, large screws holding it to the cabinet. There is probably a bracket on the rear wall as well.
When I take one of these down, I find a cardboard box that's just smaller than the space between the oven and the range. Then, when I loosen the screws, it comes to rest nicely on the box. Most ovens pivot down from the rear mounting bracket.
The new microwave oven dimensions are 29 7/8" wide, with a depth of 15 1/2" and a height of 16 15/16". These measurements are listed on page 3 of your installation manual. If you do not have an installation manual, you can go to managemylife.com and type in the model number you provided under the "Manuals" link. The owner's and installation manuals are both listed in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.
So...to answer your initial question, "Yes", this model microwave oven will fit in the space that your old one previously occupied.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

i had the same trouble, yes i used a solid bolt to hold the microwave bracket in the stud then used the biggest toggle bolts that will fit, also the cabinet will not have to be changed. it works fine, if you had a vent a hood dont forget to hook up the exhaust vent. i figure your old exhaust vent is in the cabinet like mine was
