Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
I found a solution for my microwave. Went to Ace and picked up some lag bolts, yellow in color (believe they said it was yellow zinc). Most common seems to be 1/4"-20, but these lag bolts had the smaller thread of 1/4"-28.
I had to go a little shorter in length because the threads don't run the entire length of the bolt. The only downside is that the top of the bolt sticks out inside the cabinet (but only about 3/16"). Well worth it so I didn't have to buy an installation kit that was in the $40-$50 range.

Sounds like you covered the bases, but I think you;'ll need to order them, possibly in an installation kit.

I recently purchased an GE above the oven cooktop oven/microwave and I am concerned with the height of this unit - from the floor. My wife is vertically challenged and I don't want her spill or tilt any of the dishes when removing from the oven.
My question is this - can I simply insert 3' mounting blocks to the bottom of the cabinet shelf and lower the unit? I would replace the existing 1/4" 28" 3 1/4" self aligning screws with longer screws that 6 1/4" in length??? Do they make this type of screw in this size and is this the best way to go??? If so, does any one know where I could purchase them?
