Question about Whirlpool 1.6 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave
Hi guys. I picked up a new Kenmore OTR Microwave to install in my kitchen and have a few questions.
1. There is one stud I can use to mount the Microwave to the wall and it's smack in the middle of the cabinets. Will it be ok to use toggle bolts for the corners and one wood screw in the middle to mount the bracket? Will that, along with the two top bolts, be enough to hold it in place?
2. The Microwave is 16 5/8" high and there is 31" of space between the bottom of the cabinet and top of the range. It looks like the Micrwave will hang down about 4" below the bottom of the cabinet. Is this normal or shoudl I look to replace the 17" cabinet on top of the range with a 12" one?
Thanks for the help!
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
