Re: I have a microwave oven that I need to take out.
These are mounted thru the cabinet above. there should be two bolts which you need to remove in the cabinet abobe. remove these while you have help holding the unit. it will not drop but is kind of hinged on the wall (a lip sits on a bracket on the wall) After removing the two bolts tip the unit forward and lift off the bracket on the back wall.Don't forget to unplug it and pull cord thru cabinet as well Good luck...

1. Open the oven door and remove the 2 screws at the side of the inner glass window 11cm above the hinges and lift off the door. Place it somewhere safe! 2. Remove the 4 screws that you can see nearest to the left and right edges of the oven with the door removed. These secure the oven to the kitchen unit. 3. Slide the oven forwards about 20cm out of the unit, being careful not to pull on the cable. 4. Each hinge is held in place by 2 screws at the side of the unit now exposed, about 18cm apart. Remove them and slide out the hinges. Reassembly is the reverse of the above. 5. Note that the hinges have no means of adjustment. If not working properly, renew them.
why would you want to power a microwave off of a stove if its NOT part of the stove package... you should ALWAYS use a dedicated outleti.e. its only appliance on that circuit breaker,don't load down other circuits with heavy current drawing appliances like microwaves,refrigerators,etc. its hard on the breaker and your appliances don't operate as effectively at reduced voltages either from loading the circuit past its ampacity
A copy of the installation instructions for your units should contain how far it should be.Try to study it. You'll likely find that the over the range units will fit the standard 30" cabinet and also provide the required clearance to the range top.
Consider the following:- power source (dedicated circuit, with an outlet box in the cabinet above).
Venting (outside ot inside), and attaching method.
Though they're simple in concept to install, it's a bit awkward in reality.
The main thing you need to determine is sufficient space between the MW and the stove.
You will have to check, but I believe you need 18" beneath the microwave.
Many companies have brackets for that purpose.
I have an O'Keefe & Merritt double oven gas stove. The model
number is 72 7242 23. The upper oven is about the size of a large
microwave and sits above the range burners. The lower (full-size)
oven is below the burner unit and includes a broiler draw below it.
So, when you say, double oven, I wonder if you are just talking about
the main oven with broiler drawer (both of which are below the burner
Mine was a builder-supplied appliance in the new house we purchased in
1986. The upper oven has never performed very well. And,
yes the upper oven can only be used for baking.
I have an instruction manual for it, but it doesn't provide that much
information. Getting parts for it is extremely difficult, since
Tappan is no longer manufacturing this brand. (I've been trying
to locate a flat oven ignitor for the upper oven and can't seem to find
a replacement that's the same 6-1/3" length.) In the 1980s Tappan
apparently purchased O'Keefe & Merritt and marketed this brand for
several years. Models originally manufactured by O'Keefe
& Merritt in the 1930s-1950s are considered collectible antique
Please call KitchenAid/Whirlpool directly and ask to speak to the 'executive management team'
I had this fault for the second time and this time I spoke to the Exec Management team who said they were unaware of this as a common fault. My stove was ‘fixed’ free of charge – the fuse was replaced, again.
Please everyone who has had or is having this problem call again – this problem needs to be fixed, replacing the fuse each time or not using the self clean function is NOT a fix.
