Instalation Instructions for Frigidaire Over the Range Microwave 850 Watt Model #FMT118EPB


HI,

Frigidaire makes several over-the-range microwave models that are all installed in the same manner. To install correctly, you must have at least 45 1/2 inches from the bottom of the top cabinet to the cooking surface of the stove to provide enough clearance for the microwave. The top cabinet must also be at least 30 inches wide and 12 inches deep. Find someone to help you, then follow the steps below to install your Frigidaire microwave.

Things You'll Need:
  • Stud finder or hammer
  • Screwdriver
  • Drill
Instructions

Pull your range away from the wall so you can work comfortably. If this is not possible, cover it with a drop cloth. Find and mark the locations of the studs in the wall behind the range. They will be either 16 or 24 inches apart.

Follow the instructions on the wall template to mark the location of the mounting bracket and the four anchor holes on the wall and the bottom of the cabinet. Drill the anchor holes. Follow the instructions on the top cabinet template to mark and drill the two holes in the bottom of the cabinet.

Attach the mounting bracket to the wall studs using the six wood screws included with your microwave. Screw the toggle nuts onto the toggle bolts and push one through each of the four drilled holes. Screw each toggle bolt until the nut is snug against the inside of the wall.
Pick up the oven with your helper. Plug the oven into the outlet and slide the oven onto the mounting bracket arms. Push the oven back against the wall. Tighten the two screws on the microwave faceplate to fasten the microwave to the mounting bracket arms.
Attach the louver to the top of the microwave with the three provided screws. Insert the two top cabinet screws and washers from the top cabinet into the microwave and fasten tightly.

Take care.

I have found and provided a link installation instructions for your existing model. The front is held in place by two screws through the cabinet above into the top of the micro and the back is supported by a wall bracket. A new microhood will fit into the space, but will install a little differently. link to instructions:

Jennair JMV8208BCS No instructions in box


Hello. the installation of wall mounting bracket is not too difficult. you will need a drill, some bits, and a scrrewdriver. you will also need an electrical outlet at that spot to plug in the microwave.

Jennair makes a bracket kit for each microwave. Call any jennair dealer, have your model # handy and they will get you the bracket you need, also ask specifically for the instructions.

You'll probably be able to find the part number either from the installation instructions. You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

TRYING TO TAKE MICRO OFF THE WALL AND IT WON'T BUDGE. NEED INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS


There are two phillips head screws holding the unit in from the top and a slotted bracket on the wall or cabinet back. Usually you can remove the screws from the cabinet directly above the unit. Support the microwave from the front while removing the screws. CAUTION ! Use two people! While holding the unit level,lift up underneath the rear of the microwave to release it from the slotted bracket in the back and bring the microwave straight out.

Need installation instructions for otr microwave please


I just pulled my ge spacemaker xl1800 out. The mounting plate installs on the wall and two 4-6 inch bolts go through the cabinet above and into the top-front of the unit. The two top mounting holes are about 8 1/2 in. from the back of the unit and about 1 1/4 in from the side. If you don't have the mounting bracket that comes with the unit, you will have to use a 2x4 or similar to support the back & bottom of the unit.

Need installation instructions for the spacemaker GE microwave oven model JVM164owj01


Here is the link to the installation manual. Cut and paste on the address bar of your browser. http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-40409-1.PDF It is possible to do it by yourself, but its a royal pain in the a**, so have someone available to help you lift it into place and hold it while you get the screws into the cabinet above. You could use sheet rock anchors to put the mounting bracket on the back wall, but I would really suggest getting the mounting screw into wall studs instead, even if you have to drill a hole or two through the mounting bracket.
