My Electrolux microwave model E30mh65gps only has on spot to mount it to the cabinet.

Contact your manufacturer or dealer where you purchased the unit. You should be able to purchase mounting brackets to fit almost any design or install situation for safety and liability reasons.

Need installation bracket for kenmore microwave model 80882. Bought as an open box item and no installation or owner's manual or mounting bracket

Most major manufacturers supply manuals online so if you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, Dealer Network for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Can I replace a 1.3 cu ft otr microwave with a 1.5

Brackets can remain the same throughout a particular brand for several years but will also change every year at times. Same year and same brand, I would say yes. Different year of manufacture or different brand name I would say, no it will not fit the existing brackets. If you have a particular brand in mind and have the model number of the existing OTR, it is usually possible to search out installation instructions for both at the manufacturer's website. You could then compare to see if they will match up. The two screws through the upper cabinet floor into thr top of the OTR can vary, within a particular brand even in the same year of manufacturer.

Installation of GE Microwave Oven

We have changed out a GE for another same brand, newer model. You will need two people to make the change-one of the two must be strong enough to support the unit after you remove the 3 bolts that hold it into the cabinet above. You will see these screws in the bottom shelf of the cabinet above your unit. A driver drill w/ the socket attachment to fit these "screws" would make it go faster. You'll need a step stool or a step ladder to get above the unit. There is a power cord that plugs into an outlet-make sure you have unplugged this before starting.While one is supporting the unit, the other is unscrewing the three bolts, When screws are out, the person on the ladder should come down and help w/ the unit removal. The unit is tipped forward to release it from the wall, as it is hooked into a bracket affixed to the wall. When you tip it forward, both of you should be prepared to lift it off the bracket. It helps to have the way cleared and a table or countertop ready on which to set it. BTW, My microwave installer did not use the flange provided to seal the vent around the cutout in the lower shelf of the upper cabinet. Removing ours, I can see why, there is no way to get the unit lined up w/ the flange and the duct and still tip it into the provided cut out. We bought metal sticky duct tape to seal it, and used the opportunity to reseal the above cut outs as well. I think some cabinets are constructed around the microwave installation, and if so, you could use the existing flange set up. When you are ready to put in the new one, do it in reverse, but schedule some clean up time in between, the grease finds a way of eluding all systems and you'll want to 409 it before putting in your new one. If this is too mu8ch for you, ask an installer or a neighbor to help-it doesn't require an electrician. You might want to ok into what GE is doing these days so your aren't dissappointed w/ the new unit after such a successful run with your first purchase.

Kenmore galaxy model 721 microwave hood combination

You put a mounting plate on the wall behind where the unit will be mounted. Then the microwave hooks onto the bottom of the mounting plate and you swing it up to the cabinet above it. Then you must screw 2 mounting screws through the floor of the cabinet above into the bracket on top of the microwave.

There are 3 mounting screws that anchor the microwave to the cabinet above it and a bracket on the wall behind it. Once you remove the mounting screws from the top, pull the oven straight out from the front and it will slide off the wall bracket.
