    No I will have to get the carpenter to make new cabinets. It is on a island cabinet.

You will also need to consider space between the stove & microwave, but you could go back to your cabinet company and have them make you a dead panel that matches your cabinets for the face side of the microwave. then you will also need three other pieces 1 for each side and 1 for the back! if you want to drop the microwave down 12 inches have your panels cut 12 inches! have your carpenter block in and attach panels, go to a fastner company with 1 of the bolts that the microwave came with to hang it from the cabnit and find or order bolts the compensate for the depth in which you you have your panels built!

How far out does a microhood sit from the cabinet. My cabinets are 12 inches and the microhood I want is 16 deep. Also it will be 19 inches above my stove.


Don't know right off the top of my head, but the installation instructions should tell the min and max height from the stove. If they don't you may want to contact an electrician to find out.

Remove a whirlpool over the range microwave oven


Jim here. In cabinet above microwave, locate 2 mounting bolts.
Place a box on the stove top to support the microwave once the mounting bolts are removed (you may wish to cover the box with a thick towel or small throw rug).
Procedure:
1. Unplug microwave.
2. Remove both mounting bolts from top of microwave (they secure it to the overhead cabinet).
3. With microwave front angled down onto box, pull some of power cord out of hole (to provide some moving space).
4. With microwave hand supported, remove box from stove top (a second set of hands would be helpful here).
5. HARD PART- detach top of microwave back from wall mounting plate by placing a hand under the bottom rear of the microwave and pushing up. (Wall mounting plate is screwed into the wall behind the microwave and provides both top and bottom support to the back of the microwave.)
6. Lower front of microwave until you can see about a 1-inch clearance between the top-rear of the microwave and the cabinet above it.
7. Firmly lift the microwave straight up and then bring forward. It should be free of the wall mounting plate.

How do I install a replacement Frigidaire over the stovetop microwave - professional series, without removing the cabinet above it? I need to know how to best remove the existing microwave.


Remove everything from the inside of the microwave, (such as glass tray). Unplug the microwave, probably in the cabinet above. There are two screws in the cabinet above the microwave, near the front, that supports the front of the microwave. The back is hooked on a mounting plate attached to the wall behind it. An assistant is a good idea though this can be accomplished alone. It is best to move the stove out, if you are going to try alone. Please be carefl there is considerable weight to support here. Support the front of the microwave while the two screws are removed in the cabinet above. Slowly tilt the front of the unit down until you can pull the cord out of the bottom of the cabinet. With the front still tipped down, lift the back from it's support and remove it.

Presently have a regular hood, would like a microhood. How many inches clearance do I need between the top of the stove to the bottom of the cabinet?


This is a good question to ask at the point of sale. The measurement varies for different models and makes, but 33 - 36 inches is ideal. If you have a 12 or 15 inch tall cabinet above the stove, you are fine. A microhood does require a dedicated electrical circuit. When powewring off the current hood circuit, check to see if any other lights or outlets go off.
