The carbon monoxide detector beeps when I run the microwave.
The detector is 30 feet away, around a corner, 18 inches from the floor. Only seems to do it when running the microwave at full power. The microwave is a 1200 watt Panasonic with the inverter system. The problem just started about a week ago. We've had the microwave for 7-8 years, the CO detector is about 2-3 years old.

Almost all over the range micros are 30 inches wide. They did make a few 36 inch models but most are 30. Top to bottom back measurement can be between 16 to 18 inches. Most makes are similar in size. Back wall mounting plate will have to be exchanged since each company has a slightly different design but the wall plate comes with the new unit along with mounting hardware.
Determining the cubic feet of any given appliance, Microwave, Oven, Freezer or Refrigerator is quite simple.
Follow these steps.
Open the door of your microwave and measure the length, width and height in inches of the interior cavity.
Multiply the length by the width by the height using a calculator to get the total in cubic inches.
Divide the cubic inches by 1,728, which is the volume of a cubic foot. The resulting number will be your microwave's measurement in cubic feet. You can also use an online conversion calculator to simplify matters
This can be two things that I know of 1 is a timer defect and the other is someone has placed some type of metal ie utensil, foil, can whatever into the microwave - either way you should replace the microwave and its a fire hazard to your home and others around you and the cost of a new unit is not worth the losses a fire can bring.
Here's an easy way to calculate your cubic feet: measure and multiply (in inches) the width X depth X height, then divide by 1728. This will give you cubic feet. For example, if a microwave measured 18" wide X 18" deep X 12" high, it would be 3888 cubic inches; divided by 1728 (cubic inches in one cubic foot) = 2.25 cu.ft. Best regards, --W/D--

So are you saying that the vent hole doesn't line up with the microwave vent hole? I had a similar problem, it didn't matter since most of the new over the stove microwaves can vent back into the house as an option.
make sure you loads are balanced, put heaviest clothes in first... if you can rock it by hand then the legs are not adjusted properly. If you stand 2 feet away from front of machine, jump up and down and see it move the floor is soft and you need 2 sheets of plywood to make 1 1/2 inches put under the machine
