Mounting bolts firgidaire FMV156DC

I lost 1 of these bolts that mount the unit to the upper cabinet when I renovated my kitchen. Is there a way around buying the whole kit for $50-$60 dollars?

Where I live there is a bolt shop....really. If you can, find such a shop, and take your other bolt with you and 'match 'em up'.

Another possibility is that Lowe's carries speciality bolts. They're in cabinets/drawers in the hardware section, not hanging on the wall. H/Depot probably has a similar arrangement.

Yet another possibility (and I think it's your best shot) is that, if you can match just the threads, you can buy a piece of all-thread (it's just a piece of steel rod, with the threads running the full length of the rod). Thread your nut onto the all-thread just past where you are going to make your cut, and cut with a hack saw. (You run the nut down on the rod so that, after you make your cut, you unscrew the nut over your fresh cut to straighten out the threads deformed by cutting). Total cost for all-thread and nuts......around $5. Use your existing bolt as a pattern for the new bolt, and leave evough extra to accomidate the nut that you'll add in place of the head of the old bolt. Anyone working in any hardware department anywhere on the planet worth their salt can help you.

Best regards, --W/D--

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.

I can't find bolts or screws that hold the unit in place. I need to remove the microwave in order to install new one.


HI there,

Here's HOW;

  1. Remove the face plate above the door.
  2. There were 2 bolts in which you will need a screw driver to loosen it
  3. This bolts go all the way to the back of the microwave.
  4. You still need to remove the one - three screws that's above of the cabinet. You may have to jar it loose if it still stuck.
Hope this helps.

Let me know for further instructions.

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.

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.

How can I install this oven GH9115XE?


You may be looking for this flat head 1/4 x 28 threaded bolt that is about 4" long. The tip of the bolt does not have threads, which aids in locating the threaded holes in the top of the microwave:

GE # WB01X10180 (or AP3205964 or 942461 as listed on some repair parts sites)

or a set of three

GE # WB01X10125 (or AP3185225 or 910236 as listed on some repair parts sites)
