I need to replace an microwave so I don't have to get into the expense of tile work and new cabinetry. Current measurements are 30 inches, 14 inches deep and because the bottom is angles back it goes from 14 to 16 inches

### I'm trying to convert a over the range frigidaire microwave that is 30" by 15.5" by 15" into cubic feet.

generally speaking you buy and OTR microwave by width, i.e., 30" wide is the standard width of all most all OTR . so any 30' wide microwave will fit. when talking about cubic feet, they usually are talking about the interior capacity of the microwave. but if you really want to know cubic feet of above dimensions, then multiply all three together and divide by 1728. (4.036 cuft)

### Measurements to replace R 1460 over the range microwave

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.

### I want to replace an old microwave from 1988: GE Model# JVM130001. What microwave will fit in that space?

Laura, most any over the range microwave should fit that space. It may hang a little below your height but that should not be a problem.

Your microwave is not vented externally but your replacement microwave will be capable of being used in a non-external vent and an external vent cofiguration. Personally.... I would recommend the external vent installation. Either will work.

Thanks for choosing FixYa, Kelly

### 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.

### #mmv4203dw installation, the old one is out

The new microwave oven dimensions are 29 7/8" wide, with a depth of 15 1/2" and a height of 16 15/16". These measurements are listed on page 3 of your installation manual. If you do not have an installation manual, you can go to managemylife.com and type in the model number you provided under the "Manuals" link. The owner's and installation manuals are both listed in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.

So...to answer your initial question, "Yes", this model microwave oven will fit in the space that your old one previously occupied.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

What I did was get a shorter cabinet and put it in most suppliers have the same models unless handmade.
