Why can't you use the wall plate? Even if you had to use construction adhesive it would be better than nothing. If you are installing in an island setting then you will have to reinforce the cabinets as they would have to support the weight of the micro.

How do i remove a over the stove microwave?


On a 1-10 scale- this is a 2.
place a cardboard box on the stove to support the microwave once it is free.
Remove power cord from the outlet in the cabinet over the microwave.
In the cabinet over the microwave, locate the 2 mounting screws.
Loosen each one about 6 turns- the microwave should drop down in the front by about 1/2 inch.
Once loose, you can remove both screws completely and allow the front of the oven to rest on the cardboard box.
While supporting the front of the microwave,have a helper remove the cardboard box.
Tricky part...while supporting the front - angled slightly down, lift hard under the rear of the microwave and pull toward you.
Have a helper feed the power cord through the upper cabinet bas as you bring the microwave toward you and slightly down.
Place the microwave on the counter- with a towel in place to prevent scratching the counter.
remove the rear-wall mounted support bracket.
Done

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.

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 have a GE Profile JVM1790 microwave that needs to be installed. However, it will sit in front of a 3/4" thick granite backsplash that I would rather not drill holes through. Would it be safe to mount...


The front weight hangs from the cabinet above the microwave, the rear weight needs support also. It is intended to be fastened to two studs. If the granite does not go all the way up to the cabinet above, install a wood spacer, the same thickness as the granite, then extend the wall plate, at the corners, with some flat stock aluminum strips, available at most hardware stores. Fasten the aluminum strips to to wall plate with short machine screws. - If the granite goes up to the cabinet bottom, shim out the bottom frame of the cabinet to the face of the granite and use the same aluminum flat stock to extend the wall plate up to the necessary location.

Can not remove microwave from wall


There should be screws in the cabinet floor ABOVE the microwave. Unscrew them, they will be long. Make sure you have someone to help you hold the microwave while you unscrew. One all the screws are gone, unplug the microwave and tilt the unit front first down about 45degrees then lift the back of the unit up 1-2 inches. Pull it forward and you should be all set.

Wall mounting needed for a top mount microwave/hood combination Whirlpool Model MH2175SB1. The cabinet above the stove is too flimsy to support the heavy microwave (50-60 pounds). Called Whirlpool. Sent me...


Is there a wall behind where the microwave is to fit?

Most of these ship with a mounting plate and instructions for mounting to the wall. In fact, the wall bracket carries about 1/2 the weight, and the overhead cabinets carry the other half. The plates come with a good set of instructions for how to install.

Whirlpool is sending you to a distributor because they have to watch liability in this litigous world we live in..

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.

Microwave installation under cabinet, no rear wall


Your model weighs 41 pounds empty.

That - plus maybe adding another 8-10 pounds for safety - us what your installation needs to be able to handle.

I would think the average cabinet could handle that, but it may be better to add a small steel plate or large washer surrounding the mounting screws to help disperse the weight load.

The owner's manual describes the installation kit you can use to mount it in a cabinet or in the wall, etc. That may be helpful.

If you don't still have your manual you can download it here.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
