You may need as little as 16" or over 20" depending on several things:

Local fire code if any..

Fan or venting on bottom of microwave. see Manufacturers specs.....

Check to be certain you have a dedicated circuit for this unit . While a range hood may share power most electrical codes will require a dedicated circuit for an OTR microwave as they draw more power.

My turntable on Panasonic NNA883W combi oven has stopped working is it easy to fix it just freely turns with no resistance


Usually underneath the plate is a square or triangular spigot which should fit into the plate recess these are usually plastic but some are ceramic in combi ovens and are prone to breaking.if you can't lift out the spigot from inside oven to inspect...then you may need to gain access the the bottom of microwave.always disconnect appliances from power supply before removal of internal/external parts.

Can't eliminate small gap between cabinet bottom and top of microwave


If the new oven was installed according to its installation instructions, new hardware was used, new holes were drilled (into properly supported wood structure) and the opening matched the specs outlined in the instructions, it should fit.

If not, it seems like that would have been evident as you went along.

I would first retrace my steps along with the instructions, not making any assumptions, and that will probably reveal the error.

I have had my Panasonic Microwave (Model NN-CT857) just over twelve months and but have just noticed that, when the door is fully closed, there is a very small space between the door and microwave 'body',...


There must be a gap between the door frame and the oven cavity for ventilation and mechanical reasons.
The gap will need to be more than 3/8" to allow any appreciable amount of leakage through.
I am sure it is less than that.
If you are concerned, a leakage test would be the answer, from a registered and approved microwave repair centre that is Panasonic recognised.
The door can be made to fit closer by adjusting the door catch inside the body of the microwave. Just slacken the fixing screws and hold the door closed, tighten the catch holder and there you have it. A snug fit.
Hope this helps.

Replace light bulb on the Neff H7871 combined oven and microwave.


The bulb is positioned at the top of the oven, accessible only from the outside. You'll need to pull off the top and bottom trim strips, remove the bottom trim strip locators, remove 2 fixing screws from the left edge of the oven (with door open), and the 2 fixing screws from behind the top trim strip. The oven should then just slide out. You only need to pull it out 6 inches or so to gain access to the bulb cover. You'll need a T20 driver to remove the cover, then the bulb unscrews as it has an SES fitting. Bob

Need to remove this fitted SMEG FME24X Microwave


Hi there,

Thanks for the quick reply. As you said this has been mounted into a recess and surrounded like a picture frame.

I found some screws are very deep inside the recess and it has been obstructed by the grille/frame.

If you have any pics or any illustration, can you please forward it to me.

Thanks

I have a Ge spacesaver model #JVM1350 microwave that I picked up at a sale, and was wondering when installing if the bolts on top go directly thru the cabinet bottom or is there a bracket? Thanks


I assume you also have the wall mount plate with your oven.
That wall mount carries the bulk of the ovens weight and you normally do use the long screws to bring the front of the oven up to the bottom of the cabinet above the unit. Filler blocks made to fit and to the correct thickness ( to fill the gap between the bottom of the cabinet and the top of the oven) are usually made so that the oven 'nests' snuggly to the underside of that cabinet. Without templates to get holes properly lined up.. they aren't that easy to locate the clearance holes in that cabinet. You can get user manual and installation details at this GE website..

Gap between cabinet and top of microwave oven


eastlake...only if you think so. Most of these units use a submounting bracket set and then you hook your oven to it. This is a rather nasty installation...I've done several. If it's sturdy, you may just want to put in a filler piece.
