Otr microwave install

There were no instructions with my o-t-r microwave. I am installing under cabinet. Question is: are there only two large bolts anchoring it to top cabinet or do most units also have a back plate?

We have a partial service manual for that model on our site at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/MV1615x_Service_Manual.pdf

It shows an exploded view of the installation on page 8-7 but for some reason the parts list (with part numbers) is missing.

But this page *should" answer your question.

If yours is not a Goldstar MV-1615, please reply back with your brand and model.

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

I removed the bolts for my Danby OTR microwave. Dmw162w-otr. The microwave does not move. Are there any other bolts or is there anything I am missing before I can remove the microwave?


In a normal installation, there is a plate that mounts to the wall and bolts come down through the cabinet. Once the bolts are removed from the cabinet above mic, the mic should hindge forward. It takes two people to handle. How ever, in some cases an installation guy will add screws into the side of the unit. So look for some screws to the right and left of mic. Good luck!

Can I replace a 1.3 cu ft otr microwave with a 1.5


Brackets can remain the same throughout a particular brand for several years but will also change every year at times. Same year and same brand, I would say yes. Different year of manufacture or different brand name I would say, no it will not fit the existing brackets. If you have a particular brand in mind and have the model number of the existing OTR, it is usually possible to search out installation instructions for both at the manufacturer's website. You could then compare to see if they will match up. The two screws through the upper cabinet floor into thr top of the OTR can vary, within a particular brand even in the same year of manufacturer.

I have a friend who has a OTR JVM1850 and does not want to use it for ventilation. Can he use it within a cabinet opening without turning fan on and with ample space for the microwave to breath?


The owner's manual and installation instructions will tell you how much free space must be around the oven for proper internal cooling.

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.

Installation of undercabinet microwave


If the OTR is the same model, the mounts should be the same. As long as you use the same bolts/screws from the old one, or the same length new bolts/screws, it should be a fairly simple exchange.

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.
