Question about Whirlpool GH9115XE 850 Watts Convection / Microwave Oven

2 Answers

How can I install this oven GH9115XE?

On top of this oven, I find two thread holes for mounting. But this is a heavy one, it must have another mounting accessory to support the weight.
I took it off from its mounting location about 5 years ago, now I just don't know exactly how to put it back.
Could you give me some instruction?

    Thank you very very much, It is very helpful.

    I just don't know I still have the mounting plate or not.

    What if I don't have, can I get some steel angles or Angles plate from Home Depot to hold the Microwave oven?

  • kitegl Jan 26, 2008

    Where can I get the picture or sketch of the original mounting plate and accessories? It possibly can help my best half to locate it in the basement, since I won't be home for another month.

    I am highly appreciated your help.

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:

When you removed it years ago, did you keep the rear mounting plate? It was affixed to the wall behind the microwave. It needs to be screwed / lagged / or togglebolted to the wall first, then the bottom of the microwave sets onto it and is swung up into the opening and your heavy screws / bolts come down from inside the upper cabinet and into the microwave. If you have all the parts but not the instructions, you will have to do some careful measuring to determine exactly where the holes need to be placed for the screws / bolts coming down from the upper cabinet. If you no longer have the mounting plate, you may still be able to get it through a Appliance Dealer.

    I suppose it could be done by mounting an angle to the wall at the proper height, then putting the microwave in place, I would be afraid of the thing falling off and landing on the stove personally. The mounting plate should be available yet, it would probably run 50 to 60 dollars from what I can tell. I would try to do it with the proper mounting plate and if its no longer available then do it another way if you can. ... Hope this helps and Good Luck

How do I remove a GE spacemaker model jvm130k


I assume that it's mounted below a cabinet on the mounts supplied with the microwave. If that's the case, there are four buttons on the top of the microwave in each corner. They fit into holes in the mount then slide into depressions which hold the unit in place under the cabinet.

To release the microwave push up from the bottom then try sliding it backward first. If you are able to move it, carefully slide the whole unit until it drops through the holes and is clear of the mounts.

Be very careful because the unit is pretty heavy and you'll get its full weight when it drops through the holes.

If it doesn't move when you try to slide it rearward, try sliding it sideways in either direction. The direction you must slide it in is determined by how the mounts were installed but it should slide out fairly easily once you know which way to move it.

I have a Frigidaire PLMVZ169 Over-the Range Microwave Oven. The two bolts that anchor it to the cabinet above keep turning but do not lift the oven upwards. If they are stripped can I replace them? ...


In the top of the microwave they have nuts with clips on them that snap into the outer cover. If the mounting bolts were not started carefully they could have been cross threaded and now those nuts are spinning in the cover of the unit. THAT may be a bear to remove. Can you take off the grill on the front of the unit above the door and see if you can see the bolts coming down into the unit?? If so, you may be able to grab the nuts to keep them from spinning to get the bolts out. Sorry , doesn't sound fun!!! Good Luck!!

Can you provide guidance on how to install this microwave? Trying to decide if I should pay $120 for the store to install.


Installation of an over the range microwave is not a very difficult task as long as electrical work to provide power is not needed. If no outlet exists then an electrician will be required.

Tools that may be needed for the installation include a cordless drill, drill bit, measuring tape, masking tape, stud finder, razor knife, pencil.

A template is commonly provided for mounting hole locations that need to be drilled in the cabinet. These holes are the top mounts.

An additional template for the wall bracket is normally supplied as well. Here you will need the stud finder, it is important to locate the studs and mount the wall bracket to them.

The wall bracket serves as the bottom mount and aids in the final mounting of the microwave.

Depending on the oven's size and weight a helper may be needed to complete the installation.

Remember to be safe first and seek advice/help with any step you are unsure about.

Good luck.

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.

They simply need to drill new holes, I'd say.

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.

What size are t top mounting screws on the GE JVM1350 spacesave


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

General Electric's part number for their OTR microwave cabinet mounting screw is WB01X10180 (or AP3205964 or 942461 as listed on some repair parts sites).

A set of three is GE's p/n WB01X10125 (or AP3185225 or 910236 as listed on some repair parts sites).

This flathead screw is used on most Advantium Speedcook microwave ovens such as the SCA2001BSS03 or SCA2000FWW03 or SCA2001KSS03.

Here's a picture of three screws:

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..
