Question about Microwave Ovens
I bought a used whirlpool microwave oven model MH1160xsq and I think I am missing a few of the mounting parts could you give me some idea of what I need and how to mount it above the stove.

First I would wonder if you really need to remove it from the wall? Many repairs can be done with it still in the wall. If so, installation instructions should be with the paperwork that came with the oven, and that will show you how to remove it. Buit if you don't have that, you would likely remove the grille from across the top. The grille is usually held in place with screws and/or clips. After that is out, there may be a couple of other screws now revealed at the top edge, or there may be a one or more "catches" just under the top edge of the the chassis. I would strongly advise you to have a helper working with you. These can be heavy, and awkward. You might call the GE Answer Center and ask if they can supply you with installation instructions. They're at 800-626-2005 (24 hrs.) Otherwise, you may be able to find instructions that are close enough at a place like Lowe's. They may have some demo models and you can usually ask to look at the manuals.

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..
