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.
