Hi,
On this model, item #1 is the only part you will need to invert. Lift out and rotate to allow venting to be possible to the wall. In other words, the open part needs to face the back of the microwave. Also if you removed the blower, you will need to re-install it back and correctly. You could have venting issues if not back in the proper location.

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.

Jennair JMV8208BCS No instructions in box


Hello. the installation of wall mounting bracket is not too difficult. you will need a drill, some bits, and a scrrewdriver. you will also need an electrical outlet at that spot to plug in the microwave.

Jennair makes a bracket kit for each microwave. Call any jennair dealer, have your model # handy and they will get you the bracket you need, also ask specifically for the instructions.

Wall mounting needed for a top mount microwave/hood combination Whirlpool Model MH2175SB1. The cabinet above the stove is too flimsy to support the heavy microwave (50-60 pounds). Called Whirlpool. Sent me...


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..

I purchased an Advantium 120 SCA 1001KSS my kitchen plan was to install this into the wall not over the cooktop. The salesperson said I could. The installation information does not support that as I think...


I'm not finding a trim kit for those, but it's best to contact GE customer service here.

That is considered an accessory, so it;s not something I commonly search for.

Sounds easy...but


Installing one of these between two cabinets and supported by the one above it is a pain ..but even worse if you don't have the installation directions. If you are relatively handy and have some carpenntry experience, I'll walk you thru the way I install them. First off, I assume you are installing this above a stove and betwwen two wall cabinets.. You need to do a little preparation work first. locate the wall mount bracket and you should have a packet of hardware ( primarily two long screws that will be used to support the front of the micro from the cabinet above) If you have all this.. you'll need to determine if you are going to vent the micro back into the room or plan to vent it outside. The simplest is to vent it back into the rook thru a charcoal filter but if you are going tovent it outside, you have two choices.. one is to vent it up thru the cabinet and outside via ductwork that you buy..if the microwave oven is being attached to an outside wall then it is easiest to vent it straight out the back ( i say this because you have to orient the blower in teh configuration that you are planning to use) Let's assume you will be venting this back into the room ( that's the easiest ) and move on.. The wall mount bracket supports the back bottom of the microwave oven when you secure it and the two long screws will be used to bring the front of the micro up against the bottom of the cabinet above it... I normally locate the wall studs and then buy and fit a 1/2 inch piece of plywood onto the wall where the micro will be mounted. The microwave will project out 1/2 inch further as a result of this plywood panel but.. you can use lots of drwall screws to the secure the plywood to the wall studs and then you can mount the wall bracket onto this plywood without having to worry about where the studs are and if it will support the microwaves weight. Mount the bracket onto this plywood piece. I will use drwall screws and add flat washers to them to provide additional support. Once that bracket is installed, you will need to figure out how you are going to provide power to the microwave. If you are replacing an existing oven then you will probably have a power fees inside the cabinet =situated above the microwave oven. If not, then you will need to provide a power feed for this. In the old days, most of these appliances were hard wired into junction boxes but nowadays, most appliances are treated as removable and all you will need is an outlet box in the cabinet above. I suggest you bore a hole large enough for the power cord plug to fit thru the bottom of the cabinet so that you can plug it in. The next part is the hardest to accomplish.. If you look at the top of the microwave oven, you should see two holes near thhe front and on top. Those two holes have floating captive nuts inside them that the long screws ( included in your hardware kit) will be used to snug the front of the micro up against the bottom of the cabinet above it.. The trick is to measure from the back wall out to where these holes need to be drilled in the cabinet above so that they line up. You can drill bigger holes than you need and use oversize washers if necessary. If this sounds complicated ..it IS.. i have put many of these in and unless you are actually doing one, youhave no idea how involved this can be.. even worse with ducting to the outside.... I hope this gives you some tricks on how to install.. And um.. if you do get this all together, you will need some help actually putting it in place.. You'll need to catch the back of the microwave onto the tabs of the wall bracket and then feed the wire thru the cabinet while you lift the entire thing up to start the screws from the cabinet down onto the top of the microwave. I'm a big guy and have done these myself but it is not easy.. Hope this helps you.. Lastly, here is a link to the GE website where you can download the user manual and search their FAQ for install details ( in retrospect, I just should have given you that info).. http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/
Hope this helps you...

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.

TO: capt_bob1954:

You can find an exploded view of the outer case & installation parts for the 564.8775380 model here. Maybe that will help.

If not, on that same page, it shows where you can order a copy of the installation instruction manual for $4.99. It's probably worth it to save a lot of aggravation.
