A once friend gave me this microwave and for the last year we have been using it sitting on the counter. Now we have new cabinets and want to mount it under it, but we were given no mounting brackets or hardware. Does any one know what we need and where I might find it?

On a 1-10 scale- this is a 2.
place a cardboard box on the stove to support the microwave once it is free.
Remove power cord from the outlet in the cabinet over the microwave.
In the cabinet over the microwave, locate the 2 mounting screws.
Loosen each one about 6 turns- the microwave should drop down in the front by about 1/2 inch.
Once loose, you can remove both screws completely and allow the front of the oven to rest on the cardboard box.
While supporting the front of the microwave,have a helper remove the cardboard box.
Tricky part...while supporting the front - angled slightly down, lift hard under the rear of the microwave and pull toward you.
Have a helper feed the power cord through the upper cabinet bas as you bring the microwave toward you and slightly down.
Place the microwave on the counter- with a towel in place to prevent scratching the counter.
remove the rear-wall mounted support bracket.

Theoretically JVM1400-series microwaves (XL1400 is a meaningless number they put on the ovens) can be used on a counter top, but it's really not safe because it has no feet, and it may slide and fall off the counter.
Also, it will probably not set level on a counter.
