IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This product requires a three-prong grounded
outlet. The installer must perform a ground
continuity check on the power outlet box before
beginning the installation to insure that the
outlet box is properly grounded. If not properly
grounded, or if the outlet box does not meet
electrical requirements noted (under ELECTRICAL
REQUIREMENTS), a qualified electrician should be
employed to correct any deficiencies.

CAUTION: For personal
safety, remove house
fuse or open circuit
breaker before
beginning installation
to avoid severe or fatal
shock injury.
The power cord of this
appliance is equipped
with a three-prong
(grounding) plug which
mates with a standard
three-prong (grounding)
wall receptacle to
minimize the possibility
of electric shock hazard
from this appliance.
You should have the wall receptacle and circuit
checked by a qualified electrician to make sure
the receptacle is properly grounded.
If you have a standard two-prong wall
receptacle, it is very important to have it
replaced with a properly grounded threeprong wall receptacle, installed by a qualified
electrician.
CAUTION: For personal safety, the mounting
surface must be capable of supporting the
cabinet load and the added weight of this 69
pound product, plus additional oven loads
of up to 50 pounds or a total weight of 109
pounds.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT,
DEFORM OR REMOVE ANY OF THE PRONGS
FROM THE POWER CORD. DO NOT USE WITH
AN EXTENSION CORD.
CAUTION: For personal safety, this product
cannot be installed in cabinet arrangements
such as an island or a peninsula. It must be
mounted to BOTH a top cabinet AND a wall.

and frequency. Wire size must conform to the
requirements of the National Electrical Code or the
prevailing local code for this kilowatt rating. The
power supply cord and plug should be brought to a
separate 15 ampere branch circuit single grounded
outlet. The outlet box should be located in the
cabinet above the microwave oven. The outlet box
and supply circuit should be installed by a qualified
electrician and conform to the National Electrical
Code or the prevailing local code.
IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.

General information
Maximum duct length:
Outside ventilation requires a HOOD EXHAUST DUCT.
Read the following carefully.
For satisfactory air movement, the total duct length of
3 ¼˝ x 10˝ rectangular or 6˝ diameter round duct should
not exceed 140 equivalent feet.
NOTE: It is important that venting be installed using
the most direct route and with as few elbows as
possible. This ensures clear venting of exhaust and
helps prevent blockages. Also, make sure dampers
swing freely and nothing is blocking the ducts.
Elbows, transitions, wall and roof
caps, etc., present additional resistance to airflow
and are equivalent to a section of straight duct which is
longer than their actual physical size. When calculating
the total duct length, add the equivalent lengths of all
transitions and adaptors plus the length of all straight
duct sections. The chart below shows you how to
calculate total equivalent ductwork length using the
equivalent length in feet of some typical ducts.
Exhaust connection:
The hood exhaust has been designed to mate with a
standard 3 ¼˝ x 10˝ rectangular duct.
If a round duct is required, a rectangular-to-round
transition adaptor must be used. Do not use less
than a 6˝ diameter duct.

NOTES:
• The space between the cabinets must be 30˝ wide and
free of obstructions.
• This microwave oven is for installation over ranges up
to 36˝ wide.
• If you are going to vent your microwave oven to the
outside, see the Hood Exhaust Section for exhaust
duct preparation.
• If installing the microwave oven beneath smooth
flat cabinets, be careful to follow the instructions
on the top cabinet template for power cord
clearance.
• Maximum cabinet depth above and beside the
unit is 12˝.
• The dimensions provided are the minimum
required for mounting the microwave oven. Local
codes and the practical use of the range will
likely require you to provide more than the 13.5˝
shown between the range and the bottom of the
microwave.

2. After locating the stud(s), find the stud’s center
by probing the wall with a small nail to find the
edges of the stud. Then, place a mark halfway
between the edges. The center of any adjacent
studs should be 16˝ or 24˝ from this mark.

B. ATTACH THE MOUNTING
PLATE TO THE WALL
You need to cut an opening in the rear wall for
outside exhaust.
Attach the plate to the wall using toggle bolts. At
least one wood screw must be used to attach the
plate to a wall stud.
1. Remove the toggle wings from the bolts.
2. Insert the bolts into the mounting plate through
the holes designated to go into drywall, and
then reattach the toggle wings so that ¾˝ of the
bolt protrudes beyond the wing.
CL
• Read the instructions for outside back exhaust
on the REAR WALL TEMPLATE.
• Tape the REAR WALL TEMPLATE to the rear
wall.
• Cut the opening, following the instructions on
the REAR WALL TEMPLATE.
CAUTION: Do not cut an opening in the rear wall if
you are installing the microwave with vertical duct or
non-vented ductless ventilation.

INSTALL THIS MICROWAVE OVEN.
3. Place the mounting plate against the wall and
insert the toggle wings into the holes in the wall to
mount the plate.
IMPORTANT: Do not grip or use the handle
during installation.
NOTE: Before tightening the toggle bolts and wood
screw, make sure the bottom of the Mounting plate
runs along the bottom Horizontal line of the “Rear wall
Template” and the Mounting plate is properly centered
under the cabinet.
NOTE: If your cabinet is metal, use the nylon
grommet in the power cord hole to prevent the cord
from being cut.
NOTE: Filler blocks are required when mounting this
unit under any cabinet with a recessed bottom or
front overhang. (See page 9.)
CAUTION: Be careful to avoid pinching your fingers
between the back of the mounting plate and the wall.
4. Tighten all bolts. Pull the plate away from the wall
to help tighten the bolts. Tighten the screw.
IMPORTANT: The case damage that will occur
from over tightening screws if you do not use
filler blocks is not covered under warranty.
C. USE THE TOP CABINET
TEMPLATE TO PREPARE
THE TOP CABINET
IMPORTANT: For models with the grease filter
installed, don’t push up on the filter when you
mount the oven.
You need to drill holes for the top support screws and
a hole large enough for the power cord to fit through.
Grease Filter
• Read the instructions on the TOP CABINET
TEMPLATE.
• Tape it underneath the top cabinet.
