Installation Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
You should have the wall receptacle and circuit checked
by a qualified electrician to make sure the receptacle is
properly grounded.
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.
Where a standard two-prong wall receptacle is
encountered, it is very important to have it replaced
with a properly grounded three-prong wall receptacle,
installed by a qualified electrician.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT,
DEFORM OR REMOVE ANY OF THE PRONGS
FROM THE POWER CORD. DO NOT USE WITH
AN EXTENSION CORD.
ELECTRICAL
REQUIREMENTS
Product rating is 120 volts AC, 60 Hertz, 15 amps and
1.6 kilowatts. This product must be connected to a
supply circuit of the proper voltage 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- to 20- 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.
CAUTION: For personal safety, the mounting surface
must be capable of supporting the cabinet load, in
addition to the added weight of this 63–85 pound
(28.5–38.5 kg) product, plus additional oven loads of
up to 50 pounds (22.7 kg) or a total weight of
113–135 pounds (51.3–61.2 kg).
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.
NOTE: For easier installation and personal safety, it is
recommended that two people install this product.
IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. FOR
PERSONAL SAFETY, THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
PROPERLY GROUNDED TO AVOID SEVERE OR
FATAL SHOCK.
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.
Ensure proper
ground exists
before use

1 Find the studs, using one of the following
methods:
A. Stud finder – a magnetic device which
locates nails.
OR
B. Use a hammer to tap lightly across the
mounting surface to find a solid sound.
This will indicate a stud location.
2 After locating the stud(s), find the 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 16w (40.6 cm) or 24w (61 cm) from this mark.
3 Draw a line down the center of the studs.

THE MICROWAVE MUST BE LEVEL.
Use a level to make sure the cabinet bottom is level.
If the cabinets have a front overhang only, with no
back or side frame, install the mounting plate down
the same distance as the front overhang depth. This
will keep the microwave level.
Draw a line on the

5” (10.5 cm) diameter/ 6” (15.2 cm) diameter round duct
should not exceed 120 equivalent feet (36.5 m).
Outside ventilation requires a EXTERNAL EXHAUST
DUCT.Read the following carefully.
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.
For satisfactory air movement, the total duct length of
31⁄4” x 10” (8.2 x 25.4 cm) rectangular or 5” (10.5 cm)
diameter/ 6 ”(15.2 cm) diameter round duct should not
exceed120 equivalent feet (36.5 m).
Elbows, transitions, wall and roof caps,
etc., present additional resistance to airflow and are
Exhaust connection:
The exhaust adaptor has been designed to mate with
a standard 31⁄4” x 10” (8.2 x 25.4 cm) rectangular duct.
If a round duct is required, a rectangular-to-round
transition adaptor must be used.
A 5"(10.5cm)/ 6 " (15.2cm) diameter duct is .acceptable to use
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 approximate feet
of equivalent length of some typical ducts.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
• Make sure the screws for the blower motor and blower
plate are securely tightened when they are reinstalled.
This will help to prevent excessive vibration.
• Make sure the motor wiring has been properly routed
and secured, and that the wires are not pinched.
3 Place the mounting plate against the wall and
insert the toggle wings into the holes in the wall
to mount the plate.
NOTE: Before tightening toggle bolts and wood
screw, make sure the tabs on the mounting plate
touch the bottom of the cabinet when pushed flush
against the wall and that the plate is properly
centered under the cabinet.
CAUTION: Be careful to avoid pinching 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.
C1. ATTACH THE MOUNTING

You need to drill holes for the top support screws and
a hole large enough for the power cord to fit through.
2 Insert the bolts into the mounting plate through
the holes designated to go into drywall and
reattach the toggle wings to 3⁄4w (19 mm) onto
each bolt.

outlet.
1. Use a level to check that the template is positioned
accurately.
2. Locate and mark at least one stud on the left or
right side of the centerline.
016'It is important to use at least one wood
screw mounted firmly in a stud to support the weight
of the microwave. Mark two additional, evenly spaced
locations for the supplied toggle bolts.
3. Drill holes in the marked locations. Where there is
a stud, drill a 3/16" hole for wood screws. For holes
that do not line up with a stud, drill 5/8" holes for
toggle bolts.
