For all cord connected appliances:
The microwave oven must be grounded. In the event of
an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of
electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric
current. The microwave oven is equipped with a cord
having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed
and grounded.
WARNING: Improper use of the grounding plug can
result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified
electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are
not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether
the microwave oven is properly grounded.
Do not use an extension cord. If the power supply cord is
too short, have a qualified electrician or serviceman install
an outlet near the microwave oven.

5. With the support tabs facing forward (see illustrations in
“Locate Wall Stud(s)” section), align the mounting plate center
markers to the centerline on the wall, making sure its bottom
edge is aligned to the horizontal line drawn in Step 3, and that
the end holes are properly marked. Make sure the mounting
plate is level.
6. Holding the mounting plate in place, find the wall stud
centerline(s) drawn in Step 2 of “Locate Wall Stud(s),” and
mark at least 1, preferably 2 hole(s) through the mounting
plate, closest to the wall stud centerline(s). See figures 1, 2
and/or 3 in “Possible Wall Stud Configurations” in “Locate
Wall Stud(s)” section. The blackened holes in the shaded
areas are ideal hole locations.
7. Set the mounting plate aside.

NOTES:
■ If the front edge of the upper cabinet is lower than the back
edge, lower the cardboard template so that its top is level
with the front edge of the cabinet.
■ If the cardboard template is damaged or unusable, measure
and mark the wall with the dimensions described in Step 4.

14. Using a keyhole saw, cut out the venting cutout area.
Drill Holes in Rear Wall
In addition to being installed on at least 1 wall stud, the mounting
plate must attach to the wall at both end holes. If the end holes
are not over wall studs, use two 1/4-20 x 3" round-head bolts with
toggle nuts; if 1 end hole is over a wall stud, use 1 lag screw and
one 1/4-20 x 3" round-head bolt with toggle nut; or if both end
holes are over wall studs, use 2 lag screws. Following are 3
installation configurations.
Installation for No Wall Studs at End Holes

round-head bolts and toggle nuts or 1/4 x 2" lag screws.
Refer to illustrations in “Possible Wall Stud Configurations” in
“Locate Wall Stud(s)” section.
6. Check alignment of mounting plate, making sure it is level.
7. Securely tighten all lag screws and bolts.
Wall Stud at One End Hole (Figure 3)

Prepare Upper Cabinet
1. Disconnect power to outlet.
2. Remove all contents from upper cabinet.
3. Place Upper Cabinet Template against the bottom of the
upper cabinet, and attach with tape or thumbtacks. Make sure
the template centerline aligns with the vertical centerline on
the rear wall.
The “rear wall” arrows must be against the rear wall so that the
holes cut into the upper cabinet align with the holes in the top
of the microwave oven.
NOTES:
■ If the upper cabinet has a frame around it, trim the template
edges so that it fits inside the frame, against the upper cabinet
bottom. The template has trim lines to use as guides.
■
If the wall behind the microwave oven (as installed) has a
partial wall covering (for example, tile backsplash), be sure the
“Rear Wall” arrows align to the thickest part of the rear wall
(for example, the thickness of the tiles rather than the drywall).
4. Make sure the 10" (25.4 cm) dimension from the rear wall to
points “D” and “E” on the template is maintained.

These are for two 1/4-20 x 3" bolts and washers used to
secure the microwave oven to the upper cabinet.
IMPORTANT: The control side of the microwave oven is the heavy
side. Handle the microwave oven gently.
1. Place a washer on each 1/4-20 x 3" flat-head bolt and place
inside upper cabinet near the 3/8" (10 mm) holes.
2. Make sure the microwave oven door is closed and taped shut.

NOTE: If microwave oven does not need to be adjusted, skip
steps 7-9.
7. If adjustment is required, rotate microwave oven downward.
Using 2 or more people, lift microwave oven off of mounting
plate, and set aside on a covered surface.
8. Loosen mounting plate screws. Adjust mounting plate and
retighten screws.
9. Repeat steps 3-6.
10. With the microwave oven centered, and with at least one
person holding it in place, insert bolts through upper cabinet
into microwave oven. Tighten bolts until there is no gap
between upper cabinet and microwave oven.
NOTES:
■ Some upper cabinets may require bolts longer or shorter than
3" (7.6 cm). Longer or shorter bolts are available at most
hardware stores.
2. Connect vent to damper assembly.
A
Overtightening bolts may warp the top of the microwave oven.
To avoid warping, wood filler blocks (installer to provide)
may be added. The blocks must be the same thickness as
the space between the upper cabinet bottom and the
microwave oven.

operating the vent fan.
5. If the microwave oven does not operate:
■ Check that a household fuse has not blown, or that a
circuit breaker has not tripped. Replace the fuse or reset
the circuit breaker. If the problem continues, call an
electrician.

VENTING DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS
This section is intended for architectural designer and
builder/contractor reference only.
NOTES:
■ Vent materials needed for installation are not provided with
microwave hood combination.
■
We do not recommend using a flexible metal vent.
■
To avoid possible product damage, be sure to vent air outside,
unless using recirculation installation. Do not vent exhaust air
into concealed spaces, such as spaces within walls or
ceilings, attics, crawl spaces or garages.
For optimal venting installation, we recommend:
■
using roof or wall caps that have back draft dampers
■
using a rigid metal vent
■
using the most direct route by minimizing the length of the
vent and number of elbows to provide efficient performance
■
using uniformly sized vents
■
using duct tape to seal all joints in the vent system
■
using caulking compound to seal exterior wall or roof opening
around cap
■
not installing 2 elbows together, for optimal hood performance

NOTE: The minimum 3" (7.6 cm) clearance must exist between
the top of the microwave oven and the rectangular to round
transition piece so that the damper can open freely and fully.

If venting through the roof, and rectangular to round transition is
used, be sure there is at least 3" (7.6 cm) of clearance between
the top of the microwave oven and the transition piece. See

Recommended Vent Length
A 3¹⁄₄" x 10" (8.3 x 25.4 cm) rectangular or 6" (15.2 cm) round vent
should be used.
The total length of the vent system including straight vent,
elbow(s), transitions and wall or roof caps must not exceed the
equivalent of 140 ft (42.7 m) for either type of vent. See
“Recommended Standard Fittings” section for equivalent lengths.
For best performance, use no more than three 90° elbows.
To calculate the length of the system you need, add the equivalent
lengths of each vent piece used in the system. See the following
examples:
6" (15.2 cm) vent system = 73 ft (22.2 m) total
A
B
6 ft (1.8 m)
2 ft
(0.6 m)
3¹⁄₄" x 10" (8.3 x 25.4 cm) vent system = 73 ft (22.2 m) total
A
B
6 ft (1.8 m)
C
D
A. Two 90° elbows = 20 ft (6.1 m)
B. 1 wall cap = 40 ft (12.2 m)
C. 1 rectangular to round transition piece = 5 ft (1.5 m)
D. 2 ft (0.6 m) + 6 ft (1.8 m) straight = 8 ft (2.4 m)
2 ft
(0.6 m)
C
A. One 3¹⁄₄" x 10" (8.3 x 25.4 cm) 90° elbow = 25 ft (7.6 m)
B. 1 wall cap = 40 ft (12.2 m)
C. 2 ft (0.6 m) + 6 ft (1.8 m) straight = 8 ft (2.4 m)
If the existing vent is round, a rectangular to round transition piece
must be used. In addition, a rectangular 3" (7.6 cm) extension vent
between the damper assembly and rectangular to round transition
piece must be installed to keep the damper from sticking.
