Over The Range Microwave Oven
This Microwave Oven/Hood should be mounted against and
supported by a fl at vertical wall. The wall must be fl at for
proper installation. If the wall is not fl at, use spacers to fi ll in
the gaps. Wall construction should be a minimum of 2" x 4"
wood studding and
³⁄₈" or more thick dry wall or plaster/lath.
The mounting surfaces must be capable of supporting weight
of 110 pounds—the oven and contents—AND the weight of
all items which would normally be stored in the top cabinet
above the unit.
The unit should be attached to a minimum of one 2" x 4"
wall stud or two 2" x 3" wall studs.
To fi nd the location of the studs, one of the following methods
may be used:
A. Use a stud finder, a magnetic device which locates the
nails in the stud.
B. Use a hammer to tap lightly across the mounting surface
to find a solid sound. This will indicate stud location.
The center of the stud can be located by probing the wall with
a small nail to fi nd the edges of the stud and then placing a
mark halfway between the edges. The center of any adjacent
studs will normally be 16" or 24" to either side of this mark.
