Installation Instructions

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

This product requires a three-pronggrounded 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.

CAUTION: For personal safety, the mounting surface must be capable of supporting the cabinet load, in addition to the added weight of this 63–85pound(28.5–38.5kg) product, plus additional oven loads of up to 50 pounds (22.7 kg) or a total weight of113–135pounds(51.3–61.2kg).

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.

Ensure proper

ground exists

before use

The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a three-prong(grounding) plug which mates with a standardthree-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.

Where a standard two-prongwall receptacle is encountered, it is very important to have it replaced with a properly groundedthree-prongwall 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 15to 20ampere 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.

If you are going to vent your microwave oven to the outside, see Hood Exhaust Section for exhaust duct preparation.

When installing the microwave oven beneath smooth, flat cabinets, be careful to follow the instructions on the top cabinet template for power cord clearance.

Installation Instructions

1 PLACEMENT OF THE MOUNTING PLATE

A. REMOVING THE MICROWAVE OVEN FROM THE CARTON/ REMOVING THE MOUNTING PLATE

1Remove the installation instructions, filters, glass tray and the small hardware bag. Do not remove the Styrofoam protecting the front of the oven.

2Fold back all 4 carton flaps fully against carton sides. Then carefully roll the oven and carton over onto the top side. The oven should be resting in the Styrofoam.

B. FINDING THE WALL STUDS

Wall

Studs

Center

1Find 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.

2After 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 16(40.6 cm) or 24(61 cm) from this mark.

3 Draw a line down the center of the studs.

THE MICROWAVE MUST BE CONNECTED TO AT LEAST ONE WALL STUD.

5Remove the screws from the mounting plate. This plate will be used as the rear wall template and for mounting. Reinstall the screws into the holes where they were removed.

Your cabinets may have decorative trim that interferes with the microwave installation. Remove the decorative trim to install the microwave properly and to make it level.

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.

1 Measure the inside depth of the front overhang.

2Draw a horizontal line on the back wall an equal distance below the cabinet bottom as the inside depth of the front overhang.

3For this type of installation with front overhang only, align the mounting tabs with this horizontal line, not touching the cabinet bottom as described in Step D.
