The cardboard piece from the top of the microwave oven packaging is perforated. The piece inside the perforation is for use as a rear wall template.

1.Cut along the perforation to separate the template from the rest of the cardboard packaging.

2.Set the cardboard template to the side and refer to it during the “Mark Rear Wall” part of installation.

Location Requirements

Check the opening where the microwave oven will be installed. The location must provide:

■■ Minimum installation dimensions. See “Installation Dimensions” illustration.

■■ Minimum one 2" x 4" (50.8 x 101.6 mm) wood wall stud and minimum C\," (10 mm) thickness drywall or plaster/lath within cabinet opening.

■■ Support for weight of 150 lbs (68 kg), which includes microwave oven and items placed inside the microwave oven and upper cabinet.

■■ Grounded electrical outlet inside upper cabinet. See “Electrical Requirements” section.

NOTES:

■■ If installing the microwave oven near a left sidewall, make sure there is at least 6" (15.2 cm) of clearance between the wall and the microwave oven, so that the door can open fully.

■■ Some cabinet and building materials are not designed to withstand the heat produced by the microwave oven for cooking. Check with your builder or cabinet supplier to make sure that the materials used will not discolor, delaminate or sustain other damages.

Special Requirements

For Wall Venting Installation Only:

■■ Cutout must be free of any obstructions so that the vent fits properly, and the damper blade opens freely and fully.

For Roof Venting Installation Only:

■■ If you are using a rectangular to round transition piece,

the 3" (7.6 cm) clearance needs to exist above the microwave oven so that the damper blade can open freely and fully.

See “Rectangular to Round Transition” illustration in “Venting Design Specifications” section.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

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.
