UNPACKING AND EXAMINING YOUR OVEN

Open the bottom of the carton, bend the carton flaps back and tilt the oven over to rest on plasticfoam pad. Lift carton off oven and remove all packing materials, WALL and TOP CABINET TEMPLATE, Turntable, and Turntable Support. SAVE THE CARTON AS IT MAY MAKE INSTALLATION EASIER.

1. Remove the feature sticker from the outside of the door, if there is one.

2. DO NOT REMOVE THE WAVEGUIDE COVER, which is located on the right side wall of the oven cavity. Check to see that there is a WALL TEMPLATE and TOP CABINET TEMPLATE. Read enclosures and SAVE the Operation Manual.

Check the oven for any damage, such as misaligned or bent door, damaged door

seals and sealing surfaces, broken or loose door hinges and latches and dents inside the cavity or on the door. If there is any damage, do not operate the oven and contact your dealer or SHARP AUTHORIZED SERVICER.

Please read all instructions thoroughly before installing the Over the Counter Microwave Oven. Two people are recommended to install this product.

If a new electrical outlet is required, its installation should be completed by a qualified electrician before the Microwave Oven is installed. See 3 ELECTRICAL GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS on page 7.

1 MOUNTING SPACE

This Microwave Oven requires a mounting space on a wall as shown in Figure 1. It is designed to be used under

standard 24-inchwide wall cabinets.

Figure 1

24"

2 WALL CONSTRUCTION

This Microwave Oven should be mounted against and supported by a flat vertical wall. The wall must be flat for proper installation. If the wall is not flat, use spacers to fill 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.

To find 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 find 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.

3 ELECTRICAL GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

This appliance must be grounded. This oven is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. It must be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current.

WARNING - Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock.

Electrical Requirements

Check Installation Instructions for proper location for the power supply.

The electrical requirements are a 120 volt 60 Hz, AC only, 15 amp. or more protected electrical supply. It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only the oven be provided.

The oven is equipped with a 3-pronggrounding plug. It must be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and grounded. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CUT OR REMOVE THE GROUNDING PIN FROM THE PLUG.

The Power Supply Cord and plug must be connected to a separate 120 Volt AC, circuit, single grounded receptacle. The receptacle should be located inside Microwave Oven mounting location as shown in Figure 2.

NOTE:

1.If you have any questions about the grounding or electrical instructions, consult a qualified electrician or serviceperson.

60 Hz, 15 Amp, or more branch the cabinet directly above the

7 OVEN INSTALLATION

THIS OVEN CANNOT BE PROPERLY INSTALLED WITHOUT REFERRING TO THE MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS FOUND ON WALL AND TOP CABINET TEMPLATES.

THE NEXT STEP IS TO READ AND FOLLOW MOUNTING INFORMATION ON WALL AND TOP CABINET TEMPLATES. THIS OVEN MUST BE ATTACHED TO AT LEAST ONE WALL STUD. SEE WALL CONSTRUCTION ON PAGE 6.

WHEN DONE WITH TEMPLATES, PROCEED TO MOUNTING SCALE PLATE SECTION.

MOUNTING SCALE PLATE

Attach 2 Scale Plates 8 with tape (not included). See Figure 6 and WALL TEMPLATE for locations.

NOTE: This Microwave Oven may not be built-indirectly over gas or electric ovens or cooktops. To reduce the risk of fire or electrical shock, install at least 13 3/16" above the countertop.

Figure 6

Scale Plates

Mounting Plate

MOUNTING PLATE

1.Separate 4 Toggle Bolts 2, packed in the INSTALLATION HARDWARE, from the Toggle Nuts.

2.Match 5/8” holes (not in studs), drilled through WALL AND TOP CABINET TEMPLATE into wall to corresponding holes on Mounting Plate.

3.Insert Toggle Bolts into matched openings on Mounting Plate. Put Toggle Nuts on Toggle Bolts. See Figure 7.

4.Position the Mounting Plate with the Toggle Bolts attached at the wall location and insert Toggle Nuts and Bolts through the holes in the wall with the Toggle Nuts closed. Figure 8. Use Wood Screws 1 to attach the Mounting Plate to studs.

NOTE: Before insertion, be sure you leave a space more than the thickness of the wall between the Mounting Plate and the end of each of the Toggle Nuts (in the closed position). If you do not leave enough space, the Toggle Nut will not be able to open on the other side of the wall. Also, once a Toggle Nut opens, it cannot be withdrawn from the hole; therefore make sure all of the Toggles are in the correct position before insertion.

5.Align the Mounting Plate carefully and hold in position while tightening Toggle Bolts. Pull Toggle Bolt toward you and turn clockwise to tighten. Figure 9.
