    I have misplaced my rear wall and under cabinet templates? How can I obtain another one. J and J parts store claims they do not carry them.

    In recirculat​ing this microwave the picture shows a grill, the microwave does not have a grill but a smooth stainless steel plate. How do I remove this plate, is there a grill under it? The salesman at Best Buy said it could be converted to reculating and the owners manual states this as well. Do I need to have you ship a grill to me before it is installed? This is very frustratin​g.
