2 WALL CONSTRUCTION
This Microwave Oven/Hood should be mounted against and
supported by a flat vertical wall. The wall must be flat for prop-
er 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
The unit should be attached to a minimum of one 2" x 4"
wall stud or two 2" x 3" wall studs.
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.
