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 3/8" (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.
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,
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.
