screws.
Refer to illustrations in "Possible Wall Stud Configurations" in
"Locate Wall Stud(s)" section.

Prepare Upper Cabinet

1. Disconnect power to outlet.
2. Remove all contents from upper cabinet.
3. Place Upper Cabinet Template against the bottom of the
upper cabinet, and attach with tape or thumbtacks. Make sure
the template centerline aligns with the vertical centerline on
the rear wall.
The "rear wall" arrows must be against the rear wall so that the
holes cut into the upper cabinet align with the holes in the top
of the microwave oven.
NOTE: If the upper cabinet has a frame around it, trim the
template edges so that it fits inside the frame, against the upper
cabinet bottom. The template has trim lines to use as guides.
4. Make sure the 10
" (26.5 cm) dimension from the rear wall to
points "D" and "E" on the template is maintained.
