Do not use a plastic cover . Failure to protect these surfaces could result in property damage , BEFORE YOU START 1 , Remove any shipping materials and parts from inside the microwave oven . 2 . Cover the counter top or cooktop with a thick , protective covering to protect it from damage and dirt . See Figure 20 . NOTE : If you have a free - standing range , disconnect it , move it onto a piece of cardboard or hardboard and pullit away from the Figure 201 - 1 wall , so that you can get closer to the upper cabinet and beck wall for easier measuring and drilling . Be careful notto pinch or damage the cord when you push the range back . MEASURE AND TACK / TAPE UP THE TEMPLATES 1 . Using a plumb line and ( metal ) measuring tape , find and mark the vertical center line on the back wall , as in Figure 21 . 2 . Find and mark one or two points where the studs are on the wall .

Installation STEP 4 : PREPARE THE WALL AND UPPER CABINET FOR INSTALLATION [ WARNING I BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN DRILLING HOLES INTO THE WALL . Electrical wires could be concealed behind the wall covering and if the drill hits them you could get an electric shock • DRILL THE HOLES IN THE WALL AND UPPER CABINET • 1 . Find the points on the wall template labeled D , E , F , and G . Drill a 3 / 16 " diameter hole at any points that are over a wall stud . Drill a 3 / 4 " diameter hole at any points over drywall . 2 . Locate the wall stud closest to the center of the areas marked H and I on the wall template . Drill 3 / 16 " holes into the wall stud in each of the areas . If a wall stud is not located within these areas , drill 3 / 4 " diameter holes nearest to the center of the areas as possible . If there is not a wall stud within the areas marked H and I , or behind points marked D , E , F , and G , DO NOT install microwave oven . ( Consult building inspector . ) There must be at least one stud in those areas . 3 . Drill a 3 / 8 " hole at points J , K , and N on the upper cabinet template . NOTE : If the bottom of the upper cabinet is recessed 3 / 4 " or more , you will need 2 " x2 " filler blocks ( not included ) to provide additional support for the bolts . See Figure 23 . • Mark the center of each filler block and drill a 3 / 8 " diameter hole at the marks . • Align filler blocks over the two openings in the top of the microwave oven cabinet and attach to cabinet with masking tape . See Figure 24 . cabinetD cabinet front filler block 4 . Cut or drill a 2 " diameter hole at the area marked M . bottom shelf Power supply cord hole on the upper cabinet template . If the upper cabinet is metal , you will need to cover the edge of the hole with the power supply cord bushing ( supplied ) to prevent damage to the cord from the rough metal edge . l WARNING ] YOU MUST COVER THE EDGE OF THE POWER SUPPLY CORD HOLE IN A METAL CABINET WITH THE Figure 23 POWER SUPPLY CORD BUSHING .
