Microwave Install

So the 1988 GE model ended its life in Sidney BC. Mounting was accomplished with a back plate attached to the back wall. The unit's bottom supported by a rail and then two bolts that screwed into the top of the back panel.

Today's microwave (over the oven) all mount with the rail on the bottom, but the top now has bolts that mount the top of the unit through the top cabinet. The problem is I don't have a top cabinet.

In mounting this unit I had to drill holes from the bottom through top case which is about 4 inches. Then used a 1 inch hole saw through the top so the bolts could reach the top of the unit. It worked, but now I have to fix the two holes in the top of the case.

Good job Tom. I doubt I would have thought to attach a back plate and do it the way you did. Now reach around and pat yourself on the back.
