Home Installation of a Microwave Oven Over a Stove Microwave Oven Mounting Template

Microwave Oven Mounting Template

This metal electrical box was mounted using one Madison Bar on the right side and a sheet metal screw on the left side. A wall stud is against the left side of the box making it ideal to attach the box. The metal box must be grounded by attaching the bare copper wire using a 10/32 screw.

Note the template tapedto the back wall. There is also another template for the top mounting holes and the cord hole. The mounting holes must be properly located.

The plan is to pull the existing hood wire up into the back of the cabinet and attach an electrical box and receptacle to it so that the microwave oven can be plugged in.
The completed ductless installation. If air ducts were connected, the work would be a little more difficult and require the skills and tools of another trade.
