Installing Trim Kit

When installing the Microwave and Trim Kit in combination with a Wall Oven or Warming Drawer, please follow the recommendations in the Microwave Installation/ Use & Care Manual.
  1. Cut opening in the cabinet face per the following dimensions:
    Height: 17” + 1/16”, –0
    Width: 24-3/4” + 1/16”, –0
NOTE: Refer to diagram at the bottom of the page. The minimum cabinet depth is 20”. When installing the Microwave and Trim Kit in combination with a Wall Oven or Warming Drawer, please follow the recommendations in the Microwave Installation/ Use & Care Manual.
  1. Add adequate platform base support in the bottom of the cabinet for trim kit base to rest on.
  2. Mark a centerline on the front edge of the cabinet bottom (Fig. 01).
  3. Place trim kit base and align centerline mark to the triangular notch on the front edge of the base (Fig. 02).
  4. Drill 1/8” pilot holes in the cabinet using the base as a template and install a screw through the base into the cabinet bottom to prevent the base from shifting (Fig. 03).
  5. Insert Microwave into opening on top of the base. The Microwave feet should sit in the recesses on the base for correct alignment. The Microwave should be plugged in at this point.   
  6. Place the right and left mounting bracket supports by resting the bottom edges of the supports on the bottom of the cutout (Fig 04). The long flange on the side supports should clear the side of the cutout by approximately 1/16” (Fig. 05). Install top and bottom screws into the cabinet face by first drilling 1/8” pilot holes (see inserts 3 and 4).
  7. Install trim kit face by inserting top pins of trim into corresponding sockets on the top corners of clip support plates (see insert 1).
  8. Finish the assembly by inserting the bottom pins into the corresponding sockets on front edge of the base (see insert 3). Check for proper door opening clearances.
