  1. There’s all those holes in the mount for a reason. Use the ones that line up on a freaking stud instead of using a drywall anchor unless there’s no stud on one side.

  2. Funny as hell, his old one is same as mine and his new one I’m installing is exactly the same also 👍👍 thank you

  3. Silly question… i’ve never recirculated exhaust before… are filter changes necessary, and if so how often? Must the microwave be un-mounted in order to do a filter change? It appears it would have to be?

  4. My old microwave is vented to the outside. Are microwave vents uniform so that a new one will line up?

  5. Excellent instructions, thanks! I find it helpful if you’re replacing a microwave to replace with the same brand if possible. This increases your chance of not having to replace mounting brackets. Mine was replaced in about an hour with a couple of extra hands to help hold/lift.

  6. It took me two hours to remove my old one it did not just come off as easily as it did in the videos after I removed all the screws!!!!!

  7. Watch video, think that it’s easy. After watching, buy a countertop one, plug it in and heat my coffee. Basically all I use it for
