1.  Find the studs using one of the following 
methods:
 
A.  With a stud finder – a magnetic device which 
locates nails.
OR
 
B.  Use a hammer to tap lightly across the 
mounting surface until you hear a solid 
sound. This will indicate a stud location.

center by probing the wall with a small nail to 
find the edges of the stud. Then, place a mark 
halfway between the edges. The center of any 
adjacent studs should be 16˝ or 24˝ from this 
mark.
3.  Draw a line down the center of the studs.
THE MICROWAVE MUST BE CONNECTED TO
