Microwave loose.

My microwave is loose and squeaks while driving. I looked to access the bolts to tighten but can not seem to access them.

Hey Mike, not sure about yours, but a lot over the counter microwaves/convection ovens have a slide in mount that is mounted first (normally through a cabinet floor above) and then the oven itself slides and "locks" into the mount. If the bolts are tight above (assuming you can find/see them) the slide in mount itself may be a bit loose. I have made similar fixes with some thin rubber or plastic pieces to shore up the mount. As Wayne says, this is indeed a two person job. These newer ovens are pretty darn heavy and kind of awkward to work with. -Glenn

There is a false bottom to the cabinet above the microwave. You need to pop the thin plywood up , it is just stapled down. There are 2 big screws, one on each side that tend to loosen as you drive. Tighten them up and you should be good to go. The bracket on the back is a drop in that holds the micro to the wall.

On mine, I did not reattach the false floor to the cabinet so I can periodic keep the 2 front screws tight.

If you want to take the micro down, you must remove the 2 screws first, tilt the front down and lift the back off the mounting bracket. It is definitely a 2 person job and maybe a third to remove the screws.

Thanks, will tackle that project Saturday. Don't think I can handle that squeaking on a 7000 mile trip.
