no problem. Even he can do it. It hangs by 2 screws from the top cabinent and a wall plate in the back. Might need a hand to lift it out. The existing micro is plugged in above or next to it in a cabinet. The new one will need a 20 amp circuit which I don't know it you have.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

Find the circuit breaker that controls the microwave. The easiest way is to plug the fifth wheel into power. One by one, turn off breakers until the microwave goes off. Then read the little number on the breaker handle. It'll either be a 15 or a 20.
