What is the purpose of the "catch" (part number AP3177766)? Basically, I am unable to get the microwave/hood unit to rotate away from the wall. The two top srews are removed buthe unit will only rotate about 10 degrees from the wall.
Vent type is thru the roof. The boot for the vent is completely disconected from the top of the unit.
It seems as thought the unit was mounted too close to the bottom of the cabinet, but if this was the case, how could the microwave have been installed?
I'm hoping the "catch" is some type of release. However, said "catch" is not mentioned in the installation manual.
Thanks for your time,
ANSWER Hello John. Remove the mounting plate:
• Remove two screws from top of microwave hood
located closest to the front corners. Loosen but do not
remove screws located towards the center of hood.
• Remove front grille. Set screws and grille aside.
• Pull hook to release mounting plate. Separate
mounting plate and set aside. Hope this helps.
