Mounting GE Spacesaver 2 under cabinet
Model Number: Pem31 Brand:
Less than 1 year
I just purchased this GE Spacesaver PEM31 to replace an older Spacesaver unit. The old one hung from the cabinet from 4 2 3/4" flathead bolts. The new GE's call for a hanging kit, and of course the hole spacing and the bolt size has been changed so I can't re use what I have.
I called GE to find out exactly what fastener they use and after talking with 3 people in parts they couldn't tell me what size, or metric or american thread. Nothing......
The interior threaded plate has all of about 2 threads to catch and a 10-32, 10-24, and a metric 5MM all thread by hand? GO FIGURE? The 5 MM has the least slop but I can't find long enough ones in a flathead anywhere!
Does anyone know if they are using metric fasteners or not specifically with GE microwaves. Since the microwave will be hanging literally by a thread(or 2), I just don't want to strip out the threaded plate while hanging it.
