jsmile266,

This microwave does not have one touch heating as you have listed. There are some preset quick touch heating options, but for the timed cooking you would follow the instructions below. This way you don't inadvertently start the microwave before you mean to. Thank you for viewing this Maytag home appliance.

Manual Cooking/Stage Cooking
Touch COOK TIME, touch number pads to enter time, touch
COOK POWER (if not 100%), touch number pads to enter power level (10-90), then touch the Start control.
If programming additional stages, enter the cook time and cook power of each before touching the Start control.

I am not aware if an older mount would work for a new appliance. You would need to contact the Parts and Service Hotline to inquire further about that. This Maytag OTR does come with a template, frame, and hardware for installation. You can also view the detailed installation instructions on the product page under the Info & Guides section. The Home Depot/Maytag Hotline is 877.461.3376, Option 2, Option 1. Thank you for viewing this Maytag home appliance.

Maytag does not offer a 36" Over the Range Microwave. We only offer it in the 30" width, however the 30" model will typically work for a 36" cook top. It would depend on how comfortable you with the aesthetics. We do offer 36" range hoods as an alternative. Thank you for viewing this Maytag Over the Range Microwave.

Melanie,
The charcoal filter on the Over the Range Microwave is located on the top of the microwave in the front. You would not want a shelf to completely cover the top of the microwave as the venting for this OTR and many other models are on the top in the front. This provides a much better look and style. I have cut and pasted the information about the filters below from the use and care guide. Also, you can view the Instructions/Assembly guide if it would be of use to you. This document and the Use and Care Guide are located on the product page. Thank you for viewing this Maytag home appliance.

Installing/Replacing Filters and Light Bulbs
NOTE: A filter status indicator (on some models) appears in the
display when it is time to replace the charcoal filter, and clean or
replace the grease filter. See “Settings” section to reset filter status.
■ Grease filters: Grease filters are on the underside of microwave
oven. Clean monthly, or as prompted by filter status indicator.
Slide the filter away from the tab area, and drop out the filter.
To reinstall, place end of the filter into the opening opposite
the tab area, swing up the other end, and slide it toward the
tab area.
■ Charcoal filter: The charcoal filter is behind the vent grille at the
top front of the microwave oven. The charcoal filter cannot be
cleaned, and should be replaced about every 6 months, or as
prompted by filter status indicator. Remove two screws on the
vent grille, tilt the grille forward, lift it out, and remove filter. To
reinstall, place the filter into its slotted area – wire mesh side
up, replace vent grille, and secure with screws.

My MMV5208WW was delivered to me with all the physical brackets, screw, lag bolts etc etc necessary to install the unit.

It was necessary to remove the brackets and mounting bits behind the OLD microwave OTR we were replacing. Is it possible that you have been quoted the HD installation service, to provide additional installation SERVICES rather than make you go to the trouble of measuring, drilling, lifting, etc etc. to translate your "box on the floor" delivered microwave into an installed, working product over your stove.

Call your HD and see what they say. My opinion..... All the words relating to "Parts" are marketing persuasion, and the line that says " M922 OTR INSTALL" says it all.

In researching your question, I did a Google search on your model number. The installation manual is available on the web to read or download. Installation Dimensions in this manual call out a clearance of 30 Inches from the TOP of the cabinet space to the range top. This is identified as "typical" clearance. Since the microwave dimensions indicate a top-to-bottom height of 16 1/4 inches, that would indicate clearance from the microwave bottom to the range top of 13 3/4 inches. That seems a bit close to me, The clearance between my new Maytag (door) and my stove top is 17 inches. There does not appear to be a mandatory clearance dimension in the installation manual document. Using the integrated fan whenever you have the stove top working is always a good idea.
