I want to mount an over the range Frididaire microwave but have no cabinet above for support. This is replacing an old all-in-one stove unit with an upper and lower oven. Will mounting it from the back provide it with sufficient support? If not, do you have any suggestions as far as building or mounting a top support?

I do not believe so but check the installation instructions for the model you intend to install.

You may be able to use a microwave support as seen at the following link with a standard counter top microwave oven model.

DanO may be right on the shelf, but my personal experience was with a supplied wall mounted bracket that holds the bottom weight, and 2 long screws that hold the top weight that go thru the cabinet directly over the microwave. The total weight bearing load requirement with the appliance and the weight of food was 130 pounds. That's 80 lbs. for the microwave and 50 lbs. for food. I doubt that I would ever cook a 50 lb. turkey in a microwave, but you have to follow the manufactures info as to load bearing requirements.

We had a double oven unit as you described - replaced it with a range and microwave above - my husband installed a cabinet on the wall above the range as we needed to hide the exhaust pipe and new electrical outlet, then followed mounting instructions to the cabinet above for the microwave. The cabinet didn't exactly match existing kitchen cabinets, so I replaced all the handles on all the cabinets and now it blends right in. It's been 6 years and still working great!
