Hi Kim, just for your info and future use.. The 38900020 code you have given is for a HMG280X that starts its registration in July of 2008.

That is possibly right ive been given t from a showhome thats why i no fitting instruction
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 9 months ago.
I am looking at the information on my Hoover Technical Data and it seems that the microwave is free standing but that the fascia restricts the appliance from being placed too far to the rear... There are no screw-points
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It moves all over when you try and open it
are you sure i would say its dañgerous it could easily all out. As its eye levelCan you email me that information please
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Thx
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 9 months ago.
Sorry Kim, I can supply you with the Service Manual that includes the Installation instructions, however I do not think that they would improve on what I have told you, notwithstanding the fact that you would need to accept the additional service request to have them sent to you.
