Unfortunately the support holes are not universal at all. As models get changes, the support frame must be changed internally inside the microwave so the holes always move and so does the back wall support bracket. The new microwave will come with a paper template so you know where to drill the holes in your cabinet above the microwave however.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here.
