    I've got the same problem. I even removed the cabinet above the microwave and still can figure out how to get off the wall. Does anyone have any answers?

    John,

    Tell your "Handy Brother" he has been upgraded and now rates as a "Genius".

    Just looked at it, the 2 long screws have a half circle with "LOCK" stamped in the sheet metal.

    You would think GE might let somebody know about this.

    Thanks to you and your and your now "Genius" brother.

    (just a sidebar,is he the elder or younger brother?)

  • brownsbacker Feb 09, 2009

    I am the youngest and was always told by the elder brother that he was the smarter one. (obviously I got the looks)

    After closing the age gap (percentage wise) I have come to the belief that his logic & reasoning may have been skewed.

    You and the younger may very well have the same genius genes, they may be just dormant at this point, or just waiting for the right opprotunity.

    I think it all has to do with percentages...

    Thanks again

I also have a JVM1190 and was baffled as to removal. My very handy brother solved it in two minutes. Above the door and keypad there is a long grill secured by two small squarehead (Robertson) screws. Remove the screws and grill and you will see on either side of the opening a long bolt. They go through to the back of the microwave where the support plate attached to the wall. The bolts have a slot in the middle for a flat blade screwdriver. Simply turn the bolt to release from the back plate. Make sure there is a helper underneath as the microwave is fairly heavy. Do the reverse for re-installation.

    Glad this worked for you. My youngest brother and I looked at this for at least two hours and took out just about every screw on the thing before we gave up. The middle brother is the can-do-anything genius. Somehow the youngest and oldest brothers missed those genes.

How to remove ge spacemaker xl


You want to take the microwave off the wall, is that correct. 1st unplug the microwave--plug should be in the cabinet over the microwave. Next--in the same cabinet you should see 2 or 3 phillips head screws with big heads going through the bottom of the cabinet into the microwave top. Have someone hold up on the microwave while you remove the screws. They are about 3 inches long. Once the screws are out, the microwave should tilt forward and downward at the front. The back of the MW sits on 4 tabs on the wall mount plate so to get it off completely you have to lift the back up slightly off the tabs about 1 inch. Feed the power cord down through the cabinet and you are done.

Instalation Instructions for Frigidaire Over the Range Microwave 850 Watt Model #FMT118EPB


HI,

Frigidaire makes several over-the-range microwave models that are all installed in the same manner. To install correctly, you must have at least 45 1/2 inches from the bottom of the top cabinet to the cooking surface of the stove to provide enough clearance for the microwave. The top cabinet must also be at least 30 inches wide and 12 inches deep. Find someone to help you, then follow the steps below to install your Frigidaire microwave.

Things You'll Need:
  • Stud finder or hammer
  • Screwdriver
  • Drill
Instructions

Pull your range away from the wall so you can work comfortably. If this is not possible, cover it with a drop cloth. Find and mark the locations of the studs in the wall behind the range. They will be either 16 or 24 inches apart.

Follow the instructions on the wall template to mark the location of the mounting bracket and the four anchor holes on the wall and the bottom of the cabinet. Drill the anchor holes. Follow the instructions on the top cabinet template to mark and drill the two holes in the bottom of the cabinet.

Attach the mounting bracket to the wall studs using the six wood screws included with your microwave. Screw the toggle nuts onto the toggle bolts and push one through each of the four drilled holes. Screw each toggle bolt until the nut is snug against the inside of the wall.
Pick up the oven with your helper. Plug the oven into the outlet and slide the oven onto the mounting bracket arms. Push the oven back against the wall. Tighten the two screws on the microwave faceplate to fasten the microwave to the mounting bracket arms.
Attach the louver to the top of the microwave with the three provided screws. Insert the two top cabinet screws and washers from the top cabinet into the microwave and fasten tightly.

Take care.

Remove a whirlpool over the range microwave oven


Jim here. In cabinet above microwave, locate 2 mounting bolts.
Place a box on the stove top to support the microwave once the mounting bolts are removed (you may wish to cover the box with a thick towel or small throw rug).
Procedure:
1. Unplug microwave.
2. Remove both mounting bolts from top of microwave (they secure it to the overhead cabinet).
3. With microwave front angled down onto box, pull some of power cord out of hole (to provide some moving space).
4. With microwave hand supported, remove box from stove top (a second set of hands would be helpful here).
5. HARD PART- detach top of microwave back from wall mounting plate by placing a hand under the bottom rear of the microwave and pushing up. (Wall mounting plate is screwed into the wall behind the microwave and provides both top and bottom support to the back of the microwave.)
6. Lower front of microwave until you can see about a 1-inch clearance between the top-rear of the microwave and the cabinet above it.
7. Firmly lift the microwave straight up and then bring forward. It should be free of the wall mounting plate.

How to remove a sharp r 1481 over the counter microwave


If you are referring to an over your stove combination microwave/ vent system then they are typically secured thru the cabinet above them. Try opening the cabinet directly over the oven ( you may need a step ladder to see the mounting hardware) and look near the front of that cabinet for two screws on the bottom of that cabinet. These two screws go thru the cabinet and support the front of the microwave oven. You may also see the power cord for that mircrowave oven plugged into a receptacle inside that cabinet. Unplug that cord and then begin unscrewing the two screws. ( it's best if you have a helper work with you).. as you unscrew them, the front of the microwave should begin to drop down a bit. Once the screws are removed, you should be able to lift the back panel up a little bit to free the microwave of the wall mounting bracket. Once that is doen, you will be able to remove the microwave. I am assuming that your microwave does not have any vent pipe secured to it. If it does, then you will need to seperate that from the microwave vent on top ( assuming it is venting thru the top) .. These microwaves can be vented in any of 3 ways, thru the top, outthe back or configured to vent back into the room. In any case, you should see ductwork while removing this from the cabinet. Hope this helps you get the job done...

1985 GE Microwave Spacesaver Uninstall


A possible solution:
I was facing the same problem with my (1998?) GE JVM48006. In this models case, the microwave was housed in a support cabinet that was fastened to the wall behind. First, I removed the phillips head screws behind the louvered vent above the microwave. Then, I removed the screws of the slanted bottom panel that give access to servicing the stove top lights (underneath the unit) which were integrated into the support cabinet (separate from the microwave itself). On the right side was an electrical wire harness hidden behind a cover that had to be unplugged (similar to a car wiring harness). Then, I removed (4) 5.1/2 inch hex head bolts that secured the unit through the cabinet above. Now I was able to slide the microwave out towards the front (with some rocking back and forth). All that was left then was to remove the support housing (fastened to the back wall).

Removing Old Built-In Microwave


You did not note your Make and Model. As there are many different types, all I can give you are basic directions.
First make sure the Power Cord is UN-PLUGGED from the wall.

1. Remove the Top Vent Grille Cover. There are screws holding this on, either Three you can see (one on each side and one in the center), or Open the Door and look for screws at the top of the Frame that go Up Into the grille.
2. Look in cabinet above unit for screws that hold unit up. Usually two (one on each side, front), can be more. Remove.
3. Look where Top Vent Grille Cover was removed. There should be a Long Screw or Screw-Type Lock at each( top) corner. These hold the unit tight on the Wall-Mount Plate. Remove. You should have HELP at this point as you will slide the unit forward until it comes clear of the Support Arms.
GOOD LUCK!!

Clean vent


The vent (also known as grill assembly in GE literature) comes off after removing the two screws at the top of the unit and gently sliding the entire assembly to the left about an inch. This will allow the vent to be cleaned of grease, hair, etc., as well as giving some access to the areas behind the vent.

Replace Blub GE Microwave oven Model 1540


On my Spacemaker, access for bulb replacement is on the top of the chassis, which is under the top/side cover. From a diagram I looked at, it appears that yours is similar. If so, you have to:

1. UNPLUG the microwave and then remove the three retaining screws that you'll find on shelf or cabinet above the microwave. Get help; the front of the microwave will be heavy when the screws come loose from the top.

2. Rotate the front of the microwave down a little and lift the rear up about a half-inch. At this point, it is free from the rear mounting plate. Set the microwave on a suitable work surface.

3. Remove the top/side cover piece. To do this, remove all the small screws on the top, the back, and the bottom edges on each side. Then slide cover back about an inch and lift it off.

4. In the middle section of the top of the chassis, you'll then see a cover above the location of the bulb. Lift it up to get access to the bulb.

It's a lame design for an over-the-range unit, but that's the way it is.

Here's a link to a diagram of what it looks like after you get the cover off: http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=jvm1640sj&searchTerm=img_00115013i05&RefineSearch=0&imgMfg=GE
