First I would wonder if you really need to remove it from the wall? Many repairs can be done with it still in the wall. If so, installation instructions should be with the paperwork that came with the oven, and that will show you how to remove it. Buit if you don't have that, you would likely remove the grille from across the top. The grille is usually held in place with screws and/or clips. After that is out, there may be a couple of other screws now revealed at the top edge, or there may be a one or more "catches" just under the top edge of the the chassis. I would strongly advise you to have a helper working with you. These can be heavy, and awkward. You might call the GE Answer Center and ask if they can supply you with installation instructions. They're at 800-626-2005 (24 hrs.) Otherwise, you may be able to find instructions that are close enough at a place like Lowe's. They may have some demo models and you can usually ask to look at the manuals.

Be careful when removing this product. If you take the screws out and it still doesn't budge, then it probably has liquid nail or something similar on the top of it. IT WILL TURN LOOSE ON IT'S ON, WHILE YOUR NOT HOME!!!!!! Put the screws back in the top! We took the screws out and couldn't figure out what the problem was....... Went to bed then to work the next day. While we were at work, it turned loose and fell hitting the stove knob and turned one of the eyes on. It caught on fire and long story short................. Now we have a newly renovated home. It cost 28,000.00 to fix the damage!!!!
We bought the same kind of microwave the second time because we thought it was just a one time problem....... this one quit heating also. The repair cost more than a new microwave. That is why we were trying to replace it the first time. We WILL NOT buy another GE!!!

How do I remove a 1991 Roper over the range microwave. There are no cabinets above it that it would be screwed into.


If it is not mounted above, it is most likely attached to a mounting bracket behind the microwave. I would start with removing the vent cover (if there is one) and check for access to screws or bolts on the back side of the microwave. Make sure that you have a friend helping!

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 do I install a replacement Frigidaire over the stovetop microwave - professional series, without removing the cabinet above it? I need to know how to best remove the existing microwave.


Remove everything from the inside of the microwave, (such as glass tray). Unplug the microwave, probably in the cabinet above. There are two screws in the cabinet above the microwave, near the front, that supports the front of the microwave. The back is hooked on a mounting plate attached to the wall behind it. An assistant is a good idea though this can be accomplished alone. It is best to move the stove out, if you are going to try alone. Please be carefl there is considerable weight to support here. Support the front of the microwave while the two screws are removed in the cabinet above. Slowly tilt the front of the unit down until you can pull the cord out of the bottom of the cabinet. With the front still tipped down, lift the back from it's support and remove it.

How do I remove an old wall mounted Microwave.


I just removed mine this morning and was having the same problem, though mine did have the screws above going into the unit. You may have to pop the front vent cover off to locate the screws going to the wall bracket, if so remove those. Also,there are 2 tabs on the bottom of the wall bracket that the back bottom edge of the microwave slip into, keeping the microwave from being pulled forward. Tilt the microwave slightly forward and push the bottom back edge of the microwave up to clear the tabs. Hope this helps.

Removing a Sharp Carosel R 1440 over the stove microwave


you should be able to do this yourself. Do you have an outlet to plug this into, or will you need to hard wire it into your apartment/house wiring/. If the former, then you should be okay. You will need a bracket/plate to mount the microwave to.

Removing Microwave


I just got my Whirlpool MH7100 off the wall. It was a bit of a hassle. I could not find a proper manual online at Whirlpool, but I guess since my unit was manufactured in 1993, who can blame them? Was the Internet even around in 1993?
There were 2 obvious bolts to remove above the microwave, these were found by opening the cabinet above. The next step was the hard one. Even after these were removed, the microwave would not lean forward so that it could be removed from the rear brackets. To get it to lean forward, I had to partially remove and partially break (i think) the vent for the exhaust fan. This revealed what looked like a very large screw with a regular head, one on each side. Once I unscrewed both of these, I was able to lean it forward and get it off the rear brackets.

There are 3 mounting screws that anchor the microwave to the cabinet above it and a bracket on the wall behind it. Once you remove the mounting screws from the top, pull the oven straight out from the front and it will slide off the wall bracket.
