Model FMV156DBA. How do I remove from bracket on wall?


You have to push the rear of the unit up slightly to to disengage the bracket hooks from the back of the microwave. Doing all that while not dropping the microwave is the fun part.

Removing unit


To remove, you will need to remove four bolts on the top of the unit.
Unplug it first, then remove the two bolts nearest the wall first. It would help to place something under the front of the unit about two inches shorter, to catch the unit as you remove the front bolts. The bolts are long, so be prepared for a lot of turns. A ratchet helps. The unit will lower in the front as you remove the last bolt. There is a bracket screwed to the wall behind the unit, with a lip at the bottom that holds the back of the unit. After the front has lowered, lift the back up about an inch, and pull the whole unit away from the wall. Remember to pull the power cord out of the cabinet before moving the unit away. Hope this helps.

How to remove Kenmore Quicktouch micro hood


If it's like most above-the-range microwaves, there will be 2 or 3 screws holding it from above, inside the cabinet
While supporting the unit from below, remove screws.
The rear of the unit is supported by hooking onto a bracket that is screwed to the wall behind it.
The rear needs to be lifted, then the unit should pull away from the wall. Requires some muscle.

HOW TO REMOVE A MICROWAVE


I assume you are talking about an "over the range" microwave.There should be 2-3 bolts holding it in from the cabinet above.You probably should have a second person to help.Remove the bolts while holding it up,when the last bolt is removed,lower the front,then lift the rear of the microwave to release it from the wall bracket.

Trying to remove to two long screw holding out of top. still being held in back help


We have a Gallery Frigidaire series "professional" model and I encountered the same issue where it would tilt forward but not come of wall. Ours had three long bolts thru top cabinet after removing them it tilted but would not come out. I could not find any levers or other bolts holding it to bracket/wall. Turned out it was just the electrical cord routed tightly though upper cabinet that was holding it once we fed slack thru hole it came right down. Hope this helps, Bill C from Babylon NY

We're trying to remove our sharp R-1420B microwave oven off the wall. We're having absolutely no luck. How do we get this off the wall?


I just removed our Sharp R-1420B microwave. Unplug the microwave. Start by removing the two bolts from the top cabinet (one left and one right). Remove the decorative screws (one left and one right) from the bottom support bracket. I used a plastic bucket sitting on the range as support under the microwave (you may need a couple different sizes). Once the bucket is in place, pull down on the attachment brackets where the decorative bolts were located near the bottom. I used a vise grip to attach and pull them down, and they came down fairly easy. By doing this, the top of the microwave should become detached from the wall. Once you allow the microwave to tilt down far enough (you may need to move the bucket or use a shorter one), you should be able to lift the bottom of the unit off the lower support bracket. Now you can just pull it out from the wall.

TRYING TO TAKE MICRO OFF THE WALL AND IT WON'T BUDGE. NEED INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS


There are two phillips head screws holding the unit in from the top and a slotted bracket on the wall or cabinet back. Usually you can remove the screws from the cabinet directly above the unit. Support the microwave from the front while removing the screws. CAUTION ! Use two people! While holding the unit level,lift up underneath the rear of the microwave to release it from the slotted bracket in the back and bring the microwave straight out.
