I need the instructions for the Maytag MMV6178 to mount it above my new stove instead of having it sit on the counter. It is 4 years old and I can't find the manual. Thank you! Joan

How do i remove a over the stove microwave?


On a 1-10 scale- this is a 2.
place a cardboard box on the stove to support the microwave once it is free.
Remove power cord from the outlet in the cabinet over the microwave.
In the cabinet over the microwave, locate the 2 mounting screws.
Loosen each one about 6 turns- the microwave should drop down in the front by about 1/2 inch.
Once loose, you can remove both screws completely and allow the front of the oven to rest on the cardboard box.
While supporting the front of the microwave,have a helper remove the cardboard box.
Tricky part...while supporting the front - angled slightly down, lift hard under the rear of the microwave and pull toward you.
Have a helper feed the power cord through the upper cabinet bas as you bring the microwave toward you and slightly down.
Place the microwave on the counter- with a towel in place to prevent scratching the counter.
remove the rear-wall mounted support bracket.
Done

Can you put and over-the-counter microwave over a stove?


Yes, that is what they are made for, As long as it has a vent that can be used to vent the smoke from cooking it can be mounted over the stove. Normally the bottom of the microwave should be mounted 16" to 19" above the stove top. The microwave must have a vent with a blower motor in order to be used above a stove top. Most have a thermal switch that will turn the microwave vent on once the temperature reaches a set point.

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.

My maytag over the oven microwave just died;


most likely the power supply in the microwave is gone. the microwave die probably it is over the oven. heat from the stove cause the microwave to heat up and cold off more than it is on the counter.
counter microwave has fan and air slot in the rear. it keep the motor and microwave cool, and there nothing else to keep it hot. but the over the oven, the only ventalation is from the top. and with the added heat from the stove top and oven.

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.

Maytag Microwave Power Outage - Model MMV5000BAB


Found this under GE instead of Maytag, but can answer for you here.

It may be the internal fuse, but more likely it is the thermostat on the magnetron.

Maytag Microwave Power Outage - Model MMV5000BAB


It's almost certain that your magnetron has failed and/or thermostat which is mounted on it. Fist, unplug the oven from the pwer. Then open the door and remove the stirrer cover in the ceiling of the oven. Look for any dark brown burns, charred spots, or "rusty" looking areas. This would indicate that the waveguide has burned, which means the microwave needs to be disposed of. If it passes that test, I'd say the magnetron and/or thermostat area bad.
