How do i remove a JVM1330ww002 microwave


These usually have 2 or 3 screws holding them from the top. It may also be held by a rear bracket. Removing the screws will allow it to tip down and be removed from the bracket. I usually put a cardboard box (or similar item) under these when loosening the screws to prevent it from falling.

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.

The door wont stay shut, the microwave works if I hold the door shut, I think it is the latches


The door is probably out of adjustment. Remove it from the power source.
Remove the top cover and examine the door catch housing. There usually are a couple of screws clamping this in place, loosen the screws, shut the door and tighten the screws.
Finaly, check the hinge for clearance, (No more than 1/10th inch), and adjust as needed.
Hope that helps.

I have removed the mounting brackets from the top of the microwave but still cannot get it to tilt forward for removal. I do not see any levers as suggested in the Solution #1 above. Any other advice?


Did you remove the 3 screws from the top that hold it to the cabinet. Here is a install manual so you know what screws to remove. also make sure the ducting is removed all the wat to tilt micro.

How to get sharp r-1440 disassembled from under


Probably don't need this anymore, but there is another post, which we added to. Hope you had success.
Be sure to unplug first.
It is mounted on a steel bracket which the micro was tiled into place on. The bracket covers the entire area of the wall where the micro sits.

Basically, two screws in the bottom of the overhead cabinet, and two more screws located in the venting area of the microwave (under). Take the vent filter covers off each side, and remove one screw on each side carefully. If you take the fan cover off in the top front, you can see the steel support on the left.

Two people: The micro is then lifted up and off the support slightly, and then tilt forward to remove.

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.
