One of two things has happened here. Either some sticky substance has your microwave stuck to the counter. If that is the case just find a long object which will slide part way under it and pry it loose.

OR, the cabinet above has settled and is resting on the top of the microwave. If that is the case, empty out that cabinet and the microwave may slide out.

if the problem is something else, get back and tell me more.

Sharp 1754 over range. Why can't I remove it?

Your microwave oven probably was installed with minimal clearance so tilting it forward for removal is not possible. Your only alternative may be trying to pull it straight out or leaving it as permanent kitchen d?cor.

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.

The 5-digit number above is not a complete model number.

If you can post the full model number I can probably give you a link to the explode view, or you can find it here: (the 3 is correct)

Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.

You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.

Many models use one halogen lamp to illuminate the cooktop and another to illuminate the cavity. You must not touch them with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Opening light holder over stove.

According to the diagram for the model JVM1640SJ001, it has a screw in it, and then the opposite side should lift away. If you have a different model, you can enter the exact model number and find an exploded view diagram at GE's parts Web site here:
