How to remove from wall

cabinet above should show three large screw heads going down into oven. When these are remove, the oven reseases. The back bottom edge is hooked on a metal plate so the oven will tilt forward. BE CAREFUL! They're on the heavy side. Remove all things in oven and if you can slide the stove away and stand closer to the wall it will help you carry the weight. I do it all the time, but you have to be ready for the weight. Let me know..........s

My microwave is about 1 and a half years old and it feels like it is not heating things as well as it used to. What could be the problem?

If you measure the temperature of 1/2 litre of tap water. Place it in the oven and heat on full power for 1 minute.
Take it out and measure the temperature again. If the difference is 10 degrees Celcius or more difference the magnetron is healthy if not, it is low emmission and must be treated as a lower output machine.

When i try to weigh something on it it displays 'our2'. And does not work

OUR2 is probably OutZ or Out2, means you have to recalibrate your scale. Refer to your scales manual for instructions on recalibrating, usually you have to turn on your scale, press CAL button, wait till it displays for example 100g, depending on how much your scale can weight, then put that weight, for example 100g on your scale (you can use coins if you don,t have anything else, though be precise as coins can weigh more or less,informationon coins weight can be found in your country national bank site. After you put the weight, it should display OK or PASS, if it's FAIL or the scale turns itself off, it's either broken or the weight is not correct

I have a Kenwood microwave oven which has a plastic film on the inside of the glass door. I have used it like this since new as it was not obvious that a film was stuck on the inside until now as it is...

It should have been removed from new. Much of your foodstuffs could have contained toxic substances that leach from this plastic membrane. But as you are writing to ask then you have survived so far.
Remove it......

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Motor runs but does not heat food

I'd say don't play with your microwave. These things can cause you a nasty injury or death if you don't put them back together correctly.

Service technicians have a tool to measure leaking microwave levels after the put them back together.

Your best choice is to get it professionally repaired if it is an expensive model or just get rid of it and buy a new one.

I don't suppose it is still under warenty.

Maytag microwave removal

If you're talking about an over the range model, it's recommended that two people do it so they can either work together or have one be a spotter.

I'd need the model number to get the weight, but the critical part is when it's up in the air, well above your center of gravity.

You may be able to find the installation instructions on their site at

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
