Question about GE Microwave Ovens
I put it up, but I have slept since then. It was used when I bought it, so there was no paperwork. I found the install template and instructions online. Everything seems to indicate that it should just swing down once the top bolts are out, but no luck. I have a replacement and was hoping to salvage this one without too much damage so I can sell it.
Remove a GE Spacemaker
The GE Spacemaker series of microwave ovens are designed to be installed above an oven range, freeing up counter space in your kitchen. Some of these Spacemaker models are connected to an outside venting system to carry kitchen vapor and odors outside. Other Spacemaker models utilize a ductless system to do this. Removing a GE Spacemaker microwave oven isn't a difficult task, but, because of the size of some of the oven models, it is a two-man operation. Have a question?

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Remove the face plate above the door. You will see two bolts where you can use a screwdriver to turn them (unlock them). Those bolts go all the way to the back of the microwave. Once you have turned them (you do not need to remove them), you will need to remove the one - three screws that come in from the cabinet above. You may have to jar it loose if it still stuck.

SOURCE: I have a Ge spacesaver
I assume you also have the wall mount plate with your oven.
That wall mount carries the bulk of the ovens weight and you normally do use the long screws to bring the front of the oven up to the bottom of the cabinet above the unit. Filler blocks made to fit and to the correct thickness ( to fill the gap between the bottom of the cabinet and the top of the oven) are usually made so that the oven 'nests' snuggly to the underside of that cabinet. Without templates to get holes properly lined up.. they aren't that easy to locate the clearance holes in that cabinet. You can get user manual and installation details at this GE website..
Hope this helps..

SOURCE: Replace OTR Microwave
Thanks for responding. It is a EWave KOT-152UW. I think EWave is part of Magic Chef. I think it is the door switch. When I opened the microwave, the circuit breaker tripped. I reset the circuit breaker, and it worked for several days, but the last time, the microwave went dead. The reason I want to use the same bracket is it has through the wall (horizontal) venting to the outside, and I am not keen on trying to cut more holes.
