Remove everything from the inside of the microwave, (such as glass tray). Unplug the microwave, probably in the cabinet above. There are two screws in the cabinet above the microwave, near the front, that supports the front of the microwave. The back is hooked on a mounting plate attached to the wall behind it. An assistant is a good idea though this can be accomplished alone. It is best to move the stove out, if you are going to try alone. Please be carefl there is considerable weight to support here. Support the front of the microwave while the two screws are removed in the cabinet above. Slowly tilt the front of the unit down until you can pull the cord out of the bottom of the cabinet. With the front still tipped down, lift the back from it's support and remove it.

Uninstall Frigidaire FMV156EMA over range microwave?


If you have removed the bolts in the cabinet above, the unit is hanging down on the range. All you need to do is get a helper and lift the front edge a little bit and then lift the edge at the wall up about an inch and lift it off.

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?

Things You'll Need

  • Assistant
  • Sharp knife
  • Phillips screwdriver
Instructions
    • 1 Open the cabinet above where the Spacemaker microwave oven is installed. If you see a vent in the cabinet leading to the Spacemaker oven below, your Spacemaker is vented. This vent needs to be disconnected before continuing with removal. Disconnect the vent either by loosening the duct clamps or by cutting the duct tape away with a sharp knife. Pull the vent out of the top of the oven.
    • 2 Have an assistant support the oven from below. Loosen the mounting screws connected to the Spacemaker through the cabinet bottom. Loosen the screws by turning counterclockwise with the Phillips screwdriver.
    • 3 Unplug the Spacemaker from the socket in the cabinet.
    • 4 Continue loosening the screws while your assistant holds the oven in place. Once the screws are removed, have your assistant slowly lower the Spacemaker down by lowering the front face at a 45-degree angle.
    • 5 Feed the power cable for the Spacemaker through the hole in the bottom in the supporting cabinet.
    • 6 Help your assistant slowly pull the Spacemaker forward and out of the mounting brackets on the rear wall. Once the Spacemaker is cleared of the mounting cabinet and rear wall, set it down.
    • 7 Remove the mounting bracket from the rear wall by loosening the screws.

Need to replace my power cord. What do i need to remove to get to where it connects?


Well first thing you need to do is open the cabinet doors above the microwave and unplug it wait 15 minutes before you do anything else to allow the Capacitor drain its power. Then you should see 2 screws on cabinet floor above microwave, you might want a second person there to hold the microwave from falling. After screws are out lean the front towards you and lift up on the back as it is sitting on a lip, then set Microwave on a towel on your counter or floor your choice. you then need to remove the screws to the cabinet on both sides and back, you can now replace the cord..... It's not a super difficult job but if you have problems with the weight of the microwave you can always call a professional.

Trying to remove to two long screw holding out of top. still being held in back help


We have a Gallery Frigidaire series "professional" model and I encountered the same issue where it would tilt forward but not come of wall. Ours had three long bolts thru top cabinet after removing them it tilted but would not come out. I could not find any levers or other bolts holding it to bracket/wall. Turned out it was just the electrical cord routed tightly though upper cabinet that was holding it once we fed slack thru hole it came right down. Hope this helps, Bill C from Babylon NY

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.

I can't find bolts or screws that hold the unit in place. I need to remove the microwave in order to install new one.


HI there,

Here's HOW;

  1. Remove the face plate above the door.
  2. There were 2 bolts in which you will need a screw driver to loosen it
  3. This bolts go all the way to the back of the microwave.
  4. You still need to remove the one - three screws that's above of the cabinet. You may have to jar it loose if it still stuck.
Hope this helps.

Let me know for further instructions.

Remove a door on a microwave


I wouldn't remove the door myself if I were you. If you just got the microwave, it should be under a return/replace policy, or a warranty. I would recommend returning the microwave and getting a sturdier one, as you don't know if the problem exists for all microwaves in that series, and most stores don't allow the replacement to be return/replaced.

Removing under cabinet GE microwave


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.
