Question about Microwave Ovens
I just got my Whirlpool MH7100 off the wall. It was a bit of a hassle. I could not find a proper manual online at Whirlpool, but I guess since my unit was manufactured in 1993, who can blame them? Was the Internet even around in 1993?
There were 2 obvious bolts to remove above the microwave, these were found by opening the cabinet above. The next step was the hard one. Even after these were removed, the microwave would not lean forward so that it could be removed from the rear brackets. To get it to lean forward, I had to partially remove and partially break (i think) the vent for the exhaust fan. This revealed what looked like a very large screw with a regular head, one on each side. Once I unscrewed both of these, I was able to lean it forward and get it off the rear brackets.

The installation guide will show you how it is installed and you can download that here:
If that link's a problem, just look it up under the Owner Center section here: http://whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp

I had a MH7100 from 1993 whose magnetron finally died. I used the installation guide referenced in the first solution and worked backwards. It wasn't all that clear because the guide doesn't illustrate some of the things that would be obvious if you were installing it. The steps are
1) remove the plastic vent grille (three screws) so you can see the two long threaded rods that secure the oven to the wall at the top - there is one on each side and they are just long metal rods with a screwdriver slot on the outer end and threaded at the back. The mounting plate behind your oven has brackets that these screw into
2) remove the two screws that go through the cabinet above the microwave and hold the oven up against the cabinet frame
3) with your helper supporting the bottom front of the oven, unscrew the long rods from each side
4) let the front of the oven tilt down enough that you can lift the back edge up from the mounting "hooks" at the bottom rear, and you have your oven off the wall!
