Question about Sharp R-1491 Microwave Oven
I'm trying to remove a Sharp R-1491 microwave. I have removed the 2 screws that go through the cabinet above the unit, but cannot get the unit to come out. I cannot see anything else holding the unit in place.

Hi there - just figured out how to get mine out. Here is what I did. There are two screws at the top under the faceplate. There is brace on each side with 2 screws on the bottom and one facing out. Remove the two that face out. Next look under the unit and there is a brass looking cover with 2 more screws. Mine had writing on it about servicing professionally. Remove that two screws, the two power connections and the unit should slip right out.

First of all, what are the symptoms? Please reply back and I'll be happy to share my thoughts.
Many parts can be accessed without removing the oven from the wall by just removing the control panel.
You need to be sure the cord is unplugged, then you remove the vent grille that runs across the top.
Then you'll see a screw holding the control panel in place. Once that screw is out, you can lift out and out carefully to separate the control panel form the chassis.
If you pull any wires off the control panel, mark and/or photograph them first to be sure you get them ALL back in the right place.
There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

We regularly repair the circuit boards of microwave which are hit by storm surges, etc.
This repair usually runs $39.95 to $64.95, depending on if we have to replace the low power transformer. I just thought I'd mention this if you're interested.
But if you've decided on replacing it, the installation manual should be helpful in removing it from the wall. See it here.
