Question about Microwave Ovens
Need info on how to remove old built-in microwave. Cannot seem to access screws on front vent cover.
You did not note your Make and Model. As there are many different types, all I can give you are basic directions.
First make sure the Power Cord is UN-PLUGGED from the wall.
1. Remove the Top Vent Grille Cover. There are screws holding this on, either Three you can see (one on each side and one in the center), or Open the Door and look for screws at the top of the Frame that go Up Into the grille.
2. Look in cabinet above unit for screws that hold unit up. Usually two (one on each side, front), can be more. Remove.
3. Look where Top Vent Grille Cover was removed. There should be a Long Screw or Screw-Type Lock at each( top) corner. These hold the unit tight on the Wall-Mount Plate. Remove. You should have HELP at this point as you will slide the unit forward until it comes clear of the Support Arms.

I have a old GE spacesver built in microwave. There are no top cabinets and the microwave oven is not screwed into the side cabinets. Only the back plate hardware is holding it in place. I can not move the microwave so it must be really tight against the wall. I want to replace it with a new microwave but again I do not have acess to a top cabinet only side cabinets. Can someone help. Thanks
