Question about Microwave Ovens
This has stopped working and as it is built-in I can't see how to remove the stainless steel surround to get the microwave out to replace it. How do we go about removing the surround so we can remove the microwave?
Ahh, that's one of those British brands I can't get any information about.
If you have the installation instructions, they would tell you how to install it, and it's as simple as reversing the procedure.
BUT maybe it's not too different from US models in the sense that many of its components can be accessed without pulling it from the wall, assuming it's the over the range type.
I would first refer you here:
In most cases, you unplug the oven, then remove the vent grille across the top, then you'll see a screw holding the top of the control panel frame in place.
Once that screw is out, you probably lift up and either swing forward or twist to loosen the control panel.
You should be able to access the fuse, etc. at this point.
There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.
If it's built into a cabinet, then you would have to remove the metal frame covering the area in which the microwave rests.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
