Removing microwave surround

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?

    This doesn't actually tell me how to remove the trim/surround around the microwave. It is built into a cabinet. Thanks for trying.

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.

Be safe.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

    Usually there are visible screws in the trim pieces. If not, they may be held in place with hidden clips. Sorry if I missed the mark.

Bosch hmt 845k microwave oven

If for some reason you don't still have the installation instructions, their support site should allow you to either download or order a set.
If you can't find their site, try the dealer from whom you purchased the oven.

I seasoned my new stainless steel skillet in the oven now I have built up oil stuck to the sides inside the skillet. How can I remove this without damaging the stainless steel finish? HELP!

You only need to season a cast iron skillet, not stainless steel. Soak it in hot soapy water and use something like a mister clean pad to clean it.

Have a 12 year old kitchenaid Superba stainless steel built in microwave. I suddenly stopped and "door' lights up on display. Door is shut hear clicking by left side may be a latch issue. How do you fix?

Hi - it is 12 yrs old so parts may not be available for it.

If its a door problem, then its really a door latch switch or switches that has failed. Time involved in removing case, then switches then checking them all then finding replacements at ?? cost is uneconomic.
Please consider getting a new machine - probably use less power, have more features and work a darn sight better than this old one.

GE PEB1590 microwave oven. Interior light burned

Remove the screws from around the rear of the oven and slide the cabnet off to the rear. You should be able to access the bulb from here.
WARNING: any time you work on a microwave you have to be careful of the capacitor. Unpluge the microwave and discharge the capacitor with a large screwdriver with a plastic handle.
Be careful.

How to clean GE Advantium???

Get a stainless steel "brillo pad" at the grocery store.

When you get home ... put a microwave safe container with water inside it ... in the oven. do not heat for more than 2 minutes!!!!! The resultant steam will soften the gunk. Use the stainless steel cleaner pad gently to remove the goop.

I hope this helps you
