Inside the cabinet above your microwave, usually you will have 2-3 lag bolts screwed through the bottom of cabinet into the microwave top. After these are removed, you will have to pick the bottom of the microwave up and tilt outward and up. The back of the microwave is attached to a bracket on the wall and this is why it has to be tilted and pushed up off the bracket. Get an extra hand for this, it's not heavy just awkward. When installing a new one the old bracket will work with the new one.

I need to remove a spacemaker microwave from over the stove. I have removed all the screws that I can see and it's still rock solid. Suggestions?


As I recall the only 2 or 3 long screws that you need to remove are in the cabinet directly above the microwave. You will also, of course need to unplug the microwave above it as well. Is should now hinge down, as the back edge hooks onto a mounting plate on back wall.

Can you put and over-the-counter microwave over a stove?


Yes, that is what they are made for, As long as it has a vent that can be used to vent the smoke from cooking it can be mounted over the stove. Normally the bottom of the microwave should be mounted 16" to 19" above the stove top. The microwave must have a vent with a blower motor in order to be used above a stove top. Most have a thermal switch that will turn the microwave vent on once the temperature reaches a set point.

Stove fire smoke on microwave above stove.what will clean off this smoke residue? we encountered a stove which left a heavy smoke residue on the microwave above. the microwave has a plastic handle and...


Mr. Muscle Kitchen cleaner will remove the smoke. It won't hurt the plastic. Just make sure to either wear rubber gloves or wash your hands soon after cleaning off the smoke residue. It will make the skin on your hands / fingers slick and then dry after your done. Let the cleaner sit for about a minute before trying to wipe off the smoke residue.

How do I remove an old wall mounted Microwave.


I just removed mine this morning and was having the same problem, though mine did have the screws above going into the unit. You may have to pop the front vent cover off to locate the screws going to the wall bracket, if so remove those. Also,there are 2 tabs on the bottom of the wall bracket that the back bottom edge of the microwave slip into, keeping the microwave from being pulled forward. Tilt the microwave slightly forward and push the bottom back edge of the microwave up to clear the tabs. Hope this helps.
