Question about Microwave Ovens
I've already unscrewed the four bolts that attach the microwave to the cabinet above, but the microwave doesn't budge. What can I do?
I think there are only three very long bolts that can be used to attach this microwave to the cabinet floor or shelf. Grease, paint, varnish all can make the case stick to the cabinet. You might try running a putty knife or scraper around all the exposed edges keeping the top bolts in place so it will not fall down.

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.

Remove the face plate above the door. You will see two bolts where you can use a screwdriver to turn them (unlock them). Those bolts go all the way to the back of the microwave. Once you have turned them (you do not need to remove them), you will need to remove the one - three screws that come in from the cabinet above. You may have to jar it loose if it still stuck.

Hello,On the front of the microwave above the door is a louvered panel. You need to remove the panel ( usually it just pulls straight off ) and inside on the left you will see a metal rod that's bent 90 degrees. That is the lock handle. While lifting on the front of the microwave pull that handle out to release the lock. The front of the microwave will tilt down, you may have to help it start tipping. Once the microwave is tipped down you have to lift the back that is against the wall to unhook it from the wall mounting panel. Be careful to feed the power cord through the cabinet hole as your lowering it. Good luck and let me know how this works.
