Question about Sharp Microwave Ovens

Open Question

We have a Sharp R1492 Over the Range microvave (1998 model) and it is impossible to get off the wall. The two top bolts are easy to get to. we took off the hatch at the bottom of the microwave where the grease filters and light are. removed some more screws and nothing. We thought the previous owner may have bolted this from the other side of the wall but but we think he couldn't have. How does this come off the wall?

Try removing the filters beneath the microwave. You'll find a large screw at roughly a 45 degree angle on each side. These screws bolt the microwave to the mounting panel in the rear.

Measurements to replace R 1460 over the range microwave


Almost all over the range micros are 30 inches wide. They did make a few 36 inch models but most are 30. Top to bottom back measurement can be between 16 to 18 inches. Most makes are similar in size. Back wall mounting plate will have to be exchanged since each company has a slightly different design but the wall plate comes with the new unit along with mounting hardware.

remove-ge-spacemaker-800x800.jpgRemove a GE Spacemaker
The GE Spacemaker series of microwave ovens are designed to be installed above an oven range, freeing up counter space in your kitchen. Some of these Spacemaker models are connected to an outside venting system to carry kitchen vapor and odors outside. Other Spacemaker models utilize a ductless system to do this. Removing a GE Spacemaker microwave oven isn't a difficult task, but, because of the size of some of the oven models, it is a two-man operation. Have a question? Get an answer from an appliance repair specialist now!

Things You'll Need

  • Assistant
  • Sharp knife
  • Phillips screwdriver
Instructions
    • 1 Open the cabinet above where the Spacemaker microwave oven is installed. If you see a vent in the cabinet leading to the Spacemaker oven below, your Spacemaker is vented. This vent needs to be disconnected before continuing with removal. Disconnect the vent either by loosening the duct clamps or by cutting the duct tape away with a sharp knife. Pull the vent out of the top of the oven.
    • 2 Have an assistant support the oven from below. Loosen the mounting screws connected to the Spacemaker through the cabinet bottom. Loosen the screws by turning counterclockwise with the Phillips screwdriver.
    • 3 Unplug the Spacemaker from the socket in the cabinet.
    • 4 Continue loosening the screws while your assistant holds the oven in place. Once the screws are removed, have your assistant slowly lower the Spacemaker down by lowering the front face at a 45-degree angle.
    • 5 Feed the power cable for the Spacemaker through the hole in the bottom in the supporting cabinet.
    • 6 Help your assistant slowly pull the Spacemaker forward and out of the mounting brackets on the rear wall. Once the Spacemaker is cleared of the mounting cabinet and rear wall, set it down.
    • 7 Remove the mounting bracket from the rear wall by loosening the screws.

Instalation Instructions for Frigidaire Over the Range Microwave 850 Watt Model #FMT118EPB


HI,

Frigidaire makes several over-the-range microwave models that are all installed in the same manner. To install correctly, you must have at least 45 1/2 inches from the bottom of the top cabinet to the cooking surface of the stove to provide enough clearance for the microwave. The top cabinet must also be at least 30 inches wide and 12 inches deep. Find someone to help you, then follow the steps below to install your Frigidaire microwave.

Things You'll Need:
  • Stud finder or hammer
  • Screwdriver
  • Drill
Instructions

Pull your range away from the wall so you can work comfortably. If this is not possible, cover it with a drop cloth. Find and mark the locations of the studs in the wall behind the range. They will be either 16 or 24 inches apart.

Follow the instructions on the wall template to mark the location of the mounting bracket and the four anchor holes on the wall and the bottom of the cabinet. Drill the anchor holes. Follow the instructions on the top cabinet template to mark and drill the two holes in the bottom of the cabinet.

Attach the mounting bracket to the wall studs using the six wood screws included with your microwave. Screw the toggle nuts onto the toggle bolts and push one through each of the four drilled holes. Screw each toggle bolt until the nut is snug against the inside of the wall.
Pick up the oven with your helper. Plug the oven into the outlet and slide the oven onto the mounting bracket arms. Push the oven back against the wall. Tighten the two screws on the microwave faceplate to fasten the microwave to the mounting bracket arms.
Attach the louver to the top of the microwave with the three provided screws. Insert the two top cabinet screws and washers from the top cabinet into the microwave and fasten tightly.

Take care.

We're trying to remove our sharp R-1420B microwave oven off the wall. We're having absolutely no luck. How do we get this off the wall?


I just removed our Sharp R-1420B microwave. Unplug the microwave. Start by removing the two bolts from the top cabinet (one left and one right). Remove the decorative screws (one left and one right) from the bottom support bracket. I used a plastic bucket sitting on the range as support under the microwave (you may need a couple different sizes). Once the bucket is in place, pull down on the attachment brackets where the decorative bolts were located near the bottom. I used a vise grip to attach and pull them down, and they came down fairly easy. By doing this, the top of the microwave should become detached from the wall. Once you allow the microwave to tilt down far enough (you may need to move the bucket or use a shorter one), you should be able to lift the bottom of the unit off the lower support bracket. Now you can just pull it out from the wall.

How do I remove an over the range Sharp R-1490? I have no user guide and can't find a free one online.


Here's a link to the instructions for mounting the unit on the wall. Take a look at the section that shows 2 arms protruding out into the microwave2_bing.gif where the microwave is secured by a bolt. Have you removed these bolts? If so, the microwave should pull out. Here's the link to the guide:

Remove a whirlpool over the range microwave oven


Jim here. In cabinet above microwave, locate 2 mounting bolts.
Place a box on the stove top to support the microwave once the mounting bolts are removed (you may wish to cover the box with a thick towel or small throw rug).
Procedure:
1. Unplug microwave.
2. Remove both mounting bolts from top of microwave (they secure it to the overhead cabinet).
3. With microwave front angled down onto box, pull some of power cord out of hole (to provide some moving space).
4. With microwave hand supported, remove box from stove top (a second set of hands would be helpful here).
5. HARD PART- detach top of microwave back from wall mounting plate by placing a hand under the bottom rear of the microwave and pushing up. (Wall mounting plate is screwed into the wall behind the microwave and provides both top and bottom support to the back of the microwave.)
6. Lower front of microwave until you can see about a 1-inch clearance between the top-rear of the microwave and the cabinet above it.
7. Firmly lift the microwave straight up and then bring forward. It should be free of the wall mounting plate.

Re: Sharp carousel microwave oven minute display light out


Hello there
To replace the light you will first have to remove the outer shell.
To do this
(1). Remove all of the screws on the back of the microwave that hold on the shell
(2) Remove the screws that are on the bottom.

(3) now the shell should slide off towards the back of the microvave.
Note : this may take a little bit of pressure to get it off ok?

(4) Once the cover is off look towards the fromt of the microwave and
you will see the bulb. now just replace the bulb and reinsert the cover and the screws and you are all done ok? pretty easy ha/
best regards michael

How do I uninstall an old Sharp R-1450 Carousel over the stove microvave oven? I removed the screws from the top that it hangs on and it still won't move. Help and Thanks.


You need to remove the grill above the door to find two more screws that go straight to the back wall plate. They will be on the left and right side. That is the only other way that they mount to the wall.

Good Luck
