If installed correctly there will be 2 bolts oing down through the upper cabinet and when you take the grill across the top off there should be a lever to pull to release a latch. Recommend there be 2 persons there as it is heavy and has to be lifted off the lip of the wall plate once it is tilted forward after the above steps are done. Good luck...Eric

You need to have studs where the installation instructions specify them.
If they are not there, they will need to be added.
With the weight of these units, proper support is critical, and drywall anchors are not at all sufficient.

I also have a JVM1190 and was baffled as to removal. My very handy brother solved it in two minutes. Above the door and keypad there is a long grill secured by two small squarehead (Robertson) screws. Remove the screws and grill and you will see on either side of the opening a long bolt. They go through to the back of the microwave where the support plate attached to the wall. The bolts have a slot in the middle for a flat blade screwdriver. Simply turn the bolt to release from the back plate. Make sure there is a helper underneath as the microwave is fairly heavy. Do the reverse for re-installation.

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.
