Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Help, We cannot figure out how to get this old microwave off our wall and cannot find the instruction on the GE Website. Any advice would be helpful.
A possible solution:
I was facing the same problem with my (1998?) GE JVM48006. In this models case, the microwave was housed in a support cabinet that was fastened to the wall behind. First, I removed the phillips head screws behind the louvered vent above the microwave. Then, I removed the screws of the slanted bottom panel that give access to servicing the stove top lights (underneath the unit) which were integrated into the support cabinet (separate from the microwave itself). On the right side was an electrical wire harness hidden behind a cover that had to be unplugged (similar to a car wiring harness). Then, I removed (4) 5.1/2 inch hex head bolts that secured the unit through the cabinet above. Now I was able to slide the microwave out towards the front (with some rocking back and forth). All that was left then was to remove the support housing (fastened to the back wall).

Remove the top section on the front of microwave.Its located above the door and extends from one side to the other.Once removed you will have a long screw post on each side to remove .Now from the top ,usual access is through the cabinet above the microwave you will have to remove 2-4 long screws ,one on each side.This removal will lower the micro wave to pull off the wall mount thats keeping it stuck to the wall. Please Rate This !!!

I just removed an old GE JVM46006. Took all day with back and forth checking different sites on the net for help. There were no visible screws on top or sides ( in cabinets), several suggestions were to remove vent at top of microwave to access possible long screws that ran to the back,or a loop/lever that would disengage a rod running to mounting bracket. Also a suggestion to get 2 burley guys and some booze to remove it physically. I finally just started removing screws and clips that were exposed when I removed vent. Removed bottom cover over light ect. The right side came loose first and I had to remove screws for a motor cover under controls. The insides just slide out. I had to unplug wiring harness. The whole shell of the microwave was fastened to the wall, I would never have been able to "muscle" it loose. There were 8 lag bolts and several nails running into the wall studs.

See my solution under "Problem with Hotpoint JE740WY/GY Microwave Oven" for removing a Hotpoint RVM58003, which may have a similar attaching method to this Microwave Hood. The Hotpoint RVM58003 (circa 1984) does not have a separate hanging bracket like modern GE Microwave Hoods do,, therefore the Microwave sub-assembly must be removed to expose the outer frame and rear mounting screws.
