    This is a very, very old micorwave. There are no screws at the bottom of the cabinet above the microwave that secure it to the cabinet. It is attached to a bracket with no visible scews or fastners to unscrew.

Look in the cabinet above the microwave, there should be 2 bolts which go through the bottom of the cabinet and screw into the microwave. remove these 2 bolts holding the unit steady then tilt the unit down and away from the wall.

GE Customer Service is here. They may be able to tell you if there is a "drop-in" replacement available for your model.

Otherwise, you'll have to take down the old bracket then mount another model in the space.

I need to know how to uninstall a GE spacemaker microwave oven model JVM250av001...any one out there know how..?


Put padding on the floor near by for a landing zone. Disconnect the power in the cabinet above. There are two screws in the upper cabinet that support the front. There is a wall plate that supports the back. When the two front screws are removed you will need to be supporting the microhood or it will fall. A strong assistant is nice to have. I like to have the stove out of the way so I can get under the microwave to support it. Once the front two screws are removed, tip the front down, pull the cord out of the upper cabinet. Then lift the back slightly to remove it from the channel on the wall bracket. Set it down Done.

TRYING TO TAKE MICRO OFF THE WALL AND IT WON'T BUDGE. NEED INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS


There are two phillips head screws holding the unit in from the top and a slotted bracket on the wall or cabinet back. Usually you can remove the screws from the cabinet directly above the unit. Support the microwave from the front while removing the screws. CAUTION ! Use two people! While holding the unit level,lift up underneath the rear of the microwave to release it from the slotted bracket in the back and bring the microwave straight out.

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.

1985 GE Microwave Spacesaver Uninstall


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).
