Question about Microwave Ovens
I have an old GE JVM130001 under cabinet microwave that no longer works. It was installed before I owned the home.
I can't seem to figure out how to un-mount it so I can replace with a new one. It is flush up to the cabinet above it and a cabinet to the right. Myself and another person diligently inspected all the connecting cabinets and could find only one screw that seem to be connected to the microwave. We removed it and unplugged the electric cord. We have removed faceplates and any part we could to try to find other connecting screws. We have tried tugging and pulling all directions. It doesn't budge. It is snug up to the cabinet on top of it and to its right. I literally cannot see how it is attached to the mounting plate. I am beginning to wonder if was installed with an industrial adhesive. Short of taking the cabinets down does anyone have any suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
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.
