I think there are only three very long bolts that can be used to attach this microwave to the cabinet floor or shelf.
Grease, paint, varnish all can make the case stick to the cabinet. You might try running a putty knife or scraper around all the exposed edges keeping the top bolts in place so it will not fall down.

We have a Gallery Frigidaire series "professional" model and I encountered the same issue where it would tilt forward but not come of wall. Ours had three long bolts thru top cabinet after removing them it tilted but would not come out. I could not find any levers or other bolts holding it to bracket/wall. Turned out it was just the electrical cord routed tightly though upper cabinet that was holding it once we fed slack thru hole it came right down. Hope this helps, Bill C from Babylon NY
Typically there is a metal mounting plate screwed to the wall and when you take the screws out of the cabinet above it it will tilt forward toward you and then you have to lift it off of some metal tabs that are on the bottom of that mounting plate. Lift up and pull away from the wall and let the cord pull out of the hole in the bottom of the cabinet. Good luck. I usually do that by myself and hook one arm under it and lift it up, but probably better with two people.
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.
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
It is much easier for two people to remove the microhood. If attempting alone, please move the range out so you can get under the micro to support the weight. If the range stays in place, protect the top from damage. 1. make a landing site to the side to protect the floor when putting the micro down after removal. 2. Disconnect the power cord in the cabinet above. 3. loosen the two screws in the bottom front corners of the cabinet above. When removed the front of the micro will drop, be ready for the weight. Busy times, tools in hands microwave coming down in front. 4. tilt the front down. pull the cord out of the upper cabinet. 5. with micro still tilted down in front, lift the back of the unit upward to free it from the wall plate. 6. remove the fasteners in the wall plate and remove. Congrats, begin celebration.
There are 4 bolts or should be 4 holding the microwave top to the cabinet. Open the doors to the upper cabinets and you should see the bolt heads unplug the microwave unscrew the bolts while holding the microwave. After the bolts are out tilt microwave towards you and pick up from the bottom next to the wall to remove oven from mounting plate and thats it.
Remove everything from the inside of the microwave, (such as glass tray). Unplug the microwave, probably in the cabinet above. There are two screws in the cabinet above the microwave, near the front, that supports the front of the microwave. The back is hooked on a mounting plate attached to the wall behind it. An assistant is a good idea though this can be accomplished alone. It is best to move the stove out, if you are going to try alone. Please be carefl there is considerable weight to support here. Support the front of the microwave while the two screws are removed in the cabinet above. Slowly tilt the front of the unit down until you can pull the cord out of the bottom of the cabinet. With the front still tipped down, lift the back from it's support and remove it.
should only be two phillips head screws in the grill holding it.tilt top out first and lift out. if the metal above is smashed down on grill the screws thru the bottom of upper cabinet need to be loosened,< not removed just loosened > and this should help. Some models slide one way or the other to release tabs also.
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.
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.
