Question about Microwave Ovens
I'm a kitchen remodeler, and I've seen this problem with Kenmores (so it probably exists with some other brands too. The ones I have seen have the typical bolts through the top, but there's more. The flat mounting plate on the wall has an protruding piece that fits well into the body of the microwave when the unit is slid into place. It has a threaded hole in the end of the extension, and the sheet metal screw or bolt that goes into this is causing your anguish. To access this, you must remove the top front louvers (maybe some other trim plates as well). You'll eventually find the bolt that unscrews with a horizontal screwdriver.

I had the same problem with removing a old Kenmore under cabinet microwave.
You have to remove the grill above the microwave door, three small phillips head screws.Once removed there are two slotted long screws that attatch to the back plate.Unscrew the two screws and the microwave will drop right down like on a hinge.

Hi there - just figured out how to get mine out. Here is what I did. There are two screws at the top under the faceplate. There is brace on each side with 2 screws on the bottom and one facing out. Remove the two that face out. Next look under the unit and there is a brass looking cover with 2 more screws. Mine had writing on it about servicing professionally. Remove that two screws, the two power connections and the unit should slip right out.
