Re: Need to know how to take down this under cabinet...
Two or three screws on the top of this microwave (mc), which are located on the top cabinet. Loose them first. Also the bottom of the mc is attached to a metal edge against the wall. Need at least two men to hold and unload it from the wall.

The megatron tube is not working. The microwave should turn off when the door is opened for safety. If it is still under warranty, return it. If not, you may consider replacing the unit. I know its expensive, but its just taking up cabinet space tonight.
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.
Magnetron is done. This part heats the food. GE microwaves tend to have them stop working quite frequently. They basically make up the majority of the cost of the microwave, so instead of replacing the magnetron, you would be better off getting a new microwave.
