How to remove old GE microwave oven…

Got a now-broken, 20-year-old microwave oven that I ‘m
trying to remove. It was made by General Electric and
says “ GE SpaceMaker ” ( or SpaceSaver ? ) on the outside.
I ‘ve installed early brands before, so I THOUGHT I could
digit out how this old GE is being held into place ( it ‘s a 30-inch
wide under the cabinets over the stove exemplar ).
I ‘ve take the upper bezel and the lower panel down and looked
around inside with a flashlight, but it is distillery UNCLEAR merely
what is holding it in place.
Seems like possibly the 3-sided outermost jury ( rather than
fair a backplate ! ? ) is holding it in space. It may ( or may not )
have some kind of ‘slide out on a traverse ‘ thing … something visible
inside sort of looks like that, but I ca n’t find any latch-release
or anything for that.
so, rather than me SPECULATE further : Can person tell me
decidedly how this damn thing can be de-installed ?
TIA …
Dave

Here’s a typical installation nowadays:

Even though it is old, is there any chance that GE has the installation
instructions available?

Look inside the cabinet above it. Are there 2-4 screws driven through the buttocks into the microwave ?

actually the front panel comes off and you will see where it is attached ( more like hang ) on a hanker screw thing through the back bracket.Only found out after I PULLED mine out of the cabinet/wall ______________________ Claudia Totus Tuus

Nope. The ‘long screw-like thing ‘ ( which goes up at an lean ) is what some of the Japanese brands use. But, the GE does NOT have any such animal .

(That would be a non-standard approach, I think. This one is no doubt
done the recommended way, which is what I can NOT figure out.)

Nope. I thought of that already, and looked. ( That would be a non-standard access, I think. This one is no doubt done the recommend way, which is what I can NOT figure out. )

I had one of these and mine had two slotted screw heads behind the grill
above the door, these were long bolts that screwed into a steel plate bolted
to the wall. The bottom of the oven was hooked over a lip on this plate.
CARFULL… when the two screws(blots) are removed the oven will fall
forward, it must be supported while doing this.
Good luck.

Put one in not excessively long ago. There is a bracket that is attached to the binding wall. The back of microwave hangs from the bracket and then there are two bolts that go through the cabinet that screw into the top front man of the unit. MLD

I agree with this. I remember that I needed my neighbor to help me hoist it onto some rear bracket while I screwed in the 2 long screws down through the top cabinet into the top of the microwave. identical heavy … I you used a jack or something under it, you might be able to do single-handed … howard in santa claus rosa

The OLD GE Spacesaver microwaves ( the ones with forest grain front on the front man and dials ) are installed in a ? shelf/case ? like assembly. The microwave actually slides into this shelf/case, rather than having a tilt down manner mounting plate.
Remove the top two screws in the cabinet above, then remove the top vent screws. There are two hex steer screws ( in Each corner ) behind the top release that hold the microwave to the shelf/case.
Next, remove the screws underneath the microwave. The buttocks of the microwave has a hinge on the bet on and will fair drop down.
Remove the two screws that hold the electric cover. Disconnect the electrical ( the electrical plug is separate of the shelf/case ).
The microwave should now slide out revealing the mounting prison guard rust hold the shelf/case assembly to the wall .

some models have a safety latch that must be disengaged. after you take the bolts out you need to remove the louvers at the top
there will be a small lever that you pull to release the safety latch
CAUTION, when you pull the pry, be prepared to support the weight of the oven.
If you have not done it before, I would call it a 2 person job.
There is a YouTube show this.

Did you ever get your microwave removed ? My old JVM140 is stuck. We removed the 2 screws from the cabinet above and the 2 very hanker screw from behind the top grill. I do n’t see a safety latch, but something is holding it..
