GE Profile over the Range Microwave


I have the above mentioned microwave installed currently. I installed it about 7 months ago. It went kaput and I found another identical one on Craigslist. Now I am trying to take the old one down to put up the new. I have taken out the 4 holding bolts on the top, removed the metal piece that attaches to the vent and am still having a hard time getting the thing down. This particular mounting bracket as prongs that point up so essentially the microwave sits on them. Any help or tips getting the microwave down would be appreciated.

Try tilting it forward. I think the bottom hooks into the backplate.

The bottom does hook into the backplate. I tried tilting it forward but maybe I didn't put enough oomph into it. I didn't think it pose this much of a challenge to get down. Thanks for the idea.

I have a GE and if I remember correctly, you have to tilt and lift. You can try looking online for the install manual and reverse the steps.

Tilt and lift yes. Be careful if it is convection, they are very heavy...
