uninstalling a Goldstar microwave


Hi, I am trying to uninstall a Goldstar microwave over that is mounted on the wall under a cabinet. I removed all screws that I can but somehow the unit does not budge. I removed the 2 screws from the top cabinet, open the front but cannot find what is locking the unit in place.

Any idea would help.
Thanks.
JJo.

right now the fan goes in the kitchen, which is why I want to take it out to change it to venting through the ceiling.

uninstalling a Goldstar microwave


I've installed a couple microhoods and they usually hinge on the bottom of the microwave on the back wall to a metal plate. From memory it only seems as though there were 2 bolts up in the cabinet. Are there possible 4 total or two more in the rear of the cabinet?

Would there possibly be some grease build up that is holding it in place?

I checked and removed all screws but to not avail. Somehow, I think that the oven is locked in the place but since I don't know how, I don't want to pull too hard because I will need to put it back in place after I change the venting system.

I cannot see anymore screws, any levy, anything that can let it go ??????
