Microwave removal 2002 Adventurer 32V

The convection baking feature on our microwave quit working. No gas oven so we really need it. 2002 Adventurer 32V. Panasonic still makes the same, but upgraded, model so I was planning on replacing it. Can't figure out how to remove it. I removed the two screws above it in the electrical cabinet thinking it would just tilt down on the rear attachment plate typical to any home above-the-range microwave/vent fan. No Luck. Found two screws underneath fixing it to the back mounting plate. Nothing. Pulled the electrical panel looking for more screws further back, no luck, just a big mouse nest. I am thinking the whole thing needs to lift up to disengage it from upper and lower mounting tabs on the rear mounting plate. But removing all of the trim and cabinet above to do that is also a mystery, although I did find 6 long screws holding a steel bracket to the ceiling. Any ideas?

Watch some Panasonic installation videos, they will show how it is mounted.

Thanks Ray, as much as I watch YouTube videos, I should have done a search there. Also would have helped if I had got the manufacturer correct, it is a Sharp oven. I found this video which should allow me to go to the storage unit and give it another go. Home Depot can get me the replacement 18 years later. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Sharp-1-...1LSY/308703263

We just replaced ours on an 04 33V. It takes 2 people as it has to be pulled forward and then it will start to drop. It's very tight so it takes some effort.

The new oven will come with a new back plate of slightly different design. It mounts using the same screw holes as the old back plate. Everything fit like a glove. All holes and mounting screws in the same location new and old.

Got a new one ordered from HD. Sharp Model # R1881LSY. Somehow when looking for the attachment screws, we missed the 12" long ones at an angle that come up from the bottom. Saw them on the video. Amazing how many of these are purchased from the big box stores or Amazon to go back into a MH for replacement.
