Microwave/Convection Oven Removal in 2006 Tropical

I have a 2006 National Tropical T350. The GE microwave/convection oven finally quit. Confirmed power is good along with the 20 amp fuse and thermals which all checked out okay. Looks like it is dead and will need replacement. The model is a GE JVM1490SH 01. Does anyone know how this is removed? Also, is there a replacement that will fit the same mounting style to minimize installation difficulty? If anyone has a video, that would be awesome.

2 or 3 bolts through cupboard above, it will tip down in the front then just lift straight up about 1/2 inch and you'll have it, a helper would be helpful, good luck.

I love our GE microwave/convection oven and am dreading the day it dies! Never had a convection oven before and they're great for cooking meat and fish!

You probably have a cabinet above it so with that you will have to remove the floor of that cabinet in order to access the mounting bolts. Then as somebody already said, you need to remove the bolts and left "up" on the back to release it from the back bracket.

Microwave/Convection Oven Removal in 2006 Tropical

Be careful! Iíve installed a fair number of these many years ago when I was building some houses. It weighs right about at 60 Lbs, and itís awkward.
It may help to have prepared something about 10-12 inches high. Like a step stool sort of thing or a smallish support platform about that high. Place this under the micro so that when your assistant pulls that last bolt while youíre bracing everything up, you can just let the unit rotate downward to rest on the platform while you move it or nudge it a bit to get it to separate from that rear wall plate thatís holding it up. Makes life easier, but still really good to have two people.

Thanks all for your help. I was able to remove the microwave by the 2 bolts above it in a tight space. Needed to use a right hand Phillips screwdriver. I found the exhaust thermal fuse had blown and replaced it for $10. I did not want to deal with a replacement oven for fear the mounting would not match up. All is good now.
