Kitchen Cabinet Removal?

Has anyone removed the upper kitchen cabinet that is to the left of the stove/oven? It’s the one that has the mirrors on it and is part of the slide.

Mine is loose and seems to be mounted with just one bolt as it will “rotate” around that one area. I see no visible bolts. My next move is to start removing shelves and inner walls but I worry that may open a can of worms.

Reason for removing is to delete those mirrors and the tall ones on stationary wall behind it. We are going to put a tile backsplash on the cabinet area then reinstall.

The cabinet location and attachment varies with model, year & floor plan, so you need to be more specific. For example, on my 2004 40V Tradition, the cabinet was one long section from just left of the sink to the end of the countertop, with the microwave mounted over the stove. Yours apparently in in multiple sections.

Good point! Sorry about that. Mine is a 1999 Tradition. It’s the 40TVS The cabinet I am referring to is just left of the stove. It’s the most left cabinet of the slide.

For anyone interested, I managed to get this cabinet removed.
How:
1) took all shelves out. They are stapled in and a quick smack from beneath removes them. I will probably use screws to secure at installation
2) remove the vertical panel just inside cabinet. I found one screw under this panel
3) remove the “floor”, or bottom, of the cabinet. I found one screw going through cabinet straight down through counter top.
4) Looking at corner created by cabinet and slide wall….left aft corner when standing at the stove…and under microwave…there were three screws along that edge that are angled through cabinet and into the slide wall. These are accessed by removing the mirror. Mine were not doing much to hold it in place and pulled off once the other screws are removed (and before removing mirror to know they were there) When re-installing, I am going to add structure to back of cabinet and screw through that into slide wall from inside cabinet rather than under the mirror. We are putting a tile backsplash in place of mirrors.

Having it off made putting wallpaper over the mirrors in that area much easier. It will also make installing the tile easier.

Here is a pic of the cabinet reinstalled. It’s much more secure now.

Not sure why it keeps rotating my pics? Sorry!
