Two long diagonal screws you get at by removing the grease filters.

Your spice rack may have a false floor screwed down, and once you remove that, there 'may' be screws going straight down into the top of the oven box.

Remove the long diagonal screws first. If the top front of the oven starts lowering as you are unscrewing these, that is probably the only screws you have.

I just changed mine out, so have vivid memories! After undoing the two long screws, still wouldn't come loose. Finally found a screw in both side walls.
Some have found screws in the cabinet above.

Good luck with the search.

Mine had screws in the top too.

Be sure you another person there to help. That baby is heavy and bulky.

What problem are you seeing with it?

Just changed mine out. Exact same model. Two foot long screws from the bottom. Take the filters out. Then look in those areas up against the cabinet walls. Side walls that is. There were three small wood screws through each side,

There are no screws on the top. That spice rack can come down and the space modified for larger storage. Once my coffee kicks in I will take some pictures.

To lower the thing I placed a board on the counter and a very small floor jack to support the thing. It is not extremely heavy but having to reach forward makes it tough.

The unit tilts forward and then you lift it just 1/2 inch so the rear comes off a lip. Gently let it down.

Before you buy a new one note that the left side door must open against the refer wall. So the hinge cannot take up any space along the left side. The existing unit has the door inset just the right amount,

Surprisingly I found the exact same model and so did not have to deal with the back plate. In years past I had already converted the microwave to vent out the back which was a great mod. Not difficult but took some time.

I just changed ours last month. The old one was 12 years old and we use it multiple times a day.

Instead of putting those little screws along each side back in I built a small square of wood and stained it to match. The wood sits under each side/bottom.

As for the space above the unit we found these amazing little slide out that hold a ton of spices and now they don't jump out when traveling and it is so easy to pull a tray out and find the spice needed.

The led lights were replaced because the old ones were yellowed and some were out. These things are a bit too bright but sure light up that dark area.

Gonna add one more thing if you are still hanging on. We do not use our gas stove. We use the induction plates and have worn out two of them. We still have two because they let you cook anywhere you want. They cool in seconds and just cannot start a fire from something falling in flames.

I hope this helps. Oh yeah, Bought the Microwave online at Home Depot. Took a week to get so we used a counter top unit. What a pain.

Yeah, the new lights are a bit bright. Great while working there, not so great while sitting away. Haven't decided what to do. I love having the led's inside the cabinets and even the spice rack area is lit. I think a 3/8x38 painted piece of aluminum in along the front edges of the led's will do the trick. I did that for the lights along the spice rack rail and that works great.

In cabinets where it is hard to install the led's I have battery operated motion lights. Sure helps. I have a motion detector and a long string of lights in the bedroom closet and one in the storage bay area.
