How to remove microwave

We have a 2017 FR3 that got an electrical backfeed from a bad electrical connection. The microwave had a pop sound, the microwave panel does not work but the interior light does. We want to remove the microwave to check the fuse but can't figure out how to remove the microwave to get to it. Can't find any screws in the upper cabinet. There is a metal bracket for the hood below.

Can you provide a picture of the Microwave, bracket and cabinet surround?
Hindsight is 20/20... You need to install a Progressive Industries EMS, this would have prevented this from happening.

Here is 1 of a few RV Microwave removal / install videos on youtube. May not be the same as your microwave, but installs are pretty much done in the same fashion. Check out the others if this one does not help. Just type in RV microwave install, or removal.

I just replaced a Furrion (sp?) over the stove convection microwave that was installed like one in a S&B. I would be happy to explain how if that's what you have.

Thank you. Our challenge is that videos indicate the need to remove screws in the upper cabinet. None are visible. There is a grill on the upper part of the microwave and we're looking for a way to remove that with no luck.

I needed to gently remove the upper trim, so I can reinstall. Gently remove the board above the microwave, so I can reuse it. That exposed the screws to the top of the microwave. Although I had to remove the screws to either side of the board that held the microwave up to remove the screws to the microwave

Thanks. We'll try that.

I posted some pictures in the thread below detailing how to remove the Magic Chef microwave in our motorhome.
It may be applicable to your situation. Good luck!
