Look in cupboard above the micro. You should see two screws. Take them out and the micro tilts towards you. Lift it off the bracket and you are done. Don't forget to unplug it and feed the power cord down at the same time. Best done with two people.

That'd be a neat trick. There are no cupboards above the microwave in the 378TS. There is no way I can see to access the area above the microwave without going thru the cupboard that is along side the microwave. But, that would entail dismantling the left sidewall of the cupboard. That is why I was asking, in case there was some easy way to get into it, like removing the trim area at the top of the microwave.

I know this is an old post but hoping someone can confirm..

I have the same configuration in my 379XL; no cabinets above the microwave just a 2 inch filler strip.

I am assuming that the only way to access the top mounting screws is to dismantle the side wall of the cabinet to the right where the power cord feeds thru.

Thanks in advance.

Seems as though the magnetron has given up, no heat and a loud humming noise. Anyone else have a similar problem?

Captured from an IGGY post:
The way to remove the microwave from a 378 is like this.
1. The piece of wood above the microwave is just pushed in place.
It is about 2" high and the width of the microwave.

2. You need to remove this wood by pulling it forward. It may have small staples holding it but it will remove.
I know because mine fell out while travelling and saw the microwave brackets behind it.

The two microwave brackets are screwed in by a few screws and when removed the whole microwave will pivet down. Their is a metal wall bracket that has a lip that it pivots on. Better to have 2 people doing this so it doesn't fall and damage stovetop.

Hope this helps explain how to do it.
Good Luck.
