I am installing a whirlpool above range microwave model

I am installing a...

I am installing a whirlpool above range microwave model umv1160cs. One of the first steps involves rotating the blower. I can’t get the blower motor to raise up so I can turn it. Any advice will be appreciated.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Bought it today. This is initial install. Model # is umv1160cs.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes. I am working on it now.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I think that’s it. The blower motor is supposed to lift up so I can rotate it. It will not budge even after I have removed the appropriate screws.
