WO-16 A is stuck in the wall...

We have a late 50's or early 60's (a guess) WO-16A Thermador that isn't working. We've had a couple of "professionals" look at it and they can't figure it out. I've decided to try to remove the unit but I can't get it to come out. As far as I can see, there appears to be only four screws on the face that hold it it place but I can't get it out even after removing them. The unit will budge about a quarter inch but that's it. At this point I'm afraid I'm going to bend the face plate or tweek the door hinges if I keep trying. My only next guess is that the electrical conduit is preventing it from coming out but wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas before I go down that road.

Thanks!

Ok here goes. If there are any drawers under the unit take them out and check under the unit to see if any thing like the electridal conduit or other brackets are holding the thing in.

when I got home I looked to see if there was any access from under the oven. NO there is none at least under mine. I thought there might have been.

Thanks, tallpiper... alas... no drawers in mine either.

Still Stumped!
