JT140,

 

I have mounted a cople of these devices over the years and encounter this problem .

If the microwave is lapping over the tile, don't rremove the tile, but shim up the lower area with a piece of plywood cut to that space. This will give you an even plain upon which the microwave will sit. Your mounting bracket will then have an even piece of plywood through which the anchors can be mounted. You will want to mark where your studs are so that your anchors will have a solid mount into the studs.

 

Hope this has helped.
