Microwave shakes loose in 17B

Twice. We reattached it the second time using larger fabricated aluminum "L" pieces to allow attachment points in new wood with the attachment of the "L" piece to the microwave with a ridgid bonding agent (I forget what). That bond failed and the screws came lose in the original instillation. Anyone had similar experiences? What were your solutions?

Toothpicks and glue in the screw holes and 2 slices of pool noodle underneath and 2 at the top towards the rear to stop movement. Has not happened since.

In my old A Liner after i've used expandable foaming a can. Even with toothpick and the glue it came loose again.
A small push on the side and top and voila. It was impossible to see the foam with the finition on the cabinet.
