The microwave is installed above my gas range, and has a sheet that holds the vent screens and light bulb cover. I removed 3 screws holding this sheet in place at the front edge closest to me. The edge furthest from me (closest to the wall) had grooves that the sheet slid into. I could not set the sheet down on the counter as the electrical wire was anchored to the sheet and too short to reach the counter below. I used some jars to prop up the removed sheet so that there would not be any strain on the electrical wires. The wires connected to the motor with a bracket that was removable by hand. The old motor was mounted with one screw and a small arm that slid into a groove at the bottom of the microwave. I installed the new motor with the screw. At first I missed the groove and it was kind of crooked. I immediately detected and corrected my error . I made sure the piece inside the microwave that turns the turntable was aligned on the motor shaft. I closed it up and was delighted to see my food turning again!
By the way, the microwave is actually an Ewave, made by MC Appliance Corp., the makers of Magic Chef. It came with the house in 1994.
