The job was very simple, remove the bottom plate of the microwave which is four screws and it exposes the motor. There are two screws which hold the motor in place that you access from inside the unit. Remove the two screws being carefull not to lose the gasket that is in between the motor and the bottom of the unit. Set the new motor in place being sure to add the gasket to the new part and run the two screws to the new motor and tighten! It don't get any easier than that! Also do not forget to plug the motor back into the female socket before attaching the bottom plate!
