I ordered the part on Thursday and received it the following Tuesday morning.
Taking the cover off the bottom of the microwave was really the biggest part of getting this done. There are a couple of special screws on the back that a regular screwdriver won't fit into, but I got them off with a pair of needle-nose pliers.
Unplugged the motor, took out one screw, lifted off the bushing inside the oven and just reversed the process to install the new motor. Piece of cake!
Putting the cover back on is the most time-consuming part, do it in the right order and finesse it.
Food is going quietly around now!
