Over a period of a year or so, our over the stove microwaive oven started sounding like a thrashing machine every time we turned it on and got progressivly worse. The repair service wanted nearly half the cost of the appliance to just come out to take a look. I removed the oven from the wall cabinet, removed the cover and discovered that the cooling fan blade had come loose from the motor shaft and was hitting the casing. I ordered the fan motor assembly from you folks, replaced the faulty fan, and the problem was resolved at about one half of the cost of a service call.
