Open the microwave and remove the glass turntable and rotating ring assembly. Close the door and flip the unit upside down. Remove screws that are used to attached the bottom cover of the microwave (you will not be able to remove one of them because it is a brad or some other type of screw...no worries...not necessary to remove). Remove one screw that holds the synchronous motor in place and unplug it. Plug in the new one, align it with the notch and screw hole and re-insert the screw that holds the synchronous motor in place. Re-attach the screws that hold the bottom in place and turn the unit right side up. Inserted new rotating ring assembly onto stem of new synchronous motor. Put the glass turntable back in place. Plug in the unit and wait about 15 seconds for it to get to the point where the message on the display instructs you to set the time. After you do that, you are ready to test the unit.
