After seeing that a replacement microwave would run at least $250 or more, I researched the problem online which included instructions on how to replace the motor and determined that the repair would be a somewhat easy Fix-It-Yourself project (and a whole lot easier than replacing the entire unit!). I ordered the turntable motor for under $40 at this website, it came within a few days. I printed the instructions from the webpage noted above and took them and a phillips-head screwdriver to the microwave, and I had the repair done in less than 10 minutes with my wife helping hold the bottom panel in place while I put in the 5 screws.

Help other customers find the most helpful instructions.
