I looked at some general Microwave repair videos to gain confidence. Took off the cover, tested fuse, and found it was good. Tested heat sensor and found it was bad. You just remove the sensor from the plastic clip and wires. the wire connections have tabs. Push down on the tabs to slide out the wire. Found instructions inside the cover in an envelope that described how to access the Turntable motor. Snipped metal tabs and removed a screw to access and remove the motor. Ordered parts and installed in reverse order. After a week the microwave still works great.
