Removed mesh filters from fan inlet (to clean). Removed 6 philips screws. THis allowed the bottom panel holding the light assemblies to hinge down exposing the floor of the microwave and the drive motor. Removed the connector from the drive motor and the the two screws holding it to the floor. Used the opportunity to clean this area greasy from cooking oils and such. Put in new motor rotating the glass plate in the microwave until the drive shaft located on the turntable. Attached the two screws holding the motor in place using a magnetc screwdriver. Swung the light panel back in place and put back the 6 screws. Replaced the cleaned mesh filters. Checked the unit out with a glass of water. Voila - it was fixed.
