The grill cover to my above range microwave had been damaged by the original installers. It was still in good enogh condition to work until recently when it got pulled on while cleaning. I had no idea what the part was called, so when this web-page had pictures, I still found it easily. The part arrived within days!!! It was the wrong color. but when I called, the lady was super nice and the new part arrived in days. Even with the mistake it took less than a week!!!! I couldn't have been happier. And now it's better than when I got bought the house new!!!

Unpacked the vent grille and walked to the microwave. Lifted grille up to the vacant space. Applied a small amount of pressure while pushing the grille into place. Walked to the refrigerator to fetch part one of an Egg Nog beverage, then to the cupboard for the best part of the Egg Nog beverage. Stirred ingredients and continued with decorating the Christmas tree. Voila!

Microwave Turntable Won't Rotate

  • Customer: Steven from Sacramento CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 6 of 12 people found this instruction helpful
I turned off the power to the oven at the breaker. I then removed the side trim pieces by removing the screws located behind the lower oven door. I removed the plastic trim pieces above and below the microwave oven and removed the control panel and slid it into the opening above the microwave. I located the two screws securing the microwave into the frame and began sliding it out. I had to disconnect a small wiring harness and two wires from the microwave that were attached inside the opening above the microwave. The microwave section was the easily slid out, turned on it's side where the turntable motor was accessed by removing the access panel. I pulled the old motor, checked resistance and it matched the new motor. I then checked the old motor by applying 120V to it and it ran FINE! I thought I had the wrong part, but decided to install the new motor anyway. I did, secured the access panel and replaced the microwave in the frame. I reconnected the wires and secured the control panel and tested the microwave...and the turntable works!

Remove the microwave from its mount above the stove. Remove the sheet metal top/sides piece. Pop the control panel loose to allow access from the front. Remove more screws that will allow the small inverter to be removed and the big inverter housing to be wrangled loose enough to remove the big inverter. Pop the inverter cooling fan from its mount. Disconnect wires and remove screws to remove big inverter. Install new inverter in reverse process.

Thanksgiving night, I found a rather large crack in the grille and it wouldn't stay in place. I placed the order for the replacement grille on Friday and received the new grille Monday. It just snapped in place, no tools necessary. I had contacted the Sears parts replacement department and all I got was attitude from the parts "help" desk. I'm glad I placed the order with Parts Select, the cost was cheaper and shipping was faster. I won't hesitate to use Parts Select the next time I need a part for any of my Whirlpool appliances.
