I disconnected the power. Took off the front panel that was held together by two screws. Reviewed the schematic that was inside. Located the switches, saw which lead was burnt. Unscrewed the two screws that held the switch in place, cleaned the connector, and put the switch in and connectors back. Powered the device, tested for cooking/heating functionality. It worked, Closed the front panel

Removed 4 small star head screws from back of microwave, lifted body off, removed blown fuse and replaced with new one (found where cord enters). This model is stainless inside and out and I like it a lot. It is also sold by Daewoo and a few other manufacturers.

Problem would come and go. Found service schematic inside unit. Perform all the suggested tests. One possible solution was the primary interlock switch shown on the schematic and a check found the switch stuck. It would free up some times but would stick again in the open position. Ordered switch which was a simple plug in unit.

1. Removed cabinet screws (10-15?). 2. Removed cabinet. 3. Removed top interlock switch which actually was not defective. The press clip connection appeared as if it had been arcing for quite some time and the corrosion created resistance sufficient to prevent the current from getting through the switch. 4. Replaced switch anyway but broke plastic retaining clip despite every effort not to do so. Reset broken clip with super glue. 5. Reassembled cabinet and appliance is in good working condition.

My part arrived the next day. That was a surprise to receive it that quick.
I removed the lower panel to gain access to the motor. Disconected the 2 electrical leads and removed the 2 screws that held the motor in position. Installed the new motor, reconnected the leads and reinstalled the lower panel. It was a very easy reapair. I took all of 10 minutes to complete.
I will definately use Parts Select the next time I need a repair part for any appliance.
Great service

removed screws from the bottom cover, installed the new motor and reinstalled the cover. The turntable is still not working. wonder if the power supply for that motor is not working. I noticed the internal microwave light glow and then burn out at about the same time as the turn table stopped working. Could that power supply provide power to both the motor and the internal light? can't find the schematics for the location of the power supply so i can test for output power.

Removed 7 screws from microwave bottom panel. Panel swings down exposing the turntable motor. Replace motor. Replace the panel. I did not remove the micro wave or the range stove. It is a little difficult working over the stove but it can be done. It does save time. Turntable works o.k. no noise. Doing the job myself saved a $200 service call. On line instructions ,parts list and diagrams are very helpful.
