I was expecting this repair to take 15-20 minutes, but the earlier Spacemaker doors were assembled differently. The access to all screws was from the inside of the door and required removal of two inner door panels. As long as you take your time and remove the interior door panels, the repair is not too bad.

1) I unplugged the microwave. 2)I removed 5 screws which allowed the bottom of the microwave to open. 3)I unplugged the drive motor. 4) I removed 2 screws holding the bad motor and removed the motor. 5) I installed the new motor with the same 2 screws and completed the replacement by doing steps 3,2,1. I reset the clock after testing. Easy-Peasy. My mother was thrilled. She was using it that way for about a year because she thought a repair person would charge too much.

PartSelect had helpful repair instructions on-line which made the repair easier and faster. Unfortunately, there were other problems with the oven that immediately blew the new fuse I had just installed. It was then determined that additional repair would most likely cost almost as much as a new microwave.

My daughter hand installed bulbs without a problem, took a minute and used a phillips to reinstall the cover. I shopped on-line because I wasted two hours between Lowe's and Home Depot trying to get the right bulb. I did think your postage was crazy high, otherwise glad to get the right bulbs to solve the problem.

The 'expert' at Home Depot told me, all 20W halogen light bulbs are the same... *not true*. After the purchase, trip home, frustrating try to install the bulb, recognition it doesn't fit, return and order and delivery of the correct bulb from PartSelect.com, it was a quick 3 min to put the new bulbs in. Thanks!

Used new rubber gloves so as to not get finger prints on the bulbs. Hope that was ok. Trying to use a paper towel was a nuisance. Also had to use a mirror to see the slots for the bulbs. This was actually a pain to do especially since I am short and was on my toes to do this. Only the bright light works and before there was a night light and a bright light. So there you have it.

THE TURNTABLE STOPPED WORKING

The first thing I did was to go to the internet for what to do and where to get the part. I researched at least 100 reports on how others did what I needed to do. Everyone that did the repair never addressed the turntable that was on the inside of the cooking ares. Finally I got my answer to how do I deal with the turnstile attached to the motor. It was simple. First step is to remove the microwave's plug from the AC socket then remove the screws holding the bottom plate covering the motor. Next detach the two wires from the motor, Next remove the two screws that hold the motor to the microwave. Then pull down on the motor and the turnstile will come free on its own. Install the new motor and reverse the steps to reassemble the unit. By the way I have only one eye and am over 70.
