Found blowup drawings inside unit, which helped identify what I had to remove. Had neighbor assist in lifting unit from wall mount, unit slides easily from rails once top bolts are removed. Pay attention to where all the screws go as you remove them, some inside assemblies will have to be removed or loosened. A good guideline to go by is all black screws hold internal assemblies, the bronze screws go in the back side and the chrome screws go on top, sides, and front of the unit. I was able to lift unit back on rails without any assistance.

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!
