I turned off the breaker/electric power to the microwave; opened the base of the microwave, detached the wire to the old drive motor, removed the
screws holding the drive motor in place; removed the old drive motor and installed
the new drive motor---beyond easy!!!

Thank you!

I diagnosed the problem myself. I googled GE parts and was refered to you guys. I ordered the part and it took less than a 5 days to arrive. I used a phillips scewdrive to remove the cover of my microwave and removed the turning glass motor. This took less that 30min and cost less that $50.00. I figured that it would have cost me approx $125.00 to get a tech person to my home for this repair.

Thanks a lot!

I purchased the fuse and 3 door switches from PartSelect. Replaced the fuse first but that did not solve the problem. Then I replaced the 3 door switches and problem solved!! So fuse only cost $5.00 so glad I have a new fuse in there as well. To see how to replace door switches see videos on utube!!

Nice. Half dozen screws drops the bottom, 2 screws on the motor, pop in the new, reassemble and throw in the popcorn. (Was skeptical. Have replaced quite a few of these little motors in data centers. Common part in high-speed printers. Never saw one fail like this but your feedback convinced me otherwise.)

I removed the microwave oven from the wall by unscrewing a trim plate or frame that surrounds the face of the oven. Pulled the oven out of the cabinet. Removed the glass cooking tray and rollers from the oven interior. Turned the oven on its side to expose the bottom. I unscrewed the small cover plate in the middle of the bottom which exposed the turn table motor. The motor was attached by two screws and a connector plug. In a couple minutes I removed the motor and replaced it with the new one and reassembled the oven. I put it back in the cabinet and it works like new again.
