I removed the five screws that held the bottom plate in place. After removing the bottom plate, I unscrewed the one screw holding the drive motor, unplugged the motor, and then installed the new motor. Replaced the botton plate and then tested the new motor. Everything worked like new.

The part was less expensive than buying it from GE. I ordered the motor on a Monday morning and received it Wednesday afternoon. I was completely satisified with the price, part, and shipping time.

Thanks,

This was so easy. I'm really glad I did not call a repairman!

First I unplugged microwave oven, then removed the six screws at the bottom of the microwave and lowered the base to expose the small motor. I removed the motor and replaced it with the new one. From inside the oven I pushed the drive shaft back into the new motor, then replaced the bottom with the six screws. I plugged the oven in and tested it. It worked! In less than 15 min. I saved over $220, and I'm a 65 year old Grandma! Thank you, thank you!

Straight forward repair. The item came quickly, and since I had taken the other motor out previously to test it, the instalation was a breeze. There are a total of 7 external screws for the cover and two internal that hold the motor in place. One screw driver is all you need and access to the bottom of the microwave (I was fortunate that mine was an above the range model so accessing the bottom was easy). Anyone with a little manual dexterity can handle this repair now problem!
