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!

unplugged the appliance, removed the glass tray from inside, turned the microwave on its side and removed the 3x3 panel, removed the drive motor by taking out two screws and disconnecting the two electrical wires, compared the new item with the old one, placed new in olds position and screwed in place. replaced the 3x3 cover, turned microwave upright, plugged in the power cord, placed a cup of water on the tray, turned the microwave on for 30 sec. and watched the table turn. Very simple and convenient application.

This is the 3rd time I have used PartSelect to help me repair appliances I never thought I could fix on my own. The troubleshooting knowledgebase walked me through repairing my dryer, the illustrated parts diagrams gave confidence to replace the thermostat in my oven, and now to replace the tray motor in my microwave, all saving lots of money in my pocket instead of the repairmans. This motor repair simply requires removal of 4 screws, and unplugging an electrical connector. Hooray for PartSelect!!!

I removed the screws (7) around perimeter of bottom. Don't remove the middle screw as it holds some gizmo in place. Dropped down hinged bottom. Removed motor (2 screws and a plug) matched to picture on website and ordered.

2 days later, part arrived, installed, good to go.

First I unplugged the microwave from the wall receptacle. Next I removed eight screws that let the bottom plate of the microwave hood pivot down with its hinges. Next I removed two screws holding the turn motor in place. I then unplugged the motor and replaced it with the new motor and reversed the above procedures until everything was back in place. I then turned the microwave on and was thrilled to find it working properly again.

microwave turntable wouldn't turn

Wow! It really was as easy as everyone says. I ordered the part. It came overnight. I took out the 6 screws on the bottom of the microwave (AFTER unplugging the microwave of course), unscrewed the part and unplugged it, put in the new motor, plugged it in and screwed it in, and replaced the bottom screws. The only trouble I had, which really has nothing to do with this part or the repair, was that some of the screws on the bottom of the microwave were very difficult to replace as they didn't seem to line up with the holes beneath. I had a handyman coming to do some deck repairs and had him put those in. Ah well. I did MOST of it myself.

Removed the 6 screws that held the cover below my microwave. Unplugged the part, plugged in the new one and I was done. My part arrived from you just one day after I ordered it! It was my first microwave repair ever, and it couldn't have been easier.

First I removed the 6 screws that hold the bottom panel in place. I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires and then connected the two wires to the new element. Secured the element in place and replaced bottom panel.

Real simple process!
Thanks!
