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.

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.

about 6 philips head screws along the bottom drops that cover off. 2 more hold the motor in place.

carefully remove the 2 wire plug onto the motor . do not touch or get near the black wire.unless you want to get shocked.like i did.

remove the 2 motor screws.put the new one up and turn untill the screw holes are the holes in the
lower inner cover. reinstall the screws .reinstall the plug and lower plate.

having been a auto mechanic till i retired, helped me a lot.total time to make the repair was about 15 min.

this is not my first order from parts select and all i can say is they rock with the best of service i have ever gotten for appliance parts. and prices one can not found to beat for factory parts.
