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.

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!!!

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.

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!

GE microwave displayed the message that Charcoil Filter needs to be changed. I disconnected the unit and removed the top two screws then removed the top panel by sliding it gently to the left. Replaced the filter. And positioned it in the same way the old filter was installed. Replaced the top panel and screws, Connected the unit back and used the Menu option to reset the Charcoil Filter warning option.
