Went on your website and determined the part needed with the symptoms described above. Ordered the part and when received did as your repair guidelines suggested. Removed screws bottom of microwave, dropped down bottom plate, removed the two prong electric connection, removed two screws holding in the turn table motor and replaced the motor. Reversed the process. Couldn't have been easier. Took about 15 minutes. Steve W.

REPAIR WENT EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED ON LINE...TOTAL OF SEVEN SCREWS...FIVE TO REMOVE THE TRIM AND EXPOSED THE DRIVE MOTOR AND TWO HOLDING THE DRIVE MOTOR IN PLACE...A MAGNETIC SCREW DRIVER WOULD HAVE BEEN HELPFUL BUT NOT NECESSARY. ALMOST TOOK MORE TIME TO FIND THE CORRECT CIRCUIT BREAKER THAN TIME TO DO THE REPAIR.

the ones below were easy --underneath take out screws--take out old bulb--put in new one--the one inside a little more difficult--but not bad--take off panel on the front of microwave over door--the light is in a metal housing on the right--take out old bulb --put in new--wore rubber gloves putting in new lights--do not want to touch them with your fingers--i just watched the GE video on the parts website and it told me exactly what to do--if i can do it anybody can do it !

After seeing that a replacement microwave would run at least $250 or more, I researched the problem online which included instructions on how to replace the motor and determined that the repair would be a somewhat easy Fix-It-Yourself project (and a whole lot easier than replacing the entire unit!). I ordered the turntable motor for under $40 at this website, it came within a few days. I printed the instructions from the webpage noted above and took them and a phillips-head screwdriver to the microwave, and I had the repair done in less than 10 minutes with my wife helping hold the bottom panel in place while I put in the 5 screws.

Found blowup drawings inside unit, which helped identify what I had to remove. Had neighbor assist in lifting unit from wall mount, unit slides easily from rails once top bolts are removed. Pay attention to where all the screws go as you remove them, some inside assemblies will have to be removed or loosened. A good guideline to go by is all black screws hold internal assemblies, the bronze screws go in the back side and the chrome screws go on top, sides, and front of the unit. I was able to lift unit back on rails without any assistance.

1) I unplugged the microwave. 2)I removed 5 screws which allowed the bottom of the microwave to open. 3)I unplugged the drive motor. 4) I removed 2 screws holding the bad motor and removed the motor. 5) I installed the new motor with the same 2 screws and completed the replacement by doing steps 3,2,1. I reset the clock after testing. Easy-Peasy. My mother was thrilled. She was using it that way for about a year because she thought a repair person would charge too much.
