I turned off the breaker/electric power to the microwave; opened the base of the microwave, detached the wire to the old drive motor, removed the
screws holding the drive motor in place; removed the old drive motor and installed
the new drive motor---beyond easy!!!

I diagnosed the problem myself. I googled GE parts and was refered to you guys. I ordered the part and it took less than a 5 days to arrive. I used a phillips scewdrive to remove the cover of my microwave and removed the turning glass motor. This took less that 30min and cost less that $50.00. I figured that it would have cost me approx $125.00 to get a tech person to my home for this repair.

Thanks a lot!

The new turntable shipment was super fast!!! I received it only a few days after ordering it. Installation was nothing more than placing it in the microwave oven.

GREAT Transaction!!! Thanjs!!!

The turn table was making a terrible noise and wouldn't turn. I called a repair company and they told me it would be at least a hundred dollars to fix it.

I removed the screws that held the bottom in and then dropped it down to access the motor. I removed the 2 screws that held the motor in and unplugged it. I then plugged the new one in and reattached it with the 2 screws and put the bottom back on. It took me about 5 minutes to fix it for only $40.00.

Turntable coupler became brittle and fractured

  • Customer: Timothy from Clarksville MD
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

I simply pulled the old coupler off the moter shaft after removing glass turntable plate. The coupler lifted right out since it was fractured. Luckily all peices came out attached. Typically you would need to remove the bottom access panel on the microwave and remove the turntable motor to install the new coupler. However you can simply snap off the extra plastic piece that is molded to the coupler to allow for an easy push down onto the shaft from the inside of the microwave cooking area where the coupler fits onto the moter. Piece of cake. I don't believe there is any danger in shortcutting this because the weight of the glass plate will hold it in place.

I removed the microwave oven from the wall by unscrewing a trim plate or frame that surrounds the face of the oven. Pulled the oven out of the cabinet. Removed the glass cooking tray and rollers from the oven interior. Turned the oven on its side to expose the bottom. I unscrewed the small cover plate in the middle of the bottom which exposed the turn table motor. The motor was attached by two screws and a connector plug. In a couple minutes I removed the motor and replaced it with the new one and reassembled the oven. I put it back in the cabinet and it works like new again.
