The repair was simple. Unscrewed two screws, which held the grille in place and removed old grille and replaced with new grille.

The hard part was finding a replacement grille with the right color. Thank goodness for Google which led me to PartSelect.

Microwave Turntable Won't Rotate

  • Customer: Steven from Sacramento CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I turned off the power to the oven at the breaker. I then removed the side trim pieces by removing the screws located behind the lower oven door. I removed the plastic trim pieces above and below the microwave oven and removed the control panel and slid it into the opening above the microwave. I located the two screws securing the microwave into the frame and began sliding it out. I had to disconnect a small wiring harness and two wires from the microwave that were attached inside the opening above the microwave. The microwave section was the easily slid out, turned on it's side where the turntable motor was accessed by removing the access panel. I pulled the old motor, checked resistance and it matched the new motor. I then checked the old motor by applying 120V to it and it ran FINE! I thought I had the wrong part, but decided to install the new motor anyway. I did, secured the access panel and replaced the microwave in the frame. I reconnected the wires and secured the control panel and tested the microwave...and the turntable works!

First I removed the air deflector at the top of the microwave with two screws. Then I removed the single screw that held the control panel. After I removed the control panel I removed all the wires plugged into it, marking the ones with similar plugs so I put them back correctly. The next step was removing the 4 screws that held in the circuit boards and display. Then I reversed the entire process. It was a breeze and saved me hundreds of dollars over a professional repair.
