Problem would come and go. Found service schematic inside unit. Perform all the suggested tests. One possible solution was the primary interlock switch shown on the schematic and a check found the switch stuck. It would free up some times but would stick again in the open position. Ordered switch which was a simple plug in unit.

1. Removed cabinet screws (10-15?). 2. Removed cabinet. 3. Removed top interlock switch which actually was not defective. The press clip connection appeared as if it had been arcing for quite some time and the corrosion created resistance sufficient to prevent the current from getting through the switch. 4. Replaced switch anyway but broke plastic retaining clip despite every effort not to do so. Reset broken clip with super glue. 5. Reassembled cabinet and appliance is in good working condition.

My part arrived the next day. That was a surprise to receive it that quick.
I removed the lower panel to gain access to the motor. Disconected the 2 electrical leads and removed the 2 screws that held the motor in position. Installed the new motor, reconnected the leads and reinstalled the lower panel. It was a very easy reapair. I took all of 10 minutes to complete.
I will definately use Parts Select the next time I need a repair part for any appliance.
Great service

turntable stopped working--- unsuccessful so far with the repair

removed screws from the bottom cover, installed the new motor and reinstalled the cover. The turntable is still not working. wonder if the power supply for that motor is not working. I noticed the internal microwave light glow and then burn out at about the same time as the turn table stopped working. Could that power supply provide power to both the motor and the internal light? can't find the schematics for the location of the power supply so i can test for output power.

OMG! I wish everything in life were so easy.....The cooking tray of our 15 year old microwave cracked and I swore it'd be impossible to find a replacement. That is until I discovered Partselect.com!!All I had to do was input the appliance brand and part I was looking for, and there is was. Thank you, Partselect.com!!
