After finding the part on PartSelect, ordering it online, receiving it quicker than expected -- it took me 5 minutes to unscrew the bottom cover of the microwave, take off the old motor, replace with the new motor, screw the cover back on and test the WORKING cooking tray drive motor.
Very impressed with the efficiency of PartSelect. It's web page was easy to navigate. Thanks.

Rather than open access door took off bottom (5 screws) This gave more room as the microwave is mounted under the wall cabinets over the stove.

The handle was broken at bottom.

I gently removed the plastic outer cover of the door. I was able to remove two screws. I then removed the inside plastic cover, that allowed me to remove the two inner screws. I replaced the handle, screwed in the two inner screws. Replaced the inside plastic cover. After that I screwed in the two outer screws. The handle was secured. I then replaced the outer plastic cover. I was surprised at how easy I did it. It looked hard at first. I felt good about myself afterward, and save a lot of money.

first i remove the screw, then removed the lens assembly (really a frame) bent the feet out of the way, slid the old lens out and the new one in, bent the feet back in place and inserted the assembly into place replaced screw. the killer is a day later it was broken again, think the lens can't handle the heat from the oven below or the lights above. you guys where great fast and exact match part but the ge design is flawed

I ended up breaking one bulb trying to remove a burnt bulb for replacement. We then tried removing the other bulb and it wouldn't come out either. I googled the problem and found PartSelect and an explaination of the problem. Heat from either the stove or the bulbs had fused the bulbs into the sockets. Comments on the problem explained that you just remove the bottome pannel (we had seven screws), unplug the old sockets, insert the new and new bulbs and reattach the panel. It was quick and no problems to correct. We did discover the microwave was on its own breaker, make sure to disconnect or cutoff power to the microwave before you start.

I unscrewed the entire undersurface of the microwave (I didn't do this before!) and replaced the light socket. Easy job and I'm glad the part was still available.

Turntable no longer went around

I followed the instructions provided by others on-line who had done a similar repair. I removed a handful of screws, disconnected the wires from the old drive motor and connected them to the new drive, replaced the screws that held the drive motor in place, and those that held the bottom housing in place, and I was done. Literally took less than 10 minutes. If I had known earlier how easy it was, the microwave would have been fixed much earlier.

Turn table stoped functioning

Troubleshooting process:
Using a screw driver I opened the bottom of the unit using a Philips screwdriver and unhooked the drive motor electrical connector. Using a multimeter I checked to ensure power to the motor. This confirmed that the motor is bad and must be replaced.

Repair process:
After receiving new motor I removed the old motor and installed the new one using a Philips screwdriver and closed up the bottom cover.

It functioned good as new. Relatively cheap and very easy fix.

Door handle broken on microwave.

Fortunately I had my handyman here to repair a leak under my kitchen sink and asked him to replace the handle on my microwave. There were no instructions included with the handle but I had printed out descriptions from the web site of what others had done. He pried off the inside of the door which revealed two screws, which he removed. He then had to pry off another covering which revealed the other two screws that removed the handle. He attached the new handle and put the two parts that were pried off back on. It would not be an easy process for the ordinary householder and it would have been nice if detailed instructions had come with the handle (with pictures showing exactly which areas of the door needed to be removed). I was going to try the repair myself but am extremely glad my handyman was there as I probably would have ruined the microwave and would have had to purchase a new one. Kudos to my handyman.
