This repair was one of the easiest I've ever done. I turned off the power to the microwave at the breaker, lowered the bottom panel by removing the screws, disconnected the wires to the old motor, pulled it out by removing two screws attaching it, attached the new motor with the same screws, connected the wires to it and that was all. The turnable has worked perfectly (and quietly) since.
I removed 4 screw from the under carriage of the microwave then, removed the 2 screws from the motor, replaced the motor and replaced the screws. It was so easy it took only 4 minutes to perform, better than replacing the whole unit (microwave) and less expensive too. i only wish it was made in the US, I wouldn't mind to spend a little more.
Small sized phillips screw driver was required. Once gaining access to the new motor the part(s) replacement was simple.
I followed the directions on your web site. I removed the screws adn dropped the bottom tray, unplugged the drive motor, removed two screw, and replaced with the new motor. It only took about 15 minutes.
Wow! It really was as easy as everyone says. I ordered the part. It came overnight. I took out the 6 screws on the bottom of the microwave (AFTER unplugging the microwave of course), unscrewed the part and unplugged it, put in the new motor, plugged it in and screwed it in, and replaced the bottom screws. The only trouble I had, which really has nothing to do with this part or the repair, was that some of the screws on the bottom of the microwave were very difficult to replace as they didn't seem to line up with the holes beneath. I had a handyman coming to do some deck repairs and had him put those in. Ah well. I did MOST of it myself.Stephanie, age 52
Removed the 6 screws that held the cover below my microwave. Unplugged the part, plugged in the new one and I was done. My part arrived from you just one day after I ordered it! It was my first microwave repair ever, and it couldn't have been easier.
Just removed the screws from botton of unit, unplugged and removed the burned up motor, reveresed the process to install new motor. Less than 10 minute job.
unsrewed the bottom of the microwave(there was about five or six screws)located the motor unpluged it and unscrewed the two screws holding the motor once installed i reversed the proceedure and put everything back together...simple as 1,2,3...
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 thescrews holding the drive motor in place; removed the old drive motor and installedthe new drive motor---beyond easy!!!Thank you!
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!Bernard
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.
Using a phillips screwdriver, remove 7 screws from the unerpanel of the Spacesaver Microwave. The panel will swing down from the rear edge hinge, exposing the lights and the stirrer motor. Remove the electrical connector and two screws holding the motor in place and remove the motor. The stirrer inside the oven can then be removed if desired. Install the new motor in reverse order. Note rotate the stirrer inside the oven to align the motor shaft to facilitate assembly.
There where five screws to remove to get the bottom off then two to release the motor from the housing pull the electrical supply cord out then reverse the process. Piece of cake.
I read several customer reviews before starting the repair. Removed the old drive motor to make sure I was ordering the correct part. Removal consisted of removing the screws on the bottom plate, disconnecting the electrical plug from the motor, and removing the one screw that attached the motor to the housing. Installation of the new motor was the reverse.
