First I removed the 5 screws holding the vents and lights on the range hood. Dropped down the panel to the range top. Removed power connector on drive motor and checked for voltage when microwave was running. I had the required 21 vac for the motor to run. Tried to remove motor the hard way and found a screw on the back side after trying to remove the tray hub and broke it because there is tab on it. With the screew holding the removed the motor came right out and the hub did not need to removed. The new parts slipped right in. Thanks for your very quick service.

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.
Remove the 8 screws in the bottom pan covering the bottom, unpluged the lights and motor plug-ins, slid or pulled the pan forward or to me and removed pan. prized the triange piece which fit into the glass tray to turn it to remove it. removed the two screws which held the motor in place. presto, got the model # off the inside panel and ordered the part on the compiiter, \. arrived in 5 days. P.S. cleaned everything while I had it apart, toke longer than chancing the part.
removed the screws holding the bottom panel, unscrewed the motor. Disconnected the motor. Connected new motor. Screwed in new motor. Replace panel
This is the 3rd time I have used PartSelect to help me repair appliances I never thought I could fix on my own. The troubleshooting knowledgebase walked me through repairing my dryer, the illustrated parts diagrams gave confidence to replace the thermostat in my oven, and now to replace the tray motor in my microwave, all saving lots of money in my pocket instead of the repairmans. This motor repair simply requires removal of 4 screws, and unplugging an electrical connector. Hooray for PartSelect!!!
Dropped the bottom of the microwave,removed the two screws holding the motor in, disconnected the electric wires, reversed the procedure and it worked like new!
Straight forward repair. The item came quickly, and since I had taken the other motor out previously to test it, the instalation was a breeze. There are a total of 7 external screws for the cover and two internal that hold the motor in place. One screw driver is all you need and access to the bottom of the microwave (I was fortunate that mine was an above the range model so accessing the bottom was easy). Anyone with a little manual dexterity can handle this repair now problem!
First I unplugged microwave oven, then removed the six screws at the bottom of the microwave and lowered the base to expose the small motor. I removed the motor and replaced it with the new one. From inside the oven I pushed the drive shaft back into the new motor, then replaced the bottom with the six screws. I plugged the oven in and tested it. It worked! In less than 15 min. I saved over $220, and I'm a 65 year old Grandma! Thank you, thank you!
I took it apart and found a small electric motor was not working . I couldn't find it locally so I ordered it from partselect and it was here in just a few days.the repair was easy only a few screws and plug it in.
Reviewed the current postings surrounding the problem i was experiencing on your website. Located the 5 phillips head screws on the bottom panel. Removed them letting panel hinge down, removed the motor connector and checked for 21V AC with Volt Meter confirming the motor was not operable. Ordered replacement motor which arrived 3 days later during the holidays. Repeated the panel removal then removed the moter retaining screw and replaced with the received part a perfect matching. All in both panel removals for diagnostics and replacement of the motor took about 20 minutes.
I thought this would be a major project but tured out to be very simple - 7 screws, 10 minutes and done.
Removed screws from bottom of microwave. Had to invite my neighbor over to remove one of the screws... he used his impact drill. Found out that the motor was working fine. It was the brown piece that the glass cooking tray sits on that was broken. I had removed the glass tray and tried to pull out the brown piece...but, it wouldn't come out and so I assumed that it was intact and thought that the motor wasn't working.It's great that it's so easy to return parts to PartSelect.
Removed filter, removed five (5) screws, lowered lower pan, disconected feed wire, removed screw holding the moter, twisted old moter out. Twisted new moter in, replased screw, conected feed wire, closed pan, replased five (5) screws, replaced filter. Tested microwave with glass of water in it.All went well.From part order to finish was less then five (5) days.The price was about $50.00. The people that sold it to me sugested I buy a new one because it would cost as much to have a service call and part as it would be to replace the microwave..
Simple as could be: unplug the microwave, remove 5 phillips screws to access the motor, remove the 2 phillips screws holding the motor in place, un-clip the motor from it's power supply, and reverse the process; you're done! It took all of 3 minutes to complete.
