First I unpluged the power cord. Then I removed five screws on the bottom panel which will swing down to reveal the turntable motor. I removed the electrical plug from the motor and the two screws that hold the motor in place. Put the new motor in place and align the flat side of the motor shaft with the hole in the bottom of the turntable. Fasten the two screws that hold the motor back in place and reconnect the power plug to the motor. Swing the bottom panel back in place and secure with the five screws. Plug the power cord back in and reset the clock and you are ready to use the microwave.This was a very simple do-it-yourself repair and information on the partselect website was very helpful. The order and shipping process was simple and fast. Anyone who knows which end of a screwdriver to use should be able to do this repair.
Removed the five screws that allowed the bottom panel of the microwave to drop down at an angle, still attached at the rear. Took the old motor out by removing the two screws holding it and replaced it with the new motor. Reversed to process to install the new motor. Had to take off the plastic piece inside the microwave that holds the glass plate that turns and then replace it after I got the new motor installed.
First I removed the 6 screws that hold the bottom of the microwave . I was able to see and get to the cooking tray drive motor. I removed the 2 screws and took out the motor. I replaced the motor and replaced all the screws. Started the microwave and it worked , no problem.
7 screws, lowered the bottom and replaced the motor with two more screws. It was fairly easy and I'm pretty proud of myself.The installers grouted in my above the top microwave so the bottom didn't hinge down as easily as it should have. But it worked.
I removed the under frame and then the two screws holding the Glass Cooking Tray Drive Motor, replaced the motor and off we went. Very easy. THis took care of the ugly noise this microvae was making for years
Removed the screws holding the bottom cover on, removed screws holding motor in place, replaced motor, put everything back in. Simple as changing batteries.The nice thing is that PartSelect, as always, delivered exactly what I needed and very fast. Ordered on a Wednesday and received it on Thursday (the very next day!)
Repair was simple. Remove screws on bottom panel of microwave, let cover hang on hinges. Remove two screws from drive motor, remove old motor, insert new motor, replace two screws, then reattach bottom panel. Done! Quiet has returned to my microwave:-)I also discovered that the (night light) bulbs are much easier to replace when the bottom panel is lowered.
Took out the screw holding the old motor, unpluged it and reversed the procedure to install new part. My wife is now very happy!
Disconnect the power cord. Removed the screws locate under the spacesaver microwave. The bottom will swing down and hang off the hooks on the back edge. Disconnect the wires plugged into the broken motor. Remove the two screws that hold the broken motor in place. Replace with new motor and re-insert screws and motor wires. Reassemble bottom panel and plug power cord back in.
The delivery was lightening fast...which I didn't expect. Great service.First I shut the circuit breaker off for the microwave.I then removed the six screws on the full undermount. The motor was visible; it was simple to unscrew the 2 screws on the motor; pulled it away from the wire/plug and disconnected it. It was just as simple to plug the new motor in, then screw the unit it place with the 2 screws. That was it...just replaced the undermount and turned the cicuit breaker back on.And to think GE said to buy a new one!
Told by appliance repair service that parts were very expensive and service call started at $80 minimum. Finding replacement motor on your site was very easy. Instructions on repair were very complete and included pictures of the motor itself which had same capacity as replacement motor. Before ordering part from PartSelect I followed the online instruction for repair/replacement of the Microwave table motor and it was exactly as described. Removed filters and 10 screws with a single Phillips head screw driver. Motor looked the same as picture and ordered it. Part arrived in 24 hours and it took 4 minutes to replace the motor from start to finish. Total costs including shipping was approx 40 dollars. Great service and great site. This is my second repair using PartSelect.
put towel down not to lose the seven screws to remove drive motor. two screws to remove drive motor.replace motor and screws ,works now.
I removed the 7 screws on the cover for it to drop down. Then disconnected the 2 plugs from the motor and removed 2 screws that was holding the motor in place. Connected the new motor to the plugs, screwed back in place, and then screwed the cover up. Total time: approximately 15 minutes. I suggest you put a towel on top of the stove for protection. Easy to do. Thank you.
The ground shipping took less than three days. When I got home from work the part was at home. While I was having dinner I told my 17 year son to get a phillip screw driver. He unplugged the power from the wall. He removed five screw from the bottom of microwave. He then removed one screw from the drive motor, disconnected motor plug, reconnected the plug to the new motor, placed back one screw on the motor and screwed back the five screws. Tested the microwave and the tray was turning successfully. It took my son less than five minutes. Real easy and highly recommended.
