Thanks to great instructions from a previous person, this was super easy. It took 5 minutes to remove and replace the new motor. The big part of this job was cleaning out the cabinet where the microwave sits, since I had to take it out.There is a 'door cover' pressed into the bottom of the microwave, that just has 6 small tabs that you need to cut. Then remove 1 screw, and the wire clip and the motor is changed. The door just reverses and re-installs with 1 screw. When the microwave was designed, this repair was in the engineers mind. So simple I couldn't beleive it.

I detached the metal plate on the bottom of the microwave that once removed by cutting the metal tabs could then be turned around and put back in place with 1 screw. The old motor was easy to detach (1 screw) and unplug. Hardest part of the whole project was finding where to get a replacement motor so I'm glad I stumbled on your website. Once the part was received it took just a couple of minutes to replace and it works great.My husband called about getting it serviced and was told it would be at least $100 just for labor, parts would be additional. I'm now an electronic goddess in his eyes....
I unplugged the microwave and turned it over. It was easy to spot where the motor was located. I noticed the cover had little tabs holding it in place. I noticed it had brackets that could be snipped and the cover reversed so the little tabs and hole for the metal screw could be installed. I used snips and cut the little tabs and removed the cover. The motor had one screw and a tab that held it in place. I unplugged the motor first removed the screw and changed the motor. Then I plugged it into the wiring harness.The plastic piece for the turn table dropped out. I used pliers and straightened the tabs turned the plate over and put two small extensions in the slots and removed the metal screw and pushed the tabs in place and the metal screw through the hole and tightened. I then set the microwave in place and opened the door and pushed the plastic piece into its proper place. I then got a cup of water and heated it up.
On the bottom of Microwave I cut the 6 clips holding the cover in place with side cutters. Removed the one screw holding motor in place. Un plugged it. Plugged in new motor, replaced screw. Filed off sharp points of clips. Slid cover tabs into slots, put screw in cover. Replaced parts inside oven, turned it on, it worked. I did this twice. The first time the plug fell inside the housing and I had to turn the microwave over to fish it out. So when I received new part I left it plugged in. I should make it clear I am talking about the plug to the motor not the one to the microwave. Of course I unplugged that before I even moved the microwave. Thanks to another customer and his repair story because I was dreading the chore of dismantling the entire microwave to get to the turn table motor. He made it so easy. Thank you for having the part and great instructions.
