The problem seemed to be in the construction of the grille--too much weight pulling on two screws mounted in plastic. Replacing the part was easy. The question is will it break again since the weak plastic parts have not been strengthened in the replacement grille.

Microwave Turntable Won't Rotate

I turned off the power to the oven at the breaker. I then removed the side trim pieces by removing the screws located behind the lower oven door. I removed the plastic trim pieces above and below the microwave oven and removed the control panel and slid it into the opening above the microwave. I located the two screws securing the microwave into the frame and began sliding it out. I had to disconnect a small wiring harness and two wires from the microwave that were attached inside the opening above the microwave. The microwave section was the easily slid out, turned on it's side where the turntable motor was accessed by removing the access panel. I pulled the old motor, checked resistance and it matched the new motor. I then checked the old motor by applying 120V to it and it ran FINE! I thought I had the wrong part, but decided to install the new motor anyway. I did, secured the access panel and replaced the microwave in the frame. I reconnected the wires and secured the control panel and tested the microwave...and the turntable works!

The 2 molded plastic holes that accept the bolts broke.

A Phillips screwdriver was all that was needed. A poor design by KitchenAid for only having (2) bolts holding this stainless steel vent grille in a plastic housing, oh well. Don't lean or pull against it to hard or it will most likely break again.

I just had to remove the screws, and the broken parts of the old grill vent (plastic part that sheared off) and put the new grill vent in place and use the existing screws to attach and that was it!

Super easy.

the burn thru was probably because stirrer motor was not turning, Unplug the microwave .freed the motor up bu manually turning. temporary fix. The cover is held up with small push pin clips. Just pry the cover off with a screw driver or other flat tool. Scrape offf the old silicone. There are two covers in the Kit. you just need 1. Remove the old clips for the roof of the microwave, put a bead of silicone on the new cover where the old was and secure the new cover with the push pins into the clips .

Simply remove two screws with a crosstip screwdriver securing the vent louvers from top of microwave, remove the old charcoal filter and replace new filter as describe in the owners manual. Very easy installation and partselect parts are very inexpensive and durable to other sites.

The replacement part was identical to that of the original microwave and arrived in perfect condition.

The repair was extremely simple - too screws and a "snap" and it was done.

Couldn't be happier with the results. Thanks, Part Select!

The part is held in place with two screws. A poor design for sure. The replacement part is a direct fit once the two screws are removed. Reuse the same screws, don't order new ones.
