It was a snap using the instructions given. The key is getting into the unit. I did have to use a multimeter to find the failed switch since there are two of that type.

Easy access to the motor via a bottom panel. first time access requires you to snip the door free with wire cutters to remove access panel. remove access panel and remove the screw that mounts the motor to the chassis. unplug the motor and install new motor in reverse order. re install the cover plate you removed via inserting the tabs on door into the slots on the chassis and install the hold down screw that came with the cover and you are FINISHED!! VERY QUICK, AND PAINLESS REPAIR. UNIT IS UP AND RUNNING AGAIN.

Simply unscrew the bottom panel of the microwave device (it swings downward when opening - there are hinges on the back to protect it from falling down). Remove the old light socket (which is modular and is screwed in place)from the connectors and then replace it with the new light socket. That's it

Checked the make and model number of unit, went on line and it was quite easy to find the replacement part and order it. The part fit exactly as the original and I didn't need to replace the entire microwave.

We've been using the microwave for months with a turntable that either barely turns or sometimes, not at all. This causes food to become overheated in some spots and cold in others. Finally, we had enough and searched the Web for a replacement drive.

The motor is hidden beneath the bottom plate on the outside of the housing. Since our unit is built-in above the range, it was easy to access. A Phillips-head screwdriver is all it took to loosen. There were three screws across the back and front and one at each side. Unfortunately, as they came out they fell between the counter and range; requiring moving the appliance to find. Once that was done, I unplugged the drive wire and backed out the two screws holding the motor in. I plugged in the motor to test before reinserting and tightening the screws. Smartly, I had not put back the range so if I had dropped the screws again, it wouldn't be another hassle. All eight screws in and we had our fully-functioning microwave back! 15 minutes for installation and 15 for appliance moving.

Microwave would not turn on

  • Customer: Prashant from Dardenne Prairie, MO
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

Microwave would not turn on. Lights and fan worked fine. Before the microwave stopped completely, it would turn the microware fan on even when door was open. I read the reviews and they were exactly the same issue that others were facing. Once I opened the front panel and got to the switches it was easy to figure out which switch was bad as it was the one that was soft (When clicking it). It was hard to take it out though (it seemed stuck). So, I used a plier to yank it out. I put in the new switch and everything worked just great! I would like to thank other comments that were left on the site to make my task much easier. Thank you (to the commenters on PartsSelect), you not only saved me money, but also ensured that I learn about the microwave more and give me the confidence that I could fix it.

Powered Off completely

After reading reviews that there was no power what so ever and a fuse replacement will solve the problem, I tried it. Replacing the fuse is very easy (and I am not handy at all). All you have to do is remove the microwave cover from the top by removing two screws, slide the cover to the left and pulling the cover off. Then remove the grill in front of you, by removing one or two screws. The fuse is in front of you, use pliers and be firm but gentle. Replacing the fuse is easy but it did not solve my problem.
