I purchased a Kenmore Elite Microhood model#66561682101 Serial#TRM1914457 "Brand New" off of Ebay for about $175. The unit arrived looking brand spankin new with protective plastic covers and everything. We installed the unit and it worked perfectly for about 2 weeks until one day I noticed that the turntable was not working. On the display it showed that the turntable had been turned off, so I turned it on, the display shows that it should be on, but nothing turning. Terrified of electricity, I tried to test the voltage to the turntable motor which showed some minor power for about 5 seconds then nothing on a 15 second cycle. I'm on my own here and I would like to fix this unit just so I dont have to mount another one. A new motor is $10, a new microcomputer is $150. Also I read about a capacitor that can shock you even if the unit is unplugged, is this true of most microwaves? What would be an easy wat to check the motor for functionality?
Please share the wisdom, master and help bring new life to the garbage that is Kenmore.
