Replacing Turntable Motor for GE Microwave JVM1860
Posted 04 April 2005 - 03:36 PM
In accordance with your 11th Law... my wife spilled a lot of water in the microwave and, I think, fried the drive motor for the turntable.
As such, two questions remain:
1) Is there a fuse for the turntable drive motor? The schematics posted by Steel Scooter1 would seem to indicate that, no, there is no separate fuse.
2) How do I open the microwave to access the motor? Can I access it from the underside, or do I have to remove the Microwave from under the cabinet (a two person job)?
Your help is certainly appreciated.

There is no fuse to the motor.
Put a nice big towel or two over the range top and console. Unplug the microwave or turn off the breaker. Remove the 7 Phillips screws (more or less) that are pointing up holding the bottom panel in place. The front will fold down and you'll see the motor. Piece of cake from there.
You can order the turntable motor right here from the bottom of this page.

I believe you'll see on the motor itself 21V A/C. Set you're meter on the appropriate scale and plug the leads into the back of the plastic covers protecting the spade connectors going to the motor.
Put in a cup of water and cook it for a minute. This should give you plenty of time to read your meter.
Type in this part number below 76974 to get this.

I measured the motor (it is an AC motor)... but it should still, I think, show some resistance. It shows none. SO I figured it is open circuit- and blown.
Thanks for the help... I did order a new motor via the link. I hope it arrives soon.
May the force be with you.

However, I did install it and it works!
Many thanks to you, Jedi Appliance Guy, may the force be with you
