36 page manual does not address the diagnosis of it not turning at all, only the removal of the motor for testing.  Guess you could access this and test it with your ohm meter, but we do not work on micorowaves and these are very dangerious if you do not know what you are doing. I would not suggest you trying this yourself, however this is their instructions for accessing this motor, with the unit un-plugged.
