Remd for Model Number GH9177XLQ-0

ANSWER Hello Remd. No, the instructions are not included with the part. You will need to remove the outer cover off the microwave and work from the inside and outside replacing the kit 8184581. On a scale of 1-5, with 1 being easy and 5 extreme, this repair is about 3.5. To do this you will need to: Unplug the microwave oven or disconnect the power. Remove the cabinet outer cover. Remove the two front and two rear top cover screws. Remove the humidity sensor ground wire screw from the rear panel. Slide the top cover to the left and unhook the four front locking tabs in the cover with the slots in the chassis. Lift the left end of the top cover and prop it up so you can access the stirrer motor. Remove the screws from the motor and disconnect the wire connectors from the motor terminals. Open the microwave oven door. Use a putty knife and pry the stirrer motor cover with the plastic rivets off the top of the oven cavity. Carefully pull the mica cover off the stirrer motor opening and remove the stirrer fan. NOTE: The cover is held in place with Selastic adhesive. Use a piece of sandpaper and clean the adhesive and other debris from around the stirrer motor opening. Install the new stirrer motor to the unit with the two screws you removed earlier, and connect the wires to the terminals. Apply a 1/8? bead of Selastic around the unpainted area of the stirrer motor opening. Make sure that the bead goes completely around the opening with no breaks, so that a complete seal is made between the cover and the top of the oven cavity. Install the stirrer fan onto the stirrer motor shaft as far as it will go. Place the mica cover over the stirrer motor opening and align the four holes with those in the oven cavity. Press the cover firmly onto the adhesive, and install the four rivets in the holes. Hope this helps.
