ANSWER Hello Adam, You may want to check the thrust bearing 12002213 to make sure that the thrust is lifting brake to allow unit to spin. Also check your lid switch 12001187 to make sure that when the lid is closed you have continuity through the switch. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
