Why does my turntable only turn sporadically in my GE spacemaker microwave that was installed in the house in 2005
The reason the turntable motor will only turn sporadically would be because of worn gears inside the turntable motor. You will want to replace the motor. To replace motor you would unplug unit and take the screws holding the bottom panel in place. Once you take out the screws you disconnect the wires to the turntable and take out 2 screws that hold the motor in place and pull the motor out. Once out you would install a the new motor in reverse.
Is the interior lamp the same lamp as the two lamps in the bottom of the unit. I just orderd two WB25X10019 lamps to replace the surface light and not sure how to replace the interior lamp and if it takes the same bulb. Thanks, Brent
Answer Hello Brent! Yes, the lamp is the same on the interior as the cooktop lamps. The part number is WB25X10019. You will have to uninstall the microwave and remove the outer cover. Once this is removed you can access the bulb in the top of the unit and replace it. Thanks.
