Finally built up the courage to call GE Appliance number and weave my way through the phone menu system. Pressed the right menu option (sales) to speak to someone about trim kits. Found out that the trim kit model number is JX1527MWW. Then called back to select a different menu option (other) and learned from someone else that since the trim kit model is more than 1-2 years old, there's a slim-to-none chance any new microwave models will work with it, and even if there was they couldn't easily cross-reference against a model that old to tell me which one (or something to that effect). So I hit a dead end. Only option for me at this point is to buy a new microwave with new trim kit.
(Personal note: I think the trim kit business is a racket, in bed with the microwave manufacturers. Why else would there be no standard dimensions for microwaves by now--like refrigerators have--and why is it a few pieces of sheet metal cost over $150? Pretty convenient that every microwave model needs its own trim kit model!)

I ordered a trim kit from a on-line group who will make it to fit your needs. I can't think of their name but you can find them by doing a search. I ordered the black to go with my SS mic/conv oven and it looks great. Was not difficult to install.

You can replace the entire oven if you like, or you can purchase a replacement part for about $40. This problem is commonly caused by a turntable motor that has worn out and needs replaced. The following link explains how to access and replace one:
If the model number is correct, the part number is 56001231.
You can purchase replacement parts at the following websites:
The first three sites listed offer helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you in parts location/identification. I think appliancepartspros.com carries the part for the best price. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have the Thermador MBBS/01 in a Theramdor oven/warming drawer/microwave unit. When I was told it would be $600 to repair it, I called thermador & they don't make a replacement. Thermador CS was even rude about it. I searched & searched for a microwave that would fit & found a GE model JEB1860M1SS at Home Depot for $259.00. My husband & I just installed it & the frame kit inside, on the old Thermador micorwave fit PERFECT! I could not believe it. I thought we would either have to settle for something looking tacky in the hole or buy a whole new unit. Looks like it came in that unit.
