You will have to remove the motor to get access.
Easiest way is to start by removing the cabinet. With the cabinet off you will have access to the motor mounting clips which will allow you to remove the motor and install the new motor coupling.

Let me know if you need a walk through.
Good luck!

I got your advice on the agitator and I was able to pull it off but there was nothing stuck under it do you think it might be the transmission? It still turns during the wash cycle but its sort of a slow...


It is likely the coupling device that connects the motor to the transmission. These things are a tri-part plastic unit that frequently disintegrates. Refer to:

Inflation rubber ball disintegrating


solved problem with disintegrating pressure bulb on blood pressure machine. found your HELPING website unhelpful so bought a different machine which does not use rubber pressure bulb. your product is very harmful to the environment since the whole unit now has to go to garbage.
there should have been a replacement rubber bulb.

Outdoor fan motor is not running fast enough?


Check to make sure that you have the correct voltage going to the motor. It sounds like you lost one of your legs of power which would give you 110v instead of 220v. Or it could be in the pc board.

Need to replace melted carousel coupling


You need to remove the bottom cover if it's an over the range model.

If it's a counter top type, there should be a cover over the turntable motor.

On many Sharps, the turntable motor cover comes as an unseparated part of the bottom cover and you have to use sidecuts or snips to cut away the little tabs which hold it in place. Then when you are done, you use a screw to hold the cover back in place.

All this is best done with the microwave on its left side with the door opened, and the turntable and support removed. (Power off, of course).

Once the cover is off, you remove the two screws holding the motor, pull the motor out, then pull ou tthe old coupler.

Install the new coupler with one hand, and push the motor in place. Jiggle the couple as you do so it will mesh with the motor shaft.

Once it's in, replace the motor screws, replace the cover and you are done.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
