Question about Panasonic NN-H965 Microwave Oven
Most microwave ovens have a door on the bottom of the oven to access the turntable motor - I am not familiar with a Sears in particular, but if the door is not already cut free and held with a screw, it could be like a Panasonic Microwave whereby you have to cut through side-by-side holes to create your own door on the bottom - then you should be able to access the motor and remove it's screw(s) and wires - It the door is one you had to make, then they will have it created so you have tabs to line up, but you need a screw to hold it in place

You remove the bottom cover, then there are two screws holding the motor in place.

NOTES ON REPLACING TURNTABLES & COUPLERS
Copyright 2007 by William E. Miller - MicrowaveDisplay.com
UNPLUG THE OVEN FROM THE WALL FIRST OR YOU WILL EXPOSE YOURSELF TO LETHAL VOLTAGES!
Note that I am not encouraging you to work on electrical items if you are not qualified, and I assume no liability for any consequences of your decision to do so.
When replacing the turntable coupler on most models, it is necessary to loosen or remove the screws that mount the turntable motor to the bottom of the chassis.
It is usually easier to do this with the microwave oven on its right (heaviest) side because you will need two hands for alignment.
Be sure to put a towel or similar cushion on the work surface to avoid scratching the oven wrapper (oven cover) or the work surface.
It is not necessary to remove the wrapper or the wires from the turntable motor itself, but you may need to remove a small metal duct covering the turntable motor if your oven has one.
It should only be held on by one or two screws.
Although a broken coupler may come out easily or even fall out, the new coupler will not go in without at least loosening the turntable motor.
Look at the hole in the new coupler. You'll notice it has (most do have) a flat side to it. That flat side will line up with the flat side on the motor shaft.
When the old coupler is out and the motor is loose, you can ease the new coupler in the hole with one hand while turning the coupler very slightly back and forth as you gently push the motor toward it. Do not force the part in.
When the coupler has mated properly with the motor, you should feel it go in.
Be sure it's right, or you may break the new coupler or bend the mounting ears of the motor when you attempt to tighten the screws.
Reassemble in reverse order.
