Question about GE Microwave Ovens
First you need to see if it is the motor that is bad. Usually you find
the relay or switch that powers the motor and see if you have voltage.
The motor just slides up into the bottom of the brown plastic star thing (gear) that you see from inside your oven cavity (on which you put the turntable plate). It could be melted together or just stuck with whatever fluid that may have spilled over .
It's good you want to fix it, but microwaves are better left to professionals. A novice could hurt themselves working on a microwave.
Best get a qualified professional to take a look, or get a new oven (whichever works out cheaper for you).
