Question about Hotpoint RVM1635 Microwave Oven
I have a Hotpoint RVM1435WD001 that fails to turn the carousel tray but still heats fine. Just today, it started making a loud rattling/grinding noise and the carousel now turns. Based on the diagram from the Hotpoint Web site, it looks like I should order WB26X10038. How difficult is it to replace the motor assembly that turns the carousel?
You should be able to access the turntable motor if you remove the left side filter under the microwave. Disconnect the power, remove the left filter and look up inside that area, the motor may have a cover or plate over it, if so remove it, the motor will be held in with 2 screws (usually) and there will be 2 quick disconnect wires attached to it. If you cannot get to it that way you may have to remove the bottom of the microwave (underneath), should be only 3 to 5 screws holding it in place, the side to the wall will be hinged, once you pull the screws just let it hang or swing down away from you. Then follow the above directions. Make sure that you are getting the correct motor, there are two types, one is a square shaft (WB26X10037) and the other is a "D" shaped shaft (WB26X10038).
