Remove the 5 screws underneath, then remove the 2 screws that hold the motor onto the base by inserting a thin phillips/star screwdriver through one of the gaps in the plastic grid underneath the motor.

I have solved it at last! Remove the 5 screws on the bottom. There are 2 more screws (which may be blackened with oil) located through the grille directly below the motor. They're stumpy little things with gripping washers. I had to bend the plastic grille thingys to get screwdriver in. Once released, these will enable the whole base to be removed. Then there are 3 screws to get the plate off to put the new belt on. Put the belt around the big cog. Replace the 3 screws of the plate. The motor drive is loose now so you can angle the drive cog to attach the belt to this. Using gravity by turning the processor on it's edge you should with some fiddling be able to put the stumpy screws back in - took me a couple of goes. Replace the 5 screws and robert is a very close relative.
I broke mine too, but luckily I found an extra machine at a thrift store. The driver was missing (of course), but I cut the blades off (hacksaw, easy) and used the resulting shaft as a driver. It works well: better and tougher than the original! Though they are expensive, you can order a new set of blades and do the same thing with the blades you have now. -Paul
This is a very hazardous condition. DO NOT stick you hand inside the unit as you may well get yourself burnd by microwave radiation. It appears that there is either a problem in your control panel assy or that you have time on your timer and the unit has a defective door switch allowing the magnetron to keep running with the door open. There are at least 3 protective micro-switches in the door closed and latched circuit. Very slowly depress your door open button or pull the door open slowly (depending on unit type) and listen for 3 distinct switch clicks. All 3 click should happen in less than one one half inch of the door opening. Try is sevral times and listen for the 3 clicks repeatedly. If you do not hear 3 clciks then you have a bad micro-switch If you hear all 3 clicks, more than likely your controll panel has a failed relay on it.
i am also having the same problem. it happened as soon as i got done putting in some parmesan and grated it. never happened before and i've got a few cups of parmesan cheese just sorta wasting away inside the processor. very tempted to break the damn thing open and just buy a new processor from a different company.
with that type of bowl on closing the lid the switch open and on opening the switch close.the switch will not unlock because the switch itself is sticking or defected try cleaning the switch with some contact cleaner.if that does not work then you will have to take it to a small appliance tech for repairs.if there is no appliance tech i a sorry to tell you but you will have to settle for a new one.good luck.
