I have a mid-sized GE Microwave Oven model JES1033wb-001 aprox. 5 yrs old. The motor that turns the glass tray has failed. The GE part number os WB26X10033 GE wants $54.00 for the motor, Sears Parts lists it at $102. Which is totally un-reasonable since I can replace the oven with a no-name brand for $40 and an on sale GE for $60.
I am hoping someone can advise me where to get a sub part cheaper..maybe a used part? Is anyone aware of any used appliance parts websites or the like?
Or is anone aware of where I could get parts to repair the existing motor. The motor functions electically but 2 small nylon gears inside the motor have stripped teeth. Does anyone have a good source to get nylon gears from?
Additional markings on the motor (green label on back)
