I hate to buy a motor and find that is not the problem.

HELP!!

REPLACING THE MOTOR FIXED MINE,IT'S BEEN WORKING FINE FOR MONTHS
GE USED A DEFECTIVE MOTOR FROM CHINA,AND REFUSES TO ADMIT IT,BUT I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING MADE BY GE,EVER,I MEAN EVER
JUST TRY GETTING HELP FROM THEM,YOU MIGHT AS WELL STICK YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND.
NEW MOTOR CAME WITH A REPLACEMENT GEAR,IT SAID MAKE SURE YOU REPLACE OLD GEAR,CAUSE NEW HIGHER TORGUE MOTOR WILL DESTROY OLD GEAR.IT COST ME ABOUT $160 WITH SHIPPING

Thanks RobMay1

I will likely follow your advice unless I hear from any other experts on others things to check.

Hi Rob,

The same thing happened to me and a tech said I needed to replace the motor and wanted to charge me $400+. Where did you get yours. Here at APP it costs $198 + shipping. Does it include the instructions on how to replace it and was it hard? Thank you so much.

I had the same hum noise, after investigation i found the centrifugal switch on motor had bad contacts. I cannot locate the switch. You have to purchase the motor which is sad because the switch looks inexpensive. FYI the ge repair man wanted 600.00 to fix it

It is the centrifugal switch on motor, the contacts are bad. It's a white switch with two connector under motor casing

Daniel,

Unfortunately GE does not sell this switch separate. The new motor comes as a kit with the new gear and harness and since last year GE raised up the price.

- The motor kit Part number: AP4432455
Part number: AP4432455
