I have a Spacemaker XL1400 microwave, manufactured Dec. 2000.

Resolved Question:

I have a Spacemaker XL1400 microwave, manufactured Dec. 2000. The rotation function has failed. There is a center locking collar for the glass plate that is not stripped (still in gear). I'd like to take off the locking collar, to see if there's anything obviously broken underneath, but I'm afraid I'll break it. I'm stumped. What is likely to be the problem? Also, is the cost low enough to justify repair vs. replace?
