Hi, one of the most common reasons why the turntable won't rotate is that the microwave isn't clean. The turntable guide and carousel can get sticky, preventing the turntable from properly moving. If you have built-on food particles or liquids, fill a bowl with 2 or 3 cups of water and 1 tsp. of liquid detergent and lemon. Run the microwave for about 3 minutes. Clean the microwave with a cloth, including the base of the turntable, guide, carousel grooves and microwave base. Your microwave turntable won't rotate if the grooves on the base of the turntable do not sit right on the carousel. Also, check the position of the turntable guide. Place the guide directly under the turntable. Remove the turntable, and then reposition it into the carousel grooves.
Motor The carousel motor is located beneath the base plate of the microwave. If the carousel isn't turning at all, check the motor. Disconnect the microwave from the power source, and remove the turntable, guide and base plate. Try turning the motor to see if it's just stuck. If it doesn't turn freely after a few seconds, examine the motor to see if it's burned out or corroded. Use an ohmmeter to see if the motor has continuity. If not, you must replace the motor.
Bushings The drive bushings are plastic components that sit underneath the cooking plate. Remove the plate, and examine the bushings. Use a magnifying glass if necessary to see if any debris is caught in the plastic. Clean the bushings, and reinsert the plate. Turn the microwave on to see if it rotates. If the bushings are extremely worn or if some of the plastic is broken off, you need to replace it, which is a complicated repair for consumers. Contact a service technician for assistance.

I'm sorry, I don't have an answer, but my radarange also began this odd behavior about a month ago... my son is a mechanic has almost forbade me to use it, stating he gets a headache everytime he opens it.... Once the range stops cooking, I open the microwave to get the food out, and the range immediately turns back on, lights on, and carousel turning! I have NO IDEA if the microwaves are engaged at this point???!!! But suppose I need to find out ASAP!

You gave no model number or other detail. There are MANY possible causes. Fuse, safety switch, power supply, magnetron, control board. Check the fuse first. There is DANGER working on any device like this, and certain skills necessary. That's why they pay us the big bucks, NOT. If you insist on fixing it yourself, do a google search for your model oven, and download the manual. Please follow safety guidelines. Parts and repair help are available at:
