Question about Kenmore 63252 Microwave Oven
I have the 63252 model. It makes a horrible griding noise as the platter turns. It's enough to set my teeth on edge! Any ideas how this can be fixed? My husband is pretty handy with most things but is uncertain where to start with a microwave. Thanks.
The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.
You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.
If yours sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.
To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.
You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.
A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

It sounds like the magnetron may have
either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high
voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

That model number doesn't ring a bell. Is that right? Is it foreign?
Chances are the coupler and/or turntable support will be damaged or warped.
Also on some brands, the "packing" (often a rubber grommet) must be replaced.
