Question about Maytag MMV1153A Microwave Oven
Microwave works, cooks food but the plate inside is not turning. Pretty much the little turn wheel appears stuck and the glass plate is not turning any more. That causes my dishes to overheat and food to not be heated evenly. Is there any help for this? It's installed/built in so I can't flip the whole unit upside down :). Help!!!
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 is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.
To replace either is a pretty simple job.
You need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
