I think You should replace the GEAR that makes it turn, or just do what 'techman' Says.

Bosch microwave oven,turntable not working,food not heated


Even if the turntable isn't turning, the oven should still heat the food but it will be uneven cooking. I would suggest that the unit is not "microwaving" This is usually the high voltage capacitor, fuse or diode failure. You will need knowledge of how microwave ovens work and specialist tools to test these. If you don't, I would suggest you get a tech who does. There are extremely high voltages in microwave ovens.

The odds are that microwave is going to be a little complicated to fix that problem. You have to pull the microwave out and take it completely apart if you want to change anything. This is a high level job that requires security torx bits. I wouldn't really recommend trying to fix this one yourself because it's a really hard job. If you're gonna take the time out to do this job you're gonna have to uninstall it out of the cabinet and disassemble the entire cabinet off the microwave. I would recommend ordering the door switches, main board and turntable motor and replace them all if you're going through that effort.

I have a Kitchenaid YKHMS147HW microwave that started turning on by itself, and will not shut off unless I unplug the unit. If I put food in to cook, the food starts cooking as soon as I plug the unit in,...


Sounds like stuck relay contacts. Magnetrons need a high voltage source which is controlled by a micro to relay and then from relay to voltage source. Even the turntable works via a relay.

Microwave timer works but will motor will not run/cook.


If everything works on the unit, but you do not receive any heat or possibly the turntable does not turn you have a faulty magnetron (controls heat) and a faulty motor (controls turntable). You would require service on the unit, if parts are available. Some microwaves are so small in cubic foot size, that manufacturer's do not have parts available for purchase/repairs.

The manufacturer has set the rotational plate in motion at the same time the microwave tube is energized. They work together as a team. At no time should the plate be idol, unless you remove it completely, and then only the center spindle will turn by itself. It is possible for the rotational spindle in the center of the oven to break, but that is unusual unless some sort of pressure (like stopping it when it was moving) was applied. Also, it has been reported that some individuals tend to put items with too much weight or too large for the oven to manage; thus damaging the rotator. As long as the oven still provides Microwaves to cook your food, it is still OK. Years ago, there were no rotating plates and using the energy was all it took to get the job done. For even cooking, just manually stop the oven at times and turn the food to avoid over heating in one spot.

SANYO EM-D9550. Turntable turns when off but not when cooking.


That's sounds pretty strange!

Since I don't have any service data on Sanyos, I'd have to speculate.

I would guess that one scenario that could cause it would be if the turntable were turned off via the control panel, but there was a switch or switch mount problem.

I would refer you to their support people:
