In some cases, the unit will have an option to turn the turntalbe on and off, depending on your needs. If you have your manual, check there to see if that optyion exists, and if so, you should be able to use the HELP or other key to turn it on. If not, you can visit and select the use & care manuals option near the lower right of their home page. You will be instructed to enter your full 10-digit model number. Then you can download it. If that doesn't solve your situation, then you may have a bad connection, a bad switch or relay on the control panel, or a bad motor. Once you've checked against the manual, please feel free to post back with your full model number and we'll be happy to help you further.

Maytag microwave turntable doesn't operate

Does everything else work?? If so, its just the turntable motor, simple to replace. there are three or four screws under the bottom. UNPLUG the microwave first.

My microwave turns on, turntable turns, just won't heat. the microwave is 6 years old. Is it wiser to bring in a repairman or just replace? there is a picture of the microwave by the timer window.

There are 2 fuses inside the cabinet. One is for the clock and turntable. The other is for the high voltage transformer and the microwave module. If this fuse is blown either the transformer is shorted or the module has failed to cause the fuse to blow. Parts and Labor can get close to the cost of a new one, so get an estimate so you can have information to make your decision

Microwave Turntable doesn't spin

Sounds like the turntable motor has packed up.
Normally this is located underneath the microwave and should be readily available as a spare part.
BE WARNED i would NOT suggest taking the cover of the machine. There is a capacitor in there which stores 5000 volt and if you dont know what you are doing it can kill.
Please leave feedback

Over the range microwave turntable has stopped turning

You give very little information Toni, but it seems the turntable motor is defective. If you are comfortable with this you must remove the cabinet (probably six screws in the back) and locate the motor at the bottom of the unit. Check all connections and connect the motor to a 120 volt source. If it is defective, order a new one on-line from the manufacturer. Your other option is to replace the oven. This would be my suggestion unless it is still in warranty.
