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.

You may have a bad motor orplastic coupler.

You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

Microwave making dull thumping noise when NOT in use


I called a technician out today. Seems like the problem is the circuit board. It wasn't working properly and the sound is the fan. The fan is supposed to turn on when the microwave is in use and off when it is not. In this case, the fan continued even when the microwave was not in operation. A new circuit board has been ordered and will replace the old one when it arrives. For now, I can still use the microwave, but I have to unplug it everytime I finish heating something up. A little inconvenient, but at least it'll still heat my food up in the meantime.

The turntable comes off it's track and sparks. The sparks have taken off the black paint on the inside of the door. How can I touch up the spot of the door? I rent and I can't afford to replace the thing!


Sounds like you haven’t correctly centered the ring assembly under your glass platter. Remove the glass platter, now place the plastic ring with tiny wheels in the center and move it around by hand. You will be able to tell instantly if it’s centered correctly. Now place the platter on the center hub gear.
To replace the coating on the microwave glass visit these web sites. www.partselect.com or www.applianceaid.com and enter your model number then scroll down to your part. Click to enlarge and you will be able to view the entire diagram for exact assembly. If you found any of these suggestions helpful, please rate my solution. D. Lange

Just bought a Frigidaire GLMV169 Gold Series Over-the-Stove Microwave. Makes a strange sound like glass rubbing on glass (varible soft to loud). I tried turning the turntable off, but it was still there.


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

Is it a rhythmic thumping, or intermittent, or one thump when it first starts?

If it's rhythmic, it may be a failing turntable motor or stirrer.

If it's a thump just when you hit Start or when the magnetron turns on at the beginning of the cook cycle, it may just be a common noise that they sometimes make due to the magnetic field produced by the high voltage transformer.

Please write back with more details if you need further help.

If the turntable tray is positioned and seated properly, it is probably a failing turntable motor. You can find usually helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your base model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
