Question about Sharp R-1870 Convection/Microwave Oven
IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO TO CHECK OPERATION OF THIS 6 YR OLD SHARP R1870'S TURNTABLE OR MUST I CALL FOR A REPAIR SPECIALIST??
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 won't rotate or it 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. In some brands, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.
