G.E. Spacemaker microwave turntable won't turn

G.E. spacemaker turntable won't turn. Every time I hit the "Turntable" button, it says "TT Off." Of course, turned it on, but always goes back to off. Unit is about two years old.

Thanks!

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, 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 be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Turntable in GE Spacemaker does not work most times. If rotate manually, may work for a moment -- but won't stay on.


I think you have the worm gear worn. Even the motter is okay. It comes with all things together, so just replace the moter .

GE Spacemaker Microwave JVM 1542WF 002 : everything works except the turntable and it won't heat. Have tried the TT on/off nothing happens. Have tried the power setting...nothing happens.


Usually, power for the turntable motor and the magnetron tube (the microwave source) are controlled by a couple of things. One is a relay on the control circuit board, and the other is a switch that's operated by one of the door latches. It's possible the control board has gone bad or bad connections have developed. It's also possible the door switch has failed or is out of adjustment and the oven thinks the door isn't closed.

Diagnosing this kind of trouble may require working on the oven while it's operating. MICROWAVE OVENS USE HAZARDOUS VOLTAGES WHICH CAN KILL YOU. You might want to leave the repair to a professional because of safety concerns. Unless the circuit board requires replacement, it's probably worth having this repaired. Unlike some repairs, this one won't cost as much as a new oven.

GE Spacemaker microwave turntable no longer turns. Microwave still heats, but turntable has stopped working. What are likely causes? And is this something I can attempt to fix myself?


This is a common problem the turntable motor has failed, it can be replaced.. but Microwaves are VERY dangerous. Due to the enormous energy stored in the main Capacitor, this MUST be discharged to earth B4 attempting any repairs. apart from that though should be easy enough. I do recommend a reputable service center/man tho.
