Question about GE JVM1660 Microwave Oven
Hi, Our Spacemaker microwave turntable started making a grinding noise while turning, then stopped turning altogether. (The turntable on/off button has no effect.) I thought the motor might be shot, but after several days, I manually forced it to turn, and after "breaking loose" it started turning again -- but the grinding noise continues. Don't know how long it will continue to work, and I worry that more damage is being done with the grinding. The exact model is: GE jvm1660wb 006 Thanks for any help you can provide!
It will need a new turntable motor.

That model number doesn't ring a bell. Is that right? Is it foreign?
Chances are the coupler and/or turntable support will be damaged or warped.
Also on some brands, the "packing" (often a rubber grommet) must be replaced.
