GE Spacemaker XL1400 microwave Turn table does not work-

How do we fix a GE Spacemaker XL 1400 microwave Turn table?
I had a large bowl in the microwave and it looked as if is stopped turning. I tired running with nothing in it and the table still does not work.
I can turn it manually and there is some kind of noise and it looks like it wants to turn but does not.
How do I get access to this and fix this?

    Same difficulty with turntable not turning in a GE Spacemaker XL1400.

    Microwave - Turntable Does Not Turn



    To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug this appliance from the power supply before attempting any maintenance or cleaning.



    • Make sure the turntable is centered and seated properly. On models with a stirrer motor there is a shaft protruding up through the floor of the microwave. Make sure the turntable is securely fastened to this shaft. On models that turn on a ring with wheels attached, make sure the turntable is seated securely on the ring.


    • Check the turntable to make sure it is placed right side up. If the turntable plate is upside down it will drag on the floor of the microwave.


    • Check to make sure that there is no food or debris under the "wheels" of the turntable ring. Food can prevent the wheels from moving forward.


    • Be certain you are pressing a cook function rather than a timer function.


    • If the microwave has a turntable on/off feature make sure the turntable was not inadvertently turned off. Try depressing the turntable on/off pad to re-engage the turntable.

I did research and found out that the GE Magetetron (sp) are notorious for going bad. I called and it was still under warranty - 10 years, but i needed to pay for labor. That ran me $180. The part was $125 but would have taken my time to install, plus I didn't want to deal discharging the capacitor.

How do you change the belt if there is one for the


There is no belt on unit. There is a turn table motor and a turn table tripod or coupler. Either the motor is out or the coupler is broken. You can check coupler easy by removing glas tray and see if coupler turns around. If its appears ok, then t/t is probably out. This can be replaced by removed screws from bottom of unit and the complete bottom folds toward wall. Its in the middle with 2 wires connected too it.

GE Spacemaker XL 1400


First, wipe out any excess crumbs. Then fill a microwave-safe bowl with about 1-2 cups of water. Add some lemon juice, or put in half a piece of fresh cut lemon (squeezing some juice out first) into the bowl... Microwave until the water is boiling. Then let it sit for a few minutes to let the steam penetrate the interior. Carefully remove the bowl and interior tray. Wipe down the interior with a damp cloth. Wash the tray in the sink with dish soap, dry, and then return to microwave. For the outside, spray with a kitchen cleaner and wipe with paper towels. The main idea is that the steam from the water will loosen food particles, and the lemon will add a fresh smell.

GE Spacemaker making odd noise


We are having the same problem with our XL1400. I suspect it has something to do with the turn table but don't know for sure. We would be willing to disconnect the turn table...anything to stop the noise but don't know how.
