    Decking is plastic. Can it be metal? It is more like a chip then a hole.

    you are correct it is the metal bottom under the glass turn table. sorry for the confusion.

    I'm still not understanding what part(s) of the microwave you mean.

    All of the cavity of the microwave is made of metal except maybe for the turntable tray, the support, the turntable coupler and the waveguide cover.

    That's so the microwave energy does not escape.

    So if you mean the floor of the microwave, it will be steel painted with high temperature paint that may seem like plastic if it chips.

    Can you post a photo of the area?

    Decking? Do you mean the metal floor?

    Is it an open hole all the way through or just chipped or charred paint?

Okay, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

I would then let it dry overnight with the door open.

How do I fix my turn table in microwave sn676s


Most Microwave turntables are driven by a small motor under ther bottom. They usually have a small access panel on the bottom that covers the motor.Remove panel and you will see motor with 2 wires going to it. 1 or 2 screws hold stirrer motor in place.

TURN TABLE DOES NOT OPERATE. WHIRLPOOL MICROWAVE Sep 06 Ser #RT 37 13345


Hello!
There is a small motor inside the bottom of the microwave that turns the table. Check the base and see if that is not broken. If that is ok, it is most likely that the motor for that is shot. It is easy to fix but may not be worth the hassle.
You need to remove the cabinet (while unplugged, naturally) and take the bottom apart to replace this. There may also be a small cover underneath the machine which accesses this part, saving trouble, so check there first. Unscrew the small motor and take to a parts dealer in your area for pricing of replacement
Hope this helps, Please rate and comment, Thank You Joe

Our Viking VMOS200 just stopped working. The lights and the countdown timer work, but no fan noise and no turntable spin.


it has nothing to do with the magnetron. first you have to fix step one. then you will know if the magnetron is bad. its one or two of the primary switches on the bottom of the switch tower. usually with these mw if you dont press cancel to stop the mw, and you just push the latch to stop it, those wires heat up and cause the microswitches to burn and loose proper contacts.

put a cup of water in the mw. set it to one minute and as its counting down. push on the latch LIGHTLY, as to not fully open the door and you will hear the magnetron kick on and the turn table start to rotate

The White enamel/paint in the interior of the microwave, by the base & back wall seem has peeled off - about 2 inches. I see unpainted metal & I am concerned. How do you fix this problem and is it...


The area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

If the cavity metal of the oven is cracked or split, you can use a small amount of steel-based epoxy such as JB-WELD to patch the crack or hole.

Once that dries thoroughly, you can sand it very smooth.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

Delonghi EM821AAN-800watt The turn table has stopped spinning


Make sure the turntable guide is lined up properly and there is no debris caught in it. Examine the turn table bushing the tray sits on and make sure it is not worn or broken. Make sure the turntable is sitting down in the groove correctly. Lastly it may be the drive motor itself is bad. This is the small motor that turns the carousel. This motor is very difficult to replace and unless you are qualified you should not attempt this repair and leave it to a professional. This motor will cost from $40 to $75 plus the cost of having it replaced. You may want to consider buying a new microwave if this unit is over 5 years old. You could end up spending more to repair this one than a new one costs. Of course you can use it without the carousel.

The solution is very simple. Unplug the microwave first. Remove the round dish. Remove the circular riing with the rollers and set aside with the dish. Carefully with a butter knife, pry up the coupler and set aside. Examine to make sure it isn't broken or cracked where it slips over the motor shaft. Remove 5 Phillip head screws from the bottom pan and it hinges down out of the way exposing the motor. Remove 2 screws holding the motor, slip off the plastic dual flat connector and slip back onto a new motor $52.25 + shipping from GE parts. Remember your actual MW Model number is NOT XL-1800 but it is on a metal tag inside the MW on the left side. Put the motor screw in as removed so the shaft is free to stick up the hole in the bottom of the MW. Put the pan screws back up, put the coupler on, the ring in and then the dish and line the slots of the dish up with the star coupler so it catches. Turn on MW, touch the turntable button and make sure it is "ON" and not "OFF" and it should be, with the door shut, turning like a quiet little top as new.
