My microwave makes a grinding noise when running and the turntable doesn't work.


Possible there is friction within the drive , the shaft or the motor. You can remove and RESET the drive. Remove the motor , MANUALLY check the motion of the mechanism which will confirm the case. You c an reset using a bit of lubrication.

Turntable won't turn


The turntable probably isn't on the spinny thing and that is what makes it turn- try lifting it up and putting it back on.

Many thanks to e3enigma above! I removed the synch motor under the turntable; all other microwave functions work fine and the grinding noise is gone, hooray! A trip to the appliance parts store tomorrow for a replacement synchronous motor and all should be well. Thanks again!

The turntable makes grinding niose when engaged


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.

GE over the range microwave making grinding noise


This sounds like the stirrer. If it sticks or stops, the microwaves can damage or destroy it. You may have a bad stirrer or magnetron. There is an important bulletin that covers these problems. To see if yours is covered, see: http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf If you need more help, please follow-up.
