It's probably a bad turntable motor or coupler.

IF EVERYTHING IN THE OVEN IS WORKING BUT THE TURNTABLE YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE BOTTOM COVER OFF THE OVEN THE MOTOR HAS TWO WIRES ON IT, BE CAREFULL
WHEN YOU TEST IT AS THERE IS 110V ON THE WIRES.IF THE 110V IS THERE BUT THE MOTOR ISN,T RUNNING TAKE THE
TWO WIRES OFF,AND TAKE THE MOTOR OUT AND BUY A NEW ONE. YOU CAN DO THIS BUT DO BE CAREFULL.. YOU
MAY HAVE TO PULL ON IT A LITTLE TO PULL IT APART FROM THE PEACE INSIDE THAT TURNS THE GLASS TRY NOT TO BREAK IT!

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.
If yours is a GE, you can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
If yours is a GE, there should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
