Question about Microwave Ovens
Turntable is properly seated, on/off switch was toggled, but table doesn't revolve
Could be the turntable motor itself,or maybe your microwave may have an isolator on the control board, if not to get access you need to tip the unit on its side so you can get to the bottom of the unit, (take the plate out first )you will see the access panel in the middle on the base of the uni,t it will have3 or 4 moutings that will need to be cut away then the panel falls off, you will find 1 or 2 screws holding the motor in remove the motor you need to take the part to shop where you will have identify the par,t there so many motors for microwaves speed shaft size and shape they may even test the motor for you,if its not that then best to take to a repair agen,t

One suggestion i would make is that in the microwave there is the turntable, lift the plate off ,then below it you will see a circular object with wheels on.I think you may have this the wrong way up, so turn it over put the plate back on top and should work.
its the circular piece on runners that is the problem

The turntable system
consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers,
and the tray.
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.
In some brands, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.
I would contact the manufacturer via info in your owner's manual.
If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, I would suggest calling the dealer where you bought it to see if they have a number for them.

Sounds like you lost your HV diode. Magnetron could be bad but these days they are pretty good. Diode costs about $5 at www.mcmelectronic.com . It is located in left side near the rear and should be straightforward replacement. Let me know how this works out. Thanks for using FixYa. Contact me if you need more info.
