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

SOURCE: Turntable has stopped revolving...

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

SOURCE: The turntable on my Russell Hobbs SJS21 Microwave

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.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: it won't heat water,but it will turn around

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.

How can I keep the turntable from revolving when using a dish that is too large to turn?


Try removing the M/W turntable and placing a shallow bowl upside down centered over the rotating device. Then place your plate on top of the bottom of the bowl. The device will still rotate but will not be in contact with anything.

Why do I hear a popping noise when turntable revolves counterclockwise.


If the turn table automatically picks up the tone arm and starts the record and changes after the record is over, then you are haering the gear box.

Oven seems to be working with the exception of the turntable not revolving


Check that there is no damage to the plastic turntable rotor (i.e the part with wheels) underside the plate. Motor could be working but rotor missing or not connected properly, or damaged. Otherwise the turntable motor or motor driver circuit is fried.

Turntable stopped working (yes, I pressed the turntable on/off button)


It all depends on your model number of course, but if JUST the turntable is failing, it may just be a defective turntable motor or coupler.

If your internal cooling fan and/or inside / cavity light is defective, too, it may be the internal fan motor, a door switch, or a relay on the control board.

We repair those and can offer more free advice with the full model number and a little bit more detail about what's working, what's not, and when.

Turntable has stopped revolving


Unfortunately unless your are under warranty there is not much you can do. The table is driven with plastic gears and these wear or break. You can call a repair shop and if they happen to have the gears from the same model they might be able to fix it cheap enough. Otherwise it might be cheaper to get a new one to get it working again.

If it works other than this you can get a wind up turntable. Not as good as the driven one but these are cheap.

Turntable doesn't spin


Well the table might not be on the revolving piece- that is what happened to my microwave oven, or the revolving piece might have to be connected to a belt inside that turns it
