GE Profile Spacemaker Microwave - JVM1660BBC

The turntable either just barely turns or doesn't rotate at all. Any ideas from anyone ? Thanks.

    Thanks for the help so far. I really appreciate it.
    So I tried something else...if I remove the glass plate, put a cup of water in the microwave and turn it on, then the plastic spindle moves, no problem. When I put the glass plate back on, it rotated, no problem. When I put something on the glass plate, like a coffee cup with water, it barely turns and then stops.

Either the turntable motor is weak or the coupler has cracked or worn out.

FYI, the high voltage is only 3-4000VDC but still quite lethal.

Otherwise, the previous solution is accurate.

The turntable has a small motor underneath it that rotates the glass tray. You could have a motor that is going bad, or the plastic spindle (what the glass plate sits on) could be slipping. You can access the motor through the bottom panel. Be careful to make sure the microwave is unplugged for attempting any repairs inside. There is potentially as much as 14,000 volts in the high voltage network around the magnetron. Let me know if this helps.

GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 microwave turntable


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.

On some, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

Turntable in GE Spacemaker does not work most times. If rotate manually, may work for a moment -- but won't stay on.


I think you have the worm gear worn. Even the motter is okay. It comes with all things together, so just replace the moter .
