SOURCE: turntable on Kenmore Elite will not turn?

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.

If you don't have your owner's manual, you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.

That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they will ask you to register.

Many times, the owner's manual will have the installation instructions inside.

If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the
Sears parts site.

That's where you could also order any needed parts and find handy exploded parts views.

Is that the only thing that doesn't work? If so it could be a coupler or a belt, possibly the motor it self.

SOURCE: GE Spacemaker microwave turntable no longer turns.

This is a common problem the turntable motor has failed, it can be replaced.. but Microwaves are VERY dangerous. Due to the enormous energy stored in the main Capacitor, this MUST be discharged to earth B4 attempting any repairs. apart from that though should be easy enough. I do recommend a reputable service center/man tho.

Hello,
click this link http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/lg-circulating-motor-item-number-ap4650096.aspx in the diagram part number 3009 is the circulating motor which is the part that you would have to replace. Actually click this link it may be better then the last http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-elite-Parts/Microwave-Parts/Model-72167909600/0583/0123245/P0703093/00003?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= part on diagram is still 3009 if you were to order this part it would be 6549W1S013A and sells for about 15.00 american from sears you can most likely find this part cheaper at another appliance parts supplier but the part number they would use would be the same. This is also the link if you need schematics on how to take the cabinet apart or remove the base it is the schematic for the entire machine. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-elite-Parts/Microwave-Parts/Model-72167909600/0583/0123245?searchedModel=721.67909600&blt=05 if you have any further questions message me back Thanks I await your reply

Cynthia. Look at this diagram http://www.searspartsdirect.com/Kenmore-Wall-oven-Parts/Model-79047842400/0582/0125400/P0508004/00002.html

The odds are that microwave is going to be a little complicated to fix that problem. You have to pull the microwave out and take it completely apart if you want to change anything. This is a high level job that requires security torx bits. I wouldn't really recommend trying to fix this one yourself because it's a really hard job. If you're gonna take the time out to do this job you're gonna have to uninstall it out of the cabinet and disassemble the entire cabinet off the microwave. I would recommend ordering the door switches, main board and turntable motor and replace them all if you're going through that effort.

Kenmore microwave combination microwave turntable makes a loud sound like a bearing is going out. Can I fix it myself?


Is this an over-the-range (OTR) microwave oven? If so, it is easy to change that turntable motor. First unplug the microwave. Then remove the 6 to 8 screws that hold the bottom panel in place. It will tilt down, with the back being held by the wall bracket. Now you can easily get to the turntable motor. Remove the wires to it, and remove the 1 or 2 screws that hold it in place, and you can easily remove it. Before you can install the new motor, remove the glass try, and rotate the coupler so it lines up with the "D" shape of the shaft, push the motor up in place and replace the screws, then the wires to it, and finally re-fasten the bottom panel of the microwave.

How do you turn the carousel on/off on a Kenmore Microwave Oven model: 5658932580


Look at the owner's manual of similar Kenmore models there does not seem to be a setting that allows you to turn off the turntable. However if your microwave (sorry but I couldn't find your exact model number online) has the time of carousel that has a lift out glass plate with a notch (hub) in the center of the bottom side then you effectively turn of the carousel my removing this glass plate. (see pg 4 of the manual - above link) You can place a normal microwave safe plate in the microwave in it's place. Make sure to leave the rollers in place...just remove the turntable.

Turntable doesn't turn


If you just purchased and Installed the microwave, I would call Sears and tell them what is happening, generally, it would still be under warranty if less than a year old. If its a countertop model, you may have to take it in, otherwise they should come to the home for the repair. I would also NOT indicate that you have looked at it as that would void your warranty.
Otherwise, it seems like the problem could be, a) touchpad , b) a relay or c) the main control board

Either the coupler or the turntable support is bad.

You can find an exploded view by entering your FULL model number (3 digits, a dot, then 8 digits) here: http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)
