At the base of the spindle of the turntable is a c-clip. Use a table knife or flat screwdriver and needle-nosed pliers to carefully remove it. The turntable can be lifted off. Take care to not damage the belt underneath, if a belt-drive turntable.
If luck is with you, all it needs is a thorough cleaning.

How do I repair the turntable in a DAEWOO DMR603 microwave oven


Purchase a new motor, take the dish out and remove the mains supply. Place the oven on its side with the door open. Remove the cover plate beneath the motor, disconnect the motor and remove it. Replace it with the new motor. Replace the cover using a 3.. self tapping screw to secure it. Refit the turntable and dish, place a cup of cold water on the plate then plug it in and test.

Microwave lights, clock, and everything works except when you press start, it just counts down like its cooking, but the microwave is actually not on. No hum as usual or plate rotating. It just counts...


Hi, one of the most common reasons why the turntable won't rotate is that the microwave isn't clean. The turntable guide and carousel can get sticky, preventing the turntable from properly moving. If you have built-on food particles or liquids, fill a bowl with 2 or 3 cups of water and 1 tsp. of liquid detergent and lemon. Run the microwave for about 3 minutes. Clean the microwave with a cloth, including the base of the turntable, guide, carousel grooves and microwave base. Your microwave turntable won't rotate if the grooves on the base of the turntable do not sit right on the carousel. Also, check the position of the turntable guide. Place the guide directly under the turntable. Remove the turntable, and then reposition it into the carousel grooves.
Motor The carousel motor is located beneath the base plate of the microwave. If the carousel isn't turning at all, check the motor. Disconnect the microwave from the power source, and remove the turntable, guide and base plate. Try turning the motor to see if it's just stuck. If it doesn't turn freely after a few seconds, examine the motor to see if it's burned out or corroded. Use an ohmmeter to see if the motor has continuity. If not, you must replace the motor.
Bushings The drive bushings are plastic components that sit underneath the cooking plate. Remove the plate, and examine the bushings. Use a magnifying glass if necessary to see if any debris is caught in the plastic. Clean the bushings, and reinsert the plate. Turn the microwave on to see if it rotates. If the bushings are extremely worn or if some of the plastic is broken off, you need to replace it, which is a complicated repair for consumers. Contact a service technician for assistance.

My turntable does not turn


The turntable motor in the microwave oven needs to be replaced.

I have a GE Spacesaver PVM1870 microwave - the turntable has suddenly stopped turning. I've tried the "Turntable On/Off" button, but it did not help. What else can I try?


Perhaps the turntable motor has failed. Replace it as soon as possible as if you don't the food will not cook properly.

Replacing the turntable motor.

The motor assembly is fixed to the base of the oven usually with two screws and access i obtained by removing the inspection plate directly beneath the motor. It is usally a plug in synchronus motor that revolves at a few revs per minute but the plastic cogs in the motors gear box fail and the motor assembly must be replaced. They are fairly inexpensive and obtainable usually from a domestic appliance repair shop.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity and turn it upside down if it is a tabletop model, a little more complicated if it is built in!
Remove the inspection plate and disconnect the motor. Remove the motor and go and get a new one. Re fit it and put the microwave back in its position. Plug it back in, with the turntable and plate. Put a cup of water on the plate inside of the oven and heat for 20 seconds to check the plate goes round.
Hope this helps.

GE microwave oven squeals as carousel is rotating. Noise stops in a minute or so but begins anew when the unit is used again.


If it is the wheel on the turntable that squeels, wash the turntable in strong solution of washing up liquid and water.
If it does it without a turntable fitted, change the turntable motor.
