Microwave Turntable doesn't spin

Hi,

The turntable in my Panasonic NN-T994SFR microwave has stopped spinning. Everything else works fine. We would really like to fix this ourselves, if possible. My husband is very handy & has electronic/electrical experience but not with appliances.

Thanks in advance!
Julie

Hi
Sounds like the turntable motor has packed up.
Normally this is located underneath the microwave and should be readily available as a spare part.
BE WARNED i would NOT suggest taking the cover of the machine. There is a capacitor in there which stores 5000 volt and if you dont know what you are doing it can kill.
Please leave feedback

Panasonic NN-SN960S, turntable won't stop spinning. Have to unplug after every use. What kind of repair does it need and how much would it cost?


May be a door switch problem, or may be a control board problem. You might even have a shorted wire that goes to the turntable motor. (I have seen 1 of the wires get pinched and cut by metal guards or guides that were meant to keep the wires in place.) You can remove the screws from the bottom of the microwave oven, and drop the bottom panel down to checked for pinched wires. Unplug the microwave first before you do that.

Panasonic nn ct766 turntable locked


If everything cooks as normal but the turntable does not turn then I would say that either the turntable motor has failed or the supply for the motor, either way this is not a problem you could fix yourself & so I would recommend taking to a microwave repair centre or service engineer.

Hi, my panasonic nn-c784mf stop spinning, seems like the bolt at the center is stuck. Any solutions? Thanks!!!


If you are talking about the turntable with the glass plate that is not working. It is caused by a defective turntable motor, the only solution is to have it replaced, but considering prices as they are probably better to replace the microwave oven.

Panasonic inverter microwave model NN-A574SBBTQ . The turntable has stopped working. Any ideas please.


If everything else is running, it means the turntable motor has become defective and will need to be replaced, this is a common problem with many brands.

Panasonic Microwave NN-S935BF turntable and light do not work. Microwave still works. Bulb and turntable motor okay. No power to light or turntable. Any ideas?


Your description seems to be confusing turntable and light do not work
Bulb and motor OK
No power to light or turntable

Which is it?

They could be separate incidents. The drive motor could be fused and the globe just blew its life away..
