Probably not. The plate turns to make sure the food gets cooked evenly. You can take the plate out if you need a stationary object in the oven.

Have a shop look at this---there usually is a recessed safety switch inside the jam that will prevent the unit from working with door open--sounds like the problem may be with it.

I have the Dacor DCM24 microwave and if the table does not spin will the microwave still cook food. I think my turn motor is bad, but wanted to know if I could cook food without it?


Yes! it will continue to cook food, the only difference you may end up with cold spots in the food, rotate plate once or twice to reduce this.

> Why has the plate stopped rotating?

The turntable system typically consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

Here is 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.

You order Sharp parts Encompass here or call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

> Will the food be evenly heated even though the plate is not rotating?

No.

Revolving plate no longer rotates . All else works, it continu;es to cook, but we need to move the items of food from time to time


Remove the plate, and check if the square shaped gear that normally spins the turntable is rotating.

If it is rotating, then replace the turntable gear.

If it is not rotating that means that the motor that spins the microwave turntable does not rotate, and must be replaced.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

It's safe to run in the very short term, but if you run it too long without fixing the blemish, it may arc and char more.
