I need instructions for 10in. microwave browner


Only place I've found is here: CorningWare Browner Instructions

As these dishes were designed by Corning for a 650 watt over, you can recalculate preheat and cooking times for your oven with the following formula:

650/(your oven's wattage) x (listed preheat time or cook time)

For example, for a Corning MW-9 dish, they list 4 minutes maximum preheat time. I have a 1,580 watt oven. So 650/1580 = .41 x 4 minutes = 1.64 minutes and about a minute and a half preheat. (MAX).

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.

Our microwave has developed a very jerky turning condition. Sometimes it makes a horrible "growling" sound when this happens but not always. Is there a fix to this?


there is a gear motor that turns the turntable...it sounds like it may have been overloaded at some time or it's just worn out...this motor would need to be replaced. A word of caution though...there ARE potentially lethal voltages inside the cabinet..especially on the magnetron tube and the capacitor...do not work on the microwave unless you are familiar with high voltage safety and line powered equipment.

Check the door safety interlock switch ... cayse of more than 80% of failures of these wonderful ovens.

Look inside for the little micro switch opposite the hinge.

Check with volt/ohm meter or contunity checker, with the device unplugged, of course

Don't turn the dishe


there are 3 things that can be wrong 1st the stepping motor under the plate could be broken the motor is made up of lots of plastic gears to get to it you will have to turn the unit on its side so you the bottom of the unit remember to take the plate out 1st in the middle of the base of the unit you will see a panel where the motor is this needs to be cut out to gain access to the motor this will have 1 screw holding the motor in place 2nd and while you have the motor out you need to look at the coupling thats the part that the plate sits on as you remove the motor it will fall inside the oven pick it up and look to see if it has a split in the side as when the motor turns if the coupling has a split in it the motor wil just turn inside it 3rd the motor may not be getting any power from the pcb but u will need a test meter for this so try 1 and 2 thn if tht doesnt work it will need to go into a shop

My microwave is not turning.The part hold the tray is broken. Not sure the name of the parts.


If the microwave is still heating, but not turning, the part you are talking about is the carousel motor. The carousel itself, is the small ring that the tray sits on.

If the motor is not turning, it can easily be replaced. You will need to remove the bottom panel (under the microwave) to access the motor and connecting wires. The spindle is the shaft that attaches to the carousel motor and is where the center part of the glass tray sits. The spindle simply lifts off the motor shaft.

Since you posted no brand name or model number, I have no idea how to identify a part number for you, or where to order from. If you still need assistance, please let me know. Post back with your information so that I may be able to assist you better. I hope this helps.

Microwave oven H-4020 BM...... How to clean inside????? I am unable to get the stains off and inside looks terrible.


First, wipe out any excess crumbs. Then fill a microwave-safe bowl with about 1-2 cups of water. Add some lemon juice, or put in half a piece of fresh cut lemon (squeezing some juice out first) into the bowl... Microwave until the water is boiling. Then let it sit for a few minutes to let the steam penetrate the interior. Carefully remove the bowl and interior tray. Wipe down the interior with a damp cloth. Wash the tray in the sink with dish soap, dry, and then return to microwave. For the outside, spray with a kitchen cleaner and wipe with paper towels. The main idea is that the steam from the water will loosen food particles, and the lemon will add a fresh smell.

The solution is very simple. Unplug the microwave first. Remove the round dish. Remove the circular riing with the rollers and set aside with the dish. Carefully with a butter knife, pry up the coupler and set aside. Examine to make sure it isn't broken or cracked where it slips over the motor shaft. Remove 5 Phillip head screws from the bottom pan and it hinges down out of the way exposing the motor. Remove 2 screws holding the motor, slip off the plastic dual flat connector and slip back onto a new motor $52.25 + shipping from GE parts. Remember your actual MW Model number is NOT XL-1800 but it is on a metal tag inside the MW on the left side. Put the motor screw in as removed so the shaft is free to stick up the hole in the bottom of the MW. Put the pan screws back up, put the coupler on, the ring in and then the dish and line the slots of the dish up with the star coupler so it catches. Turn on MW, touch the turntable button and make sure it is "ON" and not "OFF" and it should be, with the door shut, turning like a quiet little top as new.

Yes it just unscrews.  Unplug the microwave first!  Then use some needle nose pliers and put them inside the base open the pliers to put pressure on each side of the base.  Now turn the base counterclockwise.  Let me know how it turns out.
