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.

The glass plate of the oven is not rotating, what should I do.is it safe to run the oven like this.


The motor driving the turntable is faulty, using the oven like this will not damage the oven, the food will not be cooked evenly though. Open the door and rotate the food occasionally to ensure allround cooking, close door and continue cooking.

Food not cooking in center


What make and model?? Sounds like it is not a carousel model. Have you tried a "Micro Go Round" ?? Otherwise, try rotating the 'plate' each quarter cycle...ie; every 30 seconds on a 2 minute cook time. Be sure to push the stop button first before you open the door to save wear and tear on the door switches......

Kenmore microwave 85609 has a 5E code on it


test this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Power Issues

    • If your microwave oven won't come on, ensure that the power cord is plugged into an outlet and that the power is on. Replace any blown fuses, and reset a tripped circuit breaker. If the microwave won't run, see that the door is completely closed and that nothing is stuck in it. Ensure that your door is not broken. Replace if necessary. See that you have not started the timer as opposed to the cooking function. Press "Start/Enter" to start your microwave.

    Clock

    • Your display will flash if your power goes out. You must reset the clock. If you do not hear a tone at the end of cooking, ensure that you have enabled the audible tone. Also check that you are using the right command. If your power goes out while your food is cooking, you must reset both the cooking time and clock.

    Cooking

    • If you see sparks while you are cooking, remove any metal objects or plates with silver or gold trim. If your food is taking too long to cook, ensure that you have selected the correct power level for the food item. Remove any other appliance from the 20-amp circuit line. Additional appliances on the same amp will draw too much power away from the microwave. Also ensure that you have selected the correct food item in the preprogrammed menu. Each microwave has its own error codes. Always read your manual to determine what the error code means. Examples of error codes include "E-11", "E-12" and "E-13." This means that you have a defective sensor, and you must get your microwave serviced. The "SE" error code indicates an issue with your control panel.

    Additional Problems

    • You may hear gear noises, especially a humming noise; the fan will automatically come on while your food is cooking. If your turntable plate makes noise, first clean it, and then see that it is positioned correctly over the roller ring. If your nearby appliances are experiencing electrical interference, move your microwave farther away to correct this problem.

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.

Error message SE


Hello :

Many models of the GE microwave have sensors that can detect humidity from the foods you are cooking. This allows the microwave to make adjustments to the power levels used to cook your food. If "Sensor Error" appears, you should either press "Clear" to cancel the mode or leave the food in the appliance longer to give the microwave more time to detect the food.

Press "Time Cook" to manually enter the time if you receive an error message when trying to use the "Sensor Reheat" mode of your GE microwave. The error message may be caused by the food item being too large or too small to detect .


I hope this will help you .

Is it safe to use a microwave oven if the turning plate is no longer working?


If the microwave is still heating, but the carousel is not turning, this problem is commonly attributed to a turntable motor that has worn out and needs to be replaced. The following link explains how to access and replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3555716-replacing_a_turntable_motor_on_a_microwa

This is a very simple repair, that usually is not expensive. The price range will be determined by the model and manufacturer. This repair can also be performed on an over the range model microwave oven WITHOUT uninstalling it.

You can refer to any of the following websites for comparison:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites listed offer helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with locating and proprly identifying the part(s) you need.

If you have any questions, please post back with your and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: To answer your intial question, YES you can still use the microwave oven, but it is recommended that you stop the oven about midway through the cooking process and rotate your food to ensure it is heated evenly. Early model microwave ovens did not have a rotating carousel and it was often listed in the cooking directions to rotate your food this way.

Can I temporarily run the microwave without the plate rotating?


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.
