Question about Microwave Ovens
I have the red stainless steel microwave. It works with the exception that is will no longer rotate inside. There is no help in the owners manual.
Any assistance will be appreciated! model mw8992rd, turntable will not rotate. any ideas?
The turntable system
consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers,
and the tray.
You can see and hear 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.
In some brands, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.
