Turntable not revolving, microwave working fine. One firm has looked at it and turntable rests on little cone shaped spindle which is broken. Any chance of a replacement?

When I used to repair microwaves I would pick up along the roadside for trash pickup. The Glass turntables would useally be saved by the owner. After they would find they have no use for it they would give it to the Salvation Army or some other thrift store. I have replaced many trays this way for around two to three dollars. You can also buy them from internet electronic stores, but they may sell for as high as 29.00. If you find one at the thrift store check the turning pattern on the bottom of the dish to see if it matches your microwave. There are ony a few differant sizes and types being used. Hope this helps.

If you can still hear a faint clicking sound when you press the turntable pad on the control panel, then it's almost certainly the motor.

It's called either the turntable coupler or the turntable support, depending on your model number. You can visit the Sears parts Web site at http://www3.sears.com/ and enter your full model number and see exploded view diagrams, parts lists, and order the part. Or you can call Sears parts at 1-800-252-1698.

I have had the turn table motor go defective in microwave ovens.
Normaly, before ordering a new motor, I always checked to make sure that there was power going to the motor assembly. I never had a power drive failure to a motor so-far. When they did not spin, the motor was defective. But, one day there will be a first time for me.
The fix was to purchase a new motor from the manufacture and install it. In some cases, I had to also replace the spindle key because the original broke when trying to remove it when removing the motor assembly.
I suggest that for servicing a microwave oven, you give it out to a service center to have the work done. There are safety issues when working on microwave ovens.

Yes, that's part # WB06X10138 (coupler) and you can get it here.
You will need to remove the bottom cover of the microwave and remove the turntable motor to get the new coupler in.
