Found this Panasonic post in the Samsung section!
If it moves just a tiny bit when the door opens and then stops, that's normal.
If it keeps running when the door is open, that's usually due to a bad door switch or broken / loose door switch mount.
If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Is there an option via the Help or Custom Help to turn the turntable off and off?
This feature is common in over the range models.
Otherwise, it may be a bad motor.
You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPSWi_z7M58
If yours 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, as you're looking up from the stove top.
Please write back with your model number if you need further help.

The floor 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.
I would then leave the door open to let it dry untouched overnight.
You didn't mention your oven's brand or model, but it may be that the wheels on the turntable support are worn or there may grease built up in the axles.
Or you may need a new turntable support.
If you need to order a new one, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help point you to the proper distributor.

Sounds like the magnetron has failed. There are some high voltage circuits that feed the magnetron and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, otherwise look for a new one since the cost of repair can come close to the price of a new microwave oven.
