    I have a microwave model BDMOS15-XE. Lately I've noticed that the glass plate hasn't been revolving while cooking. The plate is clean and fitted correctly. I'll be very disappointed if I have to purchase a new microwave?? It's only 5 years old.

You may have to take it to an appliance repair shop as some turn tables are drive by a rubber belt underneath outside of the oven. It requires the removal of the outer case at the bottom to access this area.

Check the glass plate lines up with the 3 notches on the spindle, if it's not sitting correctly it will clunk, it's just a matter of getting the plate to sit right on the spindle, if still no joy check to see if the spindle is damage or the glass underneath.

Center will not rotate


The glass plate is driven by a motor underneath. Power may not be getting to the motor or the motor may have failed

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.

Microwave lights up and glass plate rotates but no heat. Also, unsure how to remove microwave from its surround within kitchen unit.


to almost all of the no heat microwave issues suggest calling company about warranty because the warranty may cover problems like these up to five years and taking them apart will almost certainly void it. Magnatron is likely cause for problem.
