Sounds like a capacitor replacement is needed normally the motor gives a growling sound. The second possibility is the switch to disengage the starting winding is frozen and will not open when the motor rotation starts going.

Too change rotation of a 5hp 230 volt


HAVE A LOOK INSIDE THE MOTOR CONNECTION BOX. SOMETIMES ON THE LID ARE INSTRUCTIONS OF HOW TO DO THIS. YOU DID NOT SAY IF THIS WAS A CAPACITOR START UNIT OR NOT. IF THERE IS A CAPACITOR ON THERE IT COULD BE NO GOOD WHICH WILL MAKE THE MOTOR GO WHERE IT WANTS. A GOOD CAPACITOR KICKS IT IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION ON SWITCH ON.

The 'start capacitor' has failed. It's under the little cover located on the side of the motor. Remove and go to a 'motor rewind or repair shop'. If you don't have a motor shop near by, go to grainger.com. The cap has a microfarad rating (uF) and a voltage rating, go by those two ratings to replace.

The belt on the radome drive sprocket jumps off of


The belt pully on the motor has a set screw that tends to get loose causing the pully to change position on the shaft. Position the pully on the shaft (move up or down) for better alignment with the pully on the rotating array pully and tighten the set screw..

Plate does not rotate freely and make noice


There is no belt in your model - the turntable is motor driven. The problem is either the motor itself or the coupling that engages the glass tray.
The motor (GE part # WB26X10038) is a very common failure as the internal gears are plastic and tend to strip.
