Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Broken turntable support

I have an Emerson Model AR550 microwave (I know it's old but still cooks!!)

Anyway---- the three legged support that the glass plate rests on has broken into two pieces, I haven't been able to find another one online and was wondering if I could super glue the pieces back together without having to worry about any fumes or danger from the glue being nuked??

 

I only use the oven for popcorn and to heat up leftovers -- no really long timed cooking.

Microwave-safe epoxy would be better than super glue, which will will emit fumes.

You would be better off getting a new one if it's truly available.

Tritronics (http://www.wehaveparts.com) shows it as part # M0R0282 (no rollers included) and the rollers are part #

M0R0272. You rrollers may work if they're okay.

My ge micro will not stop turning


HELLO.

If by not turning mean turntable fault,the solution is given below in detail.

1 Press "Stop" to halt microwave operation.

2 Press the "Turntable" button once to turn off rotation.

3 Push the door-release button to open the microwave oven if you do not have a "Turntable" button on your control keypad.

4 Lift and remove the glass platter from the oven, then pick up the plastic track with three wheels below the platter. Set aside these parts.

5 Insert the elevated microwave cooking tray into the oven. The tray has three to four short legs that hold it above the bottom of the microwave, keeping it from interfering with the rotating bolt in the bottom center of the oven the drives the turntable. You can now place food on the elevated tray and cook normally without disrupting the drive bolt.

Thanks.

Hi I have an Emerson microwave oven MW8998B. The turn table will not rotate while cooking. The smaller bags of popcorn just burn the bag. Does this need a repairman or can I fix it myself. Also, I am able...


Hi, I had the same problem with my Emerson microwave. As I rent out the house, and the turntable stopped working while I was away, my rental agent bought another Emerson microwave. On my return I tried using the new (brown) plastic turntable on the old microwave, and found it worked perfectly. Maybe it would be possible for you to order a replacement turntable part. Hope this helps. Good luck, Rosalind

Need to replace turntable model no. MW8995W


I have the same problem. Emerson gave me the name of a parts company (Fox International 1-800-321-6993) and they can supply a replacement when it comes off of backorder (anywhere from two to twelve weeks).

1990 Sharp Carousel II over microwave / vent hood


Sharp calls that the turntable coupler when it's a separate part.

If it's part of the the part with three legs, that is called the turntable support.

You can order Sharp parts from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com

If yours is model R1610, we actually have that full service manual on our site at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r1610_sm.pdf

The owner's manual is online at:
http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/MWO%20manual/MW8992SB-RD.pdf

You can contact Emerson at their number in the manual for a replacement.

I always suggest that people place food (especially popcorn) off-center on the tray (not in the middle) because the heating is better, plus the extreme heat is not always applied to the same spot in the tray each time.

Food placed in the middle will not cook as evenly.

Good luck, and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
