LG orbit and turntable will not turn.

Someone gave me an LG Orbit microwave oven. It works fine, except the turntable is not turning so we have to keep stopping it to stir food and or move it ourselves manually. Cannot make popcorn at all. How can I get the turntable to rotate like it should?

SOURCE: Microwave turns on, but no heat or turntable movement

The problem is that the magnatron is not getting power. Chance is that if could be a bolwn fuse inside the unit. If the fuse don't fix it then that leaves the charging diode, capacitor or the magnatron, or high voltage xformer of which without technical epertize I would not recomend attempting to replace. good luck

You need to take apart the oven and fix the turntable gear, then reassemble it, it is not a difficult job. Always work with power unplugged.

SOURCE: everything works except the cooking part/no heating/turntable not turning, help!

you may have gotten a power surge and that can cause some funny things to happen, 1st is there power to the oven, 2nd if so there may be an internal fuse protector built in to the oven, check with the manual for anything of that sort listed. if not you may have to take it in and have it repaired by a pro. there is a lot of voltage in these ovens and unless you know what you are doing a person could get hurt

It may very well have have damaged the turntable motor.

The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it 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.

On many Sharp models, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.


We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

It will give you safety info, step by step help in disassembly, troubleshooting tips, and part numbers.

SOURCE: Hi I have an Emerson microwave oven MW8998B. The

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

Turntable won't turn


The turntable probably isn't on the spinny thing and that is what makes it turn- try lifting it up and putting it back on.

No longer turns


on the bottom of most units you can get to the turntable motor with some side cutters,cut the joins. pull the little flap off and there is your motor run a current through it to see if it turns(how much will say on the motor) if not turning there is your problem

Turntable does not work


If the rest of the oven works fine, then this indicates that you might have a problem with the motor that turns the turntable.

If you try to turn the turntable manually (gently), does it turn freely or is there resistance? If it turns freely, the mechanical mechanism between the turntable and motor may be broken and the motor may be ok.

The oven's microprocessor also controlls the motor. There could be a problem there.

You'll need to have it looked at by a service center. Although its not that difficult to determine which of the reasons I mentioned above is the cause, it can be however, dangerous to operate a microwave oven with the cover off and with high voltage circuits exposed.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Microwave turntable won't turn


You will have to take it out and then take off the outer cover to expose the drive system for the turntable unless the items turns with the turntable removed. If it does then (and if it is belt driven) the belt may be worn and slipping. Anyway you look at it the cover has to come off to see what is happening.
