Re: microwave the plate not turning

Remove power. turn it upside down. remove access cover and determine if there is a mechanical obstruction...could even be belt driven with a broken belt.

Unit makes a lot of noise when cooking.

The exhaust fan may be loose, {check mounts} also, the turnable motor that rotates the plate often gets noisey before seizing, {remove plate to see if noise goes away} and finally the magnetron gets very loud near end of life.

If you are talking about the turnable motor that rotates the plate, that motor will need to be replaced.

The microwave timer runs but turnable plate doesn,t rotate and the heating elements doesn't comes on

you need a new microwave. There are no heating elements in mocrowaves just micro-waces. It only heats moisture it does not heat objects. It is to dangerous to replace the actual device that heats liquids.

Turnable plate isn't working

in order to be 100 % sure
you would have to check voltage to the motor while its suppposed to operate
take off the bottom 6 screws, you might need whats called a safe t, a torque wrench or star with a hole
most use phillips,
drop the bottom, you should see the turn table motor
disconnect the two leads and connect them to a voltmeter,,,
turn the unit on
you should read voltage to the meter
if not the problem is in your control board and will need to be replace
if you do read voltage and the motor is not turning
you will need to replace the actual motor
either way its a pretty simple repair and can be done without taking the unit dwon

GE microwave Turnable turns on opening the door

Thanks for the photo of the label!

It shows the FCC ID number, which I used to find schematics at the FCC Web site.

The problem is a shorted primary interlock switch.

This is the door switch which has two black wires connected to one terminal and a black and a blue wire connected to the other

See these files for help:

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
