SOURCE: The turntable makes grinding niose when engaged

That model number doesn't ring a bell. Is that right? Is it foreign?

Chances are the coupler and/or turntable support will be damaged or warped.

Also on some brands, the "packing" (often a rubber grommet) must be replaced.

Possible there is friction within the drive , the shaft or the motor. You can remove and RESET the drive. Remove the motor , MANUALLY check the motion of the mechanism which will confirm the case. You c an reset using a bit of lubrication.

Whirlpool mircowave making grinding noise


The grinding noise could be from the turntable motor, or the fan. Remove plate from oven and put a cup of cold water in, set for 30 seconds and run the microwave, if no grinding is detected it means the turntable motor is near end of life. If there is no change unplug microwave and remove top check the fan mounts tighten if loose, if straps are tight suspect the fan motor.

Microwave turntable won't turn


You may have a tunrtable motor or spindle problem..
This info is from GE website..( link : http://genet.geappliances.com/geasearch/Dispatcher?REQUEST=GETSEARCHRESULT

To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug this appliance from the power supply before attempting any maintenance or cleaning.
  • Make sure the turntable is centered and seated properly. On models with a stirrer motor there is a shaft protruding up through the floor of the microwave. Make sure the turntable is securely fastened to this shaft. On models that turn on a ring with wheels attached, make sure the turntable is seated securely on the ring.
  • Check the turntable to make sure it is placed right side up. If the turntable plate is upside down it will drag on the floor of the microwave.
  • Check to make sure that there is no food or debris under the "wheels" of the turntable ring. Food can prevent the wheels from moving forward.
  • Be certain you are pressing a cook function rather than a timer function.
  • If the microwave has a turntable on/off feature make sure the turntable was not inadvertently turned off. Try depressing the turntable on/off pad to re-engage the turntable.
