Magic Chef MCO160UQ Carousel turning slowly


The turnable motor is going, the buzzing indicates the magnetron is about to fail. I suggest using the microwave oven until it dies and replace it, not cost effective to repair.

The carousel turns but no light comes on inside, not is there any display light. Nothing works but the carousel. Thanks


That sounds like there is more than one fault, but maybe not. I suggest you get an appliance engineer in to take a look at it.

Can i still use microwave if carousel does not turn but still heats food


You can but you may have uneven or hot and cold spots present in whatever you are heating. Sounds like the carousel motor has failed, those are replaceable. Good luck !

How do you turn the carousel on/off on a Kenmore Microwave Oven model: 5658932580


Look at the owner's manual of similar Kenmore models there does not seem to be a setting that allows you to turn off the turntable. However if your microwave (sorry but I couldn't find your exact model number online) has the time of carousel that has a lift out glass plate with a notch (hub) in the center of the bottom side then you effectively turn of the carousel my removing this glass plate. (see pg 4 of the manual - above link) You can place a normal microwave safe plate in the microwave in it's place. Make sure to leave the rollers in place...just remove the turntable.

Carousel stopped turning


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.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

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

Turntable turns, but in a constant jerking motion. The plate ring turns free so there is no binding.


It sounds like your turntable motor may be going bad. It is located UNDER the carousel and easy to get to by removing a few screws from the bottom of the oven. You can try running the oven without the carousel tray and watch the spindle to see if you can detect the same jerking motion. This would confirm the motor has a problem. If the spindle runs smoothly with no weight on it, but begins to jerk with the carousel placed back on it, the motor could still be bad, but you may also have a spindle that is slipping. In either case, replacing both would probably be a good idea just to be sure. Make sure you place a glass of water on one corner of the oven. It's not recommended to run a microwave oven empty. If you determine the motor is defective and want to replace it, make sure you unplug the oven and remove the bottom panel of the oven. There should be a couple of wires connected to the motor and the spindle just pops off from the inside of the oven cavity. It's a fairly simple repair job and will run about $30-$40. Let me know if this helps.
