Re: Panasonic Microwave Turn table rotates when door is...

Found this Panasonic post in the Samsung section!

If it moves just a tiny bit when the door opens and then stops, that's normal.

If it keeps running when the door is open, that's usually due to a bad door switch or broken / loose door switch mount.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya:

Cannot get door open (and there is food inside). Push button goes in all the way, will not release door latch

Disconnect from the mains supply.
Remove the cover and you will see how the latches lift.
Hope that helps.

Turntable doesn't rotate

Your turntable motor need replacement. tip upside down with dish removed and gain access to turntable motor from underneath.(remove power plug before you start working on the m/wave.) 2 screws hold the small t/table motor in place.Unscrew both and pull motor upwards. Quote the info on the motor for a replacement. I find cooking isnt effected in any wayexcept if you want to bake things like cakes. It then requires the t/table motor.

I have a microwave oven i purchased jan/07.Themodel#nn-s605wf,serial#6BN6040597,. mY TURNTABLE will not turn can you tell me why.THANKS

Remove the glass turntable, then the roller ring. Then seta glas of water in the unit and turn it on for 5 to 10 seconds. Look through the door window and see if the drive hub is rotating. If it is, then check the underside of the glass table to match up the drive hub. If it isn't turming, the drive, then it is internal and should have a 1 yr warrantee minimum. Remember, the, the turntable and drive must engage each other and the roller ring in place. Good Luck, and let me know please. One more thing, make sure there isn't a Turntable on/off swirch set in the off position. Good Luck, Ne

T993 - Positive Lock Switch ?

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

Sounds like the door switches are out of adjustment or broken.
I would take it to a shop for repair. Microwaves are almost always repaired affordably unless it is really old.
Hope ya fix it!
