Most microwave ovens have a door on the bottom of the oven to access the turntable motor - I am not familiar with a Sears in particular, but if the door is not already cut free and held with a screw, it could be like a Panasonic Microwave whereby you have to cut through side-by-side holes to create your own door on the bottom - then you should be able to access the motor and remove it's screw(s) and wires - It the door is one you had to make, then they will have it created so you have tabs to line up, but you need a screw to hold it in place

You can find a helpful exploded view here.

The best place to order parts for this brand is Tritronics. Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835. Their Web site will be down until Jan. 2nd.

You remove the bottom cover, then there are two screws holding the motor in place.

Here's my generic help file:

NOTES ON REPLACING TURNTABLES & COUPLERS

Copyright 2007 by William E. Miller - MicrowaveDisplay.com

UNPLUG THE OVEN FROM THE WALL FIRST OR YOU WILL EXPOSE YOURSELF TO LETHAL VOLTAGES!

Note that I am not encouraging you to work on electrical items if you are not qualified, and I assume no liability for any consequences of your decision to do so.

When replacing the turntable coupler on most models, it is necessary to loosen or remove the screws that mount the turntable motor to the bottom of the chassis.

It is usually easier to do this with the microwave oven on its right (heaviest) side because you will need two hands for alignment.

Be sure to put a towel or similar cushion on the work surface to avoid scratching the oven wrapper (oven cover) or the work surface.

It is not necessary to remove the wrapper or the wires from the turntable motor itself, but you may need to remove a small metal duct covering the turntable motor if your oven has one.

It should only be held on by one or two screws.

Although a broken coupler may come out easily or even fall out, the new coupler will not go in without at least loosening the turntable motor.

Look at the hole in the new coupler. You'll notice it has (most do have) a flat side to it. That flat side will line up with the flat side on the motor shaft.

When the old coupler is out and the motor is loose, you can ease the new coupler in the hole with one hand while turning the coupler very slightly back and forth as you gently push the motor toward it. Do not force the part in.

When the coupler has mated properly with the motor, you should feel it go in.

Be sure it's right, or you may break the new coupler or bend the mounting ears of the motor when you attempt to tighten the screws.

Reassemble in reverse order.

The turntable stopped on my sears microwave. how do i fix it?


There is either a direct drive motor under the platter, in the center of the microwave, or there is a motor off to the side, either on top of or under the cavity., that has a rubber belt, like a rubber band that drives the turntable...belt is broken, or there is not power to either kind of motor...use a mutimeter if you have one or a light bulb made to light with 110 volts...hope this helps...if the motor is burnt up replace it..if there is no power to the motor leads...then the main control board if probabley bad...

How do i change the turntable motor on a sears 72163259301


Go to the bottom of the oven - they have several side-by-side holes that when you cut through the little bit of material between the holes, allows you to create your own door - inside should be your turntable motor - Again this is a standard type location - Commercial units may not have turntables, but the 'stirrer' is instead located below the plain table on which you rest your food

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the microwave turntable doesn't turn the touchpad and control panel might be defective. This is not common. Test the turntable motor first.





Touchpad

If the microwave turntable doesn't turn and the touchpad has a button to turn the turntable on and off the touchpad might be defective. Check the turntable motor first, that is more likely.





User Control and Display Board

If the microwave turntable doesn't turn the turntable motor might be worn out. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace. If the motor is good, the user control and display board may be defective.




Main Control Board

If the microwave turntable doesn't turn the turntable motor is usually the problem. If the motor is good the main control board might be defective

Turntable on Kenmore Elite will not turn?


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.

If you don't have your owner's manual, you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.

That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they will ask you to register.

Many times, the owner's manual will have the installation instructions inside.

If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the
Sears parts site.

That's where you could also order any needed parts and find handy exploded parts views.

Turntable roller rest


It's called either the turntable coupler or the turntable support, depending on your model number. You can visit the Sears parts Web site at http://www3.sears.com/ and enter your full model number and see exploded view diagrams, parts lists, and order the part. Or you can call Sears parts at 1-800-252-1698.

Microhood turntable not working


You can find an exploded view of your microwave at http://www3.sears.com (yes, the 3 is there). Ref # 3009 on the drawing is the turntable motor. I would grab it by the shaft and gently try to turn it. If it's locked up or grinding, that's a sign it's bad. It runs $24.49 plus shipping: Part Description: Quantity: Part Number: Model Number: Price: TT MOTOR 6549W1S013D 721.64663300 $ 24.49 $ 24.49 Be sure to unplug the oven before you work on it. Hope this helps!
