The problem is that the magnatron is not getting power. Chance is that if could be a bolwn fuse inside the unit. If the fuse don't fix it then that leaves the charging diode, capacitor or the magnatron, or high voltage xformer of which without technical epertize I would not recomend attempting to replace. good luck

You need to take apart the oven and fix the turntable gear, then reassemble it, it is not a difficult job. Always work with power unplugged.

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.
To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Two possibilities: either the turntable coupling is broken or the turntable motor has quit. The plastic coupling can wear or crack so it no longer fits properly on the turntable motor shaft. Then even though the motor still turns, the turntable doesn't. Or the motor itself may have stopped working. If the plastic coupling still looks normal and you can't rotate it easily by hand while it's in place, it's probably the motor.
I'm here in the US so I can't suggest where to find parts, but you should be able to locate a supplier who might have replacements available. Of course the oven will still work without the turntable running. You'll have to open the oven occasionally and turn the food yourself to insure even cooking.
