From my understanding your Frigidaire microwave continues to run and when you press the second key your turntable will turn. This sounds like a potential issue with your keypad or control panel. I would recommend performing a reset on your microwave and you can do that by disconnecting power from it for at least ten minutes. This will help clear out any miscommunications within your microwave. If that does not correct your issue I would suggest seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt
Is it still heating food properly? You can perform a basic test with a microwave safe mug or plastic cup of water. It should be boiling or too hot to touch within 1 to 2 minutes. Be careful not to overheat the cup if plastic and use extreme caution when touching or removing it from the microwave.
If it is not heating properly then the magnetron may be faulty and unit should be replaced.
Can you tell what specifically is speeding and slowing? Is it the turntable or the humming sound of the unit itself? Many microwaves vary their intensity in order to heat/cook evenly and that will vary the pitch of the sound you hear and sound like it is speeding up or slowing down. If the turntable is slowing and speeding up then there may be a bad motor and the unit should probably be replaced.
If the unit is heating adequately and the turntable speed is uniform then what you may be hearing is simple power cycling and/or fan noise.
Only trained and certified technicians should attempt repair of microwaves due to the hazards of high voltage and microwave radiation leakage if parts are not replaced properly. Although you can have a microwave repaired the cost may be equal to, or higher than, the cost of an equivalent new unit for a 900w microwave.
inside the cabinet, there is (usually) a belt that turns that gear, you will have to unplug the unit and take off the cover to get at it, probably has some grit in the belt or such, also look for missing teeth
I have the same exact problem with one of my 1210 MK2 turntables. It seems like the motor is too slow now. When I hit the start button or release the record, it takes much longer to speed up to the normal speed than my other same exact turntable. I don't think it has anything to do with the pitch slider. Please let me know if you find out what the problem is thanks!
