NOTHING in a microwave should ever be on fire. Depending on the damged cause by even a small fire, the repair may be involved and costly. Inspect stirrer motor by removing bottom of microwave with power off. Note damage and replace stirrer motor and wiring harness as needed along with turn table drive block. Check to make sure all connections with all wires are sound with no exposed copper wires or shorts of any kind. Test always using a cup or bowl of water.

Microwave continues heating even when off


The microwave has a short. You need to replace it, there's no real fix for it. Keep it unplugged and dispose of it. It will eventually catch on fire, and this isn't an exaggeration.

Either the coupler that is located in the center of the oven cavity that the turntable sits on is defective or the turn table motor is defective. . Either repair is rather simple (coupler being the easiest) with parts available online.

MICROWAVE TURNTABLE DOES NOT ROTATE WHEN IT IS TSWITCHED ON.


Make sure your plate is accurately centered onto the brown circle with wheels. And make sure your brown circle has all of it's wheels, and make sure that's centered into the middle piece. If all else fails, it's likely the microwave belt that turns the table has broke off or fell off. You might wanna check the bottom of it, you'll need a screw driver for that.

Also note: Microwaves can still cook food even if the table does not turn, older microwaves didn't have this feature. Good luck and please rate my answer

Roper microwave caught a paper towel on fire.


Why is this even a question?

Of course a paper towel can get hot enough to catch fire in a microwave. In addition, anything not specifically identified as microwave safe can melt, deform, crack, chip, spark, catch fire, explode, etc...
This is not a microwave problem.
