Why would the turntable stop turning and the unit stop heating?


hi,
there is a micro switch that signals when the door is closed. this tells the machine that it's okay to start the turntable and heating process.. if the micro switch breaks or shorts out then the switch does not send the signal so the machine does not work.

My Micro will not heat and it keeps beeping I can not get it to stop...


Its likely beeping as it is not heating, I presume light goes out when door closed and a turntable turns or not?

I can provide possible reasons for no heating etc.

My Maytag microwave stopped heating. Everything


Generally the magnetron (the part that heats the food) is the cause if everything else still works. Unfortunately replacing the magnetron is barely cheaper than buying a new microwave though you can check out repairclinic.com to decide whether you want to attempt replacing the part.

Let me know how this works out for you.

My sharp R-798 has stopped heating food and the turntable no longer rotates?


Please check your door safey interlock micro switches.

If you need help with this, please let me know.

What frequently happens is because you probably open the door while the oven is running, (like most of us do) the little micro switches get burned and eventually cannot tell the oven that the door IS, indeed, closed. When the door is "open" (forget that you know the door is closed - the MACHINE needs to know it too) the oven will not turn on the heat.

If you need more info, let me know please.

Unit turns on, turntable turns, but nothing heats


Classic symptoms for failed door interlock safety switches, though it could be other trouble.

Remove the cover and check the operation of the little micro switches that operate when you close the door.

DONT TOUCH THE SILVER CAN - LETHAL.

If you regularly open the door while cooking, the contacts in these little switches become burned. When burned badly enough, they cannot make contact. When they cannot make contact, the mocrowave doesnt know the door is closed and will not turn on the magnatron resulting in no heat.

If you need more help, let me know.

Sharp 1505 over counter microwave


It's almost certainly not a switch issue. If the primary interlock (lower door switch) were bad, the turntable and cooling fan would not come on and it would not heat.

If it heats, but the turntable won't work, the motor is likely bad.

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 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. In some brands, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.
