How to install turntable motor in kenmore 72169072900


You can find helpful exploded views and find parts by entering your full model number (72169072900) at the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

Remove the glass tray and turn the oven on it side to get to the bottom base plate.

If you look at the diagram titled "base plate parts" you'll see the access panel on the bottom in the center that has to be removed to get to the turntable motor screws.

On some models, you have to cut the metal strips holding the panel in place, then during reassembly use a screw to reattach it. In some cases, the cover has to be rotate 180 degrees before reinstallation.

You then unplug the connectors on the turntable wires, then remove the screws holding the turntable motor, gently lift it out and also ease the turntable off the motor shaft.

I have a Kenmore microwave model 721.61820100 and the turntable wheels just broke. Which part do I need to replace it. The glass part is not broken, just the wheels on which it rotates on.


The part you need is the turntable support. Sears shows the part on their parts site, and here's another source that I use. The support just slides onto the motor shaft through the hole in the bottom of the oven.

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 not turning all the time


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. You may have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.
