Question about Microwave Ovens
I am looking for the part that goes to the above microwave made by matag Part number 58001050. It is the Turntable shaft. On each website I go to the part is listed as out of production and no replacement is suggested. Do you have a recommendation on what replacement I can use? Or is there a replacement for the motor that I can use that will work and fit in the hole made by the current unit?
Fixya does not sell replacement turntable shafts and knows of no sources.

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 cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.
We have the full service manual for this oven, and have uploaded it to our site here.
The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

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.

SOURCE: turntable shaft
In case some local appliance shops or appliance parts stores may have one setting duty on the shelf, the part number was 58001050.
Do you still have the old part? Can you post a photo of it?
J.B. Weld brand epoxy might fix it, if applied sparingly... you may have to get creative...
You can check eBay or Wal-Mart and other stores to see if they have a Rubbermaid or Nordic Ware (NordicWare) wind-up turntable like this "Micro-Go-Round". (I've seen them at Wal-Mart recently). It's shown below.
If you find one, you can plug the shaft hole with a rubber plug from the hardware store and use this.
