Question about Microwave Ovens

My Matag Microwave needs a turntable shaft

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?

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.

Good luck!

Phillips microwave oven vt255/bl tuntable does not rotate


HELLO.

The turntable is the unit in the center of a microwave that you set your food on. It rotates during the microwave cycle, making sure all parts of a dish are properly heated. These are typically made of either hard glass or microwave-safe plastic.

Your microwave turntable may not turn due to one of these problems explain below



(1)If your turntable is removable (as many are for cleaning purposes), it may have come loose from this turning mechanism.place the turntable properl on the turning mechanism.



(2)If your turntable was previously working and now does not any longer, check the settings on your microwave's LCD display to make sure you haven't accidentally turned off the turntable.


Most microwaves have different settings that the user can select with the press of a button, like a "Defrost" setting or a "Popcorn" setting. Certain microwaves may stop the turntable from turning during certain pre-programmed selection modes. Stop your microwave and don't use a pre-programmed mode. Instead, just specify the time using the number pads and start your microwave to see if your turntable begins to rotate again.



(3)The rotating mechanism on the inside of your microwave that rotates the turntable is actually connected to a small motor on the inside of your microwave's case. If this motor burns out or stops working, the mechanism will stop turning. This is something that needs to be replace.

FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO REPLACE THE FAULTY MOTOR.

THINGS NEEDED.

* screwdrivers

* replacement motor

* specific microwave information and part number


1 Open the microwave door, and carefully remove the turntable tray. Also, remove the frame that the turntable is positioned on. Both the turntable and the frame are not secured in the oven, so removing them is a quick process.

2 Remove the bottom panel of the microwave. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the number of screws securing the panel varies depending on the manufacturer and specific microwave. Once the bottom panel is loosened, disconnect its wiring harness in order to completely remove the panel.

3 Locate the turntable motor. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the motor compartment should be positioned below the center of the microwave. Unscrew the motor, disconnect the wires, and remove it from the microwave.

4 Determine the specific part number for the turntable motor so that a correct replacement can be purchased or ordered. Position the new motor into the shaft in the bottom of the microwave. Screw the motor securely into place.

5 Test the microwave to make sure that the turntable motor is operating correctly. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the motor can make noises if it was not positioned evenly in the shaft. Reconnect all of the wires that were detached when removing the old motor.

6 Reinsthall the microwave's bottom panel parts, and secure all of the screws in place. Reposition the turntable frame in the bottom of the microwave and place the turntable on top of it. Test the microwave in order to make sure that everything is working correctly.

Thanks.

Turntable not working & keys "stick"


8 years old, huh? In my experience, once faulty, may keep on doing so even after fix. So if it were me & I could afford it, I would get a new one with a warranty.

My above the range Maytag Microwave oven plate does not rotate. Bought a new rotator wheel as the old one was broken, and the central spindle will rotate, but not with the plate on it. What can I do?


The spindle (called a turntable shaft) sits atop a small motor shaft from the turntable motor. You either have a weak turntable motor, stripped shaft (which allows the motor shaft to free spin when it has any weight on it), or both.

The turntable motor is located under the bottom panel of the microwave oven. You do not have to uninstall the oven for this repair.

First, unplug the unit, remove the glass carousel tray, and pull straight up on the turntable shaft to remove it. Next, locate and remove the series of screws along the bottom panel underneath the oven. The bottom panel will open exposing the drive motor. The motor comes out by disconnecting the connector plug and a couple of mounting screws.

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, you can view these parts at searspartsdirect.com. Locate items 11 (turntable motor) and 14 (shaft) under the "Cavity" heading. Other sites you may try are pcappliancerepair.com, appliancepartspros.com or repairclinic.com to see if you can find these parts any cheaper.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Turntable has suddenly stopped working.


The turntable motor may be bad, if you've confirmed the switch is working. The motor is located under the bottom of the microwave and has the shaft penetrating through the bottom of the oven cavity with a drive coupler attached. The coupler is what drives the glass carousel tray. The motor can be accessed by unplugging the microwave and removing the bottom panel screws. The motor is held in by a couple of screws and two connecting wires. The coupler will lift up and pull off the motor shaft from inside the oven.

You can view this part and exploded view diagrams of your microwave at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Magnetron and Air Flow" heading for item 6 (part number AP 3119645).

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Matag under oven microwave


You'll have to remove and/or modify the frame & existing mounting plate as required, which may require some amount of cutting and drilling too.

The dimensions of the mount that the new one needs will be detailed in your installation instructions.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download Maytag (made for Whirlpool by L.G.) owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
