Question about Microwave Ovens
If you are talking about the little piece that the center of the tray sits on (not the carousel ring), its called the coupler. Its actually made of plastic on all the microwave ovens I've ever worked on. I've never seen one made of glass. It connects to the turn table motor shaft. If you post back with a complete model number, I may be able to assist you in locating a part number.
If the coupler is not physically broken, you may be identifying the wrong part as your problem. The turntable is driven by a small motor which is mounted under the bottom panel of the oven. The coupler is mounted to the shaft of the motor and the glass tray sits on the coupler.
Post back and let me know if you need a coupler, or if your motor isn't turning. You can tell by removing the glass tray and pulling straight up on the coupler. It should come off the motor shaft in one piece. If its not broken, your motor probably needs replaced.
