Glass plate turntable won't spin any more

The glass plate (which you set food on top of) which normally spins around inside of the microwave won't spin anymore. I just noticed it wasn't rotating our food around. It is 1 1/2 years old. Any suggestions?

    It was manufactured in 2005. It is a GE XL1800 spacesaver and was installed 1 1/2 years old. Does that mean I need a repair man or is replacing a belt a do it yourself project? GE said they will come out for $69.99. Thanks for your advice. This is very helpful!

No microwave 1.5 yrs old has a belt - they're all motor driven

If you are a handyman or good with tools, its a do it yourself job. But first open it up and check if teh belt has snapped or just slipped off. The belt will just cost you a few bucks.

The belt has snapped. You have not said what what make or how old your micro is.

One of my glass top plates doesn't work, it goes red and then turns off. How can I fix it?

I have no idea what you're talking about. Glass top plates? In a microwave oven? All I know is the glass turntable tray. And if it's not turning around, you either have that feature turned off (a dedicated button on the control panel), or else the turntable motor is bad.

The motor for the turntable is working fine, but the connection to the glass plate is so poor that it usually slips instead of turning the plate. This happens if anything larger than a glass of water is...

The glass plate has to be correctly seated on the drive spindle before you can have any hope of reliable rotation. Place the plate on the spindle and spin it gently until it seats.

PLMVZ169HCA Turntable slips on the glass plate

hmmm? me's thinking about this one!!!!
the glass plate has drive dogs on the bottom of it, that fit into drive dogs on the turn table, if its not meshed up right it just spins freely and normaly throw's the glass plat off??? are the bearing that are under the glass plate turning freely? thats the big ring that the plate rides on near the out side edge of the plate, and can be taken out for cleaning??? it looks like a hoop with 3 or 4 rollers in it??? if you forgot to put this bit back in the right way up after cleaning it thats the problem???

Is it possible to take the glass plate out, if so, please remove the glass plate, switch on the microwave for 10 secs and watch through the door to see if you can see the centre spindle turning round? Try this and get back to me please

Revolving plate no longer rotates . All else works, it continu;es to cook, but we need to move the items of food from time to time

Remove the plate, and check if the square shaped gear that normally spins the turntable is rotating.

If it is rotating, then replace the turntable gear.

If it is not rotating that means that the motor that spins the microwave turntable does not rotate, and must be replaced.

GE Spacemaker - microwave works but the inside plate doesn't spin

you have a bad turntable motor or a bad control board.. start with the motor 9 time out of 10 this is your problem.. you can pick up this part at your local parts house or order online.. look for universal part. this will be alot cheaper then the oem.. just take the screws out of bottom panel under microwave. panel will drop down. you will see little round motor about 2in' make sure unit is unplugged.
