Re: ohms

2.5k - 4k ohms approx.

But their failure is not usually with the windings, but the gears.

Your best bet is to grasp the motor shaft and try to gently turn it with your fingertips or a pair of pliers.

If it whirs / whines and turns, it's okay, but if it fails to turn or click and grinds, it's bad.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here:

check every step and fix it God bless youOK, get ready, this micrwave oven repair can take some time. This is where you must be able to read a wiring diagram and do some "live" checks on parts. First easy check is to make sure power is coming off your control board at the MW relay. Make sure of the wires and test here, if you have 120 volts at this point, you have ruled out a lot of parts that could be the problem. You have now ruled out any switch problems, control board problems, or a thermostat or 2.
If you do not have power from that MW relay on the control board, you must trace the wiring back to see if the proper voltage is going through your switches, any thermostats, and arriving at your control board. Your wiring diagram on your sheet will show you where and what to test. Below is a general switch test troubleshooting guide.


mwswitchtest2.jpgIf the proper voltage is coming into your control board and you are not getting voltage at the MW relay, then you need to replace the control board. If voltage is interupted by a thermostat or switch from your testing to the control board, then replace that part.
Now, testing from the MW relay on to your transformer, high voltage capacitor, magnetron, and diode.Do not do any voltage reading from the secondary side of the transformer on, this can be a deadly microwave oven repair if you do not follow directions. This can result in electrocution and the "blowing-up" of your voltmeter, only do OHM testing with the power off and the capacitor discharged. Someplace in this circuit, usually before the transformer, you will have another thermostat to test. It is usually mounted on the magnetron. Do a quick OHM test to see if it is open or closed.
Now to test either the transformer, high voltage capicitor, magnetron, and diode, you must test each part separately. A good rule of thumb, if your capacitor is bad, change the diode also. Another note, if you are working on an OTR model and you have determined to be one of these "heating" circuit parts, you can not test these parts until you take the unit down. If you don't have the parts with you and you have to order them, order the magnetron, capacitor and diode and you will have a 90% chance of solving the problem. If it is an older microwave, order the thermostat also, most times you can return un-used, un-opened parts. Check with your parts supplier. This way you only have to take the unit down once.
To test these parts, scroll down this page and you will see a chart with component tests. Follow the instructions to find which part(s) are defective in your microwave oven repair.
Microwave Runs, Heats, but turntable does not move This is a fairly easy one. First, make sure the turntable coupler under the glass dish is not broken. Second, on the control board, find the turntable relay and test for voltage. Some turntable motors are 24 volts DC, so make sure your testing the correct voltage. If no voltage from the control board, then replace the control board. Otherwise head towards the turntable motor.
On OTR models, you can get to the motor by un-screwing the bottom panel on the microwave. On countertop models, there will either be a knockout or screw on access panel. Check for voltage at the motor. If no voltage, check the wiring back towards the control. If voltage, then replace the turntable motor. The component list below also shows how to test a turntable motor.

My microwave is still working but not rotating, what is wroong with it

There's a turntable motor in the bottom of the oven that drives a turntable support directly in some models, and a plastic coupling that rotates the turntable in others. Turntable motor failure is common, or there could be connections in the power to the motor that have gone bad. Sometimes the plastic of the turntable coupling cracks, and the motor shaft turns but the turntable doesn't.

You can check a turntable motor with an ohmmeter. A good motor will show fairly low resistance (a few hundred ohms or less) between its terminals, while a very high or infinite reading means it's bad. In most models of oven you get at the motor through and access panel on the bottom. Replacement motors for many brands are available, although they're not always easy to find.

It may be more economical to replace the oven if it's a basic counter top model. They are under $50 these days, and a replacement motor might cost $20 or more. Of course, you can continue to use the oven even if the turntable doesn't, you'll just need to turn the food yourself occasionally during cooking.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

The turntable on our XL1400 stopped working. Is

the diskmotor is defect?
mesure the resistor of the motor with reduction under the plate the value must be bethween 60 and 100 Ohm.
if not the coil is burnd and you have to replace the motor.

Replacing Microwave turntable motor

if they are physically alike use it,the units are both120 volt units,you cant operate a 210 volt motor on 120 volts w/o an inverter furthermore it would be 220 volts for that type of motor,its just a production run #

Ultrex microwave turntable won't turn

turn table motor may be going bad.. it is almost impossible to diagnose untill it stops working completely.. when it stops working completely you can test for 120v down at the motor if you get 120v you need to replace the motor.

Sanyo Microwave EMS 8000W Turntable motor failed need a replacment?

About the only option is to carefully take the motor apart and see if one of the pins that holds one of the gears has broken.

If you're very careful, you can use super glue to glue parts back in place, but they have to be squeaky clean and dry before applying glue and they must be clamped in placed to bond.

Be sure you hold it shaft side down when you pull the outer cover off.

Good luck!

Microwave turntable does not turn

I have the exact microwave you do (ems8000w), the motor failed and I found this one worked perfectly as a replacement.

The original is impossible to find.

1 x 120v Microwave Turntable Motor 6RPM 4W # F63265G60AP (F63265G60AP) = $14.99
Good luck.
