Hotpoint OTR Microwave - Carousel Motor Noise

I have a Hotpoint RVM1435WD001 that fails to turn the carousel tray but still heats fine. Just today, it started making a loud rattling/grinding noise and the carousel now turns. Based on the diagram from the Hotpoint Web site, it looks like I should order WB26X10038. How difficult is it to replace the motor assembly that turns the carousel?

You should be able to access the turntable motor if you remove the left side filter under the microwave. Disconnect the power, remove the left filter and look up inside that area, the motor may have a cover or plate over it, if so remove it, the motor will be held in with 2 screws (usually) and there will be 2 quick disconnect wires attached to it. If you cannot get to it that way you may have to remove the bottom of the microwave (underneath), should be only 3 to 5 screws holding it in place, the side to the wall will be hinged, once you pull the screws just let it hang or swing down away from you. Then follow the above directions. Make sure that you are getting the correct motor, there are two types, one is a square shaft (WB26X10037) and the other is a "D" shaped shaft (WB26X10038).

Carousel stopped turning


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
ough the carousel is usually driven by a small motor that's unrelated to the heating function of the microwave, the microwave cabinet needs to be opened to repair it. So we recommend that you seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Inspect the plastic drive coupling that the tray sits on, as well as the ring-and-roller assembly, to make sure that they're working properly

Hello there:
The carousel won't turn Although the carousel is usually driven by a small motor that's unrelated to the heating function of the microwave, the microwave cabinet needs to be opened to repair it.. Inspect the plastic drive coupling that the tray sits on, as well as the ring-and-roller assembly, to make sure that they're working properly. if not replace it and check all of the wiring to the motor with a meter to see if there is any continuity to it if not there is a problem with the motor itself or the wiring harness ok?

Can i still use microwave if carousel does not turn but still heats food


You can but you may have uneven or hot and cold spots present in whatever you are heating. Sounds like the carousel motor has failed, those are replaceable. Good luck !

Sharp microwave stopped working


Is it totally dead? No display? Or just does not cook? If it made an unusual noise before it 'died' something probably shorted out.... You need an ohm meter to troubleshoot. If the fuse is open, switches and HV circuit need to be checked before replacing fuse. Sometimes on the convection Microwaves (not just Sharp) the fuse will 'rust' and open rather than blow. Or the fuse holder can over heat and fail.

My microwave is not turning.The part hold the tray is broken. Not sure the name of the parts.


If the microwave is still heating, but not turning, the part you are talking about is the carousel motor. The carousel itself, is the small ring that the tray sits on.

If the motor is not turning, it can easily be replaced. You will need to remove the bottom panel (under the microwave) to access the motor and connecting wires. The spindle is the shaft that attaches to the carousel motor and is where the center part of the glass tray sits. The spindle simply lifts off the motor shaft.

Since you posted no brand name or model number, I have no idea how to identify a part number for you, or where to order from. If you still need assistance, please let me know. Post back with your information so that I may be able to assist you better. I hope this helps.
