Question about Danby DMW1145 Stainless Steel Microwave Oven

Microwave plate doesn't fit on cog?!

My Microwave is like any other really. A cog, a turning ring and a glass plate on top. Howevever if I put the ring in, and the plate on top, the plate does not come anywhere near close to touching the cog. So of course it won't turn.

I asked for a new ring, I got the same one. I asked for a new plate and again I got the same one. Is this just a blatant design flaw?

I'm thinking it's either just a blatant design flaw or the glass plate itself is the wrong one. The system this one uses just doesn't even come close to working properly. Once the plate is on the ring, it is about a half centemetre off the cog.

I know this is probably DUMB of me to say, But some with this type of turntable arrangement, The ring would only set one way. The ring did not turn, but rather the wheels faced up and rolled with, and supported the turntable.

Hi, we have a Bosch HMT8656GB integrated microwave (fitted in 2007) and in the last 2 weeks or so, the glass tray on the bottom of the microwave has stopped going round when the machine is in use, however,...


Replacement of the turntable motor should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair service.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

But here is a basic method if you are mechanically minded and have electrical safety knowledge.

I am assuming the plastic coupler is not split or broken and causing the problem.

The motor assembly is fixed to the base of the oven usually with two screws and access is obtained usually by removing the inspection plate directly beneath the motor. It is usually a plug in synchronous motor that revolves at a few revs per minute but the plastic cogs in the motors gear box fail and the motor assembly must be replaced. They are fairly inexpensive and obtainable usually from a domestic appliance repair shop.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity and turn it upside down if it is a tabletop model, a little more complicated if it is built in!
Remove the inspection plate, sometimes it must be cut out with sharp cutters, and disconnect the motor. Remove the motor and go and get a new one. Fit the new motor and fit the inspection cover back on the base by turning it to fit and using an extra screw fix it then put the microwave back in its position. Plug it back in, with the turntable and plate. Put a cup of water on the plate inside of the oven and heat for 20 seconds to check the plate goes round.
Hope this helps.

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???
