It's usually probably a failed turntable motor, but you should double-check the coupler, too.

Sharp microwave (R-959m) turntable not moving


Sounds like a new turntable motor is required.

Replacing the turntable motor.

The motor assembly is fixed to the base of the oven usually with two screws and access i obtained by removing the inspection plate directly beneath the motor. It is usally a plug in synchronus 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 and disconnect the motor. Remove the motor and go and get a new one. Re fit it and 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.

Microwave turns on but doesn't heat. Turntable does not rotate


The magnetron (the part that heats the food) is probably done, they tend to go out if the fuse didn't blow and it usually isn't worth fixing as the cost of the magnetron is almost what it would cost to buy a new microwave.
Sorry for the bad news.

Turntable isn't working on our microwave model PLMV168. My wife defrosted a large item that was to big to rotate and forgot to turn the turntable off. After that it quit working. Is there a belt that might...


The turntable system typically consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

Here is a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here. I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.

I have a Sharp 930 Convection Microwave that is no longer rotating. Any help?


This problerm is commonly attributed to a turntable motor that is no longer working. If the model number you posted this question under is correct, the part number for a replacement turntable motor is 46-841666-3. You may also consider replacing the turntable coupler (also called the turntable shaft). The part number is NCPL-A021WRFO. If your existing coupler is still in good shape, there is no need to replace it.

Replacement parts can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com. There is a complete list of helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with parts identification/location.

If you need instructions on how to replace a turntable motor, the following link explains:

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Sharp carousel model number R-930ak + parts The plate inside does not spin sounds like a cheap plastic gear on the bottom is worn out and stripped. MAkes a clicking sound


This problem is commonly caused by a turntable motor that has worn out and needs replaced. The following link explains how to access and replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3555716-replacing_a_turntable_motor_on_a_microwa

For the model number you have listed, the part number is 46-841666-3.

You can purchase replacement parts at searspartsdirect.com.

The site also offers helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you in parts location/identification. The motor is listed at item 001-20 under the "Cabinet" heading. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: You also consider the turn table coupling, which is item 004-22. The underside of the coupling has a keyed slot that fits on to the turn table motor shaft. If the coupling becomes cracked, or if the keyed slot "rounds out", it may be slipping on the motor shaft and not turning.

Microwave turntable won't turn


Most likely the turntable motor itself is bad - not an uncommon problem for that model.

unfortunately, the particular motor used in your model is rather expensive - + - $50

Has anyone replaced the Turntable Coupling?


You will need to remove the motor to get it off.

We have the full R-930AK/AW service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print it.

Here's the procedure:

1. Disconnect the oven from power supply. Remove the turntable tray, and the turntable support out
of the oven cavity.
2. Turn the oven upside down and remove one (1) screw holding the turntable motor cover to the base plate and take off the turntable motor cover.
3. Disconnect wire lead from the turntable motor.
4. Remove the two (2) screws holding the turntable motor and coupling mounting plate to the oven cavity bottom.
5. Turntable motor, Coupling mounting plate and Thermal protection plate bottom will be free.

GE turntable microwave Je1540WW 002 Turntable doesn't turn


I have had the turn table motor go defective in microwave ovens.

Normaly, before ordering a new motor, I always checked to make sure that there was power going to the motor assembly. I never had a power drive failure to a motor so-far. When they did not spin, the motor was defective. But, one day there will be a first time for me.

The fix was to purchase a new motor from the manufacture and install it. In some cases, I had to also replace the spindle key because the original broke when trying to remove it when removing the motor assembly.

I suggest that for servicing a microwave oven, you give it out to a service center to have the work done. There are safety issues when working on microwave ovens.
