Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Bought a brand new Kenmore Microwave Model 66227, turntable seems noisy. Took the plastic spinner out and reinserted in base, doesn't seem to be any blockage. Sometimes louder than others...does it depend on where the food is placed or how heavy it is? Thanks.

We just installed a Kenmore 85600 over the range microwave. It is brand new in the box but we bought it from someone. We just got it installed and it doesn't heat anything. Does that mean the magn


Yes! it is a real possibility, or the inverter board is defective. Since it is brand new, have the person who you bought it from take it back to the place of purchase because he is the original buyer and the one with the warranty.

Microwave lights, clock, and everything works except when you press start, it just counts down like its cooking, but the microwave is actually not on. No hum as usual or plate rotating. It just counts...


Hi, one of the most common reasons why the turntable won't rotate is that the microwave isn't clean. The turntable guide and carousel can get sticky, preventing the turntable from properly moving. If you have built-on food particles or liquids, fill a bowl with 2 or 3 cups of water and 1 tsp. of liquid detergent and lemon. Run the microwave for about 3 minutes. Clean the microwave with a cloth, including the base of the turntable, guide, carousel grooves and microwave base. Your microwave turntable won't rotate if the grooves on the base of the turntable do not sit right on the carousel. Also, check the position of the turntable guide. Place the guide directly under the turntable. Remove the turntable, and then reposition it into the carousel grooves.
Motor The carousel motor is located beneath the base plate of the microwave. If the carousel isn't turning at all, check the motor. Disconnect the microwave from the power source, and remove the turntable, guide and base plate. Try turning the motor to see if it's just stuck. If it doesn't turn freely after a few seconds, examine the motor to see if it's burned out or corroded. Use an ohmmeter to see if the motor has continuity. If not, you must replace the motor.
Bushings The drive bushings are plastic components that sit underneath the cooking plate. Remove the plate, and examine the bushings. Use a magnifying glass if necessary to see if any debris is caught in the plastic. Clean the bushings, and reinsert the plate. Turn the microwave on to see if it rotates. If the bushings are extremely worn or if some of the plastic is broken off, you need to replace it, which is a complicated repair for consumers. Contact a service technician for assistance.

Cookworks microwave oven with grill and convection model cmx60 - I need new glass turntable unable to sourced bought from Argus about three years ago please help.


Microwave turntables are in several sizes

Here are a couple of sources for them. What you have to take note of is the wheel tray also. You may get the right size turntable and not fit the wheel tray. Manufacturer is not as important as the size and tray fitting.

This one seems a bit small at 10 inches but as your microwave is only 800 Watts it may just be the correct one :

The paint (or whatever it is covering the bottom)


Check the 3 wheels on the circular plastic part that's fitted below the turntable.
It sounds like they may need some filing down. Run your fingers around the wheels to see if there are any sharp bits of plastic that could be cutting into the paintwork on the base.

Clean out the base of your oven and apply a thin film of vaseline to each of the 3 wheels. This will help rotation in future.
Remember to keep cleaning out any excess food particles that may lodge below the turntable, as these will eventually slow down or stop the rotation, which in turn means that your food is not heated evenly throughout!!!

Flashing is occurring around the plastic turntable piece which is causing it to melt. Took off and saw that the enamel was pitted around the turntable opening. When I remove the plastic turntable piece, no...


It sounds like you are talking about the turntable tray adapter in the bottom.
What usually causes arcing is the reaction of the RF (microwave) energy acting on carbon. It's great that the motor and orifice are OK. Sounds like you just need to replace the T/T adapter. If the paint is pitted or altered, you need to use a special catalytic paint for microwave cavities to touch it up. The paint's main purpose is to protect the metal from rust but it is a high temperature paint to stand up to the higher temperature of that environment.

Whirlpool otr microwave


Once i opened up the microwave, I found that some kind of capacitor or something (had two wires going to it) had fell down on top of the fan. I had to rig the plastic mounting bracket and re-attach it to a panel inside. That took care of the rubbing noise. It turned out that some one had unplugged the wire that powered the turntable. That took care of that. it seems to work fine now. Steve

Turntable will not turn


If everything works, light and micro heating.. then I have 4 possibles for you to check... 1st make sure you don't have a button that allow you to turn the turntable on/off... 2nd take the glass table out and check the center plastic spinner(pull it out) and see if its broken. 3rd your turntable motor is bad, and 4th the relay for your turntable on control board is bad... helpfully that will do it for ya.. good luck.. mike

Turntable doesn't turn


If you just purchased and Installed the microwave, I would call Sears and tell them what is happening, generally, it would still be under warranty if less than a year old. If its a countertop model, you may have to take it in, otherwise they should come to the home for the repair. I would also NOT indicate that you have looked at it as that would void your warranty.
Otherwise, it seems like the problem could be, a) touchpad , b) a relay or c) the main control board
