Sharp calls that the turntable coupler when it's a separate part.

If it's part of the the part with three legs, that is called the turntable support.

You can order Sharp parts from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com

If yours is model R1610, we actually have that full service manual on our site at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r1610_sm.pdf

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Sharp carousel microwave


Sometimes, bits of food get behind the microwave generator mica cover and cause this EXACT problem they short out the microwave energy and spark. . It is NOT broken but DONT let this happen for more than a few seconds. !!!! You will see the Mica (looks like plastic) cover from inside the oven and will be on one of the sides.It looks oblong normally, It is actually transparent to Microwaves and is how they get from the generator in to the oven. Give it a real good clean around the edges or better still take it out to clean. and it should be fine

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.

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.

Plastic peice that fits under plate inside micowave that makes it rotate


If the model number you have this question listed under is correct, there are two possible parts based on your question. There is the carousel ring, that turns the glass tray, and there is the small plastic coupler that the center of the glass tray is supported by. The part numbers are as follows:

Carousel ring - WB06X10513
Coupler - WB06X10564

You can view and excellent exploded view diagram of this microwave at pcappliancerepair.com. The parts I mention are listed under Diagram 1151005 as items 84 and 101 respectively.

To replace the coupler, you simply remove the glass tray and gently pry straight up. The coupler will pull off of the turn table motor shaft. Insert the new coupler and press on to the shaft.

If this is not the correct model number, please post back with your correct information so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope this helps you.

Turn table


See the following suggestions from Repairclinic:

The carousel won't turnAlthough 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.

Sharp carousel II microwave/convection oven


The question is... Do you want to put money on a 18year MW, or put it towards a new one? I must admit I love the SHARP Combo MW Convection ovens. I own two. One is almost 25years old. The mechanical Timer Type, but they work great and I can maintain them with 30years ef exrerience. I am now retired.
It does sound like the Magnetronhas broken down, however it could be other things in the Secondary (High Voltage Side). The High Voltage Side is made up of the Secondary HV side of the High Voltage Transformer, A High Voltage Diode, a High Voltage Capacitor, and the Magnetron. The High Voltage Side is DANGEROUS, and CAUTION should be taken to protect yourself against EXTREME HIGH VOLTAGE. unplug from power and DISCHARGE High Voltage Capaciton to frame GROUND before touching anything!!!!

Check that the plastic connector from your motor to the turn table is not broken , mine broke and it took weeks to solve the problem. Try rotating the part that protrude into the oven. If you can turn it by hand it is broken, lucky cheap to replace
