Kitchenaid microwave turn table doesn't work I replaced motor still doesn't work


Is it set to be off via the control panel?

You can download Kitchenaid / Whirlpool owner's manuals, installation manuals, and parts lists here.

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

You can see and hear 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.

In some brands, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.
