    We have a GE spacemaker microwave jvm1650ch01. The turntable has stopped rotating - but it sounds like it is trying. Sometimes it moves an inch or so. The grinding sound makes it seem like the motor still is working. We just turn it off with each use to silence it.

    Can this be repaired?

Hi,

There are many different models that use the same motor for the turntable. If your unit is the model # JVM1842BD001 you need the motor # WB26X10038 if you have the JVM1460SJ you need the motor #WB26X10135. You should be ok using a motor from a different model as long as all the numbers and wires match to the original motor itself. BTW, these motors sell on auction sites for about $20-30

Turntable stopped turning one day last week. Will turn slowly without glass plate on spindle, but not with any weight. Is there a schematic for turntable drive somewhere?


If the oven is STILL heating, but the carousel isn't turning, this problem is commonly attributed to a turntable motor that has worn out and may need to be replaced. The motor is attached to the center plastic piece (called a turntable shaft, turntable ring or coupler) under the middle of the glass tray. The following link explains how to access and replace the motor:

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

This is a very simple repair, that usually is not expensive. The price will be determined by the model and manufacturer. This repair can also be performed on an over the range model microwave oven WITHOUT uninstalling it.

You can refer to any of the following websites for comparison:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites listed have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with locating and properly identifying the part(s) you may need.

The average price for a motor is about $25 to $45. If your model number is not listed at all the sites, use the part numbers from the Sears site and use them for your search criteria. The model numbers don't always cross reference, but the part numbers do. The part number for a replacement turn table motor for the model you have listed is WB26X10038 (listed as item 43). If your model number does not cross reference to all websites, use the part number from the Sears website as your search criteria.


NOTE: Even though the carousel may not be turning, you can still use the microwave while awaiting parts. You will need to physically rotate whatever you are heating about midway through the cook time to ensure even heating. Early model microwave ovens were not equipped with a rotating carousel and this was the common procedure.

The average price for a motor is about $45. The coupler is less than $10. If you have any questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have a 1993 1000 wt microwave the turntable was not work are there still parts these are the numbers I can find on the door 565383 10/01 ( model) HG34314163 ( serial)


You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

NOTE: Enter your model number like this: 56-5383-10-01

The typical turntable system 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.

I had the same problem. You need to replace the turntable motor. I used a local appliance repair shop and they charged $45 for the motor plus $65 labor(a house call). I just checked with searspartsdirect.com and they have the motor(part # WB26X10038) for $22.27. Oh well, at least it works.

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 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 usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

Need replacement glass turntable for inside a Galanz microwave, serial number HT0704046995


If you know the size (diameter) of the turntable, it would be much easier just to find another one of the same size rather than finding the exact part as the number matches nothing.

you may find a replacement one from the link below, just look for one with the same dimensions and it should work

Microwave turntable does not turn


I have the exact microwave you do (ems8000w), the motor failed and I found this one worked perfectly as a replacement.

The original is impossible to find.

Your turntable motor is shot. It's simple to remove and replace. you don't even have to take the microwave out of the shelf. To remove it take out seven screw around the perimeter of the bottom. Lift up on back of bottom to get over clips on the back. Remove the two screws holding the motor in and detach the plug. Find a electrical repair shop for you make pick it up and replace it. When replacing it take out plate and hold plate key down and align flat side of shaft on motor with the plate key.
