There could be a variety of reasons why this happens, but the likeliest
reason is the secondary interlock or monitor switch is broken. These are micro switches that tell the microwave that the door is closed. If this switch is broken, then the microwave thinks the door is still open and the carousel table won't turn, and the oven will not heat up.
I replaced an interlock switch last Saturday. The switch was $7.00 and took me an hour.
Ask your local repair person to test the interlock and monitor switches first, then go from there.
Hi, Your problem lies with one or both areas. If you remove the glass turn table, you'll see a plastic grooved driver that goes thru the floor. See if you can lift up and remove it. Does it look broken? If not, there is a drive motor underneath that drives this plastic piece which turns the turntable. You'll need the model number to take to your local parts house for replacements. Hope this helps.
Remove the plug and take the turn table out of the microwave cabin. Now keep the microwave rested on the side andopen the back pannel,you can see the turn table belt drive.If this is broken replace.if not trace the motor connection and mark them.Now heat the microwave in normal position,place the turn table and a cup of water.Close the door and switch on the microwave set for a minute.Now check the voltage on the motor line marked.If present ,then the motor is fault.If not the controller board is faulty, and must be traced.Can be the relay drive or the relay. hope the other sections are working fine.
Make sure the turntable guide is lined up properly and there is no debris caught in it. Examine the turn table bushing the tray sits on and make sure it is not worn or broken. Make sure the turntable is sitting down in the groove correctly. Lastly it may be the drive motor itself is bad. This is the small motor that turns the carousel. This motor is very difficult to replace and unless you are qualified you should not attempt this repair and leave it to a professional. This motor will cost from $40 to $75 plus the cost of having it replaced. You may want to consider buying a new microwave if this unit is over 5 years old. You could end up spending more to repair this one than a new one costs. Of course you can use it without the carousel.
You probably have a stick door switch or broken door switch mount.

if you can check the turn table motor for resistance. 90 percent would be a broken motor which you could replace. just look for the motor at the bottom of the microwave and race the wire back to the pc board.
