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 or coupler) under the middle of the glass tray. The following link explains how to access and replace one:

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 range 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 need.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Turntable wheel under glass tray broken


If the microwave comes with a roller ring to rotate the glass turntable then I would recommend that it needs to be used when the microwave is operating, as the turntable rotates the food so it can be heated evenly.

I would recommend checking with your local Panasonic repairer he may have access to a new roller or even a second hand one to tide you over.

Is the spindle that the glass tray rides on rotating? If not, you may have a defective turntable motor. You will need to remove the bottom panel of the oven to access it. Repairclinic.com carries the part, but you will have to provide a more complete model number in order to narrow down the correct part. There are several model ovens listed with the model number you provided. You may also check with searspartsdirect to see if they carry the motor. The two websites have competitive pricing and sometimes the parts are cheaper at one website or the other. Post back if you need further guidance. If I'm wrong with my assumption, I will try to give you beter advice. I hope this may help you.

Rotating ring/ Glide tray comes off the track -Elite Model 80803


Take your round glass tray and plastic three wheeled hoop to a local Sears store, open up the microwaves on display, find the one that is still using something similar, deftly trade out yours for theirs. The new wheeled plastic hoop wheels are slightly bigger and the glass tray raised guides are a bit longer, since the switch no problems like I had. Don't get caught. They do not have those parts for sale at the local Sears store.
