Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
The problem is typically the turntable motor, it is accessible by first disconnecting the power then removing the lower panel that houses the filters and lights. You will see a small device with 2 wires that looks similar to this
The next most common thing to fail would be the coupling that attaches to this motor and sits inside the oven, you can take the glass tray out and lift the coupling, check for cracks or breaks, try running the microwave for a few seconds without the table and see if the coupling turns with the weight of the table on it. This may indicate a stripped coupling.
The 3rd component and most expensive to fail is the control itself, there is either a relay or diode on the control that sends a signal to the motor to turn. You should verify that you have power to the motor before replacing it.
I hope this helps
