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
Glass inside does not rotate now - b162a2f.jpg 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

What size glass tray do I need for my Westinghouse model WCM770B/W microwave? I broke mine and cannot find the answer in the manual.

Frequent thrift stores or yard sales, or take a tape measure to the inside of the microwave
. If your dish was square, the glass plate should likely be about 1 inch less wide and 1 inch less deep that the inside of the box.
If you have a round plastic rotator, the dish should be about 1 -2 inches bigger in diameter than the plastic rotator.
God bless your efforts.

I'm experiencing occasional arching from the center of the oven i.e. out of the spindle that rotates the metal rack and glass turntable. I cleaned thoroughly and it seems to have minimized the proble

Its unlikely to be associated with the tuntable motor. Units are tuned to prevent arching. Therefore it appears something may have changed inside the unit. Be sure there are no loose items or bits of foil or other mateallic items inside. Also check metal turntable.

Sounds like either the turntable motor has seized or that the shaft of the turntable motor has broken off inside the roller ring. You may need to chek with your local De'Longhi repairer.

Jenn-Air JMC8100- Microwave

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.

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

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

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. 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.
