Question about Microwave Ovens

2 Answers

Our new GE microwave, JES1451, has the food plate which rotates at an uneven speed, almost stalling at certain angular positions. The microwave makes a fairly loud periodic [~2/sec] clicking noise when the microwave is heating. Should I exchange if for another one at Lowes? Thank you.

  • Remove the two (2) screws in the mounting plate. Drain elbow will come out of the hole when screws are removed.
  • Rotate mounting plate 90 degrees, insert elbow in disposer drain hole.
  • Begin threading both screws before either is fully tightened.

Siemens HF26066GB plate is moving when door closed and not moving when open


Have a shop look at this---there usually is a recessed safety switch inside the jam that will prevent the unit from working with door open--sounds like the problem may be with it.

Food cooks uneven with the fan running and has to be rotated to ensure even cooking


Remove the mains plug , remove the glass plate and roller from the cabin , open the top covers and the rear covers to check for the drive and belt to the rotating table stem. If this is worn change, if not check the motor and the drive to the motor. Check on the main processor board for any loose connections or dry soldering.

Microwave stopped heating. Everything else still works - it comes on, the light comes on and the plate rotates and it dings when it done, but te food is still froozen.


Sounds like either the magnetron or its high voltage power source has failed.
It is extremely dangerous to work on the magnetron side of the power system. It CAN and DOES KILL!

I hv a 24ltr Sharp Carasoul Microwave. Few days back, its plate stopped working, but its heating the food fine. Why has the plate stopped rotating? Will the food be evenly heated even though the plate...


> Why has the plate stopped rotating?

The turntable system typically 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.

You order Sharp parts Encompass here or call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

> Will the food be evenly heated even though the plate is not rotating?

No.

I have a GE spacemaker JVM1542 that is not heating the food, the noise level is louder, light works, plate rotates.


sounds like its not producing any high voltage for the mag tube, check your h.v diode, then your h.v. capacitor for being open

Can I temporarily run the microwave without the plate rotating?


Probably not. The plate turns to make sure the food gets cooked evenly. You can take the plate out if you need a stationary object in the oven.
