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 the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement motor is WB26X10038. You may also check the turntable shaft to make sure it is not stripped and slipping on the motor shaft. The part number for the turntable shaft is WB06X10138.

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

Hi I have a siemens inno-wave HF17055GB Microwave and the plate turner is not turning, otherwise it seems to be working? help please


Replace the motor. The teeth in its gearbox have probably been damaged when trying to turn the plate by hand.

AEG MCD2664E-m - plate not turning


There is no separate fuse only for turntable motor. Usually there is two fuse, one in High Voltage section (instead fuse could be HV protect diode) and another one for 220 V (light, turntable motor, fun motor, display....). If light work normally then is turtable motor faulty.

Microwave will not heat any thing.


the plate has nothing to do with the microwave heating up the food
but the magnetron that heat the food is bad and will need replacing
I would ask a electronic shop how much they would charge to replace it , and if is not worth it to you then a new one would be a good call

Microwave plate doesn't fit on cog?!


I know this is probably DUMB of me to say, But some with this type of turntable arrangement, The ring would only set one way. The ring did not turn, but rather the wheels faced up and rolled with, and supported the turntable.
