Question about Sharp Microwave Ovens
Our microwave is making a loud, rapid noise (grinding/knocking) when operating (except in convection mode).
The noise appears to come from the under turntable area. The turntable stops turning.
Can anyone please give us some ideas?

If the unit is brand new as you say then it is covered under
the warranty and the 800# for Bosch is in your paperwork that came with
It sounds like the glass platen (turntable) hub is either binding or else the drive mechanism itself either has a bad tooth on the main gear or tooth wheel. Some may still use a chain type drive mechanism as well.
If you call that 800 number - the customer service dept there will advise you as to what needs to happen next. It's possible they will either replace or repair at their expense.
Who installed the unit?
Let me know?

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.
If yours is a GE, you can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
If yours is a GE, 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 and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

When you close the oven door the latches operate a couple of interlock switches that control power. It may be that one of the door switches is bad or out of adjustment. It's also possible that one of the door latches is broken so it's not hitting the switch. There should be two door latches. Are they both there? This oven could be fixed by adjusting or replacing the interlock parts as needed. Because of concerns about microwave leakage from an improper door seal, you should have this oven serviced by a professional.
