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. Repairclinic.com 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.

I have an Oster 1.2 cu. ft counter top microwave model OM1201E0VG. I purchased this model about a month ago. Every time we run it there is a grinding noise as the turn table rotates. I have checked...


There is still factory warranty on this and most stores wold even take it back if there is a problem. Please don't try and repair something that can be fixed under warranty or they will void the warranty. My advice is to put it all back to gether and then take it to the store you purchased it from and demand an exchange. They most likely will return it no questions asked if it is that new.

How do I replace the coupler that turns the table


If yo are referring to the turn table MOTOR, the following link explains how to access and replace:


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 motor usually averages about $35 - $40, but the price also depends upon the model. Since you did not include your MODEL NUMBER, I do not know how much yours would be. This repair can also be performed on an over the range model microwave oven WITHOUT uninstalling it.

You can purchase replacement parts at the any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites listed offer helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you in parts location/identification. If you have any questions, please post back with your model number and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If you are referring to the turn table coupler, this is the small plastic shaft that connects to the turn table motor. This is the visible piece inside the oven where the glass tray sits. The coupler will simply pull straight up and come off the motor shaft. It can also be replaced if required. However, if the coupler were bad, the motor would still run. This would cause the glass tray to slip while turning.

Turntable wheel under glass tray broken


If the microwave comes with a roller ring to rotate the glass turntable then I would recommend that it needs to be used when the microwave is operating, as the turntable rotates the food so it can be heated evenly.

I would recommend checking with your local Panasonic repairer he may have access to a new roller or even a second hand one to tide you over.

Kenmore microwave 721.80803401 rotating table pops up and stops turning.


I would bet the arm ("ring assembly") is either worn or warped from heat? and is not meshing well with the motor shaft or glass tray.

That is part number 4351W1A003A and you can get it for only $6.30 (compared to over sixteen via Sears) from Tritronics.

The motor is part # 6549W1S018C and if it's the culprit, you can get that for $24.84 from Tritronics, compared to almost thirty-two from Sears.

You should look again and see how loose the arm is on the shaft and which might be worn or warped or out of perpendicular. I think that one of these is the problem.

Kenmore elite microwave/vent hood model 721.80834500 turntable


I bought a Kenmore Elite Microwave Hood Combination Model 721.80823500 at Sears. The installer did not bring the parts to connect the vent to the pipe on the ceiling and never came back. I cannot find the vent/exhaust connetor part to have it installed. No one knows. I appreciate information or installer. Thanks.

Rotating ring/ Glide tray comes off the track -Elite Model 80803


Take your round glass tray and plastic three wheeled hoop to a local Sears store, open up the microwaves on display, find the one that is still using something similar, deftly trade out yours for theirs. The new wheeled plastic hoop wheels are slightly bigger and the glass tray raised guides are a bit longer, since the switch no problems like I had. Don't get caught. They do not have those parts for sale at the local Sears store.
