The plate of my microwave own doesn't turn

The plate of my microwave owen doesn't turn properly. It starts spinning and then it suddenly stops, but only for a second or two and then it starts spinning again. Is it possible that it is supposed to work like that because it spills liquid from cups or glasses.

Microwave plate turner keeps spinning even with door closed and microwave turned off


My microwave is doing this as well; It's a frigidaire model #FGMV154CLFA.

After using the microwave part (it is also convection), the light stays on in the microwave and the turner keeps turning.

And I've only used the convection part of my microwave a couple times and I'm not sure if I was successful. While trying to cook something in convection mode, I pressed convection, then pressed the temp i wanted, then convection, then keyed in the time I wanted the item to cook. The microwave started and the timer started counting down but the countdown stopped with 8 minutes left? I left it alone to see what would happen and it never finished so I restarted the process again.

PS..I've never gotten an error code

I have a GE Spacesaver PVM1870 microwave - the turntable has suddenly stopped turning. I've tried the "Turntable On/Off" button, but it did not help. What else can I try?


Perhaps the turntable motor has failed. Replace it as soon as possible as if you don't the food will not cook properly.

Replacing the turntable motor.

The motor assembly is fixed to the base of the oven usually with two screws and access i obtained by removing the inspection plate directly beneath the motor. It is usally a plug in synchronus motor that revolves at a few revs per minute but the plastic cogs in the motors gear box fail and the motor assembly must be replaced. They are fairly inexpensive and obtainable usually from a domestic appliance repair shop.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity and turn it upside down if it is a tabletop model, a little more complicated if it is built in!
Remove the inspection plate and disconnect the motor. Remove the motor and go and get a new one. Re fit it and put the microwave back in its position. Plug it back in, with the turntable and plate. Put a cup of water on the plate inside of the oven and heat for 20 seconds to check the plate goes round.
Hope this helps.

Turntable has stopped revolving... will start to spin as soon as START button hit - goes about half an inch and then completely stops.


One suggestion i would make is that in the microwave there is the turntable, lift the plate off ,then below it you will see a circular object with wheels on.I think you may have this the wrong way up, so turn it over put the plate back on top and should work.

its the circular piece on runners that is the problem

Microwave turns on goes threw the motions but wont heat up..


If it is running, including plate rotating, and there is no heat, then you need to replace either a part called magnetron, or one called high voltage capacitor (HV cap.).

The magnetron is located behind a protective plate on the internal side of the owen. The high voltage capacito is in microwave circuits behind the main wall.

Both parts are not expensive.

Here you see a general diagram, and you can also buy the parts. Browse with the mouse on top of the picture to see the magnetron.

Here you can also get parts and diagrams.

GE Spacemaker - microwave works but the inside plate doesn't spin


you have a bad turntable motor or a bad control board.. start with the motor 9 time out of 10 this is your problem.. you can pick up this part at your local parts house or order online.. look for universal part. this will be alot cheaper then the oem.. just take the screws out of bottom panel under microwave. panel will drop down. you will see little round motor about 2in' make sure unit is unplugged.
