The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

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.

In some brands, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

It may be that the wheels on the support may be a bit dry. You can use a tiny amount of cooking spray or cooking oil to try to lube it.

Petroleum-based lubricants are not advised in food preparation areas such as the inside of the oven.

You'll want to be sure the support and the floor of the oven are very clean before applying the spray.

If that fixes it, great, but if it fails again in a short time, then the support needs to be replaced.

Microwave Inverter NN-ST651BB 1200W Works fine but the turn table still turn when I open the door.


Does the turn table ever stop? If not you need to either replace the oven or have it repaired, it is likely cheaper to just replace it.

Turntable doesn't rotate


Your turntable motor need replacement. tip upside down with dish removed and gain access to turntable motor from underneath.(remove power plug before you start working on the m/wave.) 2 screws hold the small t/table motor in place.Unscrew both and pull motor upwards. Quote the info on the motor for a replacement. I find cooking isnt effected in any wayexcept if you want to bake things like cakes. It then requires the t/table motor.

Panasonic NN-H264SF Microwave oven starts with a chirp


No I dont think so, check that the wheels on the rotating ring are not seized up and dragging. These will make a chirp type sound as it starts to rotate or even when it finally comes to rest.

Have had Panasonic microwave NN-S753 several years. Worked fine, recently tray started rotating when door is opened to insert food. Despite this problem, unit continues to cook fine after time is set and...


Thanks for that ID number. That's a big help.

Now, looking at the schematic, it's clear that you would have a shorted primary latch switch (top door switch) or that switch's mount is damaged.

For safety, disassembly and diagnosis of door switch trouble, see my generic files:

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

Panasonic Microwave Turn table rotates when door is open


Found this Panasonic post in the Samsung section!

If it moves just a tiny bit when the door opens and then stops, that's normal.

If it keeps running when the door is open, that's usually due to a bad door switch or broken / loose door switch mount.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Turntable continues to rotate.


I would say you have a failing door switch or the mount which holds your door switch is loose or broken. In most designs, it is the upper door switch that will produce these very symptoms when it is intermittent or its mount is broken or loose. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. Slamming the door, damage during shipping or transportation and sloppy manufacturing techniques or materials are the primary causes of trouble with the door switch mounts. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance. You can find these files via a Yahoo search. In some cases, the problem is a bad connection or a bad relay on the control board. That's something we see from time to time, and we repair those nationwide, but it's usually a door switch. If you still have a problem, please post again. Be safe!
