This could be a failing turntable motor, but more likely your turntable support has gotten bent. That's an easier and cheaper problem to solve.

Excessive heat can sometimes make the legs of the support bend so that the center is raised up far enough that it won't always make good contact with the motor.

You can test this by running the microwave empty for a few seconds. It may hesitate to turn or stutter.

Next try it with a bowl with several cups of water in it. The extra weight may push it down so it makes good contact and runs without a hitch.

The way I fix these is to use a stove burner or a torch to heat up the legs and bend them up a bit.

Then I quickly set up or clamp the support so it's held in the proper position for a few minutes until it cools.

One way to hold the heated support in position is to place an object under the end of each leg and put something slightly heavy on top of it in the middle.

Possible that the Magnetron is powered off or is defective. You can check the main capacitor to the HT, check the leads, check the main board.
Also check the sensor which is mounted on the top or side of the cabin which is protector for overheat and can cut the voltage for safety.
If so also check the wave guides

Almost certain if microwave still heats a bad motor or gear issue inside the unit--if unit will not heat the safety switch in the side that the door engages is the cause of the wheel or platter not turning--prevents unit from use if door open.

Frigidaire microwave doesn't work


Don't have a fix for your problem, but my Frigidaire microhood just did the exact same thing--about the same age, started cooking some food and it worked for a few minutes and then just stopped--time kept going, light stayed on, but turn table stopped and fan noise cut out. I tried it a few more times and it seemed to fade in and out and then stopped trying.

Samsung microwave -the electrical panel runs, the


it sounds like it one of your micro-switches inside that control the power to the doors, if one of the switches is bad, it would cut the power , the panenl will light, the turn table will work, the fan will turn on , but you will not get any heat at all, micro-switches run depending onthe unit from 5-10 bucks, when you open the unit you will see the one that is bad, is usually bent or the connector might be burn or melt, good luck..!

You need to trace the power feeding the high voltage transfomer. Because the table doesn't turn, it implies that a door switch or safety interlock is the problem.
