Question about Microwave Ovens
You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/blog.htm
If yours 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, as you're looking up from the stove top.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
