We have a 3 year old Cooke and Lewis integrated microwave/grill that has recently stopped working. It starts up but after 5/6 seconds it stops and 'err 5'comes up on the display. Any ideas?


if this was purchased from the likes of B&Q, at the time of purchase, the retailer must ensure that the goods are/were fit for purpose for a period of 6 years from date of purchase. This is regardless of manufactures warranty. Take it back, demand a new one, quoting the above

Turn table will not turn


I'd check to see if the turntable motor has continuity. If it does, check to see if 120 volts is being supplied to it. If both are o.k., then the motor has probably bound-up in some way internally. There's also the possibility that it has mechanically become detached from the hub that turns the glass tray.

My frigidare microwave model #FFMV162LB (about 5 years old) stopped working. I was cooking last night, and in the middle of it, the table stopped turning and the heat stopped. The timer still works and the...


After 5 years of service, there could have been a magnetron failure but the door interlock (latch) could have failed which would acccount for the turntable failure.

Sharp carousel model number R-930ak + parts The plate inside does not spin sounds like a cheap plastic gear on the bottom is worn out and stripped. MAkes a clicking sound


This problem is commonly caused by a turntable motor that has worn out and needs replaced. The following link explains how to access and replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3555716-replacing_a_turntable_motor_on_a_microwa

For the model number you have listed, the part number is 46-841666-3.

You can purchase replacement parts at searspartsdirect.com.

The site also offers helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you in parts location/identification. The motor is listed at item 001-20 under the "Cabinet" heading. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: You also consider the turn table coupling, which is item 004-22. The underside of the coupling has a keyed slot that fits on to the turn table motor shaft. If the coupling becomes cracked, or if the keyed slot "rounds out", it may be slipping on the motor shaft and not turning.

Microwave rotating assembly jumps 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.

Panasonic NN-CS596S Convection Combi Steam Oven


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

If it stops at 16 seconds and is a sensor model, it probably has a defective humidity sensor.

If it stops after 22 seconds, that means the controller has detected a problem, usually a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

If you do indeed have a problem, Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer.

Turn table stopped spinning


If everything on the microwave works, except the turntable, this could be a simple turntable drive motor failure. It does happen from time to time. This motor gets a workout as it runs each and every time you use the oven. I just want to reassure you that these DO wear out and should not be an indication of the quality of the oven. I've had to replace them before. The motor costs about $34 at searspartsdirect.com. That is...if your model number is correct. You will need to go to the web site and type in your COMPLETE model number. There are several Kitchen-Aid models listed with the number you provided. I managed to scroll through several of the part listings and they all seem to be consistent with identfying the motor you need as item #11 under the "Oven Cavity" heading. The part number is W10159107. This is a fairly simple repair job. You shouldn't have to uninstall the oven if it is cabinet mounted. All have to do is unplug the power source and remove the panel covering the underside of the microwave. The plastic spindle just pulls off the motor shaft. Let me know if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.
