The only fix is to buy a replacement glass turntable. With really cheap microwave ovens it's usually cheaper to buy a new oven.

As you haven't stated a make and model, nor stated which country you are in, I cannot suggest a supplier. For major brands, spare parts tend to start becoming scarce about six to seven years after production of the model has been discontinued. For the lesser brands that nobody has ever heard of, spare parts generally aren't available at all.

My microwave keeps coming off track


The glass turntable can be vague about seating correctly on the drive spindle. You can position it approximately and rotate it slightly until it seats.

Where can I get a glass turntable


Are you talking about just a new glass plate for your specific oven or a generic turntable mechanism? If just a glass plate, you have provided no brand or model info. Just examine how your old plate engaged - they aren't all the same but some will interchange. There are also inexpensive turntable devices that can be used to retrofit ovens without a rotating mechanism.

What is the dimension of the rotating plate I broke mine


Here is a link to the replacement glass cook tray for your Panasonic NN-S961 microwave:

http://microwaveglasstrays.com/shop/panasonic-microwave-glass-turntable-plate-tray-f06014m00ap-p-156.html


And here is another link to that part from Sears Parts Direct:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Panasonic-Parts/Microwave-Parts/F06014M00AP/0022/568/Model-NNS961/0789/0123245?keySuffixId=NA&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=50019470&diagramPageId=00001&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=NNS961&subCompDesc=Cabinet%20parts&brandDesc=PANASONIC&modelDesc=MICROWAVE&blt=11


Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.

As you can see from the website, the tray has the following dimensions:

Glass tray measures approximately 16 1/2 inches in overall diameter.

Outside diameter of turntable track is 10 7/8 inches.


I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

I bought a house with this Microwave - no instructions etc.Should there be a glass tray for it - I know it's an older model


If there is a recess for a tray and a drive in the middle of the floor of the oven, then it should have a rotating tray. My microwave is about 30 years old and has a rotating tray.

Microwave glass tray is broken. It is discontinued.


Yes you will not hurt anthing by not putting on the bottom. One substitution that works extremely well is to find you a plate like they use in regular ovens or anything that is microwavable of that sort. Sears has an excellent selection of microwavable cookware and there is nothing in the rule book that say you canno find you a piece to match the bottom of your microwave. It works either way. Good luck and God bless.

BROKEN GLASS COVER UNDER NIGHT LIGHT


SAME PROBLEM FOR ME...I REMOVED THE BOTTOM COVER AND FOUND THAT ONE LIGHT WAS NOT FIXED AND WAS LOOSE AND WAS TOUCHING THE GLASS. THIS HEAT WAS WHAT BROKE THE GLASS COVER. CLOSED INSPECTION SHOWED THE LIGHT SOCKET WAS TOO LARGE FOR THE CLIPS AND WERE NOT SECURED WHEN PURCHASED. I GOT SMALL SCREW AND NUT, BENT CLIPS SO THE SOCKET HOLE MATCHED THE HOLE MADE BY THE CLIP AND SECURELY ATTACHED THE SOCKET. THIS WILL SECURE THE LIGHT AND KEEP IT FROM TOUCHING THE GLASS..........IF I CAN EVER FIND A GLASS REPLACEMENT....MAY JUST HAVE ONE CUT. NOW THE PROBLEM IS TO REPLACE THE LIGHT AND MICROWAVE FUSE WHICH WAS BLOWN WHEN THE GLASS BROKE.

Broken Glass tray


That model number isn't showing up. Could you confirm that?

Then I'll see if anything is still available for it.

Otherwise, here are two suggestions:

You place a microwave-safe saucer upside-down on the roller assembly (if equipped) and then put a microwave-safe plate right-side up on top of the saucer. You can also use another glass turntable tray that doesn't fit instead of the plate.

Be sure both are centered, checking them frequently to be sure shifting does not occur. Otherwise, a spill of hot material could result.

Another option is to check eBay or Wal-Mart and other stores to see if they have a Rubbermaid or Nordic Ware (NordicWare) wind-up turntable like this "Micro-Go-Round".
