Some over the range models allow you to turn off the turntable via the keypad. Counter top models usually don't.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPSWi_z7M58

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. You may have to cut the cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

Why is turntable skipping after motor replacement?


It doesnt matter which way it is plugged in. If the microwave has a guide roller (ring with 3 wheels), check the wheels to see it they are all intact and roll smoothly.

Phillips microwave oven vt255/bl tuntable does not rotate


HELLO.

The turntable is the unit in the center of a microwave that you set your food on. It rotates during the microwave cycle, making sure all parts of a dish are properly heated. These are typically made of either hard glass or microwave-safe plastic.

Your microwave turntable may not turn due to one of these problems explain below



(1)If your turntable is removable (as many are for cleaning purposes), it may have come loose from this turning mechanism.place the turntable properl on the turning mechanism.



(2)If your turntable was previously working and now does not any longer, check the settings on your microwave's LCD display to make sure you haven't accidentally turned off the turntable.


Most microwaves have different settings that the user can select with the press of a button, like a "Defrost" setting or a "Popcorn" setting. Certain microwaves may stop the turntable from turning during certain pre-programmed selection modes. Stop your microwave and don't use a pre-programmed mode. Instead, just specify the time using the number pads and start your microwave to see if your turntable begins to rotate again.



(3)The rotating mechanism on the inside of your microwave that rotates the turntable is actually connected to a small motor on the inside of your microwave's case. If this motor burns out or stops working, the mechanism will stop turning. This is something that needs to be replace.

FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO REPLACE THE FAULTY MOTOR.

THINGS NEEDED.

* screwdrivers

* replacement motor

* specific microwave information and part number


1 Open the microwave door, and carefully remove the turntable tray. Also, remove the frame that the turntable is positioned on. Both the turntable and the frame are not secured in the oven, so removing them is a quick process.

2 Remove the bottom panel of the microwave. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the number of screws securing the panel varies depending on the manufacturer and specific microwave. Once the bottom panel is loosened, disconnect its wiring harness in order to completely remove the panel.

3 Locate the turntable motor. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the motor compartment should be positioned below the center of the microwave. Unscrew the motor, disconnect the wires, and remove it from the microwave.

4 Determine the specific part number for the turntable motor so that a correct replacement can be purchased or ordered. Position the new motor into the shaft in the bottom of the microwave. Screw the motor securely into place.

5 Test the microwave to make sure that the turntable motor is operating correctly. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the motor can make noises if it was not positioned evenly in the shaft. Reconnect all of the wires that were detached when removing the old motor.

6 Reinsthall the microwave's bottom panel parts, and secure all of the screws in place. Reposition the turntable frame in the bottom of the microwave and place the turntable on top of it. Test the microwave in order to make sure that everything is working correctly.

Thanks.

LG Countertop Microwave why stopped rotating?


Microwave turntables are belt driven from a small motor.

Usually it is the belt that needs replacement.

Unplug, and remove the outer case to inspect the belt. If it is still tight and attatched, the chances are it needs a new motor - often it's cheaper to buy a new unit.

Non rotating lg turntable fixit try failure


Looks this model's turntable support has a coupler shaft built-in which is supposed to go down into the turntable motor hole and make contact with the turntable shaft. Is that right in your case?

So I would wonder if the turntable support has gotten bent due to heat. That's common on some models.

When you take it out and look at it from the side, are the legs straight and perpendicular to the shaft or are they bent down?

On some models, you can heat them over a stove flame, then put them on a flat surface with a weight to old them in position while they cool.

Otherwise, you'll need a new turntable support. LG / Goldstar calls this a "rotating ring".
