You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand:

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 can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts for GE models by entering your full model number here:

Why is my turntable not turning in my microwave oven?

Is your microwave clean under the table? No stuck on food or anything? Does the the oven work without the table?
Does the little prop in the centre that turns the table move when there is no table on it? Try to carefully clean it and see if that helps.
