Glass plate won't turn


It could be the drive block is cracked; remove and look for a split in the shaft.

Can I put the lid of my slow cooker in the oven? I'm cooking conventionally using just the crock. Val


I wouldn't recommend it as the lid has a plastic handle which will melt. The covers
themselves are made of pyrex glass generally and would stand the heat, It is just
a concern as to what material is attached to them as far as knobs and trim ring.
Hope this helps.

The piece holding the glass turntable does not turn appears to be burned on the insert peg and smells of burnt machine oil


Hi
Sounds like its either the shaft is gummed up with spillovers or the motor has seized because of either spillovers or lack of lubrication ( they usually go for years tho)

If mechanically minded you will need to remove the glass cooking plate, REMOVE THE POWER CORD, turn the whole thing upside down to see if you can access the motor by removing a metal plate etc - if so see if the shaft can be turned by gripping carefully (so not to damage) with pliers or similar. If it moves apply a drop of oil to the area where the shaft enters the motor - chances are the bearing area there is dry of lubrication. Clean off any food debris also and leave wiring alone.
If it now moves freely, reassemble, replace bottom cover plate and turn right side up, plug in and try.
Otherwise if not mechanically minded or still no go you will need to have it serviced

The plate is not turning


If the oven is STILL heating, but the carousel isn't turning, this problem is commonly attributed to a turntable motor that has worn out and may need to be replaced. The motor is attached to the center plastic piece (called a turntable shaft or coupler) under the middle of the glass tray. The following link explains how to access and replace one:

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

This is a very simple repair, that usually is not expensive. The price range will be determined by the model and manufacturer. This repair can also be performed on an over the range model microwave oven WITHOUT uninstalling it.

You can refer to any of the following websites for comparison:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites listed have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with locating and properly identifying the part(s) you need.

If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement motor is WB26X10038. You may also check the turntable shaft to make sure it is not stripped and slipping on the motor shaft. The part number for the turntable shaft is WB06X10138.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Plastic peice that fits under plate inside micowave that makes it rotate


If the model number you have this question listed under is correct, there are two possible parts based on your question. There is the carousel ring, that turns the glass tray, and there is the small plastic coupler that the center of the glass tray is supported by. The part numbers are as follows:

Carousel ring - WB06X10513
Coupler - WB06X10564

You can view and excellent exploded view diagram of this microwave at pcappliancerepair.com. The parts I mention are listed under Diagram 1151005 as items 84 and 101 respectively.

To replace the coupler, you simply remove the glass tray and gently pry straight up. The coupler will pull off of the turn table motor shaft. Insert the new coupler and press on to the shaft.

If this is not the correct model number, please post back with your correct information so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope this helps you.

The spinning plate in my Microwave broke.


Hi there! Universal Glass plates are available from a good local appliance spares shop. Please note that size of the plate, the coupler (The centre connection point to the plate) and the ring size (on which the plate rests) are all important to the correct function of the plate. Take these along for correct matching if you can or they may even keep your particular Model and Brand. Best Wishes and Good Luck, JUS004

My above the range Maytag Microwave oven plate does not rotate. Bought a new rotator wheel as the old one was broken, and the central spindle will rotate, but not with the plate on it. What can I do?


The spindle (called a turntable shaft) sits atop a small motor shaft from the turntable motor. You either have a weak turntable motor, stripped shaft (which allows the motor shaft to free spin when it has any weight on it), or both.

The turntable motor is located under the bottom panel of the microwave oven. You do not have to uninstall the oven for this repair.

First, unplug the unit, remove the glass carousel tray, and pull straight up on the turntable shaft to remove it. Next, locate and remove the series of screws along the bottom panel underneath the oven. The bottom panel will open exposing the drive motor. The motor comes out by disconnecting the connector plug and a couple of mounting screws.

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, you can view these parts at searspartsdirect.com. Locate items 11 (turntable motor) and 14 (shaft) under the "Cavity" heading. Other sites you may try are pcappliancerepair.com, appliancepartspros.com or repairclinic.com to see if you can find these parts any cheaper.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Lost Turntable Knob


That would be the turntable coupler.
