Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
Everything else on microwave works great. All of a sudden the turntable started sounding like it's grinding when turning. We have no idea why. We just stopped using turntable. Any suggestions...I miss the turntable.
Sounds like the bottom bearing has siezed. This is then rotating on it's mountings instead of nice ball bearings.
Just check it's not simply any support wheels you can easily get to.
It is possible to access this from inside. If you wish to repair it, unplug, and remove case screws. The drive assembly is easily visable from underneath. If you can get the main bearing off, clean it in parafin or WD40 and use a little light oil on it.
Make sure you replace the case properly - with all screws before attempting to start again.
The microwave generator is only active when electricity is applied, and usually the door assembly is integral to the microwave chamber.
