It is a function of gearing or motor orientation, and it makes no difference which way it rotates, as long as all of the attachments need the same rotation....

This is an over the stove microwave. Need help replacing the light bulbs on the bottom of the microwave.


Disconnect the power and get a flat bladed screw driver to remove some of the bulb base away from the socket. Insert long nose pliers into the area created and turn base counterclockwise to remove.

Is the blades supposed to come off when I take the container off of the blender.. My blender is brand new sat for 3 or 4 years after I bought it. . The first time I used it , it was extremely hard to get...


You did not specify a brand or model number of your blender; however, most blender jars will lift off their power base without turning or with only very little turning motion to release them from the base. The blade assembly should NOT come off as you remove the blender jar from the power base.

Were you successful in removing the bottom ring which normally screws on to the bottom of the blender jar from the powerbase?

You should make sure you have properly attached the blade assembly for your brand/model.

The blender blade assembly should be held on to the bottom of the blender jar by the bottom ring which screws on clockwise; most will have a sealing gasket that fits between the blade assembly and the sealing surface of the blender jar to prevent any leakage while in use. It will take much more turning to unscrew the bottom ring to release the blade assembly than it should to release the bottom ring from the powerbase.

Assemble your blender jar and blade assembly and try a dry run by placing on the powerbase, giving a couple of bursts of power, and then seeing if you are able to remove without the blender ring unscrewing.

Make sure you are comfortable with the action required to remove the blender jar from the powerbase before you put in to use.

Good luck!

How do you change the light bulb in a JVM 1440?


1 Unplug the microwave oven from the outlet. Wait 20 minutes for the capacitor that is inside the microwave to discharge.
2 Unscrew all the screws around the casing by turning them counterclockwise.
3 Remove the cover by lifting off.
4 Locate the light bulb in the microwave. This will be located on either the right or left side.
5 Unscrew the light bulb by unscrewing counterclockwise. Some light bulbs are held into the socket by two notches; for these you will need to gently push on the bulb and turn counterclockwise to unsecure the bulb, then pull out of the socket.
6 Place your new bulb in the empty socket and secure by turning clockwise until tight, or if the bulb is one with notches on both sides, then guide the notches into the slot on the socket, push gently and turn clockwise until clicked into position.
7 Replace the cover and screw back on. You are now done and may plug back in the microwave.

I have a JES1142 which I purchased only one month ago. The turning plate rotates both clockwise and counter clockwise. When it rotates counterclockwise it makes a grinding sound. Why does it rotate bot...


It's normal for the motor to turn both ways, that's because of how the motor is made. As for the grinding noise, there's no reason the motor itself would make more noise turning one direction than in the other. The noise might be coming from the roller ring under the glass turntable. One of its wheels might be binding when it tries to turn counterclockwise.

Here's a test. Take the glass tray and roller ring out of the oven. Put a microwave-safe container with a cup or so of water in the oven and start it. Stop the oven and start it again, and the motor should turn the other way. If not, repeat this until you've seen the plastic coupling turn both directions. Note whether you still hear the noise as the motor turns each way. If you do, then there is something wrong with the motor and it should be replaced. If not, the noise is coming from the roller.

In either case, if the oven is truly only a month old it's still under warranty. Since you are concerned about the noise and are worried that the oven is defective, contact the store where you purchased it and see if they will exchange it or take it in for service. If the store can't help you, refer to the owner's manual for the service procedure to follow.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!
