Question about Microwave Ovens
In some case, the legs of the support get too hot and when the weight is removed they bend downward in relation to the hub.
I have solved this problem in the past by carefully heating the area where the legs meet the hub, using a gas stove flame or a torch.
Then I place it on a flat surface, weighted down so as to hold the legs so they will cool in the correct position.
If you have to do it more than once, the support should be replaced.

Replacing the turntable motor.
The motor assembly is fixed to the base
of the oven usually with two screws and access i obtained by removing
the inspection plate directly beneath the motor. It is usally a plug
in synchronus motor that revolves at a few revs per minute but the
plastic cogs in the motors gear box fail and the motor assembly must
be replaced. They are fairly inexpensive and obtainable usually from
a domestic appliance repair shop.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity and turn it upside down if it is a tabletop model, a little more complicated if it is built in!
Remove the inspection plate and disconnect the motor. Remove the motor and go and get a new one. Re fit it and put the microwave back in its position. Plug it back in, with the turntable and plate. Put a cup of water on the plate inside of the oven and heat for 20 seconds to check the plate goes round.
Hope this helps.
