    Bought microwave about six weeks ago and has been perfect until recently when turntable began to wobble on central cog, on closer inspection the actual cog appears to be smaller and now moves about loosely

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.

My HB77LGB works fine but when using oven for 15 minutes the turntable jumps off the central pink cog


Seating the glass turntable can be tricky. After installing the turtable, rotate it slightly to confirm it is seated completely.

GE microwave oven squeals as carousel is rotating. Noise stops in a minute or so but begins anew when the unit is used again.


If it is the wheel on the turntable that squeels, wash the turntable in strong solution of washing up liquid and water.
If it does it without a turntable fitted, change the turntable motor.

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.

Cookworks microwave oven with grill and convection model cmx60 - I need new glass turntable unable to sourced bought from Argus about three years ago please help.


Microwave turntables are in several sizes

Here are a couple of sources for them. What you have to take note of is the wheel tray also. You may get the right size turntable and not fit the wheel tray. Manufacturer is not as important as the size and tray fitting.

This one seems a bit small at 10 inches but as your microwave is only 800 Watts it may just be the correct one :

Glass turntable in tricity tmc209 says "microwave only" What do I use for convection or combi cooking? Does turntable still need to rotate for convection cooking?


definately dont use the standard glass plate for convectional 'oven' cooking, as it will shatter. i have had TWO plates shatter so far before realising they should only be used for microwave cooking.

Turntable wheel under glass tray broken


If the microwave comes with a roller ring to rotate the glass turntable then I would recommend that it needs to be used when the microwave is operating, as the turntable rotates the food so it can be heated evenly.

I would recommend checking with your local Panasonic repairer he may have access to a new roller or even a second hand one to tide you over.

Lost glass turntable support wheel


I have the wheel you're looking for. We are tossing a broken Emerson MW8168B but I'll hold the turntable support for you if you want it. Let me know.

Microwave plate doesn't fit on cog?!


I know this is probably DUMB of me to say, But some with this type of turntable arrangement, The ring would only set one way. The ring did not turn, but rather the wheels faced up and rolled with, and supported the turntable.
