SOURCE: Turntable will not turn on Microwave

It's usually probably a failed turntable motor, but you should double-check the coupler, too.

We actually have the complete service & repair manual for this model at our site: http://www.microwavedisplay.cm/r930ak_aw_sm.pdf

You can order a new motor via Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com

SOURCE: GE turntable microwave Je1540WW 002 Turntable doesn't turn

I have had the turn table motor go defective in microwave ovens.

Normaly, before ordering a new motor, I always checked to make sure that there was power going to the motor assembly. I never had a power drive failure to a motor so-far. When they did not spin, the motor was defective. But, one day there will be a first time for me.

The fix was to purchase a new motor from the manufacture and install it. In some cases, I had to also replace the spindle key because the original broke when trying to remove it when removing the motor assembly.

I suggest that for servicing a microwave oven, you give it out to a service center to have the work done. There are safety issues when working on microwave ovens.

I have the exact microwave you do (ems8000w), the motor failed and I found this one worked perfectly as a replacement.

The original is impossible to find.

SOURCE: G.E. Spacemaker microwave turntable won't turn

The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

I have a Kenmore Over the range microwave oven--the turn table stopped turning. I think there might be a way to stop and start the turntable, but do not have the manual.


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.
I suspect the turntable motor has failed.

Turntable no longer turns


This problem is commonly attributed to a turntable motor that has worn out and needs to be replaced. 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. 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 offer helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with locating and proprly identifying the part(s) you need.

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

I have a gold star above range microwave, mvh1615ww, man. in Sept. 2006, the turntable is not turning, any quick fixes?


Try the TURNTABLE ON/OFF pad. Touch this pad to turn off the turntable or turn it back on. “OFF” will appear in the display when the turntable is turned off.

Do you mean MV1615?

If so, we have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you. You will need the free Adobe Reader to view or print it.

You may need a new turntable motor or coupler.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Sensor microwave. It is two years old but has not been used very much. I do not have a booklet on it so no information on what to do. It will start and the turn table will spin but...


Whirlpool customer service is here and you can also enter your model number on that page to download your owner's manual, installation instructions, etc..

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)

Since your turntable is turning, I'd say the problem is in the high voltage section, but it would help me narrow it down if you could reply back with your model number.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Russell hobbs microwave turntable wont turn


Is there an option via the Help or Custom Help to turn the turntable off and off?

This feature is common in over the range models.

Otherwise, it may be a bad motor.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPSWi_z7M58

If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven, as you're looking up from the stove top.

Please write back with your model number if you need further help.
