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.

What size glass tray do I need for my Westinghouse model WCM770B/W microwave? I broke mine and cannot find the answer in the manual.


Frequent thrift stores or yard sales, or take a tape measure to the inside of the microwave
. If your dish was square, the glass plate should likely be about 1 inch less wide and 1 inch less deep that the inside of the box.
If you have a round plastic rotator, the dish should be about 1 -2 inches bigger in diameter than the plastic rotator.
God bless your efforts.

Where can I get a glass turntable


Are you talking about just a new glass plate for your specific oven or a generic turntable mechanism? If just a glass plate, you have provided no brand or model info. Just examine how your old plate engaged - they aren't all the same but some will interchange. There are also inexpensive turntable devices that can be used to retrofit ovens without a rotating mechanism.

The glass plate is driven by a motor underneath. Power may not be getting to the motor or the motor may have failed

The glass plate will not rotate when trying to heat up your food...


Sounds like either the turntable motor has seized or that the shaft of the turntable motor has broken off inside the roller ring. You may need to chek with your local De'Longhi repairer.
