Question about Microwave Ovens
I have sharp microwave that was manufacturerd in October 2006 from Cosco for under $100. All the function works but lately the turn table rotation is irregular. It turn slower than usual. I checked with a Sharp authorized repair service in town and they charge $60 per hour. Is there a way to fix it myself?
You can see and hear a YouTube video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.
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. You may have to cut the cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.
You can probably find an exploded view and order parts by entering your model number here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com
Sharp parts are usually less expensive when ordered from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com
