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, and a list of Dealers for spare parts, as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

How do I replace the turntable motor?


Roger, lay your microwave on it's back after taking your turntable plate out of the microwave. Looking at the bottom plate you should see in the middle an area that covers your motor that should be square, a rectangle, or a circle. There usually is also a screw that is just screwed into the bottom plate. Around the middle part, whichever shape it is, there will be a series of small holes with a thin piece of metal going between the holes, get a pair of side cutters and snip the thin strips of metal and that will give you access to the motor when they are all snipped out. To replace it you usually just have to turn the plate 180 degrees and use that screw to hold it back in place. Hope this helps.

MELTED SHAFT & BROKE PLATE RUNNING MICROWAVE EMPTY. HOW TO REPLACE SHAFT?


You will need to remove from the bottom of the oven but make sure that you hae not damaged the magnetron with the dry run.
You can try to get the part from a salvaged set as many arre available, junked when the magnetron fails.
Bothe plate and shaft can be sourced like this and will worrk outt cheaper only if you try sources of workshops.

Microwave turntable is jerky rather than smoothly turning... it's a Whirlpool Gold GH8155XMB-0, made in October 2003 ... is there some sort of belt that can be replaced or motor or something? Otherwise,...


first check the roller under the turntable is correctly seated if so pull the drive coupling out from inside the oven and check for damage. If all of the above are OK you will need a replacenet turntable motor

How do I remove the waffle grate plates from my Waring Waffle Pro? Can't find my manual.--Frank Davis


Hi,
Here is how you need to replace or bring out the plates.

Make sure you are unplugged from the wall before doing anything or you will get shocked. You do not need to take the bottom cover off the base. You do not need to take the top plate apart (they super glued one screw in the top plate (lid), you'll strip out the screw head trying to remove it anyhow). All you need to open is the bottom plate, it has 4 screws in it you will see when you open the lid, these screws are not super glued and will come out. 2 on each side in the back, 2 in the center of the front, long screws go in the back, short in the front.

There are 2 white wires, 1 black wire, 1 green wire that run up the neck of the waffle maker to heat the top and bottom heating elements. The 2 white wires are neutral, the green wire is a ground, the black wire is power.

This black wire runs from the electronic control board in the base of the unit, up the neck in the rear, through a thermal fuse, to the bottom element then jumps up to the top element. All you need to take apart is the bottom plate, the part you pour the batter into. It has 4 screws you will see when you open the top plate up, take those out and you are going to find the black wire is covered by a white rubber like tube about 3 inches long. In the center of this rubber insulation there is a metal clip with a single screw. Take that screw out, pull off the metal clip and slide (don't cut) the rubber like insulation back.

You will find the black wire is crimped onto a silver metal bullet looking component. This component is called a "thermal fuse", its designed to fail at 240 degrees C. Its obviously a design flaw and the thermal fuse is under rated for the actual heat within the device. Its also a one shot fuse, so when it blows it kills power on the black wire from going to the top and bottom plates, thus no heat. It is not resettable.

I didn't even cut mine out (Waring is very skimpy with their wire, they don't leave you even a hint of extra wire to work with). I just tightly twisted the bare metal wire on each side of this component like a bread tie leaving the blown fuse in place. Then be sure to slide the rubber like insulation back over all of the bare metal so it is covering the black wire on both sides. If you don't it will short out and blow your house circuit breaker when you turn it on.

This thermal fuse was probably a requirement of the UL Listing. Its over kill, everything in there is metal so if it over heats in that area there is nothing flammable to burn. If a run away temperature occurs the wire itself will melt, short out and trip your house breaker. There are stacks of these units brand new with this same problem anyone reading this is having, the thermal fuse is under rated, the fix is simple

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

Turnable plate isn't working


in order to be 100 % sure
you would have to check voltage to the motor while its suppposed to operate
take off the bottom 6 screws, you might need whats called a safe t, a torque wrench or star with a hole
most use phillips,
drop the bottom, you should see the turn table motor
disconnect the two leads and connect them to a voltmeter,,,
turn the unit on
you should read voltage to the meter
if not the problem is in your control board and will need to be replace
if you do read voltage and the motor is not turning
you will need to replace the actual motor
either way its a pretty simple repair and can be done without taking the unit dwon

Your turntable motor is shot. It's simple to remove and replace. you don't even have to take the microwave out of the shelf. To remove it take out seven screw around the perimeter of the bottom. Lift up on back of bottom to get over clips on the back. Remove the two screws holding the motor in and detach the plug. Find a electrical repair shop for you make pick it up and replace it. When replacing it take out plate and hold plate key down and align flat side of shaft on motor with the plate key.
