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

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Why is the microwave running without being turned on?


These above range microwaves "hoods" automatically turn on a cooling fan even when the microwave is not in use. If you read the manuals you will see warnings about the fans automatically starting. Even when the microwave is not in use opening the door likely interrupts the power to the automatic cooling fan.

Turn table does not turn


unplugg it for over a hour then try again, if that does nothing you will need to replace the turntable motor.
Just so you know that model has a stir so it does not need to turn to heat just right

DOOR ISSUES?


not sure how technically inclined you are and whether you like taking things apart. it's either the door has become slightly warped or the hinge is abit loose or the safety switch needs adjustment. if it's the switch i'm not sure that can be adjusted from outside the machine.

PCB repair


Yes we can.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help or see our Web site.

Before you power it back up after the repair, you should double-check the wiring of the switches against the "mini-manual".

It's located behind the grille or below the circuit board.

If you don't find yours, you can download it here.
