Question about Microwave Ovens
(Does the control panel allow it to be turned off and on? You can usually find the owner's manual here.)
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 order Panasonic parts here .
We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
