(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 .

The turntable motor is accessible under a cover plate beneath the microwave oven. It may have to be replaced. You can contact Panasonic directly or find an appliance parts supplier to obtain a replacement motor.

Panasonic nn ct766 turntable locked


If everything cooks as normal but the turntable does not turn then I would say that either the turntable motor has failed or the supply for the motor, either way this is not a problem you could fix yourself & so I would recommend taking to a microwave repair centre or service engineer.

The turntable on my NN-A554 microwave won't rotate, could it be the belt?


You require a new turntable motor. Easy enough to fit from underneath the cavity.
Ask a dealer for the turntable motor, they are relatively inexpensive.

The microwave turning table hasitantly rotates and stops. the Model number is NN-S951BF - manufactures in April 2001


The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it 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.

In some brands, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

It may be that the wheels on the support may be a bit dry. You can use a tiny amount of cooking spray or cooking oil to try to lube it.

Petroleum-based lubricants are not advised in food preparation areas such as the inside of the oven.

You'll want to be sure the support and the floor of the oven are very clean before applying the spray.

If that fixes it, great, but if it fails again in a short time, then the support needs to be replaced.

You can order Panasonic parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Turntable doesn't rotate


Your turntable motor need replacement. tip upside down with dish removed and gain access to turntable motor from underneath.(remove power plug before you start working on the m/wave.) 2 screws hold the small t/table motor in place.Unscrew both and pull motor upwards. Quote the info on the motor for a replacement. I find cooking isnt effected in any wayexcept if you want to bake things like cakes. It then requires the t/table motor.

I have a microwave oven i purchased jan/07.Themodel#nn-s605wf,serial#6BN6040597,. mY TURNTABLE will not turn can you tell me why.THANKS


Remove the glass turntable, then the roller ring. Then seta glas of water in the unit and turn it on for 5 to 10 seconds. Look through the door window and see if the drive hub is rotating. If it is, then check the underside of the glass table to match up the drive hub. If it isn't turming, the drive, then it is internal and should have a 1 yr warrantee minimum. Remember, the, the turntable and drive must engage each other and the roller ring in place. Good Luck, and let me know please. One more thing, make sure there isn't a Turntable on/off swirch set in the off position. Good Luck, Ne

Panasonic Microwave Turn table rotates when door is open


Found this Panasonic post in the Samsung section!

If it moves just a tiny bit when the door opens and then stops, that's normal.

If it keeps running when the door is open, that's usually due to a bad door switch or broken / loose door switch mount.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
