Hi and Welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Your microwave turntable motor is either stuck or has failed. These motors are quite frail internally. Without a model number I can not give you the correct replacement part number. There are 7 different turntable motor part numbers for Panasonic Microwaves. Note that 5 of the 7 part numbers are NOT available and the other 2 are out of stock with a 7 - 14 day back order using my resources to search for the parts. There maybe universal turntable motor I could point you to but again it depends on your model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Glass plate does not rotate

I ruined the part that turns the glass platter

It's not safe to disassemble or repair a microwave oven yourself. I would not try to use the damaged 'rotate' feature (you might invert one of those plastic microwave-safe plates above the spinner to avoid using it). However, I highly recommend a repair shop or (better yet) get a new microwave for $50 and be safe.

Here is a link to the replacement glass cook tray for your Panasonic NN-S961 microwave:

And here is another link to that part from Sears Parts Direct:

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.

As you can see from the website, the tray has the following dimensions:

Glass tray measures approximately 16 1/2 inches in overall diameter.

Outside diameter of turntable track is 10 7/8 inches.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

Panasonic Microwave Model NN-H765BF will rotate occasionally and not rotate occasionally. If I manually rotate the glass plate, I can feel the gear reduction.

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

Here is 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.

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

I have a Panasonic NN-E273S microwave, it appears to work correctly but there is no heat, please help

If it is running, including plate rotating, and there is no heat, then you need to replace a part called magnetron.

The magnetron is located behind a protective plate on the internal side of the owen.

Here you see a general diagram, and you can also buy the part. Browse with the mouse on top of the picture to see the magnetron.

Here you can also get parts and diagrams.

If you want to call atechnician you can use the number listed on the owner manual.

How to get the plate to rotate

I'm assuming you are talking about the turntable tray. If it's not rotating, make sure your microwave does not have a feature that allows you to disable the turntable rotation (refer to your owner's manual). If it's not a simple operator function, you more than likely have a defective turntable motor. The motor is located under the bottom of the microwave oven. It is a simple repair that requires minimal tools. If you wish to attempt a repair yourself, please post your complete model number (located aorund the door opening) and I can locate a part number for you. I hope this helps you.
