Replacement of the turntable motor should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair service.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

But here is a basic method if you are mechanically minded and have electrical safety knowledge.

I am assuming the plastic coupler is not split or broken and causing the problem.

The motor assembly is fixed to the base of the oven usually with two screws and access is obtained usually by removing the inspection plate directly beneath the motor. It is usually a plug in synchronous motor that revolves at a few revs per minute but the plastic cogs in the motors gear box fail and the motor assembly must be replaced. They are fairly inexpensive and obtainable usually from a domestic appliance repair shop.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity and turn it upside down if it is a tabletop model, a little more complicated if it is built in!
Remove the inspection plate, sometimes it must be cut out with sharp cutters, and disconnect the motor. Remove the motor and go and get a new one. Fit the new motor and fit the inspection cover back on the base by turning it to fit and using an extra screw fix it then put the microwave back in its position. Plug it back in, with the turntable and plate. Put a cup of water on the plate inside of the oven and heat for 20 seconds to check the plate goes round.
Hope this helps.

Hi, we have a Bosch HMT8656GB built-in microwave, and the other night (shortly after microwaving several potatoes), it shorted out and tripped the main fuse for the kitchen sockets. We've isolated it to...


Confirm that the receptacle where the microwave is plugged in is not faulty by plugging something else in the recepticle and seeing if it works or if the fuse blows. Check the power cord of the microwave for broken, frayed wires. Also check the bulb socket for broken wires. It may or may not be worth the cost of repair, depending on the repair cost verses a new microwave. There are repair parts available.

Door does not click shut


This can usually be fixed--search the model number first for a service manual to see if it can be found---failing there contact the maker--if a good unit the cost for repair should be worth it. A lot of companies make better replacement latches etc then the unit came with.

It is also possible (I have seen this) there is a bulletin on this model for this and parts and or labor might be free.

Bosch hmt8656gb microwave doesn't always start


The problem is in the keypad control board and usually means it must be replaced to fix the problem, and the part alone is expensive.

Microwave lights up and rotates but does not heat?


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

The door on my bosch hmt8655gb wil not shut please can tell me the best way to repair rob


Door catches.

One of the latches may have broken off and is not lifting the other latch clear of the housing. Remove from any power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the clamp mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door to open. When a new door lever is in place, the door may be easily adjusted by slackening off the screws that clamp the door catch/actuators in place whilst holding the door closed and then tightening the screws. The rear of the door may be adjusted by slackening the lower door hinge screws and adjusting as required.
I hope that helps.
