Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Sanyo SBM-20 breadmaker. The black colour plastic cam that forms part of the drive coupling broke up...don't know why.. I am trying to glue it together and, if successful, I will attach it back on to the rectangular plate that forms part of the motor drive. I presume it clicks firmly on to the plate but, due to the damage I think it won't now fit snugly..., I am therefore considering glueing it to the plate. If all this does not work can I obtain a new plastic cam and if so where can I get it? I live in China...the breadmaker was given by a friend who maybe purchased it in the UK......spares here I suspect will be difficult to obtain. My e:mail address is

I would contact and find a dealer in your area and if there isn't one take a look on ebay for spares.

My turntable doesn't turn

Sounds like the turntable drive coupling is broken. In the bottom of the microwave where your turntable is, underneath that is a small drive coupling that the motor shaft pushes into. if the motor doesn't turn or the coupling, which commonly has a D shape shaft to keep it from slipping, is broken, the tray will not turn. One quick test it to remove your tray and see if you can turn the coupling easily by hand, if you can you probably have a broken drive coupling. The turntable motor is very difficult to turn by its shaft. so if it turns easily it is probably a broke coupling. NEVER force your turntable around by hand or you can break that coupling.

Turntable wont turn on my sanyo s7560w

Base on other microwaves I suggest that it is either the drive element or the turntable motor. If you hear the motor turning it is likely to be the drive element. To get to the drive element take out the glass plate and there will be a plastic part that engages the plate. You should be able to pull the drive element out with a little work. The receptacle of the element will likely be shaped like a circle with a flat spot. If the plastic looks deformed it is likely the drive element. Don't be surprised that they want $30 for a new one. Use glue on the drive element as a last resort. With the drive element in but the glass out run the microwave for a few seconds. Can you see the drive element turning? No? New drive motor needed. It may be expensive but it should be easy to replace.

I need a manual for a Sanyo Automatice bread maker Model SBM-20 Reply to Elizabeth Hall

Most major manufacturers supply manuals online so if you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, Dealer Network for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps
