Question about Microwave Ovens
i have a samsung model no CE118KF microwave.it's about six years old. of late the glass dish/tray stops rotating intermittently when the m/w is switched on.the fault is diagnosed as the motor going bad. should i go ahead and change the motor? also, the m/w heats up things very quickly now as compared to earlier.the glass tray/or any vessel get very hot even with just a minute of heating which was not the case before. any corelation with my motor problem? please advise. grateful for your time on this.
If the turntable is not turning, you will get hot spots and uneven heating.
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.
You can get Samsung parts here.
