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.

What size glass tray do I need for my Westinghouse model WCM770B/W microwave? I broke mine and cannot find the answer in the manual.


Frequent thrift stores or yard sales, or take a tape measure to the inside of the microwave
. If your dish was square, the glass plate should likely be about 1 inch less wide and 1 inch less deep that the inside of the box.
If you have a round plastic rotator, the dish should be about 1 -2 inches bigger in diameter than the plastic rotator.
God bless your efforts.

My ge micro will not stop turning


HELLO.

If by not turning mean turntable fault,the solution is given below in detail.

1 Press "Stop" to halt microwave operation.

2 Press the "Turntable" button once to turn off rotation.

3 Push the door-release button to open the microwave oven if you do not have a "Turntable" button on your control keypad.

4 Lift and remove the glass platter from the oven, then pick up the plastic track with three wheels below the platter. Set aside these parts.

5 Insert the elevated microwave cooking tray into the oven. The tray has three to four short legs that hold it above the bottom of the microwave, keeping it from interfering with the rotating bolt in the bottom center of the oven the drives the turntable. You can now place food on the elevated tray and cook normally without disrupting the drive bolt.

Thanks.

I bought a house with this Microwave - no instructions etc.Should there be a glass tray for it - I know it's an older model


If there is a recess for a tray and a drive in the middle of the floor of the oven, then it should have a rotating tray. My microwave is about 30 years old and has a rotating tray.

Our Kenmore model 721.80833500 tray jumps off its track. This has progressively gotten worse over time and now the little end wheel on the rotating arm has broken off. The microwave still works and still...


Found 2 possible solutions on the net. (1) Check the engineering change at a Sears store. They reengineered the glass tray and the narrow plastic band the tray glides on. Get the new items from Sears. (2) Cut 1/4" out of the narrow plastic band the glass tray glides on. Possible solutions that look promising.

YOU CAN TRY REMOVING THE GLASS TRAY AND TURNTABLE AND REPLACING IT WITH YOUR OLD GLASS TRAY (IF YOU HAD ONE) OR JUST ANY GLASS MICROWAVE TRAY. WITHOUT THE TURNTABLE, I CAN'T SEE HOW IT CAN ROTATE.

SAMSUNG Microwave Oven Model MD800WC/SC The Glass Tray does not rotate The oven heats OK.


If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

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

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 get parts here.

If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.
