Beyond Microwave turntable - keep it stationary

Can you prevent the turntable from moving? I have a square container that would hit the sides of the oven.

    We "inherited" the microwave when we rented the condo. There was no manual. Nor, does it seem, that there is a feature on the keyboard. Is it possible to get the manual on-line?

    Thank you for your interest.

    Only if there is a feature on the keypad that allows this.

    Does you manual address this?

The turntable quit turning

The root will depend a bit on your microwave model. A few things to try:
  1. Take the (probably glass) tray that is rotated by a spindle in the middle. there should be a shaft with some sort of indented head matching the backside of the turntable. Is it covered in old multiply-nuked spaghetti sauce or other food cruft? If so, wipe off what you can, spray on some Simple Green or similar and let it sit for a while, try putting a washcloth with scalding water on it for a bit, whatever will soften up the gunk and let you wipe it off.
  2. Try to turn the shaft. Will it move at all? If grippable, can you gently grip it with a pair of pliers and get it to move at all? There may be a gear train under this to let some small motor do the turning with enough torque, so don't force it. All you're trying to do is see if the shaft has some wiggle to it and isn't physically stuck in place.
  3. Check the rollers - usually there's a ring with 3 or 4 small rollers between the carousel tray and the microwave cavity floor. Make sure that the rollers roll. if not, clean them or work them to get them rolling again. usually this part comes out and can be thrown in a bowl of soapy water to soak for a bit without harm.
  4. Many of these carousels will detect if something on the carousel is hitting a wall, and either reverse direction, or stop. This is since the inside is square, but the rotation area is round, so something sticking out on a diagonal at cook time may hit a wall. These mechanisms don't want to force the turn - you might overturn or break whatever is being heated, and make a mess. If that's the case, you might see if the shaft will turn with no carousel plate on top. IF so, something was stuck.
  5. beyond that will go into the specifics of the microwave model and how it's set up. I hope this may be of help!

    Good Luck!

Why does the microwave have the turntable keep moving/light stay on/keep vibrating whenever the door is closed?

< - contact me directly for free advice.

Remind me of your exact symptoms and the full model number from the tag in the cooking cavity or elsewhere on the oven.

Siemens HF26066GB plate is moving when door closed and not moving when open

Have a shop look at this---there usually is a recessed safety switch inside the jam that will prevent the unit from working with door open--sounds like the problem may be with it.

Turntable does not spin

There is a coupler that connects the turntable motor to the plate. It's the square or odd shaped object in the center of the microwave after the turntable is removed. You can try to pull it up from the microwave to see if it is broken or if it will turn by hand, it is probably broken.

Whirlpool otr microwave

Once i opened up the microwave, I found that some kind of capacitor or something (had two wires going to it) had fell down on top of the fan. I had to rig the plastic mounting bracket and re-attach it to a panel inside. That took care of the rubbing noise. It turned out that some one had unplugged the wire that powered the turntable. That took care of that. it seems to work fine now. Steve

Revolving plate no longer rotates . All else works, it continu;es to cook, but we need to move the items of food from time to time

Remove the plate, and check if the square shaped gear that normally spins the turntable is rotating.

If it is rotating, then replace the turntable gear.

If it is not rotating that means that the motor that spins the microwave turntable does not rotate, and must be replaced.

Clicking sound sporadically

That particular skillet is just too heavy a load for the turntable system to handle.

I would suggest a lighter skillet or a different container, otherwise, the motor or shaft or both will be damaged.

It is of course perfectly okay to put metal in a microwave (after all, that's what they're made of!) but you just have to do it only according to the instructions in the owner's manual.

And as you know, metal in convection mode poses no problem at all.

You just need to use a lighter or different container.

Check first the motor coupling under the turntable, if that is not the problem , then test and eventually replace the turntable motor.

Microwave turntable won't turn

You may have a tunrtable motor or spindle problem..
This info is from GE website..( link :

To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug this appliance from the power supply before attempting any maintenance or cleaning.
  • Make sure the turntable is centered and seated properly. On models with a stirrer motor there is a shaft protruding up through the floor of the microwave. Make sure the turntable is securely fastened to this shaft. On models that turn on a ring with wheels attached, make sure the turntable is seated securely on the ring.
  • Check the turntable to make sure it is placed right side up. If the turntable plate is upside down it will drag on the floor of the microwave.
  • Check to make sure that there is no food or debris under the "wheels" of the turntable ring. Food can prevent the wheels from moving forward.
  • Be certain you are pressing a cook function rather than a timer function.
  • If the microwave has a turntable on/off feature make sure the turntable was not inadvertently turned off. Try depressing the turntable on/off pad to re-engage the turntable.
