GE Spacemaker XL1800 Microwave

Alright...The microwave workes fine. But when i operate the unit, the turntable doesn't turn and the microwave starts making this raspy sound. I have to manually turn the rotating button off so it stoppes making the noise. What can I do to fix it? Have model #JVM1850WD 001 and unit started making horrible grinding sound yesterday. Sounds like its coming from turntable motor. Turntable rotates on and off. How do you turn off the turntable? Any solutions to motor noise and how do you access motor for replacement if necessary?

    The response I received below to my request how to fix the griding noise eminating from the turntable of my GE JVM1850WD Microwave is great if I had any idea how to disassemble the oven and access the turntable. Can someone please advise?

It is normal for a microwave to produce noiseduring its regular operation. A change in the type of noise produced is mostlikely indicative of some type of maintenance that needs to be performed.
The appearance of a grinding, squealing, orscraping sound could mean you need a belt replaced or that a motor is in needof lubrication. Performing minor maintenance tasks now, such as lubricating amotor and replacing a belt, can prevent having to conduct even more costlyrepairs in the future.

    If the turntable fails to rotate, open the door and look at the roller and ring assembly. Make sure that there is no food debris blocking the path of the wheels, and that the roller and ring assembly is seated properly. If not, it's pretty easy to re-align it. Sometimes though, the plastic coupler or the motor for the turntable may be defective. Other times the glass tray may jump off track. Simply re-seat the glass in the proper place. There are usually grooves in the plastic coupler that line up with grooves in the glass tray. To access the turntable, the cabinet needs to be opened. Some microwave ovens allow you to turn the turntable function off. Check to verify that it wasn't accidentally shut off. The last home check is to make sure you have pressed a cook function rather than a timed function. Call a professional appliance repair person if the case needs to be opened.

GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 microwave turntable


The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

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.

On some, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.


You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Use a hair blow dryer to dry out the underside of the microwave. After you are convinced that it is dry you may operate it again.

That said, if it still is acting up read this:

When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem. To resolve this problem, you need the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

GE Spacemaker XL1800 does not heat. All other functions appear to be working normally, the light comes on and the turntable functions. When turned on, it makes a humming noise slightly louder than normal,...


Possible bad heating element, You should remove the cover of the unit and look at the heating element with the power off. Until you get your problem resolved I would recommend not to even turn it on due to the fact that you are unsure what is going on and you smelt some burnt smell. Just for safety until you fine the problem

UPDATE: GE Spacemaker XL1800 Microwave


JVM1850BD002 is a correct model number. This is a GE made by Samsung. It sounds like the motor or coupler is bad. More likely the motor. If you grab the motor shaft and try to gently turn it, it may grind or slip a lot. That's a sign of a bad motor. If the coupler is bad, it will be cracked or broken, causing it to slip on the motor shaft or the turntable itself. The coupler is reference 40, and the motor is reference 43 on this handy exploded view drawing: http://genet.geappliances.com/IPCNet/Dispatcher?REQUEST=IPCNETGETPDF&file=00000000/00016500/00016593.p01.pdf (copy & paste whole URL) Here is the GE part price info on these two parts: DESCRIPTION DRAWING PART NO. PRICE MOTOR-SYNCHRONOUS 43 WB26X10038 $46.00 COUPLER 40 WB06X10144 $8.75 If the motor is bad, you might be able to find the Samsung part number printed on the motor label and look it up at http://www.samsungparts.com They often have parts for far less than the expensive GE parts.

Your turntable motor is shot. It's simple to remove and replace. you don't even have to take the microwave out of the shelf. To remove it take out seven screw around the perimeter of the bottom. Lift up on back of bottom to get over clips on the back. Remove the two screws holding the motor in and detach the plug. Find a electrical repair shop for you make pick it up and replace it. When replacing it take out plate and hold plate key down and align flat side of shaft on motor with the plate key.
