SOURCE: Microwave turntable won't stop running

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, but may instead be a loose door switch mount or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

SOURCE: the microwave does not heat

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

SOURCE: Microwave turns on, but no heat or turntable movement

The problem is that the magnatron is not getting power. Chance is that if could be a bolwn fuse inside the unit. If the fuse don't fix it then that leaves the charging diode, capacitor or the magnatron, or high voltage xformer of which without technical epertize I would not recomend attempting to replace. good luck

Microwave timer works but will motor will not run/cook.


If everything works on the unit, but you do not receive any heat or possibly the turntable does not turn you have a faulty magnetron (controls heat) and a faulty motor (controls turntable). You would require service on the unit, if parts are available. Some microwaves are so small in cubic foot size, that manufacturer's do not have parts available for purchase/repairs.

Goldstar under counter microwave spindle won't turn


use the common sense, and logically, fix it. God bless you
Microwave Runs, Heats, but turntable does not move This is a fairly easy one. First, make sure the turntable coupler under the glass dish is not broken. Second, on the control board, find the turntable relay and test for voltage. Some turntable motors are 24 volts DC, so make sure your testing the correct voltage. If no voltage from the control board, then replace the control board. Otherwise head towards the turntable motor.
On OTR models, you can get to the motor by un-screwing the bottom panel on the microwave. On countertop models, there will either be a knockout or screw on access panel. Check for voltage at the motor. If no voltage, check the wiring back towards the control. If voltage, then replace the turntable motor. The component list below also shows how to test a turntable motor.

The turntable has stopped revolving


If there is heat and the turntable is not working it can be due to failure of the drive, the belt or the motor or motor drive.
Check them one by one to confirm.

Microwave lights, clock, and everything works except when you press start, it just counts down like its cooking, but the microwave is actually not on. No hum as usual or plate rotating. It just counts...


Hi, one of the most common reasons why the turntable won't rotate is that the microwave isn't clean. The turntable guide and carousel can get sticky, preventing the turntable from properly moving. If you have built-on food particles or liquids, fill a bowl with 2 or 3 cups of water and 1 tsp. of liquid detergent and lemon. Run the microwave for about 3 minutes. Clean the microwave with a cloth, including the base of the turntable, guide, carousel grooves and microwave base. Your microwave turntable won't rotate if the grooves on the base of the turntable do not sit right on the carousel. Also, check the position of the turntable guide. Place the guide directly under the turntable. Remove the turntable, and then reposition it into the carousel grooves.
Motor The carousel motor is located beneath the base plate of the microwave. If the carousel isn't turning at all, check the motor. Disconnect the microwave from the power source, and remove the turntable, guide and base plate. Try turning the motor to see if it's just stuck. If it doesn't turn freely after a few seconds, examine the motor to see if it's burned out or corroded. Use an ohmmeter to see if the motor has continuity. If not, you must replace the motor.
Bushings The drive bushings are plastic components that sit underneath the cooking plate. Remove the plate, and examine the bushings. Use a magnifying glass if necessary to see if any debris is caught in the plastic. Clean the bushings, and reinsert the plate. Turn the microwave on to see if it rotates. If the bushings are extremely worn or if some of the plastic is broken off, you need to replace it, which is a complicated repair for consumers. Contact a service technician for assistance.

Turntable doesn't turn


remove bottom panel,< screws along front and tips down > the turntable motor is in the middle. Unplug motor and use multi-meter< insert probes into plug end > run short cycle with something inside of unit," glass of water ", if you have voltage here then the motor is bad and needs replaced. If not then mother board most likely problem.

Microwave turntable makes a noise


Just dont listen to Mr Miller. He rambles way off subject and will say anything to feel like he is special.
All it takes is very fist sentence where he suggests it could be magnetron bad. Geee, if that were the case your microwave wouldnt heat/cook so you wouldnt be here having a noise problem would you? Its kinda like the mechanic saying your noisy brakes could be caused by a empty gas tank.

Cause? - could be motor that operates turntable going bad, food or something lodged anywhere in moving parts of turntable operation which includes unseen area, or moving part that is been somehow bent or moved (unlikely without impact to microwave or previous work done possibly leaving something loose).

Solution? - I am ignorant of specific assembly of your microwave but on many you can access motor from bottom (unplug microwave first) and replace motor yourself if you are somewhat mechanical. The cheapest easiest 1st step would be clean very well around all parts and even clean any debris you find when taken apart, then recover and turn on to see. Not the likliest but its cheap and easy and you have to take apart bottom to replace motor anyway so not really much extra work.

Light, turntable and fan don't work


Possibly the light bulb has blown, which has blown on a track on the board which has taken out the turntable motor and the fan. Also, there could be a problem with the door switch.

Turntable sometimes works, mostly doesn't


It sounds like you have a jamming turntable motor.

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 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 usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Turntable failure


You probably have a defective turntable motor. They are fairly simple to replace and generally runs about $30-$35. You can access the motor by removing the bottom panel from the microwave. There are a couple of wire connectors and a few screws holding it in. You will, of course need to secure the main power and/or unplug the unit first. The spindle that the carousel and plate ride on, just pops off by lifting straight up from the inside of the oven cavity. Let me know if you need any further advice. I hope this helps you.
