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 your model does not have this feature) but 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 usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Do you have a glass turning table for daewoo microwave oven of the attached model in the photo


Just one recommendation. When it come to microwave, sometimes the glass turning table could be compatible with other brands. So I recommend that you edit this post and add a picture of the glass table that you want. That way you may have a better chance on getting help.

Why is my turntable not turning in my microwave oven?


Is your microwave clean under the table? No stuck on food or anything? Does the the oven work without the table?
Does the little prop in the centre that turns the table move when there is no table on it? Try to carefully clean it and see if that helps.

Turn table will not turn


I'd check to see if the turntable motor has continuity. If it does, check to see if 120 volts is being supplied to it. If both are o.k., then the motor has probably bound-up in some way internally. There's also the possibility that it has mechanically become detached from the hub that turns the glass tray.

Turn Table wont turn


if you can check the turn table motor for resistance. 90 percent would be a broken motor which you could replace. just look for the motor at the bottom of the microwave and race the wire back to the pc board.

Turn table


The 22 seconds is the giveaway.

In most cases, this is a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer. You can find one here.
