If the turntable stops turning, this is usually caused by the failure of the small motor that spins the turntable. This does not effect the heating but to replace this motor the cabinet needs to be open which will expose you to the hazards of the high voltage components.If motor is tested ok, then it can be motor belt issue.The belt may be jammed or broken.If belt is ok, then it can be bearings.The motor bearings worn out.--------- Click this link for more troubleshooting:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/05/microwave-oven-turntable-not-turning.html ------------ This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

There is a panel under the microwave, held on by one or more screws. Remove it and you will see the synchronous motor inside. There should be a plug to disconnect the wires. Remove the motor and fit a new one. Ensure that the microwave is disconnected from the wall outlet before attempting any work on it.

Turn table won't turn on ewave microwave oven


Almost certain if microwave still heats a bad motor or gear issue inside the unit--if unit will not heat the safety switch in the side that the door engages is the cause of the wheel or platter not turning--prevents unit from use if door open.

Turn table does not turn when heating. Interior light does not come on during cooking, works fine when door is opens.


some microwave is have PCB control if pcs is shorted some parts light bult,fan or syncronus motor is on mode we need to replace the pcb but some problem is only is micro switch,if mocro swict is rusty or corroded that the time not working the turn table,but you said every time open the door the ligth is ok,if the turn table also running during open door have problem in your pcb board that we need for replacement,but check the price of parts and make it desicion if you want to repair or buy a new one if your unit is very old.

The turntable on our Whirlpool VT256 oven has


it could be 1 of 3 things here 1 the coupling under the plate mat be warn or broken inside so the shaft of the motor maybe turning but not turning the plate take the plate out and put a cup of water in the unit and see if coupling moves without the plate if not thn see if you can remove the coupling and repeat the test if you can see the motor shaft moving thn u need a new coupling, if not thn you may need a new motor to test th motor you will need to turn the unit on it side remove the plate first on the underside on the unit round where motor is you will see a plate this will round or square you need to cut this away to expose the motor dont throw it away as you need to refit if after, it turns round and you screw it back on, when you have found the motor remove and replace it albeit the motor is powered by the pcb it is unlikely to be the pcb as the motor runs all the time so they do ware out also do look to see if your unit has a turn table switch off button on the controls or in the manual hope this helps and dont forget to unplug ur unit from the mains.

No heat. light ok, noise hasn't changed. I heard a pop


It's most likely the relay for the magnetron malfunctioning. It'll need professional service.

Microwave will not heat any thing.


the plate has nothing to do with the microwave heating up the food
but the magnetron that heat the food is bad and will need replacing
I would ask a electronic shop how much they would charge to replace it , and if is not worth it to you then a new one would be a good call
