If the oven is STILL heating, but the carousel isn't turning, the symptoms you describe are commonly attributed to a turntable motor that has worn out and may need to be replaced. The motor is attached to the center plastic piece (called a turntable shaft, turntable ring or coupler) under the middle of the glass tray. The following link explains how to access and replace the motor:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3555716-replacing_a_turntable_motor_on_a_microwa

This is a very simple repair, that usually is not expensive. The price will be determined by the model and manufacturer. This repair can also be performed on an over the range model microwave oven WITHOUT uninstalling it.

You can refer to any of the following websites for comparison:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites listed have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with locating and properly identifying the part(s) you may need.

The average price for a motor is usually about $25 to $45 (U.S. Dollars). If your model number is not listed at all the sites, you may also try these sites that carry the Russell Hobbs brand parts:

You will need to physically rotate whatever you are heating about midway through the cook time to ensure even heating. Early model microwave ovens were not equipped with a rotating carousel and this was the common procedure.

I was given a Russell hobbs microwave combi Ct/la30 without an instruction manual and I've just discovered the microwave has stopped heating. It sounds as if working. Thanks in advance


There are multiple possible causes for the problem. Here's a partial list: magnetron, high voltage capacitor, high voltage rectifier, power relay, inverter board (if an inverter oven), thermistor on magnetron (if so equipped), and on some units, a door switch.

My microwave RM2013-G has stopped heating food but everything else works


Magnetron needs replaced.

CAUTION: Your microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. We strongly suggest you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair.
