Fisrt check that there are no crumbs or other obstructions on the floor of the oven that would prevent the turntable assembly from rotating properly. Also try removing the plate and lifting up / checking the drive assembly inside the oven cavity to make sure that the turntable drive mechanism has not become disengaged from the motor shaft underneath.

If your problem is not something inside the oven cavity itself, then it may be the result of a simple loose wire to the turntable motor, or it may be a completely burned out motor altogether. Unfortunately the only way to determine the exact source of the problem for sure is to disassemble the unit and troubleshoot the components and connections inside.

A microwave contains a number of very hazardous components such as the main capacitor which can deliver lethal shocks even after the unit has been unplugged. Extreme care should be taken in the disassembly and maintenance of any microwave oven and should be left to a trained technician whenever possible.

Here is a link to the parts diagrams and price lists for your model:

The turntable drive motor is listed as part number 27 on the diagrams. Here is a link to the part details including price for that item if required:

Hope that was helpful. Good luck and take care.

Turntable stopped working (yes, I pressed the turntable on/off button)

It all depends on your model number of course, but if JUST the turntable is failing, it may just be a defective turntable motor or coupler.

If your internal cooling fan and/or inside / cavity light is defective, too, it may be the internal fan motor, a door switch, or a relay on the control board.

We repair those and can offer more free advice with the full model number and a little bit more detail about what's working, what's not, and when.

How to replace turntable on maytag microwave mmv4250bas

Is that MMV4205BAS?

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

First unplug the oven. Then you have to remove the bottom panel and then you'll see the turntable motor.

Unplug the wires from it, then remove the mounting screws.

Reassembly is the reverse, but be sure to put the coupler in and guide the motor into it, making sure the coupler properly engages the motor shaft before you tighten the screws.

I need to replace just the door handle on a Maytag Microwave (Model No. MMV4205BAS). All I've seen online for parts is a complete new door for anywhere from $220 to $300. Surely there is a cheaper...

The handles run about $25-35 here.

Here are the part numbers & descriptions:

W10279351 Black handle
W10279353 White handle
W10279355 Bisque handle

I have a 1993 1000 wt microwave the turntable was not work are there still parts these are the numbers I can find on the door 565383 10/01 ( model) HG34314163 ( serial)

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

NOTE: Enter your model number like this: 56-5383-10-01

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

Here is 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.

Glass turnable replacement

This answer assumes your model is MW8168B - if not, please reply back with your correct model number!

The original part number was shown as M0S0885 (or MOS0885) but it is listed as "no longer available".

In some cases, two microwave-safe plates can serve as a makeshift replacement for a missing tray. You have to find a saucer that fits securely on your turntable support, though. I've attached a photo.

One last option would be a Nordicware or Rubbermaid or similar wind-up carousel. Wal-Mart had them when I checked a few months ago, and you can probably still find them on Google's Froogle site at by searching for the key words: wind-up turntable.
