A rubber gasket (seal) must be replaced. This seal connects the bottom of the tub to the rotating shaft (Agitator shaft).

A variety of factors determine how long these rubber gaskets last befroe they start cracking.

The seal is available from most appliance parts stores (local and on-line). The trouble is replacing it, it take about 2 hours for an amature and some major disassembly. Removing the agitator, the inner tub (the one that spins after rinse cycle), and some shaft pieces.

Cost for a repair technician will be about $150 to 200 (guess only - I am not sure about the rates in your town).

Good luck.

Phillips microwave oven vt255/bl tuntable does not rotate


HELLO.

The turntable is the unit in the center of a microwave that you set your food on. It rotates during the microwave cycle, making sure all parts of a dish are properly heated. These are typically made of either hard glass or microwave-safe plastic.

Your microwave turntable may not turn due to one of these problems explain below



(1)If your turntable is removable (as many are for cleaning purposes), it may have come loose from this turning mechanism.place the turntable properl on the turning mechanism.



(2)If your turntable was previously working and now does not any longer, check the settings on your microwave's LCD display to make sure you haven't accidentally turned off the turntable.


Most microwaves have different settings that the user can select with the press of a button, like a "Defrost" setting or a "Popcorn" setting. Certain microwaves may stop the turntable from turning during certain pre-programmed selection modes. Stop your microwave and don't use a pre-programmed mode. Instead, just specify the time using the number pads and start your microwave to see if your turntable begins to rotate again.



(3)The rotating mechanism on the inside of your microwave that rotates the turntable is actually connected to a small motor on the inside of your microwave's case. If this motor burns out or stops working, the mechanism will stop turning. This is something that needs to be replace.

FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO REPLACE THE FAULTY MOTOR.

THINGS NEEDED.

* screwdrivers

* replacement motor

* specific microwave information and part number


1 Open the microwave door, and carefully remove the turntable tray. Also, remove the frame that the turntable is positioned on. Both the turntable and the frame are not secured in the oven, so removing them is a quick process.

2 Remove the bottom panel of the microwave. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the number of screws securing the panel varies depending on the manufacturer and specific microwave. Once the bottom panel is loosened, disconnect its wiring harness in order to completely remove the panel.

3 Locate the turntable motor. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the motor compartment should be positioned below the center of the microwave. Unscrew the motor, disconnect the wires, and remove it from the microwave.

4 Determine the specific part number for the turntable motor so that a correct replacement can be purchased or ordered. Position the new motor into the shaft in the bottom of the microwave. Screw the motor securely into place.

5 Test the microwave to make sure that the turntable motor is operating correctly. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the motor can make noises if it was not positioned evenly in the shaft. Reconnect all of the wires that were detached when removing the old motor.

6 Reinsthall the microwave's bottom panel parts, and secure all of the screws in place. Reposition the turntable frame in the bottom of the microwave and place the turntable on top of it. Test the microwave in order to make sure that everything is working correctly.

Thanks.

My mixer is working fine but makes a very loud screeching noise so i am afraid to use it.


Hi..mixer has motor on it.It is responsible of rotating the pan.but yuo said it does worked however yuo can just hear a noise..If yuo can remove the motor on it.check if the small shafting runs smoothly .its just some debris has have blocked the shafting that makes any sound.Or the motor itself does not have any lubrication to run it smoothly..the ROTOR that is the inner part of the motor that rotates might as well does not have anymore lubrication .its bearing .So it would be better to check it further..Hope this idea helps.

My above the range Maytag Microwave oven plate does not rotate. Bought a new rotator wheel as the old one was broken, and the central spindle will rotate, but not with the plate on it. What can I do?


The spindle (called a turntable shaft) sits atop a small motor shaft from the turntable motor. You either have a weak turntable motor, stripped shaft (which allows the motor shaft to free spin when it has any weight on it), or both.

The turntable motor is located under the bottom panel of the microwave oven. You do not have to uninstall the oven for this repair.

First, unplug the unit, remove the glass carousel tray, and pull straight up on the turntable shaft to remove it. Next, locate and remove the series of screws along the bottom panel underneath the oven. The bottom panel will open exposing the drive motor. The motor comes out by disconnecting the connector plug and a couple of mounting screws.

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, you can view these parts at searspartsdirect.com. Locate items 11 (turntable motor) and 14 (shaft) under the "Cavity" heading. Other sites you may try are pcappliancerepair.com, appliancepartspros.com or repairclinic.com to see if you can find these parts any cheaper.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Turntable does not rotate


Hi there,

Well it seems that there is some fault in the turnable motor, turntable system consists of the motor and coupler, turntable support with rollers and the tray.
I have a video link to help you more on this -- how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand... please follow the below link -

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPSWi_z7M58

If motor grinding... etc., it means you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

Post further comments if you need more help....

Good Luck!!

Turntable


There's a small turntable motor under the bottom panel of the oven. You can access it by removing the series of screws holding this bottom panel in place underneath the oven. You either have a motor that is failing, or the turntable shaft which the carousel rides on, might worn and starting to slip on the motor shaft. The motor is held in with a fews screws and has an electrical connection you will need to unplug. The turntable shaft simply pulls off the shaft from this inside of the oven. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require addtional assistance.

PS For future reference, please post your make and model number as all microwave ovens are not made the same and can exhibit different symptoms.

Looks this model's turntable support has a coupler shaft built-in which is supposed to go down into the turntable motor hole and make contact with the turntable shaft. Is that right in your case?

So I would wonder if the turntable support has gotten bent due to heat. That's common on some models.

When you take it out and look at it from the side, are the legs straight and perpendicular to the shaft or are they bent down?

On some models, you can heat them over a stove flame, then put them on a flat surface with a weight to old them in position while they cool.

Otherwise, you'll need a new turntable support. LG / Goldstar calls this a "rotating ring".

Rotating ring/ Glide tray comes off the track -Elite Model 80803


Take your round glass tray and plastic three wheeled hoop to a local Sears store, open up the microwaves on display, find the one that is still using something similar, deftly trade out yours for theirs. The new wheeled plastic hoop wheels are slightly bigger and the glass tray raised guides are a bit longer, since the switch no problems like I had. Don't get caught. They do not have those parts for sale at the local Sears store.

I purchased a later model glass tray which was redesigned and now it works fine.Just take your tray to the store and compare it to a newer one and you will see the difference.
