Turntable Doesn't Rotate in Neff H5642 (1000w)

It's done this before. Rotating by hand and a bit of WD40 seems to have freed it up in the past, but not this time.

Can turn the spindle by hand, but it feels quite stiff.

Ideas, please, gratefully received!

I'm sure your motor has failed.

Sometimes it a broken post inside the motor, if you like to tinker.

Otherwise I would contact Neff's service people for a spare.

I'm experiencing occasional arching from the center of the oven i.e. out of the spindle that rotates the metal rack and glass turntable. I cleaned thoroughly and it seems to have minimized the proble


Its unlikely to be associated with the tuntable motor. Units are tuned to prevent arching. Therefore it appears something may have changed inside the unit. Be sure there are no loose items or bits of foil or other mateallic items inside. Also check metal turntable.

My daughter just moved into a townhouse and the microwave plate warms, however the plate doesn't rotate. Is there any easy way of fixing this issue


The rotating table in a microwave shouldn't be getting warm unless something is sitting on it and transferring heat to it. The chamber should not be left empty when the microwave is running. The motor that drives the table is of very low mechanical power but should be able to handle about any load it must. I suggest you remove the glass table, the ring on which it rides, put a cup of water in the chamber and turn it on. Look at the drive spindle that engages with the table when installed. If it isn't rotating 9should be easy to see) then the motor is defective which is highly unusual to see one fail. If the spindle is clearly not moving, then I recommend replacing the whole unit since while the part isn't expensive, the labor cost would likely make the repair uneconomical.

Microwave turns on but doesn't heat. Turntable does not rotate


The magnetron (the part that heats the food) is probably done, they tend to go out if the fuse didn't blow and it usually isn't worth fixing as the cost of the magnetron is almost what it would cost to buy a new microwave.
Sorry for the bad news.

Motor works but doesnt turn spindle with blade on it


you may have (probably) put something in there that wouldn't chop or grind, and the blade wasn't able to turn. When this occurs, a safety feature called a 'shear pin' breaks. The shear pin passes through on side of the base of the blade, through the motor shaft, and out the other side of the base of the blade. The pieces of the shear pin have to be removed, and replaced with a new pin. A common roll pin of the appropriate diameter should do the trick. Bear in mind the shear pin is a 'pressed fit', so removal of the old bits may be difficult. But it can be done.

Sharp R963 microwave turntable stopped rotating. I suspect the motor broke. How could I replace this please? It seems there are no ways to open the bottom of the oven. Thanks


You have to remove the cover to see how to do it ...

I had a similar trouble several years ago with my Sharp. I dont recall the specific details but I do recall it was easy after I got the cover off and studied it a little bit.

Turned out it was not the motor in my case ...

Generic questions and comments:

Does your microwave have a "popcorn" setting and are you using it? Is there a rotating table in your machine? Is your popcorn bag elevated on top of a bowl or similar? Are you using some other "sensor" setting? Can you use straight time setting and get it to go past the 1 min 45 second mark?

On my microwave, it takes just about that much time and the popcorn is done ... BUT only if I elevate the bag to about the middle of the oven.

Let me know if this works for you.

Turntable not rotating on my microwave


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again. If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes. You can download your owner's manual here: http://www.miele.co.uk/Resources/OperatingInstructions/M%20625%20EG.pdf On the last page it has the contact information for various countries. You can locate servicers or spare parts. 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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPSWi_z7M58 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.

GE turntable microwave Je1540WW 002 Turntable doesn't turn


I have had the turn table motor go defective in microwave ovens.

Normaly, before ordering a new motor, I always checked to make sure that there was power going to the motor assembly. I never had a power drive failure to a motor so-far. When they did not spin, the motor was defective. But, one day there will be a first time for me.

The fix was to purchase a new motor from the manufacture and install it. In some cases, I had to also replace the spindle key because the original broke when trying to remove it when removing the motor assembly.

I suggest that for servicing a microwave oven, you give it out to a service center to have the work done. There are safety issues when working on microwave ovens.
