Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
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.
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. In some brands, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.
If yours is a GE, you can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
Please write back with your brand and model number if you need further help.
