Question about Emerson MW8168B Microwave Oven

Lost Turntable Knob

I lost the little knob that fits under the glass plate. It's the small piece that fits directly in between the three bumps of the plate to make it rotate. What is this piece called and where do I purchase one?

That would be the turntable coupler.

My turntable quit turning, I looked in and found a what appears to be a piece of what looks like glass that acts as a shaft between the motor and the turntable was broken. I cant find the part or any...


If you are talking about the little piece that the center of the tray sits on (not the carousel ring), its called the coupler. Its actually made of plastic on all the microwave ovens I've ever worked on. I've never seen one made of glass. It connects to the turn table motor shaft. If you post back with a complete model number, I may be able to assist you in locating a part number.

If the coupler is not physically broken, you may be identifying the wrong part as your problem. The turntable is driven by a small motor which is mounted under the bottom panel of the oven. The coupler is mounted to the shaft of the motor and the glass tray sits on the coupler.

Post back and let me know if you need a coupler, or if your motor isn't turning. You can tell by removing the glass tray and pulling straight up on the coupler. It should come off the motor shaft in one piece. If its not broken, your motor probably needs replaced.

The following parts are in the turntable system: The turntable motor, underneath the floor of the microwave; the turntable coupler, which is like a small plastic piece; the turntable support, either a three-legged or circular piece with wheels; and the glass turntable tray.

It sounds like maybe your turntable support is missing?

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.

Lost glass turntable support wheel


I have the wheel you're looking for. We are tossing a broken Emerson MW8168B but I'll hold the turntable support for you if you want it. Let me know.

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 http://froogle.google.com by searching for the key words: wind-up turntable.

Either the coupler or the turntable support is bad.
