If you mean by "races" that the coooking time goes way too fast, then you may just need to reset the microwave. This is usually done by unplugging the microwave for several minutes then plugging it back in. You can also visit http://www.whirpool.com or call 1-866-698-2538 to speak with customer service. If that doesn't fix it, chances are that the integrated circuit (chip) is corrupted. Whirlpool doesn't make the chips available, so the whole control board (they may call it the "clock") would need to be replaced. If the time count sems correct, it's also possible that a sensor is bad, or maybe yopu have a bad door switch. You can do a Yahoo search for my file "doorsw.txt" to help you with the safety tips and disgnosis of door switch problems.

Whirlpool Roper Microwave MHE14XMB turntable stops turning

Hello :

The turntable has a separate motor under the unit(inside) that is quite small..... They just do go out from time to time..!!!!! Just remember to set the timer for shorter periods of time on items that require long cook times and turn it around the other way . Repairing is a bit expensive . You can ask first .

good luck .

please rate .

Whirlpool vt255 microwave does not stop

If your microwave oven doesn't appear to shut off when the door is open, you may have a problem with the door switch. The door switches, often referred to as interlock switches, provide power to the various components of the microwave. They are designed to interrupt the power when the door is open.

I HAVE A KENWOOD MICROWAVE GT/AL17,THE TURNTABLE HAS STOPED TURNING, ANY ADVICE MANY THANKS. TONY Nr IRRLAND

Two possibilities: either the turntable coupling is broken or the turntable motor has quit. The plastic coupling can wear or crack so it no longer fits properly on the turntable motor shaft. Then even though the motor still turns, the turntable doesn't. Or the motor itself may have stopped working. If the plastic coupling still looks normal and you can't rotate it easily by hand while it's in place, it's probably the motor.

I'm here in the US so I can't suggest where to find parts, but you should be able to locate a supplier who might have replacements available. Of course the oven will still work without the turntable running. You'll have to open the oven occasionally and turn the food yourself to insure even cooking.

Whirlpool microwave only cooks for limited time?

It's possible that the module that produces the microwaves is failing. The parts are cheaper but the labor may not so get an estimate before deciding if it's worth repairing or replacing.

Revolving plate no longer rotates . All else works, it continu;es to cook, but we need to move the items of food from time to time

Remove the plate, and check if the square shaped gear that normally spins the turntable is rotating.

If it is rotating, then replace the turntable gear.

If it is not rotating that means that the motor that spins the microwave turntable does not rotate, and must be replaced.
