It could be the turntable motor, the turntable support (with built-in coupler) or a problem on the control board. I would first look at the 3-legged turntable support with built-in coupler to see if it got hot and warped. It should be flat across the top from the center to the end of the legs. If the support's legs are pointing a bit downward, it will prevent the coupler from making contact with the motor shaft. I've held bent ones a few inches over a gas burner to heat them up where the legs meet the center hub, then set something a bit heavy on it to hold it in place while it cools. If it needs a new one, it is part # FROLPB025MRK0 and it runs $19.50 retail at Tritronics. A quick (but not necessarily definitive) test of the motor is to grab the shaft gently with pliers and gently try to turn it. If it moves slowly and makes a high-pitched whining noise, it's likely okay. If it won't turn or grinds, it is bad. The number for the new turntable motor is RMOTDA264WRZZ and it retails for $8.87. Please note that you may need to look under model R1600, R1600, R1601, R1601, R1610, or R1612. They are all mostly the same. Tritronics is at http://www.wehaveparts.com The service manual for the R1610, R1611, R1612 can be downloaded at: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R1610.pdf There may be a grommet bewteen the mtoro and turntable support. Don't lose that! Be safe!

Turntable not working

Remove the bottom cover to the oven and check to see if a rubber belt exists, if so it may have stretched and may be slipping. Replace the belt if one exists.

Light and fan stay on and turntable no longer work

Hi,
Not sure if your model has a belt driven turntable or gear driven. The cause of your problem is most likely a worn or loose drive gear or a drive belt which is worn or has come off.
Best have this checked at your local repair shop.

Best wishes,

Turntable stopped working

Most of these are belt driven. You need to uncase the unit and check the belt.

Like anything with high voltage, use good safety practices.

The turntable makes noise and is jerky as it turns

I believe your turntable is belt driven as opposed to direct drive. Your little belt is nearing the end of its useful life, I think.

Remove the cabinet. Turn the oven on its back. Look at the bottom.

1990 Sharp Carousel II over microwave / vent hood

Sharp calls that the turntable coupler when it's a separate part.

If it's part of the the part with three legs, that is called the turntable support.

You can order Sharp parts from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com

If yours is model R1610, we actually have that full service manual on our site at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r1610_sm.pdf

Microwave turntable won't turn

You will have to take it out and then take off the outer cover to expose the drive system for the turntable unless the items turns with the turntable removed. If it does then (and if it is belt driven) the belt may be worn and slipping. Anyway you look at it the cover has to come off to see what is happening.

My turntable does not work.

The turntable is driven by a motor thru a fairly long belt which is no doubt stretched and worn out. It isn't very easy to get at either being underneath the unit.
