Sharp R930AK The turntable motor broke for the second time in 2 years. The first time it was fixed because it was inder warrenty but now they said too bad. My husbadn is very handi with appliances etc but is hesitant about a microwave. If he gets the part does he have to open the microwave or break the sealwhere the radiation can leak out. Thanks, Edna

    There is an access plate on the bottom of the oven which covers the motor. It comes off easily and the oven cover can remain in place.

We have the complete service manual on our site: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r930ak_aw_sm.pdf It contains all the safety, disassembly and part information you should need. You can order a new turntable motor (and likely a new "motor packing" grommet, and perhaps a new coupler) at Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com

The solution was good and the site for the diagrams was very useful but my question about the leakage of the radiation if it is opened wasn't answered.

The TT motor coupling has melted at the shaft. You can be sure of this if the TT tray free spins without any resistance. You will simply need to replace the hard plastic coupling.

My Sharp R957 turntable seems to be sticking. I've cleaned under the turntable and the support but it doesn't seem better. If I give it a push it works for a bit then slows down again.

Replacement of the turntable motor should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair service.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

But here is a basic method if you are mechanically minded and have electrical safety knowledge.

The motor assembly is fixed to the base of the oven usually with two screws and access is obtained usually by removing the inspection plate directly beneath the motor. It is usually a plug in synchronous motor that revolves at a few revs per minute but the plastic cogs in the motors gear box fail and the motor assembly must be replaced. They are fairly inexpensive and obtainable usually from a domestic appliance repair shop.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity and turn it upside down if it is a tabletop model, a little more complicated if it is built in!
Remove the inspection plate, sometimes it must be cut out with sharp cutters, and disconnect the motor. Remove the motor and go and get a new one. Fit the new motor and fit the inspection cover back on the base by turning it to fit and using an extra screw fix it then put the microwave back in its position. Plug it back in, with the turntable and plate. Put a cup of water on the plate inside of the oven and heat for 20 seconds to check the plate goes round.
Hope this helps.

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.

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 ...

Sharp Carousel Model R-9H56

Check that the plastic connector from your motor to the turn table is not broken , mine broke and it took weeks to solve the problem. Try rotating the part that protrude into the oven. If you can turn it by hand it is broken, lucky cheap to replace
