No, the plastic insert that hold glass will break.

You probably have a defective turntable motor. They are fairly simple to replace and generally runs about $30-$35. You can access the motor by removing the bottom panel from the microwave. There are a couple of wire connectors and a few screws holding it in. You will, of course need to secure the main power and/or unplug the unit first. The spindle that the carousel and plate ride on, just pops off by lifting straight up from the inside of the oven cavity. Let me know if you need any further advice. I hope this helps you.

Frigidaire FFMV164LS 1.6 Cu. Ft. Over-The-Range Microwave. Hello, Can you turn off the turntable on Frigidaire FFMV164LSA? The manual doesn't specify.

Question edited for clarity.

No you can't. The turntable needs to rotate the food or the microwave energy will burn holes in your food. The rotation spreads the heat evenly throughout the food. You can test it by removing the turntable and put a plate on the base with a pound of butter on it. Microwave on full power for a minute. Notice the holes?

Turntable will not rotate and food will not heat up.

If it is not cooking and the turntable will not turn, this sounds like the secondary interlock switch is bad. Almost always this failure is caused by opening the door when it is in a cook cycle. Pushing the stop button before you open the door will prevent this in the future..

Turntable will not rotate.

Hi.when the turntable is not workinh, then there is a problem with the MOTOR inside the oven.MOTOR is responsible of rotating the turntable.To check further ,back portion of the oven must be removed to check further the motor.Using a tester yuo can check the continuity of the motor by setting it to OHMS.if the testers pointers move a little it means motor is not short -circuited if otherwise it moves to its maximum amount it means MOTOR is short-circuited and yuo have to replace it with a new one .Hope this helps.

I hv a 24ltr Sharp Carasoul Microwave. Few days back, its plate stopped working, but its heating the food fine. Why has the plate stopped rotating? Will the food be evenly heated even though the plate...

> Why has the plate stopped rotating?

The turntable system typically consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

Here is 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.

You order Sharp parts Encompass here or call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

> Will the food be evenly heated even though the plate is not rotating?

No.

Hi I have an Emerson microwave oven MW8998B. The turn table will not rotate while cooking. The smaller bags of popcorn just burn the bag. Does this need a repairman or can I fix it myself. Also, I am able...

Hi, I had the same problem with my Emerson microwave. As I rent out the house, and the turntable stopped working while I was away, my rental agent bought another Emerson microwave. On my return I tried using the new (brown) plastic turntable on the old microwave, and found it worked perfectly. Maybe it would be possible for you to order a replacement turntable part. Hope this helps. Good luck, Rosalind

Turntable sometimes works, mostly doesn't

It sounds like you have a jamming turntable motor.

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 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.
