Question about LG Over-the-Range Microwave

1 Answer

My microwave works but the turntable stopped turning. Do you have any idea how much it would cost me, I am a senior lady, to have a repairman come fix it?

Thank you sooo much for any help.

The part is just a small motor. really easy to replace. and the part is inexpensive maybe under $20. but for a service person to come out and do the repair is pretty expensive in most places. at least $100. but if anyone you know is at all handy, they could do it easily for you. a couple of screws remove the bottom on the microwave. a couple of screws hold the motor, and two quick connect wires. thats it. good luck. (if this is just a tabletop microwave maybe a new one would be a better option. usually under $75)

My microwave turns on, turntable turns, just won't heat. the microwave is 6 years old. Is it wiser to bring in a repairman or just replace? there is a picture of the microwave by the timer window.

There are 2 fuses inside the cabinet. One is for the clock and turntable. The other is for the high voltage transformer and the microwave module. If this fuse is blown either the transformer is shorted or the module has failed to cause the fuse to blow. Parts and Labor can get close to the cost of a new one, so get an estimate so you can have information to make your decision

Turntable not turning--new computer installed at 300.00 -was turning when repairman left-not working again today--

Check your owners manual as some turntables can be turned off by a switch on the control panel. If not, the turn table connections may have come loose from the control board or the motor could have died..

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.

I have a frid microwave FMV145KB2 that has stop working

if the magnetron is shot, then replace the microwave! the magnetron is what produces the 'microwaves' that do the heating. get rid of it! buy a new one! the smell is from overheating circuitry- don't want to take the chance of a fire!
these days you can replace it pretty cheaply- with a fine piece of technology made in china! but, if it lasts 3-4 years, it's pretty cost effective.
once again! if your getting a 'burning' smell from it, unplug it and dispose of it!
good luck!

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
