Microwave Turntable

The turntable on my*GE Profile Spacesaver microwave is starting to make noise and turn slow to the point where a heavy dish will stop turning but the sound remains.

What is going on and can I fix it?

RE: Microwave Turntable

That was the first thing my wife said. She said spray cooking oil on the little wheels. But, I did not do that because they spin very freely. I'll soak them and report back.

It's possible the bushings or axle shaft on the wheels has worn to the point that it jams. Remove the little wheels if you can, and have a good look.

RE: Microwave Turntable

The best solution for a microwave turntable is to buy one that doesn't have a turntable. They aren't necessary and then limit how big a pan you can put in the oven. IMHO they are all defective - yours is just more noticeably defective.

RE: Microwave Turntable

If you can't fix it externally (the wheels, etc.) you should probably replace it. They are not expensive, you would have a very hard time finding repair parts, and there's some risk to the user if you don't put it back together correctly.

I found a "replacement kit" for you online:

Ok, maybe "kit" isn't the right word but.....
