IMPORTANT: BEFORE REPLACING A PART IN ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT THE APPLIANCE IS FIRST UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS

Welcome to BuySpares, this video will show you how to replace the turntable in your microwave.

Before replacing a part in any electrical appliance, you must ensure that the appliance is first unplugged from the mains.

If the turntable in your microwave is no longer rotating the problem is likely to be caused by a faulty turntable motor.

The rotation of the turntable is essential for helping to cook food evenly so replacing the motor will improve the performance of your microwave. Start by removing the turntable and turntable roller from the appliance.

Turn the microwave upside down being careful not to scratch or pierce it. Locate and open the motor housing, on this model the plate has to be cut to detach it from the base you may need to remove the retaining screws.

Take note of how the motor is fitted into the microwave and its connections. Remove the motor and replace it with the new one reconnecting the wires exactly as the original. Close the housing and refit the screws, finally turn the microwave the right way up and place the turntable and roller back inside.
