    Not all microwave turntables are the same, although most microwave turntables are very similar in appearance and are usually around the same size, you shouldn’t purchase a replacement turntable by sight.

    The majority of microwave turntables are model specific. This means that it is highly unlikely that a turntable specifically designed for a Panasonic microwave will fit a Samsung microwave - even if they look the same at first glance.

    Search For Your New Turntable Using The Model Number:

    To search for a replacement microwave turntable you need to locate the model number, and these can usually be found on the label or rating plate, which also contains the serial number and manufacturing date.

    This label is usually found inside the microwave on the left hand wall or on the back of the unit. It can also be located around the inside of the door frame or on the side of the control panel frame next to where the door closes.

    Once you've located the model number it is really easy to find the turntable that's right for your microwave. You have two options, you can use our microwave turntable finder or the search box at the top of this page (be sure to include any dashes and spaces).

    Both methods will display a list of all suitable turntables for your model. If the website doesn’t show the product you’re looking for give us a call on 0844 557 5575.
