The coupler seems to be ok, should it just pop off, I don't want to pry it off and break it? My wife said she has heard a grinding noise which I have not heard.
Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.

Scott,

Just pull it up and don't be afraid to break the coupler - it's just 7 bucks.

I pulled it out and it was broken so either I broke it pulling it out or it was already broken. I will order the piece and see if that does it.
Thanks,
Scott

Default Microwave turntable not turning

Hi,

I'm having the same trouble as well. The turntable will not rotate. I have a Frigidaire model# GLMV168KQ3 manufactured in January of 2002. Please help me troubleshoot. By the way the button to push to turn the turntable on and off does beep like it is trying to work and the display shows like it is being turned on and off, just not rotating!

Thanks

Remove the bottom cover and unplug the plug from the turntable motor.

Check for 21VAC coming to the motor while the microwave is "on" and turntable option is "on" as well.

Post the results.

Default Same problem with Frigidaire Gallery CFMT148GPB2

Hi,
I am having the same problem with the Frigidaire Gallery CFMT148GPB2. Turns half a turn sometimes with the glass plate, turns very slowly without it.
Would someone be so kind to provide me with a diagram and the required part numbers for this model?
Thank you very much.

dutchie,

The model number you posted does not come up. Is it American model? Verify and repost it, please.

Gene.

Default Frigidaire CFMT

Hi Gene, thanks for your reply.
I'm actually in Canada. When I google part of the model number I find CFMT 148GPB1 which I assume must be the same unit. Date on the tag says Jan. 2000, don't know if that helps. It's an over the range microwave from the Frigidaire Professional line.
Hope you can help, thanks.

Default Motor for FMT148GPB2

Hi Gene,
I discovered that the model for my microwave is actually the FMT148GPB2, all I had to do was drop the C.
I took out the turntable motor which seems to be defective, the model is ST-16FE(EX73SAAA3). I could not find this part on your site, do you sell it under a differnt part#?
Thanks a lot for your help.
