Remove the glass tray and pull the coupler up. Check it for any cracks.

If the coupler is fine then the turntable motor has to be replaced.

It can be easy replaced after the bottom panel removed - just two screws and the wire plug.

- The part number for the coupler is AP2016754

- The part number for the turntable motor is AP2024962

Here are the break down diagrams for the GE microwave Model JVM1860SD001

Gene,
First, thank you for your concise advice posts on this site. They're perfect.
Secondly, I'm trying to follow your advice to repair/replace a GE microwave turntable motor. Can you please advise on how the coupler is removed? On the model I have, JVM1640WB, it does not lift out, as I know it does on some other designs.
The parts diagram provides insufficient detail (the photo of the coupler's underside is obscured).
Huge thanks.

Hi,

You are welcome.

You may want to remove the bottom panel first. Then remove the turntable motor. In such case the coupler will come off easily.

Default Microwave - No Heat, Turntable stopped spinning

I have recently had the same problem, and found this thread. We have a GE PT970S. At first, we noticed the turntable would turn when the door was opened. This lasted a few weeks, and then we noticed the turntable would stop turning and nothing would heat, but sporadically, the turntable would start again and then it heated food fine. Now, the turntable no longer spins and if I check it, the motor seems to be turning freely (there is not the normal motor sound you should hear if you spin it by hand). I checked the coupler, and it looks fine. I am curious:
1) Could a bad motor also stop the microwave from heating?
2) If not, does it seem plausible for a motor and a switch to go out at the same time on a 4 year old microwave?
3) Is it hard to separate the microwave from the oven in order to service it?

THANKS!!!

Default Microwave Turntable will not turn

Hi Gene,

Can you help me please?

I also have a GE Microwave Oven, where the turntable will not turn anymore.

It stopped working, a couple of months ago. Everything else works fine, but now I have to manually (turn my food every 15 seconds), to get it to cook right.

The model number of my GE microwave oven is:

Model - JES1334WD

Can you tell me, what might be wrong, and how I can fix it?

Thank You

Joe Q
