    My husband managed to fit this quite easily, but he is very good with technical things. It was wonderful to be able to get the microwave working again within I day.

    We have had our Panasonic microwave for years and because it is such a good model we are keen to keep it rather than replace it. I also prefer to keep things going as long as I reasonably can rather than add to landfill. Over the years the only repairs needed have been replacing the Magnatron due to overheating (also from espares…..check your air vent is clear at the back to avoid this problem!) and now the turntable motor. Once you have removed your turntable from the oven, unplug from mains and turn it upside down. The cover for the motor is on the bottom of the oven and needs to be snipped out. The motor then takes a matter of a couple of minutes to replace. Simply pull the two leads off the motor (use a pair of needle nose pliers on the connectors to avoid pulling on the wires) remove the two screws from the motor (this is why you need the oven upside down rather than on it's side as the screws are small and if dropped while it's on it's side the screws will disappear into the oven meaning you now have to strip the case off!) then replacement is the reversal of removal as they say. You need to ensure that the motor shaft engages with the drive dog so may need to rotate the drive dog to get it to locate. You won't be able to rotate the motor shaft to achieve this due to the high gearing. When refitting the two motor screws, don't over tighten as these are only self tappers and will strip quite easily. when refitting the cover plate you will need to modify a small step into the two tabs on the one side with a pair of pliers so that when you have rotated it 180 degrees, they will fit in the slots on the underside and you now have a tab on the other side opposite with which you can screw the cover down…quite a clever design really. It sounds more complex than it is and it has taken significantly longer to write this than to complete the job but I'm very happy that I now have my oven back working for a very reasonable price and fit to soldier on for a few more years.

  • Q The plate covering the turntable motor is fixed all the way round and is actually joined to the back. The plate would be easy to get off by breaking the areas where it is sealed but how can I fix it back on again please? There are no screws. 2 Answers

      The electrical shielding offered by this plate is critical to safety - mircowaves heat flesh as well as food, so know the risk before proceeding. Search YouTube which has plenty of guiding videos. The design is such that you need to snip the thin metal between the holes at the perimiter of the plate in order to remove it. It goes back rotated 180 degrees with tabs locating on one side and use a self-tapping screw on the other side.

      I only broke 3/4 of the tabs and used the others as a hinge. refix by hinging down and bend tabs to hold in place. if not use some duct tape

      Don't know whether it is OK for all Panasonic's but would guess it probably is. Easy to install once you have worked out how.

  • Q Turntable motor - most likely cause? 1 Answer

    Hello My very old NN3800 has died. First the lamp blew. Then the internal fuse in the power supply blew (spectacularly). A new fuse met the same fate immediately when attempting to heat anything. The unit momentarily tried to start and then blew the fuse. So, if I spend £25 or so (new motor, bulb & fuse) and get this going I shall be very pleased but how likely is it that the turntable motor is the problem? Also, much of the foam that forms barriers, compartments and seals within the casing has disintegrated through age. Is this a problem? Any advice gratefully received. Thanks.

      The turntable motor is unlikely to be the cause of your problem and if you take off the connections and measure with a meter you would be easily able to identify a short circuit. The fault is more likely to be one of the door switches stuck or a fault with the high voltage section. We suggest due to the extremely high and dangerous voltages in microwaves you do not attempt a repair in this area.

  • Q Can I be sure that the speed is 5/6 rpm as the original motor? 1 Answer

    By Michaelb - PR6 - 06 February 2014

    • A
      This is the speed quoted on the label on this motor and as a mains synchronous motor it will fix to the supply frequency and keep this speed of 5 rpm on 50 hz supply and 6 rpm on 60 hz supply.

  • Q Advice on compatibility 1 Answer

    The turntable motor of my Sharp Carousel looks ALMOST identical to this one, with slightly different specifications and shorter metal drive shaft. [ 2.5 rpm / 2.5 watt - don't know what "FREE" means ] Should I take a chance it will be a suitable replacement; some others reporting here shortened the drive shaft to make it work ? On dismantling this motor it was easily apparent why/how it failed; liquid had made its way onto the very fine wire coil and burned it out. That seems to beg the question on why these motors are not made more waterproof ?

      The motor should certainly do the job you require but the shaft length may prevent the drive 'hub' from sitting at the correct level and cause the turntable to be raised of the wheels. It may be possible to trim the motor shaft with a hacksaw. These motors cannot normally get water in unless large quantities of liquid is spilt or excess water when cleaning is allowed down the shaft.
