    At ten years old the Turntable motor on our Panasonic combination oven decided to quit life as it knew it, at such an age I doubted that I would be able to get a replacement but espares were able to supply, in 24 hours as well. That was a bonus as this oven is used for all my daily cooking. Now for the bad news the Web Site states if you order early enough you'll receive the goods by 9 am next day we didn't but it was delivered as DPD stated in their email between 12:00 and 13:00 hrs

    This motor was much easier to install than I had expected. A metal plate on the underside of the microwave needs to be cut out, but I used heavy duty wire cutters to snip between the pairs of holes around the edge and easily removed the plate. The motor is held in place with two small Phillips screws, I used a pearl-catcher to avoid dropping the screws inside the base of the Microwave, I pulled off the two wire connectors from the old motor and transferred them to the new, I then fitted the motor and replaced the two Phillips screws. I then removed the larger screw from the base which is used to refix the plate that was cut out. It needs to be rotated through 180 degrees and the two tabs fit in the slots on the base which is all held in place by the larger screw. Less than 10 minutes work.

    Read all other reviews & decided to go ahead with purchase. The online videos helped with installation. It took me a bit longer to install as I am not an expert (45 mins ) but well worth it. I am happy as my Panasonic microwave turntable back to normal.

  • 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

      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.
