Problem: another common cause for microwave turntable not turning is glass tray drive coupling problem. the coupling could either be broken or stripped out. most of the ovens and microwaves have a round glass turntable which is powered by a motor driven coupler as well as a roller guide., here are the most common reasons your maytag microwave's turntable isn't turning - and the parts & instructions to fix the problem yourself. fix things more easily!.
The fuse on this unit would shut the complete unit down if it went out. i look to see if a thermostat could be the issue but it is not inline with the turntable., if the microwave turntable is not turning the glass tray drive coupling could be broken or stripped out. gently pull the coupling off the drive motor shaft to inspect the drive coupling for damage.....
