Sometimes it pays to have it fixed (at an authorized repair facility) - especially if you really like the one you have. Mine died about 10 years ago and it cost me about $36 to have repaired - $25 labor (their minimum charge) and $11 parts and sales tax - it was just a blown capacitor. Now, if the problem is a blown high voltage supply, transformer, magnetron tube - that's the time to look around for a new one ... depending on make, model, power output - parts can cost somewhere in the range of $90-$175!

If everything else works but the turntable quits - it could be as simple as a broken drive belt - probably less than $10.

I do not suggest anyone pop open the case and start poking around inside unless you are a trained, qualified, microwave repairman! There are some lethal high voltages in there ... touch the wrong thing and you are lucky if the worst that happens is that you find yourself peeling yourself off the wall on the other side of the room.

Look into a commercial model. They typically do not have turntables.

Yeah, my old Panasonic worked perfectly well. but the door window had cracked one day when I went to clean it, which prompted me to get the even bigger Kenmore Toast N' Wave unit.

The smaller old Panasonic didn't really go t o waste, however. Here in Eastie, one man's junk is another man's treasure!! I threw in out to be picked up the next morning, but I really didn't want it to BE picked up by the trash collector.

Someone was looking through the trash to try to salvage whatever they could. I told him about the old microwave, that it still works and that just the door window is cracked. He came back to get it within a few minutes. So HE has it now and is using it.
