Sharp microwave oven R 85STM 900W (IEC 60705) purchased Dec.

Resolved Question:

Sharp microwave oven R 85STM 900W (IEC 60705) purchased Dec. 2005 After placing a med. sized iron casserole dish full of ingredients in the oven for 99 mins. on the convection oven mode, the turntable will not turn properly when oven used in any mode. Can it be mended do you think as I miss it very much? It is the first time such a container has been used in this appliance. It starts to turn sometimes but can't manage it. It is a great oven. Is this nodel, or similar. still available please?

Good morning, yes you can fix this;-)
The turntable motor has been damaged, likely due to the weight it was carrying.
If you are handy and have a few basic hand tools you can do this yourself for a lot less than having a service tech come out and fix it.
Let me know on that, if you need a tech, also let me know and I will provide a good one you can contact to make the repair.
But the best place to get the turntable motor is: http://www.4sharp.co.uk/

Hello, my name is George..

In support of Michael who is based in the USA and perhaps doesn't have the same access to UK suppliers as I do, this part is available from Wizard Distributors at a cost of £20.83, which is a fraction of the cost of the supplier Michael has provided you with.
