your control board is bad ,,, the circuits that control power to the turn table ,,, you can eather take the screws out on the bottom of the m/w and disconnect the turntable motor and not use it or replace the control board ,, if you disconnect the motor then wrap the wires with tape ,,,,, if you like the part number and price of the control let me know and i will see if i can pull it up for you / larry

That's what i was thinking, thanks Larry, if you can just give me an estimate so i kinda know what i am looking at that would be helpfull, is the control board easy to replace? Thanks again!!
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 8 years ago.
the part number for the smartboard is WB27X10931 and it cost about $130.00 you have to disconnect the m/w and remove the grill across the top and take the screw out holding the control panel on and drop it over and replace the board on the back ,,,, thanks for the accept and bonus
