Customer Question
Our over the range Frigidaire...
Our over the range Frigidaire micro wave turntable started a rumbling noise. If I take the glass tray out and put a smaller microwave plate on roller assembly the rumbling noise goes away. I checked rollers and all appear to be in good shape and turn easily. What would be causing the noise.
Thank You.

Usually the rumbling noise is just the turntable support going bad whether it's warped or the wheels don't want to turn properly or whatnot so that is the part I'd replace first. If the noise continues, the turntable motor below the microwave would need to be replaced.
