Choosing a Microwave Turntable Plate

microwave oven turntable plate replacementIf you’re looking for a microwave turntable plate replacement, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to where we will help you make the right selection.

We’ll even go one step farther — if you can’t find a microwave replacement plate on this website, then we’ll help you find one from a competitor — if it is available.


Choosing a replacement microwave plate can be confusing when you’re looking for a great deal. While it is fairly easy to just visit the site of the brand manufacturer for your microwave oven, the costs for replacement parts through their websites are often up to 50% higher than you can get elsewhere.

With that said, you cannot simply attempt to replace, for example, a 12-inch microwave turntable plate with any 12-inch plate. While it does not need to be from the manufacturer — there are plenty of aftermarket parts — it still needs to fit the signature configuration by that manufacturer to work.


Here are the key components that make a microwave glass plate assembly. These 3 separate parts, as noted in the image below, need to work in tandem with each other for your microwave plate to turn. How your replacement turntable sits on the roller and motor hub are critical — this is why, in the example above, a 12-inch glass plate will not work in all brands.

Choosing OEM or AfterMarket Replacement Plates

When buying through a manufacturer’s website like GE for example you can be fairly confident you are purchasing an OEM or Original Equipment Manufacturer part. When purchasing through other internet sites, it is important to note whether you are getting an OEM replacement or a manufacturer’s compatible replacement.

Great savings can be had when purchasing a compatible replacement plate for your microwave as long as the vendor states which models the plate is compatible with or provides enough detailed measurements (for the plate and the roller ring) so you’ll know it will work with your glass plate assembly.
