How to Turn the Turntable Function On or Off

Using the Turntable Function on your KitchenAid Microwave

The Turntable function may be turned off, on select models, for manual cooking only.  This is also helpful when cooking with plates that are bigger than the turntable, or when cooking with plates that are side by side. There are two different style microwaves that have the turntable function.  Please see the steps below, on how to turn this function on and off.  Reminder: Please see your Use and Care Guide for specific information on your microwave.
