Question about GE JE1590 Convection / Microwave Oven
My Kenmore Elite microwave (countertop model) is making a high pitched humm or buzz, almost can't hear it at all. It's louder when you open the door. It works just fine except the sound. We unplugged it for now. Any suggestions? GE je1590sh02 one year old. Make high pitched hum or howl while operating. Sound is similar to that made if you rub around the rim of a crystal goblet with tip of finger. Cooks food ok. GE je1590sh02 one year old. Make high pitched hum or howl while operating.

SOURCE: High pitched hum/buzz
By high-pitched, you mean it is not that same frequency as when it's cooking? Is the tone near or the same as the beep you hear when you press a key? Please post a little more information so we can help better.

Hi, this is common in most microwaves. this abnormal noise is coming from a faulty Magnetron. this device is responsible for the heating process and, it is damaged and not heating at all at this point.Simply replace the Magnetron and, this unit will start to heat once more.

With the details you described, the high voltage diode might be shorted( usually HVR 1X). It is connected from the Capacitor and the chassis, or else the capacitor is the one at fault,but not common .
