    I have the same problem. Does not appear to affect the functioning of the microwave, but is annoying. It happens intermittently.

You have a problem with the microwave stirrer motor. Cost of part is near $90 and will require 2+ hours to get to, exchange and close back up.

Either get a new microwave of put up with the noise (which I did for 6+ years).

I have just purchased a new microwave oven. Smaller than my previous one which served me well for several years, but same maker though Daewood. Trouble is the new oven rattles like hell or to be more precise the metal case cover rattles like hell. Probably because it is ever so tinyishly? to large for the oven-probably talking milimetres! I could return it I suppose but that would leave me without a microwave oven for a while. So the solution that I use to curb the rattles is to place a can of beans, or soup, or whatever can, on top of the case when it's being used. Not silent solution since they always make some noise but eliminates the rattle.

Hi.. We recently moved house and after unpacking our LG it started making funny rattling noises. looked inside and the Grill in the top was loose. one glass tube above it broke. Can I have this replaced?...


You are quite right. The element will probably earth to the chassis and take out your mains power trip not to mention the glass fragments that may fall inside the oven.
Changing the element is straight forward. They come as a pair of glass tubes and after a bit of bending on the top of the case to release the clips fit easily.
Hope that helps.

Making a sound (I think from the fan) when operating


If it is only when he exhaust fan is on, something is in the fan. Remove the grill and investigate. If it is from the Magnatron fan you will have to remove the front panel.

Rattling coming from top grill on Kitchenaid microwave


the gril at the top (above the door) usually comes off with a couple of screws or just pulls off .. on some you have to take the cabinet apart ..... inside you might find a flat filter put in at a slant .. its often a grease and smell filter that contains activated charcoal .. when it gets clogged then it can rattle around as air tries to get around it .. you can replace it or just leave it out ..

GE Profile microwave remove top grill


1. Unplug power.
2. Remove two screws holding grille, either on top of the front edge of the outer case or in the grille itself.
3. The grille should lift right out. In not, you may need to pull it to the left about 1/4".

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Whirlpool MH1170XST 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave when I put the fan on it makes a terrible rattling noise in hight spped, not so much in medium and not at all in low.


Chances are the blades are loose on the shaft or the bearings may be getting dry.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Constant rattling noise during operation


possibly the "stirrer" motor - this is in the top and turns a metal reflecting ring to disperse the microwaves around the oven more evenly. About $70 on GE site for my oven.
