I called a technician out today. Seems like the problem is the circuit board. It wasn't working properly and the sound is the fan. The fan is supposed to turn on when the microwave is in use and off when it is not. In this case, the fan continued even when the microwave was not in operation. A new circuit board has been ordered and will replace the old one when it arrives. For now, I can still use the microwave, but I have to unplug it everytime I finish heating something up. A little inconvenient, but at least it'll still heat my food up in the meantime.
Sounds like you haven’t correctly centered the ring assembly under your glass platter. Remove the glass platter, now place the plastic ring with tiny wheels in the center and move it around by hand. You will be able to tell instantly if it’s centered correctly. Now place the platter on the center hub gear. To replace the coating on the microwave glass visit these web sites. www.partselect.com or www.applianceaid.com and enter your model number then scroll down to your part. Click to enlarge and you will be able to view the entire diagram for exact assembly. If you found any of these suggestions helpful, please rate my solution. D. Lange
Is it a rhythmic thumping, or intermittent, or one thump when it first starts?
If it's rhythmic, it may be a failing turntable motor or stirrer.
If it's a thump just when you hit Start or when the magnetron turns on at the beginning of the cook cycle, it may just be a common noise that they sometimes make due to the magnetic field produced by the high voltage transformer.
Please write back with more details if you need further help.

If the turntable tray is positioned and seated properly, it is probably a failing turntable motor.
