That's usually a bad magnetron. This one has a 5-year warranty on the magnetron, so you should only have to pay for labor to get it replaced. I would call Maytag at 800-688-1120.

Microwave makes sound like something moving inside


follow this steps and use the VOM , and fix it. God bless you

  1. MagnetronIf your microwave is emanating high pitched or growling noises during operation, the magnetron could be going bad. Normally a nearly silent part, the magnetron uses high voltage and induces the frequency required to cook food. Although normally not a safety hazard to operate, this is a sign that the magnetron is failing and will need to be replaced as soon as possible.
  2. Exhaust fan motorIf your microwave is making a very loud humming noise during operation, it could possibly be the exhaust fan motor. If defective the part will need to be replaced to silence the appliance once more.
  3. Stirrer motorAnother leading cause of a noisy microwave is an expired stirrer motor. With use this part becomes worn and makes a loud grinding noise, which is usually a leading indicator that the part needs to be replaced. The stirrer is a metal blade that is slowly turned by the motor. This action disperses the microwave energy in a random pattern, which heats the food evenly. If the stirrer motor is determined to be nearing expiration, it should be replaced to halt the grinding noise.
  4. Turntable motorA very common cause for a noisy microwave is a worn out turntable motor. This is a relatively easy repair and will put an end to the noise once replaced.

How do I get rid of the noise?


Hello, Sarkis -

I found 4 descriptions of what may be causing the noise when you operate your microwave oven. See the information on all 4 possible causes here:
https://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Microwave/78-88--/Tappan-Microwave-is-loud-or-noisy

Note: Safety advice I have read regarding microwave oven repair is to have a microwave oven repaired only by an authorized repair technician. It is not do-it-yourself work.

Any repair might not be worth the cost compared to purchasing a new replacement. A microwave repair technician authorized to work on Tappan microwave ovens will be able to evaluate what is causing the loud noise and give you an estimate of the repair costs.

Note: If you find you need to replace your microwave oven, please be sure the old microwave oven is sent to electronics recycling.

Best wishes.

Microwave does not heat. several weeks ago our daughter put an aluminum can in the microwave. it has been working fine but has recently quit. could this be as a result of putting the aluminum can in the mw...


more that likley it burnt out the magnatron
(the bit that heats the food up) its a big radio stashion realy, microwaves are radio waves and bounce off things like tins but they get bounced back at the magnatron and it over heats it till it burns out, the true word is "it ages it" but at the end of the day it just dont work no more,,,to buy a magnatron is not cheap and trying to fit one yourself is likely to kill you first
as there will be 1000's of volts still kicking about inside your microwave in the capacitor witch works just like a police stun gun, however it dont just stun you it could well kill you,, not smart to tuch this bit huh? its far safer to just dump the old one and buy a nice new one,,,but keep the little one's off it this time
im told they take 20 mins per pound to cook them?
i do like children,but iv never eat a hole one yet!

Microwave does not heat/cook


hi

power spikes are very damaging to a microwaves internal parts, it sounds like your transformer and/or magnetron are blown. if the unit is out of warranty I would recommend calling a repairman or getting a new microwave (the transformer & magnetron are expensive and dangerous to work on) also get a small single plug surge protector for the new one.
