    I have the same problem on a Hotpoint Space Maker Plus. I twisted the center turning knob a bit and it has stopped (for now).

    Lubrication is not recommended except in extreme cases.

    Where does the noise seem to be coming form?

    The turntable system?

    The stirrer (if equipped)?

    Please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

Making odd screeching noise,thought it might be the ac motor for turn table ,but it looks and sounds good because i took it out and hooked it up to ac power.

The loud sounds are always the sound of the magnetron failing. It may actually be caused by the capacitive reactance of the large capacitor drying up.

No! this not normal and should be checked out right away, the problem could be in the high voltage transformer being loaded down by the magnetron, or possibly the turn table motor. The warranty must still be in place and I encourage you to take at vantage of it.

Makes a loud buzzing noise and does not get hot

Have seen this many times.

Sounds like a bad CAP since a bad diode would blow the fuse and a bad mag would likely do the same thing.

Since yours is making the loud 60hz buzz you need to replace the capacator that will likely fix the problem. A $10 fix

Loud noise coming from turn table

I have the same problem my microwave is a kenmore this is the second one I've had and they both did it I solved the problem by re-seating the turn table however if you are skilled at taking things apart you can put a few drops of small motor lubricant on the spline it worked for me. good luck!

Microwave makes a loud noise while using.

Could you describe the noise?

It may be a noisy fan motor or a failing magnetron or high-voltage transformer.
