GH5184XPB 3 microwave sounds strange when starting

It does this when you have not used the microwave for an hour or so. It sounds like a fan that starts slowly and then over about 4-5 seconds gets up to full speed.

Whirlpool gold GH5184XPB-4 Last used to cook potatoes. sensing then cooked. Now runs but does not cook. Any ideas? Joe


There are three reasons for this, a bad magnetron "common problem" or a high voltage diode and capacitor can be a factor. If the magnetron is at fault it is cheaper to replace the microwave oven.

When turned off after cooling for 5hr. The outside unit buzzers as if a motor is running. it has gone on for 3hr. if I turn the unit back on it works OK just the outside unit seems to keep going.the out...


Do you mean after cooking for 5 hours? If so, yes. This is normal behavior. The microwave is running an internal fan to cool the components inside of the microwave. The fact that it has done so for 3 hours is a bit strange, but I doubt there is any issue with the inverter. Watch for errors. Error F33 or F34 mean an excessive heat build up in the microwave. Errors F81, F82, F83 and F84 mean that there is an issue with power delivery, such as inverter failure. While F86, F87, F88 and F89 represent shorted contacts within the microwave's boards and power supply.


Hope this helps,

Strange rattle when microwaving


Chances are the blade assembly has come loose on the shaft of the internal cooling fan.

This can be solved with a couple of drops of super glue at the spot where the blade and shaft meet, then allow it to dry for several minutes.

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

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you'll see the cooling fan.

Please let us know what you find.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Strange sound - seems to cook too hot?


It sounds like either your inverter is producing too high a voltage, or your magnetron may be damaged, causing it to overcook. In either case, it definitely needs professional attention. There are very high voltages involved. Since it's out of warranty, the repair charges would likely run about $75-90 labor for in-home service (less if you carry it in) and about $40-75 for parts depending on which is bad. If you run into a technician who can repair the inverter instead of just swapping it, you might save a bit.
