Question about Goldstar MA-790W Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave oven is noisy during use

When running the Goldstar MA-790W microwave oven, it now makes a "groaning" sound. Removing the glass platter from the turntable seems to help. What can be done to fix this?

My microwave onen is not heating anything

I would suggest that the overheat stat on the magnetron has blown. If you are happy it's a simple thing to do but just make sure you disconnect from the mains before removing the cover and make sure that the High voltage capacitor is discharged. If you are not sure a qualified service tech will be able to fix this for you at little cost.

Hope this helps

Microwave will no longer heat. Model #MA-1000W

So we can help you, please post a NEW question, and please include your model number MA-1000Was well as the answers to these questions:

When you try to microwave are the inside light, internal cooling fan and turntable all working?

Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.
