Microwave won't start but rattles when close door.


It is possible you have one or more door switches that are bad and need replacement.

When you press start the microwave starts with a low hum and sounds like a bearing or fan is vibrating, micrwave still heats up and works just runs rough. Bruce


Ther is a loose peace of metal in the magnetron, it is not a big worry, it's just noisy, i have a noisy microwave and it is working fine for 10 years now, if you use the defrosting mode you should hear the noise (on and off) because in the defrost mode the magnetron energises on and off, it could be the cabinet vibrating as well look for loose peaces of metal

Good luck!

Suggest you pull the plug out, remove outer cover and place a cup of water into the micro. Set power to minimum then switch on and take note if the fan works or not. If not, switch off immediately and have it replaced(magnatron will burn out if left to run without fan.)

It may be that the internal cooling fan is not working or the filters or air duct may be clogged, but it may also be a "noisy" magnetron.

First, check the filters. Then determine if the internal cooling fan is coming on.

I do not mean the hood vent exhaust fan which you can turn on and off manually.

I'm instead talking about the internal fan which comes on automatically whenever you microwave.

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

If that is working, and you have good air flow, then see this FixYa solution.

Constant rattling noise during operation


possibly the "stirrer" motor - this is in the top and turns a metal reflecting ring to disperse the microwaves around the oven more evenly. About $70 on GE site for my oven.

Rattle sound


It's probably a loose stirrer fan or possibly a failing stirrer motor. Both are located above the plastic stirrer cover in the top of the cooking cavity.

If you or someone you know decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

Weird rattling sounds


If it's less than a year old, it should be under warranty, and I wouldn't open it. I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer. You can find one here:

http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/vServiceLocator?storeId=15001

It may be a failing turntable motor, fan motor, but it really merits close inspection.

This is an inverter-based model, and due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

If you need your owner's manual, you can download it here:

XL1800 still works fine but makes a lot of noise while on.


It may be the stirrer in the ceiling area.
