Question about Viking Microwave Ovens
ALL FUNCTIONS PERFORM WELL..WAS TOLD NOISE WAS COMING FROM MAGNETRON SO I REPLACED BUT NOISE (HUM) STILL THERE IN ALL FUNCTIONS. IS THIS A NOISE FILTER PROBLEM???
The noise filter is to block electrical noise, not auditory noise. "Noise" in electronics means any unwanted or unintended electrical signal.
The purpose of the noise filter is to help prevent any electrical noise generated in the wiring of the microwave from getting into your house wiring, which could cause interference with or disruption of other devices.
If your microwave is making auditory noise, then it may be a loose cover or panel, a rubber bumper fell off the high voltage transformer, or one of the components is failing.
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 magnetron can be bad without that sound.
If either of those two were bad, it would not cook.
