The door switch could be stuck in the closed/on position. The electronic circuits could be malfunctioning. When the door is open, I sure hope than the microwaves cooking are not "ON". That could result in a very dangerous situation for you.
It depends what was making the noise. a bad door switch could cause the turntable motor and the fan to fun. If is heating it may still be worth repairing. I would check the door switches. See if you notice any browning around the plastic insulators where the wires plug onto the switches. If so, you will need to replace bad switch and run new wires and connectors to the new switch too.
The grinding noise could be from the turntable motor, or the fan. Remove plate from oven and put a cup of cold water in, set for 30 seconds and run the microwave, if no grinding is detected it means the turntable motor is near end of life. If there is no change unplug microwave and remove top check the fan mounts tighten if loose, if straps are tight suspect the fan motor.
Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
The F9 error code indicates an inverter failure. If you continue to
receive the F9 error code after unplugging the unit for 5 minutes, the
control system assembly may need to be replaced.
Microwaves are not good do-it-yourself projects. Microwaves are
inherently dangerous to service. Internal capacitors can retain a
lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged. A
microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit
following any repair.

Many thanks to e3enigma above! I removed the synch motor under the turntable; all other microwave functions work fine and the grinding noise is gone, hooray! A trip to the appliance parts store tomorrow for a replacement synchronous motor and all should be well. Thanks again!
This sounds like the stirrer. If it sticks or stops, the microwaves can damage or destroy it.
You may have a bad stirrer or magnetron.
