Question about Maytag MMV5000 Microwave Oven
Not sure what make it is, but it's 6+ yrs old.
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, there are only a couple of components that could produce a loud noise from the inside of a microwave oven:
The odor could be the component that produced the sound burning. As stated above, most likely a capacitor. Should this be the case, it would be bulging on top and would have spilled its die-electric materials around (brown paper), you can try component level repair (just replace with same specs) or replace the entire board.
With all said and if you would factor in cost of repair (especially if you are seeking the services of a qualified professional), downtime and the efforts to effect a repair, you may want to re-evaluate your options and considerf a replacement.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
