Most likely the motor will have to be replaced. This is probably a case of where buying a new popper is cheaper.

Magnetron


If the microwave is loud or noisy only when cooking, the magnetron tube might be defective. The magnetron uses high voltage, high current DC power to generate the microwave frequency that cooks the food. Under normal circumstances the magnetron is nearly silent. However if it is damaged or nearly burned out it can begin emitting high pitched or growling noises. It's not normally dangerous to use a microwave oven when it makes these noises, but they are an indication that the magnetron is almost dead and will need to be replaced.

Stirrer Motor


If the microwave is loud or noisy the stirrer motor might be worn out. The stirrer is a metal blade which slowly turns around, deflecting the microwave energy in a random pattern inside the microwave oven. As the motor nears the end of its useful life it begins to make grinding noises. The microwave will not heat food evenly without this stirrer, the motor should be replaced.

Help - the stirrer keeps sticking, the motor strains to turn it round but it won't go when the dough is in, its too heavy. The last loaf I made I had to take the dough out of the machine and kneed it...


Hi,
Take the bread pan out of the machine and run a kneading cycle. See if the motor is straining. If it is it could be a belt or the motor itself. If the motor runs nice and smooth and you can see the motor shaft spinning effortlessly, then it's the bread pan itself. See if you can spin the paddle easily when it is out of the machine. If not then it is the sealed bearing in the bread pan that is starting to fail and it's time for a new bread pan. Hank

My Whirlpool microwave model MH9181XMT started making a loud noise while running (it sounds like a wobbly fan) It continues to heat and run perfectly but with the noise. Any ideas?


Assuming you already ruled out the exhaust fan there are 2 stirrer motors, one for the turntable and one for the stirrer blades in the top. One of those could be bad. eric
