SOURCE: I have a emerson microwave that has stopping

Emerson may be able to tell you which part has failed but you may have to have the unit looked at be a small appliance repair person. Send Emerson an email to internet@emersonradio.com with your model number and the problem you're having. If the unit is out of warranty, it may be cheaper to replace the microwave depending on what you paid for it. Keep in mind that the labor on any repair will be a minimum of $50 if you have to take it someone's shop, and that doesn't include the price of the part. Any part needed would be purchased from Fox International who's the part distributor for Emerson. They wouldn't know which part you need, however, because they're just a large parts store. Below is the link for Emerson's website.

Mince is a Gallery over the stove unit. It has started making a growling noise. I stopped using it immediately. Is it really worth getting it looked at?


C Purdes,
It depends on how old the unit is. Most other technicians and sales people that I trust have told me that the average life span of a microwave is only 7 to 10 years. The growling noise can be a couple of different problems and either one of them can get somewhat expensive, especially since it is an over the range unit because a lot of times you have to un-mount the microwave to be able to get to some of the internal parts and that adds labor time to the bill if you are having a repairman come look at it. Hope this helps!

Speed queen noise when on spin

  1. MagnetronIf your microwave is emanating high pitched or growling noises during operation, the magnetron could be going bad. Normally a nearly silent part, the magnetron uses high voltage and induces the frequency required to cook food. Although normally not a safety hazard to operate, this is a sign that the magnetron is failing and will need to be replaced as soon as possible.
  2. Exhaust fan motorIf your microwave is making a very loud humming noise during operation, it could possibly be the exhaust fan motor. If defective the part will need to be replaced to silence the appliance once more.
  3. Stirrer motorAnother leading cause of a noisy microwave is an expired stirrer motor. With use this part becomes worn and makes a loud grinding noise, which is usually a leading indicator that the part needs to be replaced. The stirrer is a metal blade that is slowly turned by the motor. This action disperses the microwave energy in a random pattern, which heats the food evenly. If the stirrer motor is determined to be nearing expiration, it should be replaced to halt the grinding noise.
  4. Turntable motorA very common cause for a noisy microwave is a worn out turntable motor. This is a relatively easy repair and will put an end to the noise once replaced.

I have a JES1142 which I purchased only one month ago. The turning plate rotates both clockwise and counter clockwise. When it rotates counterclockwise it makes a grinding sound. Why does it rotate bot...


It's normal for the motor to turn both ways, that's because of how the motor is made. As for the grinding noise, there's no reason the motor itself would make more noise turning one direction than in the other. The noise might be coming from the roller ring under the glass turntable. One of its wheels might be binding when it tries to turn counterclockwise.

Here's a test. Take the glass tray and roller ring out of the oven. Put a microwave-safe container with a cup or so of water in the oven and start it. Stop the oven and start it again, and the motor should turn the other way. If not, repeat this until you've seen the plastic coupling turn both directions. Note whether you still hear the noise as the motor turns each way. If you do, then there is something wrong with the motor and it should be replaced. If not, the noise is coming from the roller.

In either case, if the oven is truly only a month old it's still under warranty. Since you are concerned about the noise and are worried that the oven is defective, contact the store where you purchased it and see if they will exchange it or take it in for service. If the store can't help you, refer to the owner's manual for the service procedure to follow.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

Started making lud growling noise


growling noises??? hmmm? well if it starts to bark at you,,, feed it?
this sounds like the old problem,,, its about to pop its socks,,, or drop dead on you,, its clearly an inside job, there is most likely a leek in the capacitor, most comon, realy not worth repearing it, and please dont go getting inside it yourself,,,,you cant fix it,,,but you could easly kill yourself,,, that capacitor holds 1000,s of volts,,, trust me on this!!!!
it could easly kill you in one hit!!! just look at what a stun gun can do??
and thats only a small capacitor, whats inside your microwave is its very big brother! so if its growling at you, its about to go bang!
