The buzzing sound can be coming from the magnetron. There may be an insect which has gained access and is being nuked. Or the magnetron may need to be replaced. Not an expensive repair.

My microwave no longer heats anything and also makes a really loud buzzing sound when i attempt to use it.


The problem is most likely caused by a defective magnetron that "heats the food" is loading down the high voltage transformer causing it to make a loud buzzing sound. The cost to repair (depending on make and model) will probably approach the cost of a new microwave oven when you factor parts and labor.

There is power but it is not heating anything and after about 10 seconds it makes a very loud noise.


If it's making a loud buzzing like sound it's the component that sends waves through the microwave. This piece is about $120 plus they charge about $65+ to install it. Also some charge the diagnostic fee of about $75. Either way, once a microwave goes out it's pretty much useless to repair one unless you have put a lot of money into it. We had ours to do the exact thing you describe and it was cheaper to buy another and me install it basically because I was getting another 2 year warranty as to the other had run out.

Whirlpool microwave makes loud buzzing noise


When your microwave oven won't cook your food, and, you hear a loud buzzing sound, it’s normally caused by a faulty (a) diode (b) high-voltage capacitor (b) magnetron.
The diode would be the most likely culprit of the three components. It’s also by far the cheapest!

Microwave Buzzing When Not in Use


Are you using a 3 pronged outlet and is it grounded? If you have a 2 holed outlet and are using a ground eliminator adapter, try turning the plug around to reverse the polarity. If this helps, then it would be advisable to have an electrician to ground your oven.

Mwave made loud buzzing noise then didn't heat up anymore


When there's a loud buzz like that, it does not heat, and does not blow the fuse, it is usually a defective magnetron. Did it sound something like someone making a "gurgling" sound into a coffee cup? I think this has a a one-year warranty, with n five-year warranty covering the magnetron.
