SOURCE: Microwave makes a loud noise while using.

After you turn it on, it's a loud noise like it's coming from the fan, but other then that it works wonderfully.

SOURCE: Microwave makes loud noise and does not heat. Smell of light burning

Chances are you have a bad magnetron.

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: Microwave won't heat food.

My Whirlpool microwave, over the stove, stopped working when my son used it to heat his food and a heavy sound came out, like something exploded in it. When I check it, there was nothing broke. Everything works fine except that it does not heat. I will appreciate any help

SOURCE: Microwave not heating food and is making loud noise.

You have burned out the magnatron (heating element) which is common on GE microwaves. most service companies will charge about 200-250 to replace it

How do I get the heat to work?


Hi Marc, there is no 'heat' per say with microwave ovens as one would find in a convection oven. Microwave ovens operate by generating electromagnetic fields (within the microwave band) that causes water molecules in the food item to vibrate/rotate creating friction/heat - within the food item as opposed to the surrounding space (this would be convection)

No Heat


The microwave sends out a strong radio frequency burst that vibrates the water molecules in your food and causes them to heat through friction.
No heat means no rays..means a new microwave! Cheaper than fixing..go to Craigs list

Everything appears to work. but the food does not heat up


The lack of heat would mean a failure in the magnetron circuit. It is the part that generates microwaves that heats the food. If it is making a loud buzzing noise when you operate the oven, it usually means that the magnetron has failed. It can cost as much as a new oven to repair, so it not worth fixing.

Platter spin, Vent Works, when using the microwave


check the high voltage diode inside the unit,its connected to one leg of the high voltage capacitor and the other side to the metal shell of the unit,if this opens you don't get the high D.C. voltage necessary to operate the magnetron,be careful,the capacitor can store up to 2100 v.a.c.so discharge it first to be safe

The microwave runs but doesn't cook the food. It made sort of vibrating noise and stopped heating. Everything else seems to be working.

Kenmore microwave


Since it's under warranty, they will replace or repair it at their choice, and if they replace it, it will be the same model or a "like model".

I'd ask them about it.
