Question about Microwave Ovens
I bought a used whirlpool microwave, When you turn it on, it makes a rubbing or thumping noise in the microwave fan... also the turntable will not turn ( we have hit the button to turn the turntable on and off). The whole thing is rather greasy. They must have really fried alot and it is over the oven model. It sounds like the fan (this is not the vent a hood fan) is rubbing the shroud around it, but i guess it could be a bad motor. The turntable just does not move. I can turn it with my hand, but i noticed once when i hit the turntable on/off while it was heating that the light and fan pulled down a little.. Thanks
Once i opened up the microwave, I found that some kind of capacitor or something (had two wires going to it) had fell down on top of the fan. I had to rig the plastic mounting bracket and re-attach it to a panel inside. That took care of the rubbing noise. It turned out that some one had unplugged the wire that powered the turntable. That took care of that. it seems to work fine now. Steve
