SOURCE: Panasonic microwave buzzing noise

Yes, this is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode.

It is usually located behind the high voltage transformer and it attaches to the magnetron and to the chassis.

For ciritical safety links how to test the diode, see: http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html

faulty relay or solder joint on the power module, but a bad door switch is most common.

SOURCE: Microwave GE Model #JE1640WB - Makes noise when

Magnetron is done. This part heats the food. GE microwaves tend to have them stop working quite frequently. They basically make up the majority of the cost of the microwave, so instead of replacing the magnetron, you would be better off getting a new microwave.

SOURCE: ge microwave jvm160wj01 was working and suddenly

Sounds like the magnetron just shorted out. Its the part the generates the microwaves that heat the food. Buzzing sounds are a symptom of a shorted mag. Usually not worth fixing since the magnetron costs almost as much as a new oven. Sorry.

GE microwave has power, does heat and no buzzing noise


Likely one of the microswitch door interlocks is bad. Happens to many microwave ovens.

LOUD BUZZING NOISE AND THE ANSWER I RECEIVED WAS FOR A DIFFERENT MODEL. CAN I FIX IT MYSELF?


If the loud buzzing noise is present when cooking food, the magnetron is the likely cause, some models are louder than others. But if the buzzing noise is there without the microwave running it should be checked. No! this something that should be checked by a professional for safety.

You should keep it unplugged until it's fixed. If it's cooking while it should be off, that can damage the oven or even start a fire.

It's either a failed door switch or door switch mount, or a bad electrolytic capacitor on the control board, which we can repair for $39.95.

If you're hearing a fan or motor running, I'd suspect the switch. See this file for help.

If it's a buzz (like a power line buzz) then I'd suspect the board capacitor.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for more help.

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

I have a GE counter top microwave oven. When the oven starts cooking (the magnetron turns on) the oven makes a harsh buzzing noise. What is wrong and what should be done?
