Assuming nothing's loose (such as from past repair attempt) then it may be the magnetron failing.
Your best bet is to keep using but (as always) do not leave it unattended while it's running.
Then if things get worse in some way, that would be a harder failure that can be assessed more easily.
If you are close to the end of the warranty period (1 year parts & labor or 9-year magnetron, e.g.) I would not wait past then.

Hi,It is most likely the magnetron and diode that has to be replaced. This job should be done by a tech, High voltage. Magnetron's normally have a five year warranty, check your owners manual.
