KEMC307KSS Microwave High pitched noise on and off during heating

When I first got my microwave, it was nice and quiet. Now, anytime I cook anything it has a high pitched sound as if the microwave was revving up. This, I believe, used to only happen when it was defrosting an item. Now it happens all the time. I had a technician in here and he didnt want to dig through the microwave because it is still working. I want it to keep working, but would prefer it go back to its old, quiet ways.

Thanks for any help!

Microwave work but will not heat

If will does not heat or boil water, then your microwave is defective even if it appears to turn on.

If you do not hear the 'usual' humming noise that the microwave normally makes when heating, then the Magnetron is most probably defective: if the unit is out of warranty, it will not be worth replacing as it is quite expensive.

Hope it helps!

Why does food get hard after cooking or reheating in a microwave

It's basically a loss of moisture during the cooking process, to avoid this in a standard oven cook on a lower temp for longer and cover with the microwave, drop the power setting and always reheat or cook with the food cover with a microwave safe cling wrap or microwave specific cookware with lids.
Hope this helps.

Pleace HELP!!! How do I set the clock on my Russell Hobbs RHM1712 microwave?


You can set the timer on a range slow cooker to automatically switch to a warming setting when you estimate foods will finish cooking. The programmable features allow you to leave food stewing at home while you are out of the house, freeing up your day.

Set the timer on a range slow cooker to let the kitchen appliance do all the work, and come home to a fully cooked meal.

Fill the insert of the range slow cooker with food and cover it with the lid. At least a quarter of the insert should be filled with liquid to keep the environment moist during long cooking times.

Press the "On/Off" button on the left side of the electronic control panel in the front of the appliance. This will turn on the slow cooker to the low heat "Warm" setting.

Press the "Cook Time" button on the right side of the electronic control panel to add hours to the timer which will show a total time in hours with a red digital display. Continue to press the button until the display indicates the desired cook time in one-hour increments up to 10 hours.
The cooker will automatically adjust the temperature setting based on the amount of time you programmed on the timer. Cooking times of six hours or less automatically start on "High" heat and times of seven hours or more will start on "Low" heat.
A small indicator light will come on below the word to tell you the cooking temperature.

thank and thanks for using fixya.

Sorry, I have the same oven and the same complaint. The manual doesn't indicate anything. BTW- the service manual is inside the oven frame, between oven "lining" and the outside sheet metal.

Microwave will turn on but not heat

Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.

If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).
