Hi, this will happen when the motor become unstable. unfortunately, it isn't a failed component and, the motor will continue to operate in this situation with no defects. its just poor ,manufacturing within the motor design. you can purchase another motor and it will kill the hum.

How to fix loud hum and no heating in Sharp model R-308KW?


Hi,
There could be a variety of reasons why this happens, but the likeliest
reason is the secondary interlock or monitor switch is broken. These are micro switches that tell the microwave that the door is closed. If this switch is broken, then the microwave thinks the door is still open and the carousel table won't turn, and the oven will not heat up.
I replaced an interlock switch last Saturday. The switch was $7.00 and took me an hour.
Ask your local repair person to test the interlock and monitor switches first, then go from there.
Good luck,
Hank

My microwave makes a loud humming noise when it is turned on.


May as well use the microwave as is until it terminates naturally. All microwave ovens buzz, that nothing unusual, but although you can replace a Magnetron, the cost is unusually high. By the time you take the oven down, open the case and fuss around, perhaps not making things any better; the fact is; a new replacement with a warranty is just over $100. Why bother?

My microwave makes a loud humming noise when it is turned on. What do I need to replace?


Good possibility your start capacitor is leaking. When it goes completely it will blow fuse or circuit breaker causing a dead condition. You can get and replace this yourself but be careful to discharge the capacitor with a set of test leads across the terminals. This part can hold dangerous voltage! Of course, unplug the unit first. The magnetron is expensive if you can even get one. For the cost of most new units, this may be too much unless it’s a over the stove model.

My microwave made a loud "pop"and now hums loudly


Since the microwave is humming, that tells me that the diode is bad and needs to be replaced.
