Question about Microwave Ovens
The microwave is several years old, used several times per week. All of a sudden there is a "grating" sound.
I have a GE space maker the model number is JVM1860.
Same grinding sound when truntable is turning. Stops when you turn turntable off.
Can this be fixed by a layman?

It might be better to post this in the GE section, but I'll be happy to answer it here, too.
I would suspect a bad magnetron or high-voltage transformer, but it may be the turntable motor or an arcing stirrer.
If you can post back with the model number and a bit more detail on when and how it happens, we may be able to help you better.
