I would say that from the noise and vibration that the fan motor is bad,
it will need a new fan motor

A microwave uses as far as I can remember some rays which penetrates anything that is inside it and accelerates particles and hence causes your food to warm up.Many of these appliances differentiate between each other and it's quite normal to have these vibrations..If it is more than normal then you would need to disassemble the whole unit and check every single components especially any rotating stuffs etc..Hope this helps and please get back to me if you have any questions.

It may be the magnetron, but generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

Maytag over range rattling and vibrating noise


Make sure you tighten all the attachment screws that may have loosened during long term usage. Make sure the fan is running properly and not causing undue vibrations. Use WD 40 on the fan.

Sharp Carousel Microwave Mdl 1875 for our RV is dead


>> We also tried plugging our toaster into the microwave plug outlet, and the toaster wouldn't work in that outlet, but worked just fine in a different outlet in the RV.

This means the outlet you plug your microwave into needs to be fixed in addition to fixing the oven. Breaker? Fuse?

>> I understand from another RV forum that microwave ovens for RVs have "special circuitry and cooling features" not found in regular countertop ovens for household use.

Not really in my experience. Any microwave supplied with clean AC power and proper venting space will be fine.

But I'd bet your microwave can be fixed affordably.

The main internal things which can result in this model being dead (no display, no light when you open the door, no beep when you press a pad on the keypad) would be the 20A fuse and the magnetron temperature fuse. There could also be bad connections on the noise filter board.

Also, sometimes a power surge can cause the power to be interrupted to the low voltage transformer on the board, and I regularly repair those boards. I can also write a technical statement to your insurance company or to an RV park as needed.

At my Web site, I have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

The relevant service manuals for this model are here and here.

You can order Sharp parts from Sears or Encompass.

Contact me directly if you need more help.

GE Microwave (JVM1860CD001) control board buzzes.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Magnetron If the microwave is loud or noisy only when cooking, the magnetron tube might be defective. The magnetron uses high voltage, high current DC power to generate the microwave frequency that cooks the food. Under normal circumstances the magnetron is nearly silent. However if it is damaged or nearly burned out it can begin emitting high pitched or growling noises. It's not normally dangerous to use a microwave oven when it makes these noises, but they are an indication that the magnetron is almost dead and will need to be replaced.
Exhaust Fan Motor If the microwave is loud when running the fan motor might be
Stirrer Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the stirrer motor might be worn out. The stirrer is a metal blade which slowly turns around, deflecting the microwave energy in a random pattern inside the microwave oven. As the motor nears the end of its useful life it begins to make grinding noises. The microwave will not heat food evenly without this stirrer, the motor should be replaced.
Turntable Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the turntable motor might be worn out. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

This is a Microwave GE Spacemaker over the range model JVM1428BHC01 The RangeHood functionality seems to have a constant air flow. It started to make a noise like an electric motor that rattles,...


this sounds more like a loose winding in the main coil to me,,if its humming? the noise is becouse steel core is vibrating,,,if this is so then the coil wont last very long,,,and it cant be fixed! all you can do is fit a new coil,,,,and thats not worth the cost!! go for a new unit,,,

Need a replacment microwave oven (black) for a Dometic DOTR12C. It is built in to the RV and has the light and vent screen at the bottom, over the stove. Dimensions H 16 1/2 W 22 Depth 16 5/8 Weight 48#....


Pretty easy to change.Maybe cash and carry would be a little cheaper, or even trying an appliance dealer to see if they can get the same thing. Perhaps contacting manufacturer of microwave directly will help. (www.dometicusa.com) There was some recalls on some of the models. Are you sure it's not just sitting in an opening above the range hood. Most are just 4 screws or so, and out they come from opening above that.

You need to get it looked at professionally. Faulty microwaves are not really the thing that you should be repairing at home. They can be lethal. Find a local repair shop and get a quote for repair.

It runs, makes a noise with vibration, but does not hear


    If you hear an unusual buzzing noise, the magnetron (the component that actually generates the microwaves) or other electronic module may be broken. This is not easily fixed; contact a service technician.
