Question about GE JVM1870 Microwave Oven
Did it perhaps sound like someone gargling or growling into a coffee cup?

If you see flashing or arcing (sometimes more visible in a dark room) then there may be grease or food debris on or behind the plastic waveguide cover. It would need to be cleaned or replaced if it were burned.
