Question about Viking VMOS200 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Viking oven - loud vent fan noise; are new models better?

Our Viking Professional single 30 inch electric oven model VESO 105, made around 2001, has annoying, loud cooling fan noise. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Found a fix?

I'm told the newer Viking Professional ovens use squirrel cage type fans that are said to be quieter than my older model which uses traditional fans with four blades. Does anyone know if the newer Viking ovens do in fact have quiet fans?

Thanks so much any replies; it's hard to find local people with Viking ovens to compare notes.

Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck somewhere in the cavity of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover (also called a spatter shield) is usually about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.

It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

If the metal of the oven wall is burned or chipped, the area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

If the cavity metal of the oven is cracked or split, you can use a small amount of steel-based epoxy such as JB-WELD to patch the crack or hole.

Once that dries thoroughly, you can sand it very smooth, then apply paint.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

SOURCE: Re. Viking DMOS200 1100 watts microwave oven does not turn on

I'm guessing that's a VMOS200?

If so, that's a rebranded Sharp R-530ES (as is the Dacor DMO2420S) and its secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or that switch's mount is bad.

See this file on door switches. If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

The Sharp R-530E service manual will aid you in disassembly and it is here.

Microwave fan/vent is excessively loud. How do I


Most vent hood fan motors don't need any maintenance. Over time, the motor and bearings may become stiff because of the constant heat, humidity, and grease to which they're subjected.

Also over time, the blower wheel gets greasy and dirty, which can slow down the fan or cause vibration. Remove the wheel and clean it with a degreaser. Then, if the fan is still slow or if it vibrates, you need








Microwave ovens heat by bombarding the food or liquid in the oven with super-high-frequency microwave sound energy. If there's no food or liquid in the oven to absorb the microwave energy, the energy can feed back to the microwave itself, which can permanently damage the internal microwave antenna (magnetron).

What could be the problem with my microwave?


It's the circulation motor but I'd buy a new one They're just not worth fixing when considering cost and service life. The source of the humm and the source of the sound are probably 2 different areas. Good luck.

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.

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.

If the microwave is loud or noisy the turntable motor might be worn out. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

LOUD BUZZING NOISE AND THE ANSWER I RECEIVED WAS FOR A DIFFERENT MODEL. CAN I FIX IT MYSELF?


If the loud buzzing noise is present when cooking food, the magnetron is the likely cause, some models are louder than others. But if the buzzing noise is there without the microwave running it should be checked. No! this something that should be checked by a professional for safety.

That's typically normal operation. The microwave has a thermostat which turns on the hood vent exhaust fan at a certain temperature to protect the controller.

Your owner's manual will cover vent fan operation.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

If - above and beyond this - the fan has a problem, that could make it excessively loud. Some are just loud though, it's hard to judge without actually hearing it.

You can contact Whirlpool customer service with your model number via that link above and ask them about the loudness. They may be able to tell by listening over the phone if it's abnormally loud.

Microwave making loud noise behind control pad and won't heat


Sounds like the magnatron (the bit that creates microwaves) could be goosed. Remove outer cover ( Isolate from the electric supply then remove screws at bottom on the sides).

Find big lump that says on magnatron with model nos etc on, any good electrical supply shop ( Maplins etc) should stock new one.

It is easy to change. It took me about half an hour having never done one before.

Buyer beware the price of the parts could be in excess of a new microwave.

Shop around

New microwave; loud fan when heating items


Since you say it's new, it should be under warranty. I would call GE (see your owner's manual) to get a local authorized service center. Then while you're on the phone with the service center, you can start it up and hold the phone close to it to demonstrate to the technician how loud it is. They should be able to tell you if it will be covered under warranty so you get it fixed free.
