My Frigidaire Electrolux microwave oven Model # FMV145BC1 will still run but lights up at the top and makes a terrible noise. We stop it everytime it does this. For a while it would only do it ocassionaly and we could still run the microwave. Now it does it within seconds every time we turn it on. So we stop it immediately.

I advise do not use this machine as you could have a fire sooner or later. Get a new one if this will cost too much to repair.

Most likely the power capacitor is shorted.If you know someone that is just alittle familiar with electronics, they will know what to look for.The part will look like a somewhat long large silver 9v battery with two metal leads.Normally toward the back of the microwave and below the cooling fan.With a volt-ohm meter this capacitor can be checked.on the meter if you get a reading ,its bad, if you get no reading(open), its most likely good.Ninety percent of the time it will be bad.If it is, just replace with the same value and your ready to go.

hello Frank. Sorry to tell you that the magnetron is going bad and making that terrible noise. Since the inside of a microwave, even unplugged has up to 2000 residual and deadly volts of electricity I recommend either calling a pro or replacing the unit.

SOURCE: My Microwave oven makes a loud buzzing noise and

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 on the right side of the cavity and is about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.

In some models it is a larger stirrer cover type made of thicker plastic in the ceiling of the oven.

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

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

Your owner's manual may show you how to remove the cover.

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for Electrolux and Frigidaire here.

Otherwise, you can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

The main microwave source element has degraded. The cost to repair is more than the cost of a new replacement oven.
For $125 and up, get a whole new Oven.

I don't know how to replace the charcoal filter on my Frigidaire FMV157GC microwave. There's also food between the grate and the glass on the microwave door. Help !


This is billed as the Use & Care Manual for the Frigidaire FMV156DC Microwave Oven:

ftp://ftp.electrolux-na.com/ProdInfo_PDF/Springfield/316495004en.pdf

Not sure it is the correct one but you will find instruction for cleaning the exhaust filters on page 19.

Below is the Use & Care Manual for a model direct from the Frigidaire site:

http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Springfield/316495057en.pdf

This is more helpful as on page 20 it includes illustrated instructions for removing the charcoal filter to change the oven light. Disconnect from power, remove the ventilation grate at the top to access the charcoal filter, slide back and lift to remove. With the grate removed carry out any required cleaning.

My frigidaire microwave does not go on


To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, and very detailed symptoms, answering these questions:

- Is it dead? (meaning there is no display, no light when you open the door, and no beeps when you press a key)

- Does it run but no heat? (meaning the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable all work)

- Does it make any unusual noise?

- Is it louder or quieter than normal?

Are you talking about the light inside the microwave? The front vent I think will allow you to get to the bulb. Should be a couple of small scrrews holding the vent cover on, remove them take vent off. Start it up again and see if the light bulb wiring or socket is arcing
