GE JVM1650 Microwave Making Loud Noise

Hi. I've got a GE model JVM1650CB006 over-the-stove microwave which just started making a very loud grinding noise, perhaps associated with its turntable? At first, the noise stopped when I opened and closed the door, which would stop the microwave for a couple of seconds. A few days later, however, stopping and starting it no longer stopped the noise. The oven heats just fine, but man, oh man, the noise its making sounds awful. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Frank in Seattle

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.

Microwace noise coming from top and flashing


dont use the microwave until you retrieve what dropped inside when you removed the port. The grinding is most likely a foreign object that is hitting the moving parts of the microwave and causing sparking. It can catch fire

Microwave making loud grinding sound


Sounds like a bad magnetron. One test is to set it to run for 30 seconds on the lowest power level. As the microwave power turns off and on, the growling should cycle too.

GE over the range microwave making grinding noise


This sounds like the stirrer. If it sticks or stops, the microwaves can damage or destroy it. You may have a bad stirrer or magnetron. There is an important bulletin that covers these problems. To see if yours is covered, see: http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf If you need more help, please follow-up.
