Take it to an appliance repair centre for a proper diagnosis and quote
if parts are available it can be repaired but the cost is the determining factor

Microwave makes a loud buzzing noise


The buzzing sound could be from loose laminations on the high voltage transformer, or from loose mounting screws for the transformer. This requires investigation by a qualified technician as there are lethal voltages associated with the transformer. It could also be from a loose cover. First check that all the cover screws are tight.

GE spacemaker microwave all seems to be working but won't heat


It is the magnetron circuit that has failed. It the part that generates the microwaves that heat the food. If it is making a loud buzzing sound when you try heating something, then the magnetron is shorted out. The replacement cost for the magnetron is almost as much as an new oven, so it does not make sense to have it fixed. Sorry.

Microwave will not heat


If everything else works, like display, light, turntable, but does not heat, it probally the magentron circuit that failed. It the part that generates the microwaves that heat the food. When it fails, it makes a loud buzzing sound. If this is the case, it not worth fixing since the replacement magnetron cost as much as a new oven. Sorry.

Buzzing sound... Turntable stopped. food heats up but uneven. No microwave fan when heating.. no light inside expensive fix?? Unit is 10 years old


If the microwave oven is 10 years old then it is time to consider a new unit, by your description it is going into cascade failure where different parts have stopped working, the buzzing sound is the magnetron warning you, it is about to fail. The fans job is to keep the magnetron cool while it is running.

Ge over range microwave runs but doesnt heat


If it does not heat and makes a loud buzzing sound, it usually means that the magnetron has failed. It the part that generatest the microwaves that heat the food. Replacement costs for magnetrons is almost as much as a new oven, so it rarely makes sense to fix. Sorry.

Ge microwave jvm160wj01 was working and suddenly started buzzing, gave bad electric/burnt smell and buzzes. Still buzzes and does not seem to heat now.


Sounds like the magnetron just shorted out. Its the part the generates the microwaves that heat the food. Buzzing sounds are a symptom of a shorted mag. Usually not worth fixing since the magnetron costs almost as much as a new oven. Sorry.

Microwave makes loud buzzing sound when on and no heat


Have you tried putting a cup of water in it and cooking on a low power level? If it buzzes only when it is on the cook cycle, that would narrow it down. More detals might help us help you, including the model number.

Microwave Buzzing, Still Heats, but Turntable And Fan Not Working


This is not safe. If the fan is not running, the magnetron will quickly overheat and be destroyed. We answered this in more depth in the other place you asked it.
