Oven not working -makes a buzzing sound when turned OFF!

Oven does not heat up properly, then when I turned it off it makes an annoying buzzing sound. I turned mode to "self-clean" and buzzing stopped. This is weird. Oven only 3 years old.

You just need to adjust your door latch assm. Try putting a little oil on the latch and arm. The sound you hear is the solenoid trying to pull the latch arm all the way back to lock the door. Even though it is pulling the arm back and the door locks it may not be all the way back. A little lubrication will fix the problem.

Buzzing sound


Maybe the knob might be a bit rusty, or it's always like that. It's also a good idea to get people to check the knob.

The oven goes on, carousel and timer works, but no heat. The oven felt warm on sides at first. Unplugging it, waiting awhile, turning it on did not correct the problem.


The magnetron circuit has failed. If it makes a loud buzzing sound when you operate it, means that the magnetron has shorted out. The replacement cost for the magnetron is almost as much as a new oven, so it does not make sense to get it fixed. Sorry.

Everything works but "heating". Makes grinding


The loud buzzing sound with no heating, is symptom that the magnetron has failed in your oven. Magnetron replacement cost are almost as much as new oven, so it does not make financial sense to repair. 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 does not heat


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Microwave not heating properly is caused by a power relay going bad, cold solder joint on the board and/or magnetron (this is only if it makes a loud hum/buzz sound). Also the door hooks and the door-release button should be checked. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Works - but the sound has changed


Possibly, the "fault" was the buzzing in the first place! Buzzing is usually a cabinet vibration caused by magnetic fields from the "gubbins". If the buzzing should occur again, try pushing/ pulling/ poking the cabinet while the oven is running, you may find a position that causes the buzz to stop.
Another possibility is you previously had something else placed in close proximity to the oven.
If a rattling cabinet is the problem, either try to reposition something, or just ignore it!

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.
