Whirlpool mh1160xsb over range that buzzes when cooking

Hello I have a whirlpool mh1160xsb over range microwave that has started buzzing right after it starts cooking. I've peered through the vents at the top while it's making the noise and it seems like its coming from what looks like a transformer. My question is can I fix this cheaply myself or do I just need to get another microwave? The warranty just ran out on this unit. Thank you.

It depends on if it is just a loose component that needs tightened up or if it has started failing. it will require some investigation and trial and error to resolve. I have had some success in resolving vibrations and some were real challenges. It is a matter of isolating the noise maker and seeing what can be done.

Occassionally (about 5% of the time) the microwave continues to cook and buzz after the timer has run out and the fan stops running.


sounds like the program bord is faulty,, when your finished cooking leave the door open a little that will save the microwave from trying to cook nothing?

Whirlpool microwave makes loud buzzing noise


When your microwave oven won't cook your food, and, you hear a loud buzzing sound, it’s normally caused by a faulty (a) diode (b) high-voltage capacitor (b) magnetron.
The diode would be the most likely culprit of the three components. It’s also by far the cheapest!

Microwave Buzzing When Not in Use


Are you using a 3 pronged outlet and is it grounded? If you have a 2 holed outlet and are using a ground eliminator adapter, try turning the plug around to reverse the polarity. If this helps, then it would be advisable to have an electrician to ground your oven.

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.
