The gril at the top (above the door) usually comes off with a couple of screws or just pulls off .. on some you have to take the cabinet apart ..... inside you might find a flat filter put in at a slant .. its often a grease and smell filter that contains activated charcoal .. when it gets clogged then it can rattle around as air tries to get around it .. you can replace it or just leave it out ..

Safe to use a microwave that is making a loud rattling sound?


It's not a good idea to continue to use it when it's making an unusual noise.
It may be arcing, which can lead to further failure or a fire, or it may be a defective stirrer or fan ,which can lead to uneven cooking or further failure.
$360 for a service call? Are you in Alaska or on Mars? That's insane. Maybe you can contact another servicer in your area?

Loud rattling when operating


it could be a bad fan or a bad stirrer inside the wave guide. I would suggest you get a qualified technician to come check it out.

Rattling, crackling type noise just started and is constant when microwave is running.


A couple of months ago my microwave started making crackling, rattling and grinding sounds everytime i used it and i thought it was going to break down. It turned out one of my children must have spillled or overflowed something with a clear liquid because the micro did not look dirty but there was a crunchy substance under the wheels of the turntable. Once i cleaned this up totally the noises all went away.

I have a ge above range spacemaker xl1800 it seems to work fine except their is a rattling noise when its running it sounds like a bad fan or something comeing loose it seems like its comeing from under...


The noise you are hearing is due to the fan. The fan is used to cool the magnetron during cooking, and because this fan is not working the magnetron is overheating and the thermal protector is opening, killing power to the unit. All you need to fix this is a new fan blade. The fan blade(look for part #80) is slipping on the motor shaft ( the noise you are hearing).

GE XL 1800

If the blade is broken then you can buy a new one from---

GE FAN BLADE

Please ask for further clarifications.

A Fixya rating would be appreciated if you find it useful.

Thanks

Rattling Fan Noise


If I had to bet, I would say the fan blade assembly is loose on the fan motor shaft.

If so, a spot of super glue where they meet will usually take care of that.

If that's not it, it should be investigated.

It is vital that the cooling fan runs properly, or the magnetron will be destroyed.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Strange rattle when microwaving


Chances are the blade assembly has come loose on the shaft of the internal cooling fan.

This can be solved with a couple of drops of super glue at the spot where the blade and shaft meet, then allow it to dry for several minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you'll see the cooling fan.

Please let us know what you find.

XL1800 still works fine but makes a lot of noise while on.


It may be the stirrer in the ceiling area.
