Question about Kenmore 60659 Microwave Oven
A very loud and pronounced vibration and noise at turn on. If left on for 15 seconds or more a burned odor is detected. The burned odor is that of an overheated transformer. As I remember from my TV repairing days.
Sounds like Magnetron MAY have shorted or an HV rectifier shorted.
Also there is a resonating cap for the current limiting trnansformer typically. That may have shorted.
Repair shop is in order.
