Since FixYa is not currently
notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered, you will
need to post a NEW help request.
In your new post, please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit and your symptoms, as well as the answer to the following questions:
- When you try to microwave are the inside light, internal cooling fan and turntable all working?
- Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?
(A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.)
We have a sound clip here of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
