Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.
To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, your symptoms, as well as the answers to these 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.
