    We are having the same problem. It first happened last night when popping popcorn, loud buzzing noise, flashing from the top right hand side and smoke with a terrible smell. It has now happened again today when warming up food and it happens even when there is nothing in the microwave. We have a Danby DMW162W-OTR, microwave with oven hood. We have not yet contacted anyone to try to fix the problem, we were going to find a microwave repair shop and see if they can help us, but if you are able to help us it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Leticia

Some units have a silica plate covering the waveguide opening. If it get burn spots on it, it'll do that. Remove the plate and try the unit. If it's OK, go to your MW repair shop and order a new plate.

Remember... always cover your food...

Makes a really loud buzzing noise during operation


Unit uses a Magnetron and likely a power board called an inverter to run it. Someone would have to open the unit in a way where they might pinpoint where the sound is coming from and then take action--does not of course sound normal or good to me.

LOUD BUZZING NOISE AND THE ANSWER I RECEIVED WAS FOR A DIFFERENT MODEL. CAN I FIX IT MYSELF?


If the loud buzzing noise is present when cooking food, the magnetron is the likely cause, some models are louder than others. But if the buzzing noise is there without the microwave running it should be checked. No! this something that should be checked by a professional for safety.

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!

Makes a loud buzzing noise and does not get hot


Have seen this many times.

Sounds like a bad CAP since a bad diode would blow the fuse and a bad mag would likely do the same thing.

Since yours is making the loud 60hz buzz you need to replace the capacator that will likely fix the problem. A $10 fix

Kitchenaid builtin microwave buzzing


I would recommend changing the diodes as well. This will usually take care of the problem.

Viking Micro noise


The noise is probably from the high-voltage transformer. When it is overloaded, the excess magnetic field it produces vibrates its wire coils. Odd that it only happens for a brief time. It is either defective itself (in which case it may go a long time) or it is getting overloaded by the magnatron/capacitor/diode on its output (in which case it will get worse shortly)
Hope Ya Fix it

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.
