If it is a loud buzzing noise it is either the diode or magnetron. Working with the high voltage of a Microwave oven I would never recommend anyone other than a trained professional to attempt this repair.

My kenmore over stove microwave oven is now LOUD and not heating when on. What's up with that?


The problem is in the magnetron or the inverter board, either part will be costly.

My microwave (six years old, Sharp brand, Carousel microwave oven) was recently cooking something when suddenly there was a loud popping noise. It still rotates, the light still works, and it appears to be...


There are two likely sources; either a high voltage capacitor or the diode that feeds it. These are the components that produce high voltage for the magnetron. The latter can fail too but they have become very reliable. The magnetron circuit and the controls don't share much, that is why the rest of the oven still seems OK.
You may have trouble getting these parts unless you have a surviving service shop that stills repairs these appliances. Unfortunately, the Chinese have made most service techs obsolete and the shops along with them.

Mircowave runs but doesn't heat and it has a load hum.


You may need a new microwave..however, the diode may be defective or the magnatron tube may need replacing,,The magnatron tube is only warranted for 5 years so it may be used up as the model is (10years)fairly old.

Makes loud hum and faint smell when turned on


It sounds like your magnetron failing.

If a fuse were blown, it would be totally dead with no lights, no display, etc.

Keeping it out of the landfill a while longer by getting it fixed is always an option.

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.
