That sound usually means you either need to take it to the shop or get a replacement. Yhr buzzing sound is either the big tansformer found inside or the magnetron.

If you have any warrenty this is definitly covered by it. If you don't while it is repairable, the repair cost could exeed the cost of a new replacement. So if you take it to get fixed get an repair estimate before spending any money.

My microwave doesnt work


If you hear an unusual buzzing noise, the magnetron (the component that actually generates the microwaves) or other electronic module may be broken. This is not easily fixed; contact a service technician.

Its turns on and sounds like it is working but is not heating> any thoughts? thanks


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 hit "Start" to microwave, do the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable all come on?

Any unusual noise?

Is it louder or quieter than usual?

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here.

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.

If there's no unusual noise, it may just be a bad connection at the magnetron.
