Hmm .. if it is the turntable that is making the noise, then remove the plate and the guide ring. Wash all the parts, and the track that the guide ring sits in and then all back together ..

Coleman EB15A - Buzzing noise from transformer area, no heat or fan


see this causes and proceed. God bless you
Magnetron If the microwave is loud or noisy only when cooking, the magnetron tube might be defective. The magnetron uses high voltage, high current DC power to generate the microwave frequency that cooks the food. Under normal circumstances the magnetron is nearly silent. However if it is damaged or nearly burned out it can begin emitting high pitched or growling noises. It's not normally dangerous to use a microwave oven when it makes these noises, but they are an indication that the magnetron is almost dead and will need to be replaced.

Exhaust Fan Motor If the microwave is loud when running the fan motor might be
Stirrer Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the stirrer motor might be worn out. The stirrer is a metal blade which slowly turns around, deflecting the microwave energy in a random pattern inside the microwave oven. As the motor nears the end of its useful life it begins to make grinding noises. The microwave will not heat food evenly without this stirrer, the motor should be replaced.

Turntable Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the turntable motor might be worn out. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

GE microwave TURNTABLE slow-erratic and noisy JVM 1860 SD 002


The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

In some cases, cleaning them helps. Lubrication is not recommended.

The turn table goes clockwise sometimes & counter clockwise sometimes.It also makes a groumbling noise.


The motor for the turntable in these ovens is bi-directional. This is normal.

As for the noise, it is very common that the main turntable wheel track-ring under it is dirty at its wheels, or its pin-pushings have some wear. It is also posssible that the main turntable motor has become noisy from use and age.

I have had microwave ovens make a grumbly sound when one of the cooling fans are going defective.

Turntable issues


As you say you are clueless about fixing anything, I suggest you take it to the service center and get it done. Replacing a electrical part has to be done properly, and fixing a turntable prob can be tricky.

Noisy turntable


I has this problem with a Sears unit. The repairman simply removed the glass tray, cleaned all the wheels and the 3 toothed driver wheel in the middle and it became quiet. He explained that if any buildup keeps the plate from properly seating on the gear, it gets very noisy.
