Hello,

If you hear an unusual buzzing noise, the magnetron (the component that actually generates the microwaves) or other electronic module may be broken and never let the microwave oven heat unless it is replace and this is not easily fixed because you will need to disassemble the microwave oven to fix it ;i advice you contact a service technician to help replace the broken electronic module(magnetron).

Take care.

Micro wave will not heat up. there is no buzzing noise.


More than likely it's the magnetron and/or diode, chances are it may still be under warranty. Online owners manual states 5 year warranty on magnetron. Part only, service call and installation not included. Diode not covered. They require serial number, and will let you know if it's still under warranty. Installation appears to be simple, UNPLUG MICROWAVE THEN MAKE SURE YOU DISCHARGE CAPACITOR. INJURY OR POSSIBLE DEATH IF NOT DISCHARGED PROPERLY. Google how to install magnetron and discharge capacitor. It will save you approx $ 250 - 300 doing it yourself. Hope this helps. Be Safe

Frigidaire PLMV168K2 micro wave stopped heating food. Still has turntable and light functions. Seems to have more of a power load after initial start. The buzz is more intense than normal.


A loud buzz is a symptom of a shorted magnetron or high voltage diode. Would recommend that you take it to a qualified repair facility if you want it repaired, but if the magnetron has failed, the part costs can equal that of a new oven.

Hotpoint micro wave makes funny noise and doesn't heat up food


Check door switches ... particularly if you are guilty of opening the door while the oven is in operation (door safety switches are probably cooked ... no pun intended)

Let me know if you need more help

My micro wave will not heat products. All other systems are functional.


Do the inside light and turntable come on when you try to cook?

Is it making any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

Do you have the model number?

Buzzing Microwave


the buzzing is the magnatron tube juicing too thousands of volts before emmitting the micro-wave radiation to what your cooking that turns molecules 180 degrees around... guess that friction is what really heats it.
radar ovens is what they use to call em and even people would stand in front of big ones to warm up long ago...lol canibles will love that.
