SOURCE: Vibrating noise when cooking

In order to try to set your mind at ease I will have to explain the Basics on how a Microwave Oven Functions.
When a Microwave Oven is set to COOK ...START. It cooks at 100%. There is no lowering of the heat as with a Range ( Cook Top) Control. So in order to do the other things such as DEFROST, WARM, or anything other than 100% COOK. A COOK ON- COOK OFF system was utilized. To DEFROST, the Microve COOKS at 100% for 30% of the TIME, then IDLES for 70% of the TIME. COOK ON 30% of the TIME, COOK OFF 70% of the TIME = DEFROST This is why you can hear the CYCLE. More power is required during the ON CYCLE, thus the lower vibration. The Vibration occurs when the High Voltage Transformer is turned ON ( COOK ON).
The VIBRATION seems to have got louder with age. This is somewhat normal as there is a vibration from the High Voltage Transformer present every time the Microwave is used. screws and other metal parts seem to get loose with this vibration. There is no solution, unless you can tighten EVERY screw, nut, and bolt in the unit.
Sorry!

SOURCE: does a microwave lose cooking

Yes. As the magnetron (The microwave generator) ages with use it becomes less efficient. As such it produces less powerful microwaves and loses penetrating power:::Spiceweasel.au

SOURCE: Whirlpool Talent Microwave The microwave starts

That is the magnetron faulty. The oven stops cooking, as the magnetron lose contact, when the magnetron restart working you hear that loud bang, and it restart radiating.

Replace the magnetron.

You find parts here or here.

SOURCE: Emerson microwave, #MW8119SB, push start button to start cooking

Replace the fuse with a ceramic fuse from Home depot! costs less than $3 and it will fix the problem. I had all the same problems as everyone else, you name it my microwave had it! you must remember replace it with a ceramic fuse! not a glass one. I know people say its the switchboard and all that nonsence but I promise you, the fuse plays a majoe roll in the microwave not working properly. Even though it doesnt look broken, a junky fuse can cause your appliance to do very strange things. I replaced mine 6 months ago and it works like its fresh out of the box.

I have a Hot point EM925RCW 900 watt micro wave in my RV. My preset cooking buttons, (popcorn, potato, pizza, nor time cook) will not work but the number cooking works. Syggestions


I would guess either the circuitry for part of the keypad is defective or prehaps more likely the unit has developed amnesia because either the supply to the programmed memory chip is broken or the chip has failed.
It really amounts to the same thing as almost all those components will be on a single board and the repair guy is unlikely to worry about what is wrong but will simply replace the board.

The question is how much is the luxury of presets worth to you and will a repair be significantly less than the cost of replacement?

Panasonic microwave


I would check the cooking instructions on the side of the pizzas packaging. If microwave cooking is not listed I would not recommend cooking it in a microwave as this could make the food unsafe to eat.

But if you're short of an oven I have found a guide on barbecuing a pizza:

Magic Chef MCD11E3W Just Dies While Cooking


There is an internal cooling fan. Sounds like your s has failed and its thermal cut out is turning it off. Take it for professional repair. You can't open microwaves as they have special security screws, plus there is high voltage and dangerous compounds plus the radiation itself.

Whirlpool microwave only cooks for limited time?


It's possible that the module that produces the microwaves is failing. The parts are cheaper but the labor may not so get an estimate before deciding if it's worth repairing or replacing.
