Question about Hamilton Beach Microwave Ovens
If the motor you hear squeaking is the internal fan (not the vent fan if it has one) then that will have to be replaced or lubed. if that fan stops working then the magnetron will be damaged very quickly ... servicing inside the microwave is a bit dangerous ... make sure it is always unplugged anytime the cover is off ... the voltage and current inside is potentially fatal .while its plugged in ... if the internal fan is slowing down then the magnetron will get very hot. .. if you are handy you can re-lube the magnetron cooling fan by removing the cabinet (unplugged of course) ... use a lite machine oil or oil designed for very small motors .. don't use teflon oil or WD40 .. good sewing machine oil is ok ... make sure the plastic mounting for the fan is ok and not warped or cracked ... make sure the fan blade doesn't touch anything and turns freely .. if you are not mechanically inclined then you might get an estimate for repairs .. often a new microwave costs less than repairs to an old one ..
