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 ..

After approx a minute a regular squeak begins, occasionally missing a beat.Heating is fine.


If the "frequency" of the squeaking is a low frequency, the I would suspect the turntable motor or stirrer motor (if so equipped).

If it is a higher frequency, I would suspect the cooling fan or hood fan motor.

My microwave oven just stopped cooking. The light comes on and the Motor is running, but much louder than normal.


The magnetron in your microwave has probably gone out. The magnetron is the part of the microwave oven that produces microwaves. If you unit is a built in model, it will likely cost more to fix than a new one. Same thing goes for a countertop unit.

Motor sounds louder than normal. food won't heat up.


This sound like the Magnatron (this warms the food) has gone out and needs replaced! To be honest with you ,unless you can do this repair yourself it might be cheaper to buy a new oven
I hope I was of help!

In the meantime a local repair (sole trader) replaced the above mentioned parts HV diode and replace 2 fuses. He warmed a cup of water to test and I took it home. With in 5 mins of use at home the same happened again. It was not louder then usual.
