My Whirlpool microwave randomly makes a growling noise (with vibration) when not in use. It seems to be coming from the top above the fan area. Something going out?

sometimes a bad relay on the main timer board will tell the unit to heat with nothing in it and it will arc in the wave guide or antenna area. Arcing sounds like growling or grumbling. "Random" may be from the relay sticking sometimes and then sometimes not. Will destroy the wave guide and the magnetron and the unit could not be repaired. Would have to be replaced if that happens

  • MagnetronIf your microwave is emanating high pitched or growling noises during operation, the magnetron could be going bad. Normally a nearly silent part, the magnetron uses high voltage and induces the frequency required to cook food. Although normally not a safety hazard to operate, this is a sign that the magnetron is failing and will need to be replaced as soon as possible.
  • Exhaust fan motorIf your microwave is making a very loud humming noise during operation, it could possibly be the exhaust fan motor. If defective the part will need to be replaced to silence the appliance once more.
  • Stirrer motorAnother leading cause of a noisy microwave is an expired stirrer motor. With use this part becomes worn and makes a loud grinding noise, which is usually a leading indicator that the part needs to be replaced. The stirrer is a metal blade that is slowly turned by the motor. This action disperses the microwave energy in a random pattern, which heats the food evenly. If the stirrer motor is determined to be nearing expiration, it should be replaced to halt the grinding noise.
  • Turntable motorA very common cause for a noisy microwave is a worn out turntable motor. This is a relatively easy repair and will put an end to the noise once replace

    According to one of your solutions rergarding a noisy k45 kitchenaid I removed the brushes to examine and upon multiple attempts to reinsert properly - the noisy machine no longer operates to make noise. ...

    Hello; Bummer trade off, huh? Ok , here we go.Getting it to run again, then address the noise. The attached drawing shows how the brushes should be installed. The brushes take a set and must be placed back into the same holder and leading edge into rotation, set square on the armature, w/full contactand spring pressure. After Slidingthe brush in place, lift it slightly and let it drop back onto thr srmature. Not much and let the spring set the brush and align .You want to make sure the brush moves smoothly up and down. The part the brushes ride on is called the the commutator. The copper bars. Each is separated by a thin piece of mica. If there is any copper bridging the mic, the motor will be noisy and not run smooth. In this case, use an ice pick to scratch the mica so it's below the copper ba abou, never mind, just run the pick down the mica groove to keep the bars seperated. Put it all together and turn it on. You may have to tap the motor to get it going. Once it gets going let the motor run for about 15 minutes at high speed and 5 minutes at low speed, Good luck and take caution not to get shocked. I'm here so feel free to keep in touch. 909-630-3192. Ned

    Stopped working normally, makes low grumbling noise

    have a look at the glass plate rollers first if there sticky free them off, but if the noise is from the inside of the microwave its likley to be a short in the mains coil witch case dont even think of fixing it
    it would be far cheeper to buy a new microwave insted
    a word of warning,,, dont think you can fine an easy fix for it, if its an internal fult, and dont go tinkering inside of it, there is very high voltage inside this microwave it can kill you if you tuch the wrong part have ever seen a police stun gun working???????
    it realy hurts you,,,
    your microwave has the stun guns very big brother inside of it,, it dont stun,, it kills!!!!
    best to plat it safe dump it and buy a new one
    there only about £50 today
    so is your life worth more than £50???????/

    It's normal for it to rotate in either direction. It has to do with the position of the motor and the instantaneous line polarity at the time the power is engaged.

    But the grinding noise may indicate a problem...

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

    If yours sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor.

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

    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.
