Question about Westpoint TV-201 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

I have a 220 Advantium. I love it and it is 8 years old. When I tried to cook in it today it made a louder vibrating noise, almost like a grinding sound. Not sure that it was cooking because I stopped it imediately. Lights come on and clock works!

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.

I have a Sharp Carousel R-590 microwave that is about 10 years old. I fixed popcorn last night and after it stopped I added 30 seconds. It appeared to run but with a different and louder noise. However,...


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps

Hello, i own a 7year old advantium oven everything works except the microwave, the key pad and timer shows its on but wont heat. any suggestions thanks


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

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.

If it sounds the same as usual or a little louder, I would suspect the magnetron or high voltage diode has failed.

If it is much quieter than usual I would suspect a bad upper door switch.

The service manual is here.

Also see this file on door switches.

Troubleshooting my Kenmore 721.66227


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Otherwise, when you hit Start to cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?

Any unusual noises?

Is it louder or quieter than usual?

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting Sears to get it fixed free.

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!
