This is a fault in the high voltage supply, or with the tube itelf. You should take it in for service.

If you are not experienced and set up for microwave oven service, do not try to fix this yourself.

My microwave is making a loud buzzing noise and there was some charred areas inside on side wall


The loud noise is probably the magnetron makign the noise. The charred areas on the wall are from possible grease or food particles arching and burning the cavity. Alot of times there is a cover on the wall it burns. it would need to be replaced, as well as sand and paint the cavity area that is damaged with m/w grade paint.

Started arching


This can be caused by grease in the oven especially on the paper like filter inside most of them. If it has burnt spots it may need to be replaced.

My oven started arching with micowave popcorn (4 or 5 different times). Now it will not heat. No error messages on the screen and everything else works. Thanks Dennis M.


Hi, there are three issues that will cause a no heat situation in a microwave. these issue are a failed Magnetron, busted cut-off fuse and, failed diode.

I recommend checking all these area that are located inside the microwave for faults.

The most common issue will be a failed Magnetron.

The diode and, fuse will be located on the noise filter assembly.

Maytag MMV4205BA microwave buzz/grind when operating then no power


you may have some arching inside where your magnatron is located.If you open the door on the right middle part there is a silverplate on the wall .If it is burned you may need to replace magnatron.if you do not seee burn marks it may still be the magnatron hope.that would be the only possible thing that would make the noise other then the mtor plate out of place.

Arching inside microwave


un plug it right away.

there are carbon deposit near the wave cover. the arching is coming from the magnetron to any exposed metal inside the unit or any carbon deposit since carbon is already conductive, it is sensing it as a metal.

remove and clean the interior of the microwave. polished and paint all exposed metal that you will find in the interior.

then test again the unit.
