Question about Maytag MMV5186A Microwave Oven
The microwave makes a lot ( alo means a lo............t) of noise as if two surfaces are grinding agaist each other or if something is worn out on starting up but after running for about a minute or so has a smooth operation.
If the unit is cooking ok, then it sounds like possibly your cooling fan has the blower wheel rubbing and when the rpm's come up, the blower wheel migrates away from the rubbing surface. It is very common for a blower wheel to loosen up, or a bearing in the bottom end of the blower to fail, causing the sound.
If you dare to venture into the unknown, you can investigate the noise and maybe be able to adjust the attitude of the blower wheel or fan blade, which ever is loose
Post me if I can be of more help.
