The magnetron most likely has either failed or fixing to fail it is what heats the food while in operation...there is a high voltage transformer in the unit that sends power to the magnetron and heats your food while in operation ...it is a common problem with microwaves the mag usually gets weak and will start to humm or buzz .... the problem with this is they are and can be costly around $100.00 for part and depending on your mechanically capability may be well worth getting a new one rather that tackling the repair yourself... good luck hope this helps please vote.

GE Microwave (JVM1860CD001) control board buzzes.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Magnetron If the microwave is loud or noisy only when cooking, the magnetron tube might be defective. The magnetron uses high voltage, high current DC power to generate the microwave frequency that cooks the food. Under normal circumstances the magnetron is nearly silent. However if it is damaged or nearly burned out it can begin emitting high pitched or growling noises. It's not normally dangerous to use a microwave oven when it makes these noises, but they are an indication that the magnetron is almost dead and will need to be replaced.
Exhaust Fan Motor If the microwave is loud when running the fan motor might be
Stirrer Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the stirrer motor might be worn out. The stirrer is a metal blade which slowly turns around, deflecting the microwave energy in a random pattern inside the microwave oven. As the motor nears the end of its useful life it begins to make grinding noises. The microwave will not heat food evenly without this stirrer, the motor should be replaced.
Turntable Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the turntable motor might be worn out. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

LOUD BUZZING NOISE AND THE ANSWER I RECEIVED WAS FOR A DIFFERENT MODEL. CAN I FIX IT MYSELF?


If the loud buzzing noise is present when cooking food, the magnetron is the likely cause, some models are louder than others. But if the buzzing noise is there without the microwave running it should be checked. No! this something that should be checked by a professional for safety.

My microwave became very loud and will not heat. it is 5 years old and happened suddenly.


If it is a loud buzzing noise it is either the diode or magnetron. Working with the high voltage of a Microwave oven I would never recommend anyone other than a trained professional to attempt this repair.

Loud buzzing noise with Whirpool microwave oven when it comes on. All lights, heating and fan seems to work but not sure why loud buzzing. What is the problem?


The loud buzzing you hear is the sound of the magnatron tube.That is what emits the microwave radiation and buzzing should be normal. The mag tube may be nearing its end at witch time you will hear no buzzing and hence no heating of foods. Replacement can be costly depending on the model so most people just opt for a new one. Hope this helps

Panasonic Microwave NN-C980-B buzzing noise but it still works.


All:
I have a 2003 Sears Ultra Wave microwave 721.63682300 with a similar problem. A few months ago it started giving off short buzzes when turned on. That stopped but then I noticed that everything took twice as long to heat up. After quite a bit of teardown&inspection I found a circuit break in the inverter board leading to ZD704 diode (pictured). I will now try to find a replacement diode to see if replacing will fix it. Thanks for your postings.

Makes a loud buzzing noise and does not get hot


Have seen this many times.

Sounds like a bad CAP since a bad diode would blow the fuse and a bad mag would likely do the same thing.

Since yours is making the loud 60hz buzz you need to replace the capacator that will likely fix the problem. A $10 fix

Viking Micro noise


The noise is probably from the high-voltage transformer. When it is overloaded, the excess magnetic field it produces vibrates its wire coils. Odd that it only happens for a brief time. It is either defective itself (in which case it may go a long time) or it is getting overloaded by the magnatron/capacitor/diode on its output (in which case it will get worse shortly)
Hope Ya Fix it
