GE Spacemaker XL1800 Buzzing

This morning, my seven year old microwave started a buzzing noise that appears to come from high up on the right side (console) from inside the oven.  It started when I hit the clear button to close the top vent after not completing a cook time.  When I turn the fan on, the buzzing stops.  When I turn the light on, the tone of the buzzing changes.  Is there an easy fix for this??

    Having the same problem myself. Just started last week. Mine only buzzes when I turn the light on or cook. Am looking for a solution.

    Same problem here. The buzzing volume changes when I adjust the light but it's always there and it's getting annoying!

THe buzzing noise is most likely coming from the magneton. The magnetron is the main component of the unit (it generates the microwaves). Replaceing it can be very expensive. You may be better off getting a new oven. Prices for new microwave ovens have dropped significantly.

GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 The microwave runs, the lights come on, timers goes, but it does not heat/cook and it makes a loud buzzing sound.What is wrong with it,and can I repair or trouble shoot it?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If it’s a loud hum/buzz sound then 90% it’s usually a bad magnetron and other times it’s a bad high voltage diode. However, from what you have described it seems to be the magnetron. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

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.
