Hi I have a Kenwood Microwave, just out of warranty, it's started to make a crackling sound even when not in use. Could anyone shed any light on this, just worried about radiation leakage. Thanks

SOURCE: Crackling sound in microwave vent when power is off

By "powered off" can I assume you mean that it is plugged in and at idle, not cooking, just showing the clock?

If so, I'd say your control board is failing.

If my assumption is wrong, please write back with more details.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

SOURCE: After the microwave stops, I the carousel is still turning.

NO RADIATION THERE, AND NOT LIGHT ACTIVATED. THERE SEEMS TO BE A MISCOMMUNICATION WITH IN THE MOTHERBOARD. IF IT PERSISTS YOU MAY WANT TO ET A NEW ONE. MOTHERBOARDS ARE NOT CHEAP.

SOURCE: Turned microwave on this morning ,sudden crackle,then nothing.

Sounds like something has shorted out-blown. Unless it is a very expensive model it won't be worth fixing and is not something you should attempt yourself anyway. If under guarantee then get it repaired via the guarantee arrangements. No harm in checking the plug is wired properly but as the light and timer are working it is very doubtful it is a connection problem. I think you need to buy a new microwave!

Rattling, crackling type noise just started and is constant when microwave is running.


A couple of months ago my microwave started making crackling, rattling and grinding sounds everytime i used it and i thought it was going to break down. It turned out one of my children must have spillled or overflowed something with a clear liquid because the micro did not look dirty but there was a crunchy substance under the wheels of the turntable. Once i cleaned this up totally the noises all went away.

The microwave looks like it is shorting out where the light inside the microwave is. Also it sounds like something is crackling when you turn it on. Sometimes it would smell like it was burning. Help, ...


sounds like the magnetron tube is starting to draw excessive current and arcing over to ground, or the high voltage cap is starting to leak thru and short-out.608-214-5632 or e-mail:applianceservice24_7@yahoo.com

Kenwood microwave (KEN GJ/SS25) heating doesn't work but grill works


Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
