Kitchenaid builtin microwave buzzing

Kitchenaid builtin convection microwave has a loud buzzing noise when running. Still cooking fine. Noise temporarily stops when you push on right side of door. Noise is intermittent when in 50% power mode. Changed Magnetron but it still makes the noise.
Thank you .

I would recommend changing the diodes as well. This will usually take care of the problem.

Loud noise when cooking

I had an arcing sound coming from above the cardboard panel inside the microwave. When I saw it sparking I took the cover off and saw that these two aluminum looking things had come loose. I removed the cover and did a fair bit of 'fine tuning' to get it working again.

My Kitchenaid combo convection/mw works on convect but has a loud humming and no heat on microwave.

A loud humming noise in microwave mode will usually be a shorted high voltage diode or bad magnetron.

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.

All the controls work and seems to be working with tray rotating but makes noise and does not cook

Having noise means some obstruction near the rotating tray or its motor need some lubricant. Has for no cook but control seems working, the magnetron and its fuses is the culprit because it doesn't anymore produce heat to cook food.
I hope that advice help you.

Microwave runs without cooking

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html
(if it is NOT shorted or burned looking, it's probably fine)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
(continuity can be good even though mag is bad!)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
