That's usually a bad magnetron. This one has a 5-year warranty on the magnetron, so you should only have to pay for labor to get it replaced. I would call Maytag at 800-688-1120.

How do I get rid of the noise?

Hello, Sarkis -

I found 4 descriptions of what may be causing the noise when you operate your microwave oven. See the information on all 4 possible causes here:
https://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Microwave/78-88--/Tappan-Microwave-is-loud-or-noisy

Note: Safety advice I have read regarding microwave oven repair is to have a microwave oven repaired only by an authorized repair technician. It is not do-it-yourself work.

Any repair might not be worth the cost compared to purchasing a new replacement. A microwave repair technician authorized to work on Tappan microwave ovens will be able to evaluate what is causing the loud noise and give you an estimate of the repair costs.

Note: If you find you need to replace your microwave oven, please be sure the old microwave oven is sent to electronics recycling.

Best wishes.

Unit makes a lot of noise when cooking.

The exhaust fan may be loose, {check mounts} also, the turnable motor that rotates the plate often gets noisey before seizing, {remove plate to see if noise goes away} and finally the magnetron gets very loud near end of life.

more that likley it burnt out the magnatron
(the bit that heats the food up) its a big radio stashion realy, microwaves are radio waves and bounce off things like tins but they get bounced back at the magnatron and it over heats it till it burns out, the true word is "it ages it" but at the end of the day it just dont work no more,,,to buy a magnatron is not cheap and trying to fit one yourself is likely to kill you first
as there will be 1000's of volts still kicking about inside your microwave in the capacitor witch works just like a police stun gun, however it dont just stun you it could well kill you,, not smart to tuch this bit huh? its far safer to just dump the old one and buy a nice new one,,,but keep the little one's off it this time
im told they take 20 mins per pound to cook them?
i do like children,but iv never eat a hole one yet!

GE JVM1850CH06 microwave no heat with loud humming sound

With the details you described, the high voltage diode might be shorted( usually HVR 1X). It is connected from the Capacitor and the chassis, or else the capacitor is the one at fault,but not common .

Microwave does not heat/cook

hi

power spikes are very damaging to a microwaves internal parts, it sounds like your transformer and/or magnetron are blown. if the unit is out of warranty I would recommend calling a repairman or getting a new microwave (the transformer & magnetron are expensive and dangerous to work on) also get a small single plug surge protector for the new one.
