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.

Is it normal for a microwave to make crackling noises when standing and not in use but plugged in ?

A microwave in standby mode should not crackle. There might be a slight humming sound from a transformer, but that should be all the noise it makes. You could have a transformer or control panel component that is failing.

My kitchen aid microwave makes a loud crackling noise every once in awhild

Is it a carousel (turning platter)? if it is, than it is probably dirt on the platter support wheels and the platter support groove/track on the bottom of the oven, clean the glass plate, the support wheels, and the bottom groove as well, if you want to make sure the crackling comes from the carousel system, take it all out (support and platter) than place a glass of water in the oven and start it, if there are no crackling noise than my theory is correct, if the noise is still there than have it checked by a professional technician...

A number of days ago we put two plates of food in the microwave to reheat them. There was a snap, crackle, pop noise. We checked to see there was no metal object in the unit....there wasn't ...we know...

Are you sure the plates were Microwave oven safe? Some dishes have metal in the colors of the design. A snap, crackle, pop noise normally means there is metal present in the oven.

My LG over the range microwave makes a rattling noise when I am cooking. The sound is not there is the item I am microwaving is heavy.

This may sound a bit nuts, but remove the glass tray and support ring. Clean the wheels and ring. Also clean the glass and microwave surface where the wheels run. Any tiny bit of debris will stop the wheels from turning, and make a rattling noise.
If that doesn't help, you may need a new turntable motor.

My microwave is making a cracking sound like if it had metal in it but i took everything out and its still making the cracking sound. What could be causing this sounds if microwave is empty?

A contaminated wave guide cover will crackle and spark.
They should be periodically checked, cleaned or replaced.
Contact Maytag for replacement parts.
Hope this fixes your noise.

Constant rattling noise during operation

possibly the "stirrer" motor - this is in the top and turns a metal reflecting ring to disperse the microwaves around the oven more evenly. About $70 on GE site for my oven.

Works - but the sound has changed

Possibly, the "fault" was the buzzing in the first place! Buzzing is usually a cabinet vibration caused by magnetic fields from the "gubbins". If the buzzing should occur again, try pushing/ pulling/ poking the cabinet while the oven is running, you may find a position that causes the buzz to stop.
Another possibility is you previously had something else placed in close proximity to the oven.
If a rattling cabinet is the problem, either try to reposition something, or just ignore it!
