My microwave makes unusual noise during heating?

Last modified : Mar 09. 2018

When you hear strange noises from your microwave while cooking, one possible cause is that the turntable or Roller Ring may have been dislocated from their respective positions, turntable should rotate freely. Check if turntable is balance correctly. 


If you are experiencing the following, unplug the unit from the power outlet for 30 seconds then turn it back On.

●     Microwave is beeping repeatedly or intermittently while not in use.
●     Making strange noises that you have never heard before or a noise that you are concerned about.
●     Unit will not stop beeping even after pressing the “Stop or Clear” buttons.

Please note: The machine may generate humming sound during operation. This is normal, this can be attributed to either oscillation of magnetron or the vent fan operation.
