Help - unusual buzzing noise from my microwave oven
If you hear an unusual buzzing noise, the magnetron (the component that actually generates the microwaves) or other electronic module may be broken. This is not easily fixed; contact a service technician.
I'm a tenant and I have a $50 deductible to pay but was wondering if I can ask the landlord to replace the oven for fear of radiation or problem from the existing one. The unit is already 5 years old and we were the first tenant.
I don't mind other appliances replaced but because I'm no rocket scientist, I'm not sure what the effects of a broken microwave is. It head up food but I am telling my wife not to use it anymore for fear of too much irradiation, or am I just paranoid?
