This answer was rated:

I have a GE Profile Advantium 120 Microwave/Oven above the range unit. It makes a sound as if a fan is on with a light ticking noise even when the unit is off. It stops when it is unplugged. Not sure what it is? Also, I do not know how to remove the front upper cover to look inside.

Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today.

Can you look inside and get me the model number off the tag on the side wall? thanks .

That microwave oven unit is very heavy and took 2 men to install it. So I will have to call a local service company.
