Hello from JA
My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

With out being there and running it to see if it is working correctly that is a impossible question to answer.

Can you record the sound ?

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I would not use it like that, no. The magnetron filament may be damaged and arcing. Can you tell from where the sound comes? At 9 years old, it is likely time to replace the microwave.
