Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

If the microwave isn't in use and you're getting a buzzing noise, your display control board has just failed for some reason I'm sorry to say. Whether the board is making the noise or another part is making the noise, nothing should be getting power other than the display board and if something else is getting power then the board is sending power out when it shouldn't be. Either way, below is a link to the display board you'd need to order and replace if unplugging the unit for 5 minutes won't reset the issue.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
