Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If the unit sounds the same as it always has, the magnetron is likely faulty. Do you have an ammeter to test the current draw when the unit is running? If about 6-8 amps draw, the magnetron is faulty. Let me know what you find, please.
