My microwave (2001) has been operating well...until today!

Contractor's Assistant: What's the microwave's make and model? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

It's making an odd noise, but not functioning. There is an F6 on the screen. XCL0313927 As I said, it's 16 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If I knew what to do, I might. But there's not a mechanical bone in my body.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Is the noise like a growling type sound, rather obnoxious sounding?

May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
