Thanks a lot, djman!

I had the same/similar problem - buzzing sound when the door opened, or any cooking function was selected, plus the table did not turn. Replaced C01 (220uf 50 V) and the microwave works like new.

Default Thank you!

All I can is thank you. I purchased a capacitor online and replaced it in 10 minutes. Can't believe it completely addressed this issue.

the noise you hear is contact chatter.
The capacitor and the burned 30k 1/4w resistor did the trick. Like new.

This must be a defect with this model board. Can't imagine how many went into the trash b/c the board is $150 over $4.00 in parts.

FANTASTIC!!!

Thumbs up

Same issue. Microwave started making a terrible buzzing noise. After researching online, I found this thread. Suspected capacitor C01 as djman said. Ordered the part from an online from Parts-Express, bought a cheap soldering iron kit, removed the old capacitor, and soldered in the new one. VOILA, it now works!

I hope someone else finds this useful. I have never soldered anything before and I had no issues, although I read up on it and watched a few YouTube vids first.

Cheers.
