GE Profile PT970BM1BB Microwave Buzzes when Door is Shut
Model Number: PT970BM1BB Brand: GE Age: 1 - 5 years
My 4.5 year old GE Microwave PT970M1BB Buzzes Loudly when the door is shut. This microwave is built-in with an Oven below.
Loud buzzing starts immediately when the door is shut.
So far, I have replaced the Transformer, Magenetron & a plastic "Air-Cover" (basically a duct that goes between the Magenetron & the side wall of the microwave cooking chamber).
The original "Air Cover" was melted on top so I assumed the Magnetron was overheating causing this problem.
I just completed the replacement of all these parts and when I shut the
door the buzzing starts and I see some "whisps" of smoke coming up from the magenetron. I am not sure if this is just because it is new and needs to break in a little and burn off some paint or if this is another symptom of the real problem.
I called one of the sales folks and they looked up my problem and said that other Posts have indicated either a bad door switch or the control board for the microwave.
Hopefully this will be a relatively cheap-fix since I have already sunk alot of money and time into this unit.
Thanks for your help.
