Rattling noise




     Is rattling noise being heard over sound of ventilation fan and operating magnetron?


○ Troubleshooting              

      If the accessories inside the microwave oven cavity are improperly installed they risk coming

     up loose when operating unit and create a rattling noise.


     Avoid storing objects directly on top of the microwave oven or even leaning against the sides

     of the unit. Objects especially such as glass, ceramic or metal will vibrate from magnetron

     operating if leaning too close and generate a rather annoying rattling noise. Remove all objects

     from the top and any from both sides if they happen to be touching exterior panel.
