Hi Can anyone help please?

I have an Sharp 362 Microwave oven which will be around 5 years old.

It was working ok up until lunchtime today when I switched on to heat up some milk and over and above the normal noise there is a very loud buzzing noise and it is not heating up.
However it works ok on the grill with no buzzing and heating.

The manual I have is all in Foreign languages sois no use as my Spanish does,nt extend to understanding that.

Any help or advice offered will be gratefully appreciated.

You could try the Sharp website, or Googling, for the user guide/instruction manual-look for an option to click on an English version.

Doesn't sound good though, when a microwave makes that sound it usually means something has burned out and you may indeed be better replacing the thing. Little thing called planned obsolescence.

Many Thanks for your reply and I,ve actually been trawling the Internet and Youtube for some clues.
And as you say it,s sounding serious. I,ve tinkered about with it to the best of my ability cheecking a few things without success.
Sounds like the Magnetron,which is pricey to replace, and I,ll check that tomorrow but as you suggest it,s looking like buying a new one.
Thanks again anyway.

P.S. I wonder if you are in the lovely city of Edinburgh?????

No, just north of Dundee, another lovely Scottish city:D Are you from Edinburgh?

I thought it might be the magnetron, and from personal experience I can tell you it is indeed less expensive to replace the entire microwave. I know 'they' do that on purpose!

Yes. Originally from Edinburgh. Left there for London in 1995 and moved here to Spain in 2001. Four years since I visited family in Edinburgh but hoping to get there in July!!!

Visited Dundee many times for football and love the "Pehs"!!!

As you say Dundee too is a lovely city.

Aw the Best,
