Newer Sharp carousel microwave model smc1452CH noise from vibration
My microwave makes horrible noise from vibration when running. I can press on the sides of the microwave and it decreases. Seems it needs insulation in the sides to stop this. I taped some foam on each side and it does help a lot but it eventually falls off. Can I open the case and put some foam on the inside each side to stop this? Its really loud
"DO NOT EVER COVER A MICROWAVE
* Open the door Halfway.
If it Opens more or Closes More. Its not Level - Remedy thatLook at the Factory FeetThey are probably Hard Plastic?Try and source some self adhesive rubber feet (they come with eveything from Ikea!)The Feet will also stop the micro sliding all over if you need to press a button hard to open
THIS HAS WORKEDLoosen all the screws in the cover.You DO NOT need to remove the Screws - just loose.You DO NOT nor should you remove the Cover - Unless you need to and know what you are doing.Screws may be of the security type- meaning you need a special screwdriver- Loosen the ones that you canWhilst Pressing down firmly in the centre of the top of the cover Re-Tighten the screws.
Thats it!! ???
What you have done is released “tension” that was stored in the cover by poor assembly of the microwave.
- This was enabling the 50/60Hz (depending where you live) frequency from the cooling fan to couple (vibrate) into the microwave mechanics and resonate at a louder amplitude than intended."
