This morning when I tried to heat up some food with my GE PVM1870SM1SS, I heard a much louder buzzing than the normal hum of the unit. After about 10 seconds of this, I heard a pop/crackle (sounded a bit like an electrical arc internally), then the unit quieted down (quieter than normal operation) and continued counting down/spinning turntable. However, there was no heating of the food. Any ideas if this old unit is worth replacing? Any cheap failures that could cause this? Otherwise will likely be looking at just buying a replacement unit given the age of the microwave. Thanks in advance for any help pointing me in the right direction.
