Squealing microwave when started

I have a GE Microwave JVM1740DMBB. Sometimes when I start it, the microwave squeals. If I open the door, close it, and then start the oven again, the squeal is gone. I can't find any troubleshooting tips on GE's website. Any idea what is wrong, and is it fixable?

Welcome to the forums.

David.... you would have to drop the microwave down and run it without the cover in order to find out which of the several motors was making the squealing noise.
