Perhaps it is the sound of the underside of the oven platter becoming engaged with the drive spigot underneath it. If so it may well be normal for your particular oven.

Convection needs fan drive to force the air into the oven cavity. The fan may be direct motor drive or belt driven. If the latter the belt may be broken or simply have stretched and come off.

Platters come in many sizes and with many different means of being rotated using either "Drive spiders" or "Drive Spigots". Try the manufacturer first or look up on Google or Ebay or Gumtree to see if someone local to you has the same oven up for sale.

What is it that you are losing ? You can set the power level by using the marked touchpads on the touchpanel, much like setting the volume on a TV. If you do not change the power setting and it is taking a long time to heat things or intermittently fails to, that is usually a sign that the Magnetron has reached its use by date and needs to be replaced. Not always an economical proposition unfortunately as spare parts are often exorbitantly priced.

When touch panel buttons fail to work it usually means that the whole panel will need to be replaced to remedy the problem.

Microwaves are trapped within the oven cavity and do not enter the area outside of it. Metal reflects microwaves as does the mesh across the oven door. You can buy a strip of adhesive foam of reasonable density from your local hardware store which will serve the purpose.

To set the time display, the steps usually are to first turn off the microwave oven completely. Then power it on. Touch the "Clock" or "set time" pad and key in the current time. Press the set pad to lock the time.

Cockroaches are notorious lovers of microwave ovens ! If they have found their way into yours expect to find damage caused by their faecal droppings which are acidic and can destroy wiring and flat wiring connections. Sometimes a good clean can revive things, but if that fails then the only remedy is to replace the control panel. That you may find to be more costly than buying a new oven.

The magnetron carries the part number for itself. You can sight it by removing the cover. Parts are available from the maker or repairs agents. However, the cost of a new magnetron may exceed the cost to replace the Microwave Oven.

You appear to be referring to the LCD/LED display above the touch panel, which is not a light bulb. If the panel display is dim it may be due to grime on the inside of the plastic transparent window. The whole touch panel has to be removed in order to clean it. Failing that, the panel would have to be replaced which may not be economically viable as it may cost more than to purchase a good working second hand or new oven.

This fault is usually associated with the Temperature Sensor/Blocked duct. Or it maybe the Thermostat assembly itself, or it may both. First try obtaining a Thermistor, and replacing that, if still not going, then replace the thermostat/main board. remember also that most often it's never just replace ONE component and all will be well, most often, when a unit faults, then they are more prone to future failures.

However to be able to do this you will first need to obtain a service manual, to get the parts numbers for one, and to know how to disassemble and locate the faulty components.

However, it may be more cost efficient to obtain a "Quote" for the repair from an authorised Miele service center, even if you have to get a tech to call.
