Built in Microwave Noise

I have a Samsung SMH 1713S built in microwave  Originally I heard a noise inside of the microwave and thought that it could be the turntable. I made sure that it was clean and positioned correctly. That did not resolve the noise. So I removed the front panel to replace the charcoal filter. I noticed in the back of the unit that there is a white squirrel cage and that I can rotate it. What I am wondering is what does that do and is it supposed to move when the microwave it on and working?

Re: Built in Microwave Noise

The squirrel cage fan is for the exhaust feature on the OTR microwave unite. It only runs when the exhaust is enabled.
