Why does my microwave have a rattling noise? Should there be " Power 100" under time time when it is in use? Is it bad to use the microwave?

I have a Kenmore Elite Microwave purchased in 11-04. Model # 721.80883400 Serial # 406KM00718. It has recently started to have a rattling noise when in use. Also under the time on the clock it says Power 100. I do not remember if this was there before. What is causing this rattling noise? Is it working? We are in the process of selling our home and this will be checked. Should I use the microwave or not?

Thank you

The most common thing that causes a rattling noise in a microwave is bearings in the fan motor or a loose blower in the fan assembly, you can still use the unit for now but it will need to be checked.
