Do I Need A New Microwave?

At the first mark of an issue, many people pick to discard their old microwave and buy a new one. You might be surprised to learn that repairing microwave ovens is more affordable than you think there are a few instances where it’s worth considering. 

When The Turntable is Not Rotating

This may mean that the turntable needs to be re-aligned or that you have a split or training hub for the turntable drive. Both of these are simple and inexpensive fixes that will get your turntable up and moving in no time.

The Oven is Not Heating Food Properly

A faulty magnetron, diode, or capacitor is probably to blame. Although there are relatively inexpensive repairs, they are somewhat complex and therefore, must be performed by a professional.

The Microwave Isn’t Working at All

If your microwave is plugged into a working outlet, the likely cause is a blown fuse, which may be caused by the door slamming too hard. Another culprit may be a faulty door switch, which takes only a few minutes to replace.

The TouchPad Works Only Part of Time

This is a common issue when the microwave is affected by water or insects. Replacing the sensor pad should solve any issues you have, ensuring you are able to use it unmistakably every and each time. 

When to Replace Your Microwave

If you see sparks coming from your microwave with no metal or foil inside, it’s time for a replacement. This is a dangerous state that can cause your microwave to catch fire. This is often due to a hole in the cavity wall, and this is not easy to fix.

You use your microwave frequently, so it’s only natural to expect some problems from time to time. If you notice any of the above minor issues, please contact us to schedule a service.
