Common Microwave Issues We Repair
Microwave Just Won’t Start
Assuming that the microwave's door is shut and plugged in properly the most likely cause of this issue is the fuse. Most cases require the fuse to be replaced. Our technicians are well trained to tackle such a problem, feel free to call us regarding the same.
Spark Emission When in Use
Sparking, also known as “arching”, occurs when a high voltage diode shorts out or due to a defective stirrer causing the heat to concentrate in one spot. This problem can be easily fixed once our technicians take care of it.
Turntable Won’t Turn
Upon troubleshooting with the help of our technicians, the reasons that turntables won’t turn are: the tray motor has gone bad or the carousel needs to be realigned over the turning mechanism.
Touchpad Won’t Respond
Touchpad, being the most sensitive part of the appliance, has to be handled with care. Water damage may cause them to stop working. In such a case, feel free to contact our team to get affordable microwave repair services!
Microwave Door Won’t Open
A microwave door that won’t open may be a fairly easy fix. It’s likely that the pivot mechanism that engages and/or disengages the door latch hook is broken. Our microwave appliance repair technician will be able to replace the broken part with a short visit. We advise unplugging the microwave while you’re waiting for it to be serviced in the interest of safety.
It isn’t Heating My Food
If your microwave won’t heat your food you may have a problem with the magnetron — a key component of your microwaves heating system. The high voltage diode pushes power to the magnetron, but sometimes the process fails. Our microwave appliance repair technician is trained to easily diagnose these types of issues and repair them so you can trust that you’ll be back to warming up your popcorn soon.
I’m Getting Error Codes
If your appliance is producing error codes when you try to use it there could be a quick and easy fix. Try unplugging your machine for at least 60 seconds. This will allow enough time for the power to disconnect and may reset the error codes so that you can use your microwave again. If error codes keep coming up our technicians are always available to help with repairing microwave ovens.
The Buttons Aren’t Working
If you find that the touchpad inside isn’t responding at all to switch your machine on it could mean that your microwave needs to be replaced. In most cases, though you’ll probably notice some buttons work while others don’t. This is a strong indication that the touchpad needs to be replaced. We’ll be able to tell if this is the issue and fix it for you.
The Microwave Doesn’t Stop When the Timer Ends
If your microwave isn’t stopping when the timer’s complete it’s probably the control board. You’ll probably have to open the door manually to stop the cooking process. Our microwave oven repair service can identify and fix this common problem for you on countertop microwaves, built-in microwaves and over the range microwaves.
I’m Hearing A Lot of Strange Noises
Strange noises coming from your microwave are usually another indicator that the magnetron is on the way out. Your appliance may continue to work for a while but the magnetron will need to be replaced in the near future to prevent further problems.
