Microwave Oven Repair Service
Microwave Troubles? Let Our Appliance Technicians Repair It!
Microwave ovens are found in hundreds of millions of homes worldwide. Making hot food quickly and easily accessible to you and your family, they are truly a miracle of modern technology. Extremely efficient in their use of electricity, microwave ovens use microwave radiation, which excites water, fat, and sugar molecules into atomic motion—also known as heat. When this process is hindered by broken or damaged parts, it’s time for a microwave repair service from experts you can trust.
Types of Microwave Ovens We Repair
- Countertop: These come in a variety of sizes and wattages; however, they take up valuable counter space and offer no ventilation system. We commonly repair this popular type of microwave oven.
- Drawer style: These are installed below a countertop or wall oven, and they slide out. Their height makes them convenient for all family members. Drawer-style microwave oven problems are no match for our repair experts.
- Over-the-range: These appliance models combine a microwave oven and a range hood for space-saving and functionality. Our technicians are familiar with this type of microwave and its common issues.
- Built-in: These blend in seamlessly with cabinetry and feature a drop-down door, like that of a conventional oven. They are typically installed over stoves. Let us know if you need a repair for your built-in microwave.
Common Issues Of Microwaves
The technicians at Illiana Appliance Repair have seen a wide range of problems with kitchen appliances. That means our team is well-versed in handling nearly any type of repair job on your microwave. We make it our mission to quickly identify the issue and provide an effective solution.
If you notice any of these problems, be sure to call us:
If you’re sure the microwave is plugged in and the door is closed properly, the culprit is likely the fuse. If the electrical current got too strong or you slammed the microwave door, a fuse may have blown. If replacing the fuse doesn’t work, you may also have a faulty door switch.
Also called “arcing,” sparks can occur if you put foil or utensils in the microwave, if food splatters ignite, if a high-voltage diode shorts out, or if a defective stirrer (from a broken fan motor or stirrer belt) causes heat to concentrate in one area. Get microwave repair from the experts who care.
If your turntable isn’t rotating, the carousel may need to be re-aligned on the turning mechanism. The issue may also be caused by a worn-out or split turntable drive bushing. Another issue that can cause this is a defective tray motor.
If your microwave is turning on but not heating your food, and you hear a loud buzzing noise, you could have a defective magnetron, capacitor, or diode. It’s best to have these replaced or repaired by professional microwave repair technicians.
Your microwave’s touchpad may be damaged from water or insect infestation, preventing you from properly selecting settings for your food. This means you will need to either replace or repair the touchpad to ensure proper function.
If a microwave turns on and starts up fine, then stops for no reason after a few seconds, there are several potential underlying problems. The first could be a control board or touch panel issue. Diagnosing which of the two may be tricky and expensive if you order the wrong part. More likely you could be dealing with a failure of the magnetron or its surrounding components. Unless you are comfortable working around high voltages and have a good understanding of electronics and the principles of operation of a microwave oven, it may be better to entrust this work to a professional.
