How do I repair a Microwave Oven?

In short, unless you’re a qualified professional, you should never try to fix an electrical appliance on your own. In the event that your Microwave runs and then stops, does not heat, the plate doesn’t spin, has any kind of sparking or you experience issues with buttons not working, you should discontinue use and seek the assistance of a qualified repairman. You can read more below about some of the more common issues we face.

As one of the most common problems affecting proper Microwave function, no heat can be a sign of one or more defective parts. In many cases, this type of fault can be caused by a faulty Magnetron, which is the essential internal part. By testing the Magnetron with a multi-meter, our technician can quickly tell if the Ohms reading is low, and therefore would indicate a replacement needed. 

Other issues effecting the ability to heat may be caused by a faulty door switch or malfunctioning high voltage diode. In any case, rigorous testing is necessary to identity the problematic part and ensure its fixed at the lowest cost to you as possible. 

Microwave buttons not working is another common fault and one that we receive many requests to fix. Through normal ware and tear, buttons can easily become defective and usually indicates an issue with the main control board. Testing for this kind of issue is fairly straight forward for a competent professional and using the latest diagnostics technology, we can quickly determine the cause of the fault.

For issues with Microwave buttons, we will test for defective Control Panel, issues with the membrane switch and any problems with the main control board. A through inspection is necessary on site however will allow us to rule out faulty components one by one, limiting the time and cost needed to fix the issue.

One of the best ways to avoid Sparking inside your Microwave is to ensure that its kept clean and free from grease and other liquids. Using your Microwave when its in poor condition is the number one cause of internal sparking, and if experiencing this type of fault, its advised to stop use straight away. If after a thorough clean the problem persists, discontinue use and call a professional right away.

Sparking can be a common fault and does not necessarily mean your device has a serious fault. Scraps of tin foil or other metal can cause this fault, as can damaged rack support or a burned diode. Call our technicians just to be sure, we promise it wont break the bank!
