Five Common Microwave Problems
Over the years, our customers have called us for a wide range of appliance repairs. While we always arrive at your home ready to fix almost any problem you’re facing, many times the problems our customers are facing are common issues that we’ve seen many times before. Here are five problems that commonly occur with microwaves:
The microwave is sparking
If you’re using your microwave and see or hear sparks flying while it is operating, there may be a few causes. The most common cause is the presence of a metal object. In this case, just remove any metal from the unit to avoid the build-up of charged particles – or sparking. Sparking can also be caused by a faulty diode or broken waveguide cover. We are prepared to fix both.
The microwave plate stopped spinning
The plate inside your microwave not only ensures even heat distribution but also absorbs excess energy from the microwave. If your plate is not spinning correctly, it may result in unevenly heated food. Don't worry though, resolving this issue is simple. A broken motor is often the culprit and can be easily replaced. If the motor is not the problem, it's possible that the microwave control board is the issue.
The microwave is not heating food well or at all
If your microwave is not thoroughly heating your food, chances are your appliance's magnetron is broken and needs to be replaced. Additionally, a faulty diode or door switch can also cause food not to be heated. Trust our professionals to diagnose and fix these issues for you.
The microwave starts and stops
Is your microwave randomly shutting off after just a few seconds of use? The culprit may be a broken door seal. When the door seal is compromised, the microwave incorrectly detects that the door is open, resulting in the shutdown of the appliance. Fortunately, this is a common and easily fixable issue.
The microwave makes noise or operates louder than usual
Here are a few common reasons why your microwave may be making unusual noise:
- Faulty motor drive
- Defective magnetron
- Drive coupler or roller guide issue
- Damaged or obstructed cooling fan
If you’re experiencing one of these problems – or something else – schedule a service with our St. Augustine microwave repair team today.
Are Microwaves Worth Repairing?
The answer to this question depends on a few factors, such as the age of the microwave, its overall condition, and the complexity of the problem. Microwaves are a common appliance in most households today, and they have become an essential kitchen tool. These electrical devices are simple to use, quick, and efficient, making them very convenient. However, after prolonged use, microwaves may experience wear and tear, which can lead to breakdowns and issues with their overall functionality.
If you’re not sure if you should repair or replace it, give us a call and we’ll be happy to hear about the problem and provide you with a recommendation. CD Appliance Repair also installs microwaves, so if you opt for a replacement, we can install it if needed. We offer a warranty on parts and labor and same-day service when available.
