The microwave oven is one of mankind's greatest inventions – It lets people cook food quickly and easily, without worrying about gas connections or electrical heating elements. Microwaves are found in almost every American household, and in most offices, too.
In spite of their usefulness, microwave ovens are much more complex than conventional “hot” ovens and stoves, since they contain a wide variety of electronic parts.
Each day, expert technicians from Arizona Appliance Repair fix microwave ovens throughout the Tucson metro area, and we can usually repair them on the same day that you call us. We specialize in built-in microwaves, and we can repair almost any other type, too.
If your microwave doesn't work, you should first check to see if it's plugged in and if the circuit breaker is tripped, or the fuse is blown.
If it's plugged in but still doesn't work, next make sure that the oven's door is closing fully, otherwise the microwave elements may not operate, for safety reasons. Sometimes the door hooks or door-release button become “stuck.”
Occasionally, the digital keypad and related controls may become unresponsive. You can quickly troubleshoot whether the problem is temporary or whether it requires our help, simply by unplugging the microwave for about a minute, then plugging it back in and trying to restart it.
In addition to the basic parts mentioned above, microwave ovens contain many other electronic components, such as internal fuses and switches, thermostats, fans and motors, power diodes and capacitors, all of which may become faulty over time.
And, if your microwave oven is emitting a growling or high-pitched noise while operating, it means that the high-voltage magnetron is probably faulty. Although this usually isn't a safety issue, it means that your oven needs to be fixed before the unit fails completely.
All these issues are best left to our expert repair technicians, since fixing such parts requires appropriate tools, training and years of experience.
Keep in mind that when dealing with any kind of electronic appliance, safety is always the first consideration. So, if the basic troubleshooting steps above haven't resolved your microwave problems, you should contact us as soon as possible.
