Hello, my name is Kenneth Davis and I'm excited that you've found my appliance services blog. In this blog, you'll learn about buying new appliances, common appliance repairs and new appliance trends. I know a lot about appliances and it all started when I was young and the appliance man came to our house to fix the stove. I watched the appliance man as he did his job and when he was done, our stove worked like new. The appliance man made a big impact on me and after that, I read and learned everything I could about appliances. Today, I still enjoy keeping up with the current designs and features that are available when buying new appliances. I hope that you find my appliance blog fascinating and that it helps you when buying an appliance or requesting an appliance service.
If your microwave isn't working properly, it can be a problem. You may not realize how much you use your microwave or how much you actually need it until it breaks down. When it does happen, you want it working right away. Stop yourself from running out to purchase a new one and read on for a few troubleshooting tips to help you repair your microwave yourself.
1. Check The Vent
The vent at the bottom of your microwave may be causing you a problem. If you aren't able to use the fan portion of your microwave, or it sounds like your microwave is working sluggishly, the vent at the bottom of your microwave may be the problem, as the filter may be dirty. Remove the filter and inspect it. If the filter is full of grease buildup and dust, it will prevent the flow of air. Take the filter and soak it in hot water and dish detergent. Scrub the filter clean, allow it to dry thoroughly, then replace it. Check that your microwave is working properly again, including the vent fan.
2. Check For Power
If your microwave doesn't have any power at all, it could be caused by a few different things. First, check that you didn't pop a breaker. Check your breaker box and see if any of the breakers are popped out. If this isn't the case, then check that the outlet your microwave was plugged into has power. If the outlet is the issue, use a different outlet for the time being and have your outlet replaced. If the outlet wasn't the problem, you can check that the plug and cord to your microwave are still in good shape - any damaged plug should be replaced. Also check to see if your microwave has continuity. If it doesn't, the problem could be a fuse in your microwave. This will require you to find the fuses inside your microwave and inspect them to see if any are damaged. Replace any fuses that need replacing. If you aren't sure about this work, hire a professional to repair your microwave for you.
3. Clear The Area
If your microwave has things stacked on top of it and belongings stored next to it, it could cause a problem with your microwave. Clear the area around your microwave so it doesn't overheat and can cool itself down as needed and work properly. Don't stack belongings on your microwave, and leave at least a few inches between the microwave and your belongings. Piling things too closely can also be a fire hazard.
If your microwave isn't working properly, it can be a big deal. Hire a professional microwave repair service for help repairing your microwave.Share
