Do You Notice Any of These Issues?
If you run into problems like these, reach out to us for microwave oven repair services:
- The microwave isn’t working.
If you’re sure the microwave is plugged in and the door is closed properly, the culprit is likely the fuse or a faulty door switch.
- There are sparks inside the microwave.
Also called “arcing,” sparks can occur if you put foil or utensils in the microwave, food splatters ignite, a high-voltage diode short out, or a broken fan or stirrer belt causes heat to concentrate in one area.
- The turntable is not rotating.
The carousel may need to be realigned on the turning mechanism. If not, the issue may be caused by a worn-out drive bushing or a defective tray motor.
- Microwave isn’t heating food.
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.
- The touchpad only works intermittently.
Your microwave’s touchpad may be damaged from water or insect infestation, preventing you from properly selecting settings for your food. Touchpad replacement may be necessary.
Because these warning signs could imply many different causes, we don’t recommend trying to be your own microwave repair person. The surest way to get a positive diagnosis and an efficient fix is to have Mr. Appliance check out your broken microwave.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can you repair a hole inside a microwave?
A hole will compromise a microwave’s ability to function safely and efficiently. It’s generally recommended that you replace a microwave if it has a hole inside or outside.
How to get burnt smell out of a microwave:
Clean the inside of the microwave with water and dish soap. Then put a cup of water (with an optional tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar) in the microwave. Turn it on for three minutes to steam the inside. Then clean it a second time. Finally, put a box of baking soda inside the unit overnight. It is still smelly? Ask Mr. Appliance to replace the microwave filter for you.
How to silence a microwave:
Don’t like that dinging noise? Some microwaves have a built-in mute feature controlled by a button that says Sound or Volume. If your unit doesn’t have that feature, you may be out of luck, as it’s dangerous to alter the wiring to disable the speaker. If your microwave is beeping at strange times, you likely need a professional repair.
How to unlock a microwave that’s in child lock mode:
For most types of microwaves, you can fix this issue by pressing and holding the Off or Clear button for a few seconds. Check your owners’ manual for exact instructions.
