Can Microwave Ovens Be Repaired?

Fortunately, many microwave problems can be repaired by replacing a part or reconfiguring the system. If we determine your microwave oven is damaged beyond repair, we can recommend a replacement that matches your needs, preferences, and budget. Unless you’re a professional, identifying microwave oven problems can be challenging. Our experts can inspect your appliance and get things working properly again. Some of the most common microwave problems Mr. Appliance of Spencer IA repairs include the following:

Microwave Won't Turn On

You could have a blown fuse if your microwave oven won't turn on. Before calling your local Mr. Appliance, ensure your microwave is plugged in, and the door is completely closed. Microwave oven repairs may be necessary if it still won’t turn on.

Sparks Inside the Microwave

Arcing, which occurs when something metallic is inside the microwave when turned on, can also be triggered by a defective stirrer or a shorted high-voltage diode. We can inspect your unit and determine what’s causing it to spark.

Microwave Won't Heat

If food isn’t getting hot enough in your microwave oven, you could be dealing with a faulty magnetron, capacitor, or diode. We can quickly replace these parts to restore your kitchen to its normal routine in no time.

Control Panel Issues

Faulty control panels may intermittently function or not work at all. Control panel replacement may be required to restore your microwave oven.

Resetting Your Microwave

While most residential microwaves don’t include a hard reset button, there are a few ways you can try resetting your microwave if it freezes or the settings become confusing. If you see an "off/reset/cancel" button, hold it until it beeps to perform a soft reset. This will clear any ongoing tasks and timers. For a hard reset to factory settings, try unplugging your microwave for 20 to 30 minutes.

Repairing & Replacing Microwave Parts

When one of the parts on your microwave stops working, you face the dilemma of repairing or replacing the unit. While we take pride in our ability to fix nearly any microwave, it often involves replacing specific components. During our appliance inspection, you can trust us to provide an honest recommendation regarding whether repairing or replacing your unit is the most cost-effective option.

  • Lights
  • Fuses
  • Diodes
