Before You Call Us

There are a few quick checks you can do yourself before calling for microwave oven repair service:

  • Unplug the microwave and plug it back in to reset it. This can clear many minor errors.
  • Check that the door is fully closed and latched. Microwaves will not operate with the door open.
  • Test the outlet with another appliance to ensure it has power. Reset any tripped breakers.
  • Clean the interior and remove any food debris. Crumbs and splatter can impede functioning.
  • Try operating the microwave with a microwave-safe container filled with water. This will verify if the microwave is heating properly.
  • For sparking issues, remove any metal objects from inside the oven. Check for damage to the door mesh screen.
  • If the turntable is not rotating, check for obstructions underneath and ensure it is properly in place.
  • Listen and note any unusual sounds when operating the microwave. This can help pinpoint problems.
