Should You Repair or Replace Your Microwave Oven?

Just about all of us have small appliances in our kitchen, such as microwave ovens. When something goes wrong with it, should you consider having it repaired, or should you just go out and buy a new one? The answer might not be as clear-cut as you think.

When to Call a Pro – And When to Get a New Microwave Oven

You might be surprised that it sometimes makes sense to have a professional come to your home to make repairs to a microwave oven. Even though something may seem minor, it’s important that you never try to fix a microwave oven yourself. You could make a mistake that could cause a serious injury. But even if you don’t get hurt, you might make a small issue worse, and wind up having to buy a new one.

If you just bought your microwave and are having issues such as a faulty door switch or a malfunctioning touch pad, call a professional. The same holds true if the light won’t come on when you open the door.

Other problems, however, will require you to get a new microwave. These include a loud buzz when you start the oven, or loud noises while food is cooking. If food takes longer to cook than normal, you should also consider a replacement.

The experts with Appliance Home Service are familiar with all makes and models of microwave ovens. We can come to your home and quickly let you know whether a repair is warranted, or the time has come to buy a new one. Call 281-656-8428 or use our convenient online form to get in touch.
