Is Your Microwave In Need Of Repair? Here's How To Tell

You have a microwave, and for the most part, the unit does its job well. However, you've been noticing that your microwave isn't working as it normally does and is actually causing somewhat of a problem. You can get the unit repaired or replaced, and in many instances, repairing the unit can be cheaper. This is especially the case if you have a larger microwave or one of the versions that is installed in the wall of your kitchen.

You can get more out of your microwave if you do your part to watch out for repairable issues. Here are signs your microwave could use some fixing. Always rely on an appliance specialist to treat your microwave's condition for you. Repairing your microwave on your own can result in accidental injury or electrical shock, which is very dangerous.

Food is hot in some parts and very cold in others

If your food is coming out of the microwave super hot in the middle but freezing on the outside, the plate may not be spinning well or not at all. Your microwave may also not be heating properly and can result in unevenly heated or even partially burned food. You can get this minor repair done by your appliance specialist for great results.

Your microwave is spitting sparks

Your microwave may spit sparks while it's in operation if the unit has been recently wet with a cloth or beverage, something is stuck in the vents and threatening to catch fire, or if there is a piece of metal stuck inside the appliance. A microwave that randomly sparks can be a danger for both electrical damage and fire, so make sure you address this type of concern as quickly as it occurs. Your microwave specialist will check the inside and back of your microwave to see what the issue may be and will make repairs as needed.

Your microwave is having troubles staying on

Your microwave is having problems staying on, and you want to do what you can to keep the unit running well. When your microwave is having problems staying running when you have the unit plugged in, the problem may be a power surge from the outlet, problems with the actual cord or plug in, or other issues with your microwave overall. It's best to work with an appliance repair specialist to help you identify the issue you have as well as help you come up with ways to take care of the problem.
