Knowing when your appliances are in need of repair can prevent you from requiring even costlier repairs down the road, and can help to ensure that your appliances do not suddenly fail on you. Here are a few microwave repair signs that you can be on the lookout for that can help you to determine if your microwave is in need of repairs.
Your Food is Heating Slowly
If you have noticed that your food is taking longer than normal to heat up, do not despair. While you might immediately assume that your microwave needs replacing, it could be that any number of defective parts is causing the problem. Having your microwave professionally inspected can help you to determine what the problem is, and if your unit can be repaired.
Your Microwave Makes Strange Noises
With any appliance, you should be concerned if it begins making unusual noises. In a microwave, loud noises, such as banging or scraping sounds, could simply mean that the turntable is misaligned or hanging up. However, if you adjust the turntable and still experience issues, then it is likely that a part is failing and that your microwave needs to be professionally repaired.
The Turntable Won’t Turn
Additionally, if your microwave’s turntable won’t turn, you will want to have your appliance repaired as the turntable helps your food to heat evenly. Small parts could be causing this problem that can likely be easily repaired.
