For the most part, microwaves seem like simple and reliable appliances; however, just like every other appliance in your home, it is entirely possible that your microwave may need to be repaired every so often.
For example, if you are finding that your microwave oven takes more time to heat and cook items than it used to, you may want to consider hiring a professional to determine what part of your microwave may be malfunctioning. In many cases, a professional will be able to determine whether or not you should purchase a new microwave altogether. In fact, any microwave that is older than fifteen years should be replaced. Fortunately, there are many microwaves available on the market today that are affordable for the average home.
If you have had your microwave oven for less than fifteen years and believe that you need to schedule a C&W Appliance Service technician to come out to your house to conduct microwave repair, it is highly recommended that you do not repair it yourself, especially if you are not experienced with electrical appliances or electrical appliance repair. Many microwave ovens have the capability of carrying 3,000 to 5,000 volts of electricity. If you do not want to risk getting electrocuted, contact C&W Appliance Service prior to performing any microwave repair on your own.
Overall, microwave ovens do not require a high amount of maintenance; however, they do require some. One of the simplest things you can do to maintain your microwave is to clean it regularly. When cooking or heating items in your microwave, reduce the chance of an exploding mess by covering the items with a microwave-safe top, but be sure that there is some amount of ventilation to prevent the accumulation of pressure. The last thing you will want to do is clean up an exploded potato in your microwave due to insufficient ventilation. In addition, you should also remove any food particles that are left in the microwave oven after use as these food particles can transform into carbon if microwaved several times.
