Troubleshooting Microwave Oven Problems

There could be a number of reasons why your microwave oven is not operating at peak performance. Below you will find the common issues that Southwest Appliance Repair of San Antonio can fix with ease.
Microwave oven is not working at all: A few things can be preventing your microwave from operating. If the current becomes too strong, the fuse will cut off the flow to the electrical current, which is a safety device that is in place as precaution. The fuse protects your microwave from major damage if the current becomes too strong. More often than not, simply replacing the fuse is what Southwest Appliance Repair of San Antonio will do first.

A malfunctioning door switch may also be the cause of the microwave being inoperable. Southwest Appliance Repair of San Antonio will run a diagnostic on your microwave’s door switch and if it is defective, we can get replace it quickly and efficiently.
Microwave oven is sparking during operation: The issues with a sparking microwave could be serious, and is best if you allow a professional from Southwest Appliance Repair of San Antonio to get it operating. The internal cavity could be primary problem. Food splatters and drippings will continue to cook every time it is in use, which can contribute to sparking. The solution can be safely repaired by the owner, by making sure the entire interior of your microwave is thoroughly cleaned regularly. Instead of distributing energy evenly throughout the unit, the focus can be concentrated in just one area, resulting in burning and sparking effects. The stirrer may not be working efficiently for two major reasons; one could be the fan motor has ceased to operate or the stirrer belt has broken. No matter the reason, Southwest Appliance Repair of San Antonio technicians can manage the repairs to get your microwave working safely and sufficiently. A problem with the high Voltage diode needs to be tested with an odometer as the high voltage diode could have shortened out or opened. Southwest Appliance Repair of San Antonio can perform the testing and if that is issue, make the needed repairs.
Turntable is not spinning: There are four potential issues if the turntable is not spinning. The owner can first check to make sure the turntable guide is in proper alignment and to remove any food debris that might be prohibiting it from turning. The plastic drive bushing is the turntable tray it is seated on. If it has become worn or even cracked or split, it will not spin the turntable and a replacement will be in order. Sometimes the carousel cooking tray becomes misaligned; a simple adjustment may be all that’s required. If an adjustment does not do the trick, the carousel cooking tray’s motor could have malfunctioned and Southwest Appliance Repair of San Antonio can make the needed repairs.
Microwave that is abnormally heating or producing buzzing noises: A few things could be the underlining issue if you notice these symptoms. A defective power diode can cause the microwave to not produce any heat or make a buzzing sound during operation. Replacing the defective diode is all that is necessary. A diode is an electronic component passes current in one direction and blocks the flow of current in the opposing direction. Electrical device storing the electricity is the capacitor, which if you hear any buzzing, humming or notice that it is not heating up could be faulty. Southwest Appliance Repair of San Antonio will test the capacitor and replace if necessary. Just like the high voltage capacitor, the magnetron could be creating the problems and with a simple test can determine if it is responsible, if so a replacement is all that is needed.
