Types of Microwave Repair
Microwave repair includes many different types ranging from microwave not heating to microwave no power. Most of these repairs can be done on the spot. Here are some of the possible types of microwave repair.
Microwave Not Heating
This is the most common issue that most people face with their microwave. There are many reasons why the microwave is not heating. For most cases, the microwave seems to be running normally; turntable is turning, light bulb is lighted and count down timer is counting down. However, when the food is supposedly ready, it is not heated at all. The fault may lie in one of the following.
Magnetron is faulty
High voltage capacitor is faulty
High voltage transformer is faulty
Fuse is blown
No Sign Of Power
Having no sign of power to your microwave is very frustrating. LED panel not lighting up and the internal light bulb not lighting up are some symptoms of a microwave with no sign of power. Try plugging the microwave into a different power socket to confirm that it is a microwave failure.
Fuse is blown
Wall socket has no incoming power
Sparks Can Be Seen
Having sparks in the microwave is common and it does not necessarily mean that your microwave is malfunctioning. However, most people panic the moment they see sparks in the microwave. Conversely, one should remain calm and switch off the microwave immediately. Sparks in the microwave may be due to one of the following reasons.
There are metal utensils inside the microwave when turned on
The cover of the wave guide is damaged
The high voltage diode might have been shorted
Food splatters may also be the cause of spark
Microwave Turntable Not Rotating
When the microwave is turned on and heating, the turntable is supposed to rotate simultaneously. If your microwave turntable is not rotating, it might be due to the following reasons.
Turntable motor is faulty
The drive bushing of the turntable motor may have been worn off
Control Panel Not Responsive
All microwaves come with an electronic control panel. This control panel is the platform for all users to communicate with the microwave. Unfortunately, these control panels might become unresponsive at times. This may be due to prolong usage or normal wear and tear of aged product.
