Microwave Repair in Imperial Beach

Microwave malfunctions are quite common among appliance users. And if such a problem occurs, you should not try to fix the problem yourself, but rather contact Chula Vista Appliance Repair Center which provides Microwave repair in Imperial Beach, CA.

If you notice a microwave malfunction, you should only take on microwave repairs yourself if you understand how to do it. If you have no idea in this area - do not take the risk, call a specialist. After all, self-repair can be much more expensive.

A couple of simple rules for microwave services that everyone should be aware of:

  • Never use the microwave if the door doesn't close tightly. 
  • If you are going to diagnose the problem yourself, you should do it with the appliance disconnected from the mains.
  • If it is necessary to replace the parts, use only quality parts for the microwave, and preferably original if possible.
  • If there are problems with the operation of the blower, you should not use the microwave.
  • Put a container of water in the chamber before the specialist starts to diagnose the malfunction.

Frequently occurring microwave oven breakdowns 

The high voltage fuse has blown.

This is the most common problem with which users go to the service center. As a sign of this, the microwave will not turn on and will not respond to pressing the buttons on its panel.

Note, before you can perform a diagnosis, you need to discharge the high voltage capacitor, then remove the protective cover attached to the screws. Then, using an ammeter, check which voltage is in the line filter. If the fuse blows, it must be replaced with a new one.

Difficulties in the operation of the magnetron

It is worth talking about such a problem if your microwave has stopped heating food. To begin with, carefully inspect the internal walls of the appliance. If you do not find any mechanical damage, you will have to remove the plate, which is located on the left side of the compartment. After removing it, perform cleaning, for this purpose a weak solution of alcohol is used. Having carried out the cleaning properly, you can start checking the part. If you find a blackened or burned place, you need a complete replacement.

But why did it burn out and how to fix the problem?

The thing is that many users ignore the rules prescribed in the instruction manual and do not use a special lid during cooking. Accordingly, some products splash all over the chamber, and this leads to soaking of the mica, and subsequently to its burnout. 

The backlight in the cooking chamber is not working

Typically, the backlight is triggered when you open the door and when the appliance is running. If it does not work, you need to check the bulb, it can burn out, replacing it with a new corrected problem. Very rarely, there may be a malfunction in the backlight itself. In the case where the backlight is out of order, it is worth contacting a master.

A fuse has blown

This most often happens when there is a power surge in the electrical system. Replace the blown fuse, and the microwave will work again. If this does not help, you should look for the cause in a diode or transformer.

The plate does not rotate or rotates unevenly

Clean the rollers, if this does not help, then you should check whether the microwave plate motor works, if it is burned out, replace it with a new one.

Microwave fan stopped working

The device turns on or off by itself, the problem is in the ventilation, or rather in its absence. To fix the breakdown, perform a complete cleaning of the cooling grilles and regular ducts, then start the microwave again.

Appliance is not working

Check the outlet, plug, fuse, and cable. If all this work, look for the cause in the diode or transformer. 

The microwave does not turn off

It can be a problem that the appliance itself does not turn off or respond to pressing buttons, and you can only fix it by unplugging the cord from the outlet. This is usually due to a malfunction in the door micro-switches, there are several of them. You can only determine this by disassembling the unit completely and checking the extremities. You don't have to do this yourself, there are trained people for that
