Although DIY projects can often save you a lot in the financial department, when it comes to electrical appliances, it is best to consider hiring a professional for extensive repairs. If your microwave has stopped working altogether, it may be that a circuit breaker has become worn out, which would require some technical experience to rewire. If your tray won’t spin, this could be a simple fix such as a new turntable which could be a much easier fix.
- Small issues such as turntable difficulties may be able to be addressed at home.
- Since microwaves are made up of electrical wiring, trying to tackle complex problems can be dangerous.
- If a short circuit is suspected due to loss of power, it is probably more affordable to replace the appliance.
“Like all appliances, microwaves have their trouble spots and aren’t made to last forever. If yours is acting up, follow this advice to know what to do and what to expect.”
