Microwave oven repair service

Appliance Care of Atlanta team specializes in microwave oven repair services, addressing a wide range of problems that commonly affect microwaves. From faulty heating elements to electrical issues, we have the expertise to diagnose and fix your appliance promptly.
Our microwave repair service spectrum includes:
  • Heating element repair. One of the most prevalent issues is a microwave that fails to heat food or heats it unevenly. This problem can stem from a faulty magnetron, capacitor, or diode. Our technicians inspect these components to identify the culprit and replace the malfunctioning parts with the new one.
  • Sparking fix. If you notice sparks inside your microwave, it is a cause for concern. Sparks can result from a variety of issues, such as damaged waveguide covers, defective stirrer motors, or worn-out high-voltage diodes. We assess the internal components, ensuring they are in optimal condition to prevent hazardous sparking.
  • Turntable malfunctions repair. A malfunctioning turntable can disrupt the even distribution of heat within the microwave. This problem often arises due to issues with the turntable motor or the roller guide. Our experts inspect these components, ensuring smooth rotation and uniform heating for your meals.
  • Unusual noises fix. Strange noises, such as buzzing, humming, or grinding sounds, indicate internal issues. These noises might be caused by a malfunctioning cooling fan, faulty magnetron, or worn-out drive motor. Our technicians conduct a thorough examination, pinpointing the source of the noise and replacing the necessary components to restore quiet operation.
  • Control panel problems repair. If the control panel of your microwave becomes unresponsive or displays error codes, it can disrupt your cooking experience. Control panel issues may arise from damaged membrane switches, faulty control boards, or wiring problems. We perform meticulous diagnostics to identify the faulty components and provide precise repairs, ensuring seamless operation.
  • Door seal repair.  A malfunctioning door seal or latch compromises the safety and efficiency of your microwave. It can lead to heat leakage and inefficient cooking. Our technicians inspect the door seal, hinges, and latches, repairing or replacing any damaged parts to maintain a secure and airtight closure.
If your microwave exhibits any unusual behavior or fails to function properly, it's time to seek professional help. Delaying repairs can worsen the problem, leading to costlier solutions.
