You have found a movie that you will enjoy, and you decided a hot bag of popcorn will go great with the movie. You throw a bag of popcorn into the microwave, but nothing happens. One of your favorite home appliances has suddenly stopped working. You are not going through a crisis, but it can certainly feel like it.
It’s not a crisis, but it is a big inconvenience. We depend on microwaves for more than we probably will realize or admit. So it can be easy to take the microwave’s operation for granted when it stops working as it normally does. If you have any problems with the microwave’s noise, operation, or smell, this can be a big indication that some of the microwave’s parts and components are failing. Many of us are not trained in microwave repair, so it will be wise to call a microwave appliance repair technician to get your microwave working again.
Your Own Troubleshooting
It can be part of human nature for many of us to try to troubleshoot and repair an appliance on or own. Since microwaves use such high voltage, this can lead to electric shock, serious injuries, and even death. Before anyone wants to take a look at an electrical appliance such as a microwave, it should be unplugged before it is even touched.
If there are any noises such as buzzing sounds, rattling sounds, banging, etc., this could mean a number of things. Sometimes there can be some food and other debris that cannot find its way out of the turntable. If you have cleaned the turntable countless times and it does not end the problem, then there could be a problem with the capacitor, power diode, or something else. Now this could mean you should replace the microwave. However, you will not know what the problem is until you call a repair technician.
If you smell any odors such as burned wires or other smells that makes you think something is melting, then some of your electrical components are failing. You should not attempt to troubleshoot these problems on your own. You can go with the option of contacting a trained repair technician in order to save your microwave.
