Before running to the nearest store to buy a new microwave, take a few minutes to check the following: Have you checked the circuit breaker or fuses for the electrical input? Did you double-check if the device was really plugged in? Is the door properly closed? Your problem can be as simple as that. If, however, the problem persists, the control or display system may be defective. Contact one of our technicians and we will take care of the problem.
The first step is consulting your microwave user’s guide: you can find most error codes in it and can be fix in no time. You can’t find the guide? Perhaps there is an web version on the manufacturer’s website. The model you own no longer exists? The error code does not appear in the manual? Get an appointment with our team of specialists. It may be a bigger problem that requires more advanced knowledge.
If your microwave is not heating properly, it may be a simple problem … Have you typed the cooking time right? Is the door properly closed? Microwaves are equipped with thermal safety devices and electronic sensors that make the power and heat vary. Sometimes these sensors are used, malfunctioning or “misaligned”.
In order to function properly, microwaves require an independent circuit with a minimum power of 15 amperes. A microwave that overheats can be caused by a weak electrical circuit, or the circuit is overused by too many electronic devices. It’s also possible that the high power system is defective. In this case, let professionals check your microwave. We will analyze your problem properly in order to properly repair your device.
There may be numerous causes that may cause strange noises from your microwave: the system that operates the turntable may be poorly assembled, the internal cooling system or the wave power system may be defective, or the fans may be filled with dust. If the noise persists, visit our store and we will find the solution to your problem.
