I mistakenly used timed cook instead of the timers and the microwave oven was empty. It stopped working completely. Can it be repaired or is it time to buy a new microwave?
Hello Sir or Madam and thanks for choosing the Appliance category.

  • Does stop working completely mean the display is dead?
  • What about the interior light when you open the door?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The display is dead and there is no light when I open the door.

  • If there is no power to anything, the problem is easily repaired by replacing the fuse inside the unit or the electrical wiring.
  • Do you have a meter to trace where the power disappears?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I don't have a meter to check where the power disappears. Would it be worth it to have a service call for the microwave to be repaired?
