The Applianceman: Expert Microwave Repair Service!

Call The Applianceman Service for Microwave oven repair in Columbus, Ohio! A microwave oven (commonly referred to as a microwave) is an electric oven that heats and cooks food by exposing it to electromagnetic radiation in the microwave frequency range. This induces polar molecules in the food to rotate and produce thermal energy in a process known as dielectric heating. Microwave ovens heat foods quickly and efficiently because excitation is fairly uniform in the outer 25–38 mm (1–1.5 inches) of a homogeneous, high water content food item. A microwave needs to be repaired and maintained by highly-skilled, experienced technicians. The Applianceman Service will alway prioritize our customer's microwave repair in Columbus, OH!

Does My Microwave Need Repaired?

It's crucial to entrust microwave repairs to experienced professionals like The Applianceman due to the appliance's electrical complexities and potential safety risks. Safety protocols, proper diagnostics, and adherence to manufacturer guidelines are essential for effective and safe microwave repairs.

Common Microwave Problems

  1. Not Heating: The microwave runs, but food remains cold, indicating issues with the magnetron, diode, or capacitor.

  2. Sparks or Arcing: Sparks inside the microwave suggest issues with the waveguide cover, paint peeling, or metal components.

  3. Turntable Not Rotating: The turntable may not spin due to a faulty motor, coupler, or roller guide.

  4. Unusual Noises: Strange noises like buzzing or grinding may indicate problems with the motor, stirrer blade, or other internal components.

  5. Door Issues: Microwave not starting because the door isn't properly closing or the door switch is faulty.

  6. Control Panel Malfunctions: Buttons not responding or control panel errors could signal circuit board issues or faulty touchpad membrane.

  7. Uneven Heating: Food cooking unevenly might result from issues with the magnetron or waveguide cover.

  8. Burnt Odor or Smoke: A burning smell or smoke indicates a severe issue, potentially related to electrical faults or component damage.

  9. Tripping Circuit Breaker: Overloading circuits or electrical faults in the microwave might lead to tripped breakers.

  10. Timer or Display Problems: Issues with the digital display, clock, or timer might indicate electronic control board failures.

How Microwaves are Repaired?

  1. Diagnosis: A technician examines the microwave to identify the specific issue(s) causing the malfunction, often using specialized tools and diagnostic equipment.

  2. Safety Precautions: Before starting any repair, the technician ensures the microwave is disconnected from the power source to prevent electrical hazards.

  3. Replacement of Faulty Components: Based on the diagnosis, the technician replaces malfunctioning parts such as the magnetron, diode, capacitor, motor, waveguide cover, door switches, or control panel components.

  4. Testing: After replacing components, the technician performs tests to ensure the microwave functions properly, checking for heating efficiency, turntable rotation, and control panel responsiveness.

  5. Adjustments and Calibration: If necessary, the technician may make adjustments to the microwave's settings, recalibrating components to ensure optimal performance.

  6. Safety Checks: After repairs, the technician conducts safety checks to verify that all components are properly installed, and the microwave operates safely without any potential hazards.

  7. Final Inspection: The technician performs a final inspection to confirm that the microwave functions as expected and meets safety standards.

Hands down the best microwave repair service in Columbus!

Great experience! During the initial call they asked about the specific problem we were having to make sure they would have the most likely needed repair parts. We got a call the day before to confirm the appointment and actually called the morning of to offer a visit BEFORE the scheduled window. Once at our house, our tech, Karl was super friendly and efficient. He diagnosed and demonstrated the problem in a few minutes and made the necessary repair in less than an hour. Would definitely use again and recommend.

Keep your microwave working with 5 star service!

Andrew came out to visit us twice; one for an inspection to evaluate the problem and the other to install the custom pieces we had ordered. Our wolf over needed repair and he was the man for the job! He worked with our kitchen in the midst of renovation, found ways around problems with a great attitude and was very respectful! He was transparent with all the cost and what cost was necessary vs. desired. I would definitely recommend Andrew and Applianceman Service!

Best freezer microwave repair service in Columbus, Ohio! A+++

Positive: Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value. A Big Shout-Out to The Appliance, great company, they have been looking after my fridge freezer for years. A freezer failed recently, of course this was a Friday afternoon with the prospect of the contents thawing. A helpful call and they were there with a hard to get part. Prompt, efficient, courteous and a fair price. I could not ask for more. 5 Stars.

Five star microwave repair recommendation! Best in Columbus!

Today I had Carl visit to install a water tank reservoir and evaporation tube in my GE fridge. Carl was professional, extremely knowledgeable and provided excellent service in explaining everything he was doing. After the repair was complete, the fridge kept throwing an error code indicating possible surge but Carl stuck with it and stayed until everything was working. I appreciate the level of care with this service and will be recommending and retaining Applianceman going forward. I couldn't be happier, thank you!

Professional and high quality microwave repair service technicians!

Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value. After reading the reviews, both positive and negative, I called and Mike the owner answered and we set the appointment. Very curteous and professional. Paul came out to do the repair and was friendly, professional and informative and humorous. Our 4 year old dryer needed a new mother board. He ordered it and even called his office to make sure it was ordered today since it was past 3pm deadline to order since we have 2 grand kids living with us and loads of laundry to do. This was Wed and Friday as he promised he came out and fixed it. Worth every dollar I paid. I will use them again!! Next time I will not buy a Whirlpool washer and dryer I will spend a little more for a Speed Queen set!!

Exceptional microwave repair service! Great for all home owners!

Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness. As a builder I understand it’s very hard to find good quality work AND good customer service skills.... I’ve worked with the service tech DOUG twice now and he has both of those things. I go and supervise while he works on various things for my homeowners- he’s been enjoyable to speak with and highly knowledgeable both times. He is very polite to my homeowners and relates to them so much so that I’ve had 2 comments about how nice he was. I will not be using any other company any time soon. Highly recommend!
