Popcorn, instant coffee, those perfectly melted M&Ms—none of this would be possible without your trusty microwave. Granted, you can pick up a cheap microwave these days for around $100. Maybe that sounds easier or even more affordable than getting yours repaired. But what if you have a top of the line model, one that’s been discontinued but fits your kitchen cabinet perfectly or what if it’s chef-approved and has stuck with you through thick and thin re-heated pizza slices?
When it comes to microwave repair, sometimes the fixes are easy and sometimes they’re nearly brain surgery. Only you can decide if it’s best to go for the repair or spring for a new model. At Peter’s Appliances, we understand the conundrum and can help you make an informed decision. Prior to any repairs, our technicians offer a free estimate and a clear explanation of what’s needed.
Not all microwaves are created equally. Some of them are worth fixing, while others will make excellent scrap metal.
Waiting for the Ding
Seemingly simple machines, microwaves actually revolutionized cooking in the mid century. However, for such a little and affordable appliance, they can sure pack a punch. It took you a while to learn the ropes of your microwave, to find out that 46 seconds was perfect for your reheating your morning cocoa or that microwave dinners really do better on the “frozen veggie” setting than the one that was made for them.
Plus, if you have a family that relies heavily on the microwave, having little ones who understand how to work the microwave is a huge feat. Are you really ready for everyone to re-learn a new system? What if the new microwave doesn’t complement your kitchen décor as well as this one? And what if you can never figure out how to change the clock settings?
Good microwaves are built to last, but still need some TLC from time to time. It’s possible that fixing your faithful microwave is actually more cost effective than giving it the boot.
