Linfoot Repairs to the Rescue

Microwaves are essential in our kitchens, making quick meals a breeze. But when they malfunction, panic sets in. At Linfoot Repairs, we’ve got the expertise to handle various microwave types, from combination units to drawer units produced by Sharp.

Common Microwave Issues and Solutions

The most frequent microwave problem is a faulty door switch. Sparks created during door opening can lead to high resistance, causing electronic or mechanical failures. To avoid this, always press pause or cancel before opening the door.

Safety First with Combination Units

For combination units, we use safe tools from AllDolly in California for efficient and secure removal. Handling appliances with care is crucial, considering their cost. Microwaves, with capacitors holding high voltage, should only be repaired by professionals due to safety risks.

Considerations for Replacement

Microwaves are relatively affordable to replace, starting at $290 with a one-year warranty. For over-the-range or countertop units, research replacement costs before opting for repairs. At Linfoot Repairs, we prioritize your money, even if it means recommending replacement over repairs.

Specialized Microwave Units We Handle

Our expertise extends to combination wall oven units and built-in microwaves. While rare, convection-featured microwaves over the range can cost around $2,000. Many homeowners, after discussions, opt for more budget-friendly replacements without the convection feature.

Understanding Microwave Ovens

Before you get your microwave repaired, it's good to understand how it works.

Microwaves work by using electricity to generate waves of energy that cook your food. The heart of this process is a part called a magnetron. Inside every microwave, there's also a high-voltage capacitor. This part stores a lot of electricity, helping the magnetron do its job. Microwaves have changed a lot over the years. 

They used to be quite expensive, but now, you can find many affordable options. 

Some microwaves even have special features like convection cooking, which lets them work like ovens. 

Dangers of DIY Microwave Repairs 

Fixing a microwave by yourself can be risky that’s why we recommend you let us fix it for you.

The main danger is the high-voltage capacitors inside. These can hold some voltage and keep their charge even after unplugging the microwave. 

This stored electricity can be extremely dangerous. There have been serious accidents and even deaths when people have tried to fix their microwaves and come in contact with these capacitors​​​​. That’s why letting a pro handle your microwave repair is so important. We know how to work safely and can fix your microwave without the risks.

When to Repair vs. Replace Your Microwave 

Deciding whether to fix or replace your microwave often comes down to cost.

If your microwave costs less than $400, buying a new one might be cheaper than paying for a repair. 

This is especially true for older models. However, if your microwave has unique features like convection cooking, fixing it might be worth it despite the higher cost. 

These features add value and can make replacement more expensive, sometimes by about $1500. So, for simple microwave repair, consider the price of your microwave. 

For fancier models, repairing could save you money in the long run.

Our Approach to Safe Microwave Repair 

Our microwave repair technicians are trained to safely discharge capacitors and manage high-voltage parts. 

We follow strict guidelines to ensure that capacitors, which can hold a dangerous charge even when the microwave is unplugged, are correctly discharged before any repair work begins. 

Our team uses the right tools and follows proven procedures to avoid any risk of electric shock. We're committed to complying with all safety standards, using the proper equipment, and ensuring every repair is done safely and effectively. Your safety and satisfaction are our top priorities.
