Dallas Microwave Repair: Signs it’s Time to Call the Professionals


Many of us take for granted what a workhorse the microwave is until it’s out of commission. When microwaves came on the scene in the 1980s, Americans rejoiced at a faster, easier way to get dinner on the table. And when your microwave isn’t working right…it’s a huge pain. Here are several signs that it might be time to call Appliance Rescue Service for Dallas microwave repair before it’s too late: 

 

Door Won’t Seal Shut

This is a problem. Without a proper seal, the food in your microwave will not cook evenly or completely. Be wary of running the microwave if the door doesn’t shut or seal properly.


Sparks are Flying

Occasionally, you might get a touch of something metallic in the microwave and it will spark for just a sec, but this should not be the norm. If there are sparks flying in your microwave, immediately open the door to stop the appliance, then unplug the device or cut power at the breaker. Do not turn the appliance back on until it has undergone professional microwave repair to avoid a fire hazard.

Chemical Free Cleaning: 2 Natural Ways to Clean a Microwave

The microwave is one of the most commonly used appliances in the kitchen, and yet many times it’s also overlooked when it comes to cleaning. At Appliance Rescue Service Dallas, we try to clean without harsh chemicals as much as possible. That’s why we wanted to bring you 2 great chemical free cleaning methods for cleaning your microwave that you may not know about:

 

1.  Lemon

Lemon is a natural cleaning agent, and a great one for cleaning the microwave! Grab a microwave safe bowl and fill it with ½-1 cup of water. Then take your lemon, cut it in half, and squeeze it into the water. Throw the lemon rinds in for good measure! And here’s a tip for helping the water not to boil over: throw in a toothpick as well!

Now, set your microwave for 3 minutes and watch the magic work! The water will boil and create steam; the steam will loosen stubborn food particles that have been stuck to the sides of your microwave. After the 3 minutes are up, let it sit for a few minutes, then remove the water/lemon mixture, and wipe down the microwave with a clean cloth or sponge. A sparkling clean microwave awaits – and it smells good too!

2.  Vinegar

Don’t have a lemon on hand? No problem! Pour in some vinegar in place of the lemon. If you don’t like that vinegary smell, you can also add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil. Follow the chemical free cleaning instructions above and voila – clean microwave!

Extend the Life of your Microwave with 3 Simple Tips

Microwaves are the workhorse of the kitchen appliances. We use them throughout the day to reheat and cook and generally forget how much we rely on them until they are broken!

 

The good news is that you can extend the life of your microwave with just a few simple changes:

 

Tip #1: Clean It Regularly

While this tip holds true for preserving the life of most things, it’s especially true of microwaves. Microwaves operate using steam and microwave waves to cook your food. When spills and food particles get left on the inside of the microwave, they interfere with the cooking process. The caked on food reduces the effectiveness of your microwave and may lead to microwave repairs. It’s also important to pay attention to the seal on the microwave door and wipe it down periodically.

 

Tip #2: Cover Food While Cooking

In the vein of tip #1, cover all food while you are cooking or reheating. Covering the food reduces the likelihood of spills and splatters, but it also helps prevent food particles from getting in the air and interfering with the microwaves ability to function. Microwave filters can get clogged with grease or food debris, one of the leading causes of microwave failure

 

Tip #3: Use Microwave Safe Dishes Only

Before putting anything in the microwave, double check to see if it is “microwave safe.” While some plastics are considered microwave safe, we do not recommend heating food in them. Some studies suggest they can break down in the microwave, unknowingly contaminating food. Others tend to melt, getting stuck to the microwave and causing permanent damage.

 

When microwave issues arise, do not attempt to take the microwave apart yourself and assess the damage. Call an experienced Dallas appliance repairman like Appliance Rescue Service for all your appliance repair needs.
