AAPPLIANCE CONNECTION
We purchased a gas range with an over-the-range microwave to replace our old and broken range/microwave combo. The sales person (Sally) was great. She was extremely helpful. Upon delivery the installation crew could not install the microwave due to the lack of an electrical line for the microwave. They installed the range and took the microwave back to the store. The installation went smoothly and the crew was very professional. The next day I purchased a range hood to replace the microwave. They were able to install it the same day. A different crew came to install the range hood. They were very professional and cleaned up before they left. They do have a restocking fee for returned items but we weren't charged it due to another customer purchasing the microwave we returned. This is our first experience with the Appliance Connection and was very impressed with the service. Will highly recommend to friends.

ORIGINALLY, SEARS SENT OUT TWO PEOPLE TO REPAIR MY MICROWAVE. THEY DID SO BUT IN THE PROCESS LEFT A WIRE LOOSE THAT CAUSED THE MICROWAVE TO STOP WORKING WITHIN A DAY. THE SECOND TIME, SEAR SENT OUT ONE PERSON WHO HAD DIFFICULTY REMOVING THE MICROWAVE BY HIMSELF. ULTIMATELY, THE OVEN WAS FIXED.

I got a deal through Angie's list, my microwave started turning on when you'd open the door.  They were super responsive with scheduling me for an appointment and called to let me know they were on their way.  The gentleman who did the repairs was able to diagnose the problem quickly and thankfully he had the necessary parts to fix my microwave.  Everything is working again normally.  It was a tad pricey, however, getting the repair was much cheaper than buying a new microwave.

I was assigned this company by Lowe's to install a new microwave in place of a very old one.  The service guy was on time and friendly. The project was much more difficult than I am sure he expected because he had to take out an almost 30-year old microwave which was put in very differently from today's.  He had to take several pieces off the old one to even figure out how to get it out.  After he installed the bracket and put the microwave in place, I saw that it was tilted a little forward.  He took the microwave back out and we figured out that a piece of wood holding the shelf above was in the way.  He took out this piece and replaced it with metal brackets.  The microwave was still tilted so he put a wood shim on the wall to be able to move the bracket down -- Corian behind the stove went all the way up to the bottom of the old microwave, so it wasn't just simply moving the bracket down. Finally, it was all in place.  Throughout this whole process the installer was extremely patient and definitely seemed to be focused on my being satisfied with the install.  I appreciated all the unexpected extra effort required for this job and would definitely want to hire him again. It was well worth the cost of installation.

Excellent! This guy knew just what to do, and what to look for. It took him no time to take this apart, find what was wrong and to get it fixed. He was in and out in under 45 minutes. Thanks, I highly recommend and would bring him back for future repairs.

Our over the range microwave unexpectedly stop working during the week. Pius took my call on a Saturday, and we arranged a time for him to come the next day. He arrived within the agreed upon window on Sunday and was very professional and friendly. He clearly explained what needed to be done and repaired the microwave on the spot. Would definitely hire again.

Great. Called promptly, came on time, diagnosed the problem, tried to convince me to save money by replacing instead of repairing, and then did a meticulous job repairing everything when I chose that option.

The company made a house call to assess the job, ordered the part and repaired the microwave to my satisfaction within the space of 2 weeks.

ATracy's Appliance
He suggested I change the water filter on the fridge before trying to fix anything since there was water coming to the line - that did the trick. He diagnosed the microwave but suggested based on the cost to repair I should think about whether I wanted to just replace the microwave since it was 9 years old. He even researched the cost of a replacement to give me a comparison. He replaced the heating element in my cooktop and now all 3 burners heat. I appreciated his honesty on the microwave and fridge, both of which ended up saving money.

It's a Jenn Air built-in microwave.  The controls all still worked, but the microwave would not turn on and cook food. Bonnie returned my weekend call on Monday and was very polite and helpful in scheduling an appointment for later that week. The technician called before he stopped in (as promised).  He quickly diagnosed the problem with the microwave and fixed it with parts he had on hand.  He was polite and efficient. I couldn't be more happy with how this repair went.  It also cost less than I expected.  (We did get a 10% internet/Angie's List discount.)

AArva Appliance Service
Microwave functioned again, although only for a few days. Both we and ARVA knew that it might be a temporary fix - sometimes it works, sometimes not. The $59 charge was applicable to a new microwave from ARVA. When the problem returned ARVA responded to our call and said they had been in contact with the manufacturer - SAMSUNG - and that SAMSUNG would repair what was a manufacturing defect. This information was not available on line - despite many complaints from purchasers of this model. It took several phone calls to different offices of SAMSUNG but they are now scheduled to come and repair the microwave. In sum, ARVA was on time, courteous, professional and, ultimately, most helpful.

The technitian checked the unit and indicated that the problem might be with the unit's front panel. After finding out that the piece was not available anymore he recommended it to be replaced. I was charged only for the basic rate for the visit. Although I was frustrated that the unit could not be repaired, I was very impressed with the professionalism and commitment of the technitian and of the company to provide the best alternative for the problem.

First time I had them out was in Nov. 2012.  He saved my microwave with replacement parts.  They were fantastic. This last time I had a small problem and they charged me for the service call. I will stay with them for my appliance repair. They are professional and courteous.

This was a very professional service! GE Services had initially told me this fix could not be done for less than $500. I was about to buy a new one, when I found Expert Appliance Service. He made an appt, showed up on time with an advance call as agreed upon and fixed the microwave right away. Based on the description I had given him on the phone he had all the right parts with him. It saved me a lot of money. I'd use him again anytime!!!

CSears Appliance Repair
Recommended repairs too expensive $600 (ludicrous) and could not guarantee would work.(that through me for a loop). Tech recommended buy a stand alone microwave. Additionally not quite sure didn't damage door switch during diagnosis because worked before he fiddled with it and it is part of repair recommended.

AM & M APPLIANCE SALES & SERVICE INC
Pricing was excellent, salesperson was knowledgeable and helpful. Pre-delivery and removal of existing appliances was smooth and painless. Installation was clean, quick, on-time, and professional. The technicians had to deal with narrow doors and long walks between their truck and our condo, but they just kept rolling along in an efficient manner. After installation they went over all of the operating procedures and settings for all of the devices. Modern appliances really have a lot of choices. All-in-all a delightful experience from the first moment on the phone, through the showroom, and the delivery and installation. I would highly recommend M & M appliances for the entire experience.

Found through Angie's List. My first call went directly to the owner who also did the work. I reached him fiirst try and had a visit the same day, exactly on schedule with a call ahead to make sure I knew he was on his way.  Totally professional, candid, honest in his assessment, and clear in his plan of action. He had to order a part which came in quickly and he promptly returned to finish the job. Very fair pricing. Would not take payment until job complete. Honest, competent, and personable service.

What microwave parts tend to fail?

Four parts fail more than any others on microwave ovens:

  • The control panel or touchpad — Nothing you do has an effect; the microwave returns no responses or nonsensical ones
  • The magnetron — Your food is not hot after the microwave "operates," because the magnetron is not producing heat-penetrating microwaves
  • The transformer — Your microwave may start and stop
  • The door switch — The safety lockout sends faulty signals to the control panel, causing the microwave oven to intermittently cut out

Three additional parts are also common culprits, but not so often as the above: fuses, fan motors and a tray that fails to rotate. 

All these repairs involve diagnosing the trouble spot, carefully removing the old part and replacing it with a suitable working part. 

How much does microwave repair cost?

Microwave repair costs range from $120 to $147, with an average cost of $133 as of 2013. A service call charge can go as high as $75. 

For such as small footprint in most people's kitchens, a microwave oven is dense with parts. The interconnected systems depend on signals from the control panel, but since they generate potentially dangerous microwave radiation, microwave ovens include safety switches on door latches that shut down the microwave if the door is forced open during operation. Homeowners do not usually notice the particular part that stops working, they notice that the microwave either does not operate at all or does not heat food properly.
