Reviews of Microwave Repair Specialists Near You

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.

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.

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.

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.

Peaco Appliance Service
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.

Came and diagnosed the problem. Ordered the part. Called and set up an appointment to fix it when the part came in. He kept in touch every step of the way. Came during the time window as stated. Very, very happy with his work. Would absolutely hire again.

AJ Appliance Repair, LLC
The owner was very responsive, kind, respectful and professional. I was worried I would have to throw away my microwave to get a new one, but actually he fixed it pretty fast and explained step by step. He also offered to repair my dishwasher. I definitely recommend AJ Appliance for your repair needs. Price is very affordable and you'll get exceptional service.

Arva 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 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.

All American Appliance Service Inc
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.)

Titan Appliance Pro
Exceptional service. Titan Appliance Pro technicians were determined and persistent problem-solvers and, hurray, they fixed our wall oven today. The technicians were first rate, thoughtful and committed to getting the job done. Their work saved us more than $2000.

Wooten Appliance
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.

Tracy'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.

Expert Appliance Services
We?ve had several problems with our microwave oven since we installed it five years ago. The problems were mostly circuit card-related, which we just found out could have been caused by electrical surges. Another problem developed recently, this one with the turntable which we thought was circuit card-related. We found Expert Appliance Service on Angie?s List, the source we use for all service providers. We contacted them via email on a weekend for these non-emergency repairs. They responded the same day and we set up an appointment. They diagnosed the problem (mechanical), ordered the parts, and returned the following week to complete the repairs. Expert Appliance is a professional company in all respects ? technically competent, punctual, fair, and polite. We plan to use them for all future appliance repairs for our home and rental properties.

Expert Appliance Services
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.

It went well. Daryl is very professional and friendly. He explained everything to me and was done promptly. I would recommend him to anyone who needs to repair appliance. If he can't do it, he will let you know. I think he is very trustworthy professional.
- Karen C....
Arva Appliance Service
Arva did me a tremendous favor by telling me that it would cost almost as much to repair a counter-top microwave as it would to buy new. I so much appreciated Arva's professional honesty and especially that they did not waste my time or money! I will certainly call on them in the future.
- Debbie L....
All American Appliance Service Inc
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.

However, we may have pros in another category that can help with your project.

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.
