Question about Microwave Ovens
Microwave ovens can be worth fixing IF the interior is in good condition, the door seal is not corroded or damaged, and there is no rust around the base. If your Microwave is more than a couple of years old, it's magnetron tube probably burned out, and possibly blew a rectifier and fuse in the process. If it's newer than that it may just be a fuse...which would be much cheaper to fix.
Try to get it checked at a shop where they specialize in Microwave Oven repairs, so you can get an accurate diagonsis of EVERYTHING it needs before you commit to the repair. It will probably cost more than half the price of a new one if the magnetron needs to be replaced, so you might prefer to just get a new one, unless it's in good shape and you really like it.
Good luck, and I hope this is helpful!!
You've reminded me that my wife wants me to get our Microwave fixed. I guess I'll work on it tonight.
