Question about Microwave Ovens
This is 2 years old. We dont hear a power surge sound and although the power is on high it seem like its running at 20% power. Everything else works except the power is very low. Can I replace the PCB or another part or just trash it.
Galaxy, eh? I wonder if that is the same as the Kenmore model 721.80002401...
Low cooking power usually means you have a bad magnetron.
It should have a warranty of 5-9 years on the magnetron itself. That means that you'll have to pay for labor, but the manufacturer will cover the cost of the magnetron.
Labor might be $75 for a home visit and $75-90 to do the work.
You can save a lot by taking to the manufacturer-authorized service shop yourself. They may charge a $25 diagnosis fee to check it out, and apply that to the labor if you proceed with the repairs.
The first step is to grab your manual and contact the manufacturer.
