Top Microwave Repair related questions

You can, although you're not required to do so. For your microwave installation service, our Taskers might need a driller, level, stud finder, and wrench. As for microwave repairs, they'll use specific tools which will also depend on the fixes your microwave needs. But if you don't have any supplies ready, we also have some microwave technicians who can bring and use their installation and repair kit.

If you need to hang your microwave over the range or under a cabinet, it's safe to give your Tasker as least two or three hours to complete the installation, and a little longer if you need them to establish proper venting and wiring. Do take note, however, that the exact installation time will still depend on your Tasker's ability and the available tools. For a more accurate estimation, feel free to ask them directly.

Our Taskers are pretty flexible and can work on almost any type and brand of microwaves, such as Neff microwave repairs, National microwave repairs, and Belling microwave repairs. If you prefer someone who has experience with repairing a specific brand of appliance, you can visit their profile and check their skills, as well as their work history, ratings, and reviews.

Typically, if the repair is already charging you at least half the cost of your old microwave, then a replacement might be a better call. The same goes if your microwave has already surpassed the seven to the ten-year mark. But if you don't have the budget for an expensive and heavy-duty replacement, then paying less for a repair or upgrade is a more viable solution than settling to a substandard model.

Yes! Unlike regular rubbish, appliances like microwaves require a different disposal process. Book our rubbish removal services to responsibly dispose of your old microwaves that you don't intend to use again. If it is still in good working condition, you can instruct our Taskers to donate them to charities. Otherwise, they can hand it over to your local electronic recycling facilities, where they can efficiently recycle and reform them into new valuable products.

Through our platform, you'll find plenty of handymen and installers who can provide expert home repair and installation services for you. They can set up appliances in your home theatre, install electrical HVAC systems in your bedroom, or repair a broken pipe in your bathroom or kitchen. We can also help assemble new furniture, or fix any old ones you have.

What do microwave repair and installation services include?

Hire our microwave specialists for expert installation and repair of your microwave ovens. They can go to your location at your preferred time and utilise their expertise to provide the exact service you need. We have plenty of Taskers who can install almost any make model, and also carry out diagnostics and repairs, so you won't have to spend more for an expensive replacement. Here are some specific services that you can book from us:

Microwave Installation

Microwave ovens are commonly fitted over the range, tucked into upper or lower shelves, or hidden in a cabinet. If you need expert assistance to ensure efficient installation, our Taskers are more than happy to drop by and lend a helping hand. The exact process depends on the type of microwave you have and where you want to mount it. But the basics include finding studs and marking them accordingly, drilling holes to open up space for cords and venting, fitting support brackets, and mounting the appliance in place.


In case you also need help setting up your gas stove or oven, as well as establishing a gas line, we also have qualified gas fitters who can do that for you.

Microwave oven repair

Just like any other appliance, microwaves can also encounter unexpected damages and glitches that could compromise their functionality. Our microwave technicians can help troubleshoot the issues and repair them as needed. Some of the most common hiccups include broken doors and turntables, arcing sparks inside the oven, and defective capacitors that prevent the food from heating up.

Microwave control panel repair

If you are struggling with a broken, non-responsive control panel, you can hire our microwave technicians to address the problem as soon as possible. Some of the most typical causes include worn out membrane switches, damaged control boards, water or moisture penetration, or insect attacks. 

This issue is resolved by simply removing and detaching the control panel from your appliance, accessing the membrane switch, and finally replacing them. You'll have your microwave back up and running in no time!

Microwave paint peeling repair

Years after use, you might start noticing the paint peeling from inside your microwave. All you have to do is find a skilled repairer who can help you clean and repaint it. Our Taskers can help you remove the peeling paint, clean off the grime or grease, and sand them down if needed. 

Once done, they can start repainting it using safe, non-toxic formulas suitable for microwaves. If you're unsure of what paint to use, you can always ask your Tasker for advice and suggestions. Also, remember to let the paint dry and cure at least a day or two before using your appliance again.
