Top Microwave Repair related questions
Do I need to provide my own tools or equipment for my microwave repair or installation service?
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.
How long will it take to install my microwave?
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.
What microwave brands can Airtasker help me with?
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.
How do I know if my microwave needs a repair or replacement?
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.
Can a Tasker help me get rid of my old microwave?
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.

Microwave oven repair
Just like any other appliance, microwaves can also encounter unexpected damages and glitches that could compromise their functionality.

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!

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.
