Although you may feel DIY microwave repair is the way to go, it may wind up costing you more than you think. While you may have thought about this the last time you had a problem with your microwave, GTA Appliance Repair is hoping that you relied on the expertise of a highly experienced and knowledgeable technician. A lack of experience could cause additional problems and put your health at risk. The ensuing costs involved with either of these just aren’t worth it.
We cannot stress the importance of contacting one of our factory-trained and certified technicians out to your Vaughn home to perform preventative maintenance and repairs on your microwave oven. There are three critical variables to consider before starting your DIY microwave repair:
The appliance itself – If you decide on doing the repairs yourself, you really have no idea how your microwave will work. The average microwave oven is a computerized device that can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years, depending on its type and how well you take care of it. If you don’t have the experience, knowledge, and tools to repair the appliance, you may wind up having to purchase a new one. You could be doing more harm than good instead of relying on a technician to do the job correctly.
The costs involved – While you may decide on the DIY route to save money, most repairs are surprisingly affordable. Many people think that the slightest malfunction is grounds for purchasing a new microwave. And yet in many cases, a simple, inexpensive repair is all that is required to get yours working again. Although you may enjoy a considerable sense of accomplishment with a DIY repair, the slightest misdiagnosis or mistake could cost you more than what you saved initially.
Most importantly your health – Just in case you’re not aware of this, microwave ovens use electromagnetic, non-ionizing radiation to cook foods and reheat leftovers. This is the same type of radiation that cell phones use. Despite the technology involved, this is not something for the inexperienced person to handle. Consider the health dangers of using your cell phone excessively, much less having to deal with electricity as well. You really do not want to jeopardize your safety, as well as the well-being of your family?
Unless you have the experience, skill, and training that an appliance repair technician has, you’re better off leaving it up to someone who specializes in this area.
