Microwaves are one of the most common appliances across the country. They allow for quick and easy heating in a fraction of the time an oven takes. They vary in style from countertop to built in to over the range microwaves and vary widely in price as well. If you have a more expensive microwave its generally worth it to have it repaired rather than replaced when something goes wrong. The most common issues to effect microwaves are:
If your microwave wont turn on then first check your power source and ensure that the door is closed properly. If this doesn't solve your problem then the next most likely culprit is the fuse.

If this doesn't fix the issue then it could be something more complicated and your best bet is to get a professional repair.
