The first microwave ovens first appeared in the 1930’s and were considered a modern miracle of technology at the time. These time-saving appliances operate at roughly 3,000 volts and produce electromagnetic, non-iodizing radiation. Needless to say, the microwave oven had become an important appliance in our everyday lives. Regardless of the issue you’re having, people living in Brantford, or Woodbridge can take advantage of the microwave repair services we provide at Top Choice Appliance Repair .
DIY vs. Professional Repair
You may be thinking that it is an easy job to take apart the appliance and put it back again. After all it isn’t rocket science. Although DIY microwave repair may sound tempting as far as saving time and money are concerned, this is a task that is best left in the hands of a professional appliance technician. Here are three reasons why this is the case:
Cost factors – we offer some of the most competitive appliance repair rates in the GTA and southern Ontario. By entrusting Top Choice Appliance Repair with the maintenance and service of your microwave oven, it will cost you considerably less than replacing it. But if you’re inexperienced at repairing this appliance, it could cost you considerably more to fix your mistakes. In addition to this, you could opt for one of our microwave repair and preventative maintenance plans which will extend the appliance’s lifespan and save you additional money.
Damage to the microwave – We don’t want to sound like an alarmist, but what about the microwave? What kind of shape will it be in if you do the repair work? Microwave ovens are a marvel of computerization so the use of standard hand tools in the wrong hands could be potentially disastrous. By attempting DIY microwave repair instead of calling Top Choice Appliance Repair out to your Brantford, Waterloo, or Woodbridge home, you’re likely to wind up with a large paperweight. Your lack of experience in this area could result in replacement costs whereas a professional could have fixed it for less.
Most importantly, your health – first of all, we need to be very clear about one critical aspect or issue. Microwave ovens cook food using radiation which is the same type of waves that cell phones operate with. Granted, this is useful technology, but this could be very dangerous in the hands of an inexperienced DIY’er. You should stop and think for a moment about the relationship between excessive cell phone usage and certain medical conditions before considering DIY microwave repair. Even when you consider that microwaves are powered by electricity, this should be enough to think about.
When you take all of the above into consideration, there are too many risks involved with DIY repair, especially when it’s your microwave oven that we are discussing.
