Microwave Longevity Tips from CLICK HERE!

Microwaves have average lifetime expectancies. Maintaining your microwave properly can extend it's lifetime indefinitely.
  1. If you have to do any kind of repair or maintenance on the microwave, make sure to unplug it from the power supply.
  2. Use a properly grounded outlet.
  3. Use a surge protector to protect the microwave from power surges as a surge can damage sensitive internal equipment.
  4. Some newer microwaves have built in surge protection, and you should take advantage of these appliances whenever you can.
  5. Clean the interior often to help ensure good microwave oven performance. Those food particles left inside still absorb the microwave energy and can cause interior burns to your microwave. Mild soap and water works well. We also carry microwave specific cleaners in the cleaning section of our parts finder.
  6. Wipe down the outside touch panels with a damp, soapy cloth. Rinse the cloth with fresh water and re-wipe to remove leftover soap.
  7. Do not heat food with foil wrapping. You may use paper towels or microwave safe lids to cover foods.
  8. Never use metal containers to heat foods in the microwave.
  9. Never run the microwave empty. You run the risk of damaging the magnetron and other components from feedback.

Microwave ovens are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.

They set and enforce rules of performance to assure radiation emissions do not pose a hazard to public health.

Proper use and maintenance, as recommended by the user manual, is an important part of microwave oven safety.
