You might be surprised to learn that microwave ovens were first introduced onto the market during the 1940’s. Most homes in St. Catharines and other cities throughout the Greater Toronto Area and southern Ontario are equipped with microwave ovens. The first microwave ovens were extremely bulky and very expensive. However, they have evolved into more compact machines that are extremely affordable. Long considered a technological miracle, microwave ovens use radiation to generate heat and can cook or reheat foods in a matter of minutes.
Depending on the brand, make, and model, this handy appliance has a life expectancy ranging between 5 and 10 years. Interestingly enough, an Alpha Appliance Repair preventative maintenance and microwave repair plan will ensure that the device runs at peak efficiency and could possibly extend its lifespan. Because of the fact that they operate using radiation and are powered by electricity, the installation, maintenance, and repair of your microwave should be entrusted to our experienced technicians. They have the experience and expertise to repair your microwave quickly and safely.
Before contacting us for preventative maintenance or microwave repair services, it’s important to let us know what type of microwave you have in your Ontario home. We are experienced at repairing the following types:
Built-in microwave ovens – these are typically installed above a stove, have a drop-down door that opens like an oven door, and seamlessly integrate with your kitchen cabinetry. Their growing popularity is attributed to their space-saving design.
Countertop microwave ovens – as the name implies, this style rests on your kitchen counter and are available in a wide range of sizes and wattages. Despite being one of the more popular types of microwaves available today, they decrease the amount of usable counter space that you have and have no ventilation system.
Drawer style microwave ovens – we oftentimes see these installed below a kitchen countertop a wall oven. Their height and slide-out function makes them convenient for all members of the family to use.
Over-the-range microwave ovens – once again, as the name implies, this style is mounted above your range and also serves as the hood above your stovetop. They are very popular because of their functionality and space-saving characteristics.
Furthermore, the Alpha Appliance Repair will only use genuine replacement parts when repairing your microwave oven.
