That's why we offer comprehensive microwave oven repair services for residents in San Diego, CA, and the surrounding areas.

Common Microwave Problems We Fix 

There are a lot of things that can go wrong with your microwave oven. Our technicians are highly trained and experienced in all aspects of microwave appliance repair. We are reliable, so you can count on us for any microwave repairs or maintenance. So, here are some of the most common problems we fix:

1. Door Won't Close or Open by Itself

There are a few things that can cause it, including a faulty door switch, door latch, or hinges. 

2. Display Is Blank or Doesn't Show Anything 

If your microwave ovens display is blank or doesn't show anything, it could be caused by a bad circuit board. At times the buttons may also not be responsible if the membrane switch or the control board is defective. Call our microwave repair professionals to get your appliance checked. 

3. Oven Won't Start Up or Turn On 

Usually, this is brought up by a defective door switch or circuit board. It can also be that the thermal fuse or ceramic fuse needs replacement. 

4. No Heat Coming from the Oven 

If your microwave oven isn't heating up, it could be caused by a bad magnetron or voltage diode. It is very important to feel safe at home, so don't hesitate to contact our microwave repair specialists. 

5. Microwave Plate Doesn't Spin 

This may be due to a worn-out or burned motor. If the motor is fine, then the main control board may be faulty.  

6. Microwave Bulb Doesn't Light 

Faulty bulb socket and bad wiring are mainly the cause of bulbs, not lighting. 

7. Microwave Doesn't Shut Off

Possible causes may be due to a faulty door interlock switch or a bad smartboard. 

8. Microwave Runs and Then Stops 

This can be caused by a faulty door switch, defective touchpad, transformer, or fan motor.   

9. Microwave Making Noise

Possible causes include a faulty plate or drive motor, bad Magnetron, or high voltage diode. It can also be due to a defective cooling fan. Make sure you contact our microwave repair technician to examine the issue.

Alex came out as promised when promised and made the repair on our icemaker. I appreciate his prompt and professional service.

June 14, 2022

I walked into a very wet kitchen floor this morning and quickly determined our refrigerator was leaking. I reached out to Big City via Yelp and within 10 min heard back from Val. We discussed a window of time we might meet later today and boom! the technician (Alex T) not only showed up on time but a bit early. He quickly went to work and the problem was solved within 90 minutes. Very efficient & fairly priced

I contacted them through Yelp at 9pm and they were the first to respond. Set up an appointment for 10-1 the next day and the technician arrived at 11am. His name was Ozzy and he was very nice, clean-cut, and respectful. Took about 40 minutes to diagnose the problem, get the part from his car, and get the oven working again.

My dishwasher has been a stinky nightmare these last few months. The water wasn’t draining, just sitting causing a disgusting smell at least once a week. I finally decided enough was enough and reached out to some appliance companies in my area of San Diego. This company responded quickly and their price estimate was fair. I was able to get s next day appointment at noon. Highly recommend!

This company was referred to me by my home warranty carrier. Leo was out the same day to repair my washer that was leaking. Badabing badaboom – fixed!! Professional – clean – knowledgable – great service!! Thank you Leo!!

Nick was amazing! He was polite, professional, knowledgeable, and fixed my dryer issue in the one visit which I did not expect! He also gave me some tips and some guidance about keeping my dryer in good shape with proper use. I would highly recommend working with them! Thank you, Nick:)!!

I have a 10 year old Kitchenaid Stove that the broiler quit working. Mark from Big City came out and new right away what was wrong. He had the correct parts with him and fixed it quickly. He was very polite, clean and tidy. Would use them again for any appliance repair.

November 3, 2021

Great job! My washer wouldn’t agitate or spin and it had been previously fixed by Best Buy when it was under warranty for the same issue. This time it is fixed and so quiet! I feel like Big City made it better than when a Best Buy fixed it! Thanks to the tech who came this am!! Happily not going to the laundry mat anymore!

November 3, 2021

Both our washer and dryer needed repair at around the same time, so we tried Yelp to get a quote.  It was a Sunday morning and we were pleased that Big City responded within minutes, offering to send a technician to do a diagnostic the same afternoon at a very reasonable price.  Vlad arrived on time and spent an hour with us, thoroughly going over each appliance.

February 27, 2021

Surprised to see a GE range microwave die after a year of home ownership.  Since it matched the other kitchen appliances I figured I’d give repair service a try to avoid having to buy a more expensive non-matching unit. To my further surprise Big City Appliace Repair came out to pull the unit & repaired same day for a low flat fee.  Service tech Mark was professional courteous and fast.  I’d use this team again!  Good luck

Very satisfied with their services and customer service! Val didn’t take too long to figure out what the problem was with my 20 y/o fridge. He’s is super knowledgeable! Excellent service. Very professional, did a great job at fixing our stove. The serviceman was awesome!
