Do you want to learn more about the importance of regular maintenance for your appliances, including your microwave oven? From the importance of routine appliance maintenance to practical tips on how to properly take care of your microwave oven, the team at Ateliers G Paquette, your appliance experts in Montreal, explains it all to you. We'll also give you a few tips on appliance repair.


Regular Maintenance of Your Microwave Oven Can Reduce Risks to Your Health

While it is true that a microwave oven releases a certain amount of electromagnetic radiation, this amount is generally acceptable and not harmful to the health, provided the appliance is taken care of properly.

Here are a few things you can do to prevent radiation leaks:

  • Thorough cleaning of the gasket, but without abrasive products

  • Maintenance, and repairs, if necessary, of the oven door, gasket, hinges, and latches by a qualified technician

  • Use of the oven in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions

  • Continuous use of the oven safety lock


Also, older models of microwave ovens used to occasionally cause disruptions to their users' pacemakers. However, the new models available on the market are now equipped with an interference filtering system, which reduces this problem.


Reduce the Risk of Fire with Regular Maintenance of Your Microwave Oven

Although it is rare, microwave ovens can sometimes present a fire hazard if they are not used or taken care of properly. Here are a few things you can do to avoid this:

  • Clean your microwave oven after each use to avoid food and grease build-ups.

  • Inspect the power cord for signs of damage.

  • Only use containers labelled for microwave use.


Reduce Your Repair Costs with Routine Maintenance of Your Microwave Oven

If you need appliance repair services, don't hesitate to call upon Ateliers G Paquette in Montreal. That being said, regular maintenance of your microwave oven can significantly reduce your repair costs.


How to Properly Take Care of Your Microwave Oven?

  • Unplug your appliance before you start cleaning.

  • Do not use benzene or thinner to clean the outside of your oven.

  • Use an exclusive cleaner for the window of the appliance.

  • Using a soft sponge and a non-abrasive cleaner, clean the inside of the oven and the cooking area.

  • Afterwards, wipe with a dry cloth.
