The microwave went to heaven, I think.

March 23rd, 2011 at 07:06 pm

Today was perhaps the last heated meal with our four year old microwave from Costco. It was the panasonic/inverter model and was working pretty well and got a lot of use. Plus, I'm not the most gentle with mechanical things too. I have that "Non mechanical midas touch" I'd say. So, I went to heat some left overs after swimming today and it lit up and then just went blank. I checked the normal things like the plug etc. I also did the ever famous "hit the side of it a few times" move. I also did the "push the buttons harder" strategy. Both failed to work. I ended up heating my meal in a pan. I'm going to have my husband take a look at it and hopefully he can fix it. If not, off to microwave heaven for the inverter. The car also still needs to get fixed, plus I knocked the right side mirror off again. This time I clipped the side of a Fedex truck. The truck was fine, but the poor mirror just dangled there. I got it all ducked taped up again. Hooray for duct tape, but boo to my driving abilities. Anyway, my husband will come home earlier so I can apply for the server position tomorrow. Perhaps if I get the job they will let me take home left over food and I won't have to cook or heat up stuff? lol.

    4 years doesn't seem like a long time for an appliance. Perhaps check the outlet by plugging in a small appliance like toaster to see if it heats up. Sometimes just unplugging and re-plugging makes a difference.

    Microwave ovens can be repaired but it's usually more cost effective to buy a new one.

    Yes, on the outlet there is usually a red reset button that sometimes gets tripped. Push that and try again. Otherwise, on a positive note, it is better not to eat food that was cooked in a microwave, lol, so I keep hearing anyways.
