Frigidaire Microwave Maintenance & Cleaning
Maintaining your Frigidaire microwave mostly involves regularly cleaning the inside and outside of the unit. This will help to prevent costly repairs and extend the life of your microwave. Here are some basic guidelines to help ensure that you give your microwave oven a thorough cleaning.
You should clean the internal cavity with a damp cloth each time you use your Frigidaire microwave. You can also use a mild detergent if it’s extra sticky inside the unit, but avoid heavy cleaners or solvents. As with any piece of electrical equipment, rubbing alcohol is best to use for cleaning because it evaporates quickly. For heavy duty jobs, heat up a cup of water inside your microwave for five minutes or so. This essentially gives your Frigidaire microwave a steam cleaning, and you can add a small amount of lemon juice or vinegar for even better results. Food that gets caked on the inside walls of the microwave can cause sparks and potential fire hazards. If you notice any burn holes or other damages in the main cavity, stop using your microwave and call one of our microwave repair technicians.
Clean the outside of your Frigidaire microwave in the same detailed fashion as you clean the inside. Avoid getting the door latches wet if you are using a spray bottle with a mild cleaner. Also, make sure that you don’t allow any of the liquid to seep through the ventilation holes or other openings. The touchpad is another place that can be easily damaged if moisture gets trapped underneath it. This can lead to operating problems with your Frigidaire microwave.
Frigidaire Microwave Inspection
In addition to routinely cleaning your microwave, you will also want to give it a visual inspection on occasion. Aside from checking inside the microwave for cracks or damages, also check the plug and cord to make sure there’s no physical damage to either one. Next make sure that the plug fits the outlet properly since a loose plug can damage the outlet and the plug itself.
If the ventilation holes on your microwave are dirty or clogged, this can potentially cause overheating problems with the electrical components in your microwave. Keeping your ventilation holes clean is important in preventing the potential for overheating issues. Call us if you suspect that there are damages to your cord, plug, outlet, or anything that may have been caused by overheating.
You can also listen for strange or loud noises to know whether or not you may need a repair or replacement part. The belt may need to be replaced if you hear a loud squealing sound. If there’s a scratching or grinding noise, the motor may need to be lubed or replaced. While your microwave does make some noise while it’s operating, call us if you hear any of these unusual noises. Lubricating or replacing a minor part could also keep you from needing expensive repairs or having to replace your Frigidaire microwave entirely.
