It can be a tough decision to finally give in and replace an applianc in your Gaithersburg home. Consumers will often suffer reduced performance and decreased quality if it means not having to replace items like microwaves. When there’s no getting around a problem, though, how do you decide if you should replace a product, or repair the one you have? Here are some tips.
First of all, consider the age of your appliance. If your Gaithersburg microwave came out of a factory eight years ago or more, it’s probably best to shop for a replacement. Appliances are built to last, but they’re not going to last forever. Check what the projected lifespan of your specific product is. If you got what you paid for, start looking for a replacement.
Also, take into account any warranties you have on the appliance. If you’ve only had you’re microwave for a year or two, chances are it’s still under warranty. Don’t rush off to replace it when you can have it repaired or replaced with the same model for free. If it’s been a few years since the purchase, there may be an extended limited warranty that will cover certain problems your microwave is experiencing. Cover all your warranty bases before even considering a replacement.
Ask yourself an important question. Were you satisfied with your microwave when it was working properly? If not, why bother to repair it? You’ll only be getting, at best, a performance you were never happy with. If your microwave is outdated or doesn’t have the features you want, don’t bother repairing it. Donate that one and purchase the model that will actually satisfy your expectations.
The biggest thing to remember is not to settle. If you haven’t been pleased with your microwave for any reason, treat yourself to a new appliance that will provide all the services that you want. If you’re attached to your microwave and really want to hang onto it, by all means pursue a repair.
