Panasonic Microwave Maintenance & Cleaning

Maintaining your built in Panasonic microwave means that you should keep it as clean as possible, and this includes the outside. This will help to prevent hazards and prolong the life of the appliance. Here are some maintenance tips to help ensure that you give your Panasonic microwave oven a thorough cleaning.

Don’t forget to scrub the inside of the unit with a wet cloth or rag after each use. You can also use a gentle cleaner if there’s food stuck on the inside walls or on the turntable, but always avoid harsh chemicals. For extra dirty microwaves, it can be helpful to heat up a cup of water in the microwave long enough for it to create steam. You really need to keep the inside of your microwave clean because residue from food spills that coat the inside of your Panasonic microwave can cause sparks and potential fire hazards. If you notice obvious damage, such as burn holes inside the microwave, stop using it and call one of our technicians as soon as you can for Panasonic microwave repair service in Maryland, Washington, DC, Arlington, Virginia, and Gaithersburg.

Clean the outside of your Panasonic microwave in the same detailed fashion as you clean the inside. If you decide to use a spray bottle to clean your microwave, be careful when you clean around the door latch. Ultimately, you want to avoid getting water or moisture in openings that can create problems if they get wet. The touchpad is another place that can be easily damaged if moisture gets trapped underneath it leading to problems with the buttons. If you can’t accurately program your microwave using its buttons then the entire unit is essentially rendered useless.

Panasonic Microwave Inspection

In addition to routinely cleaning your microwave, you should check your microwave once and a while to look for any obvious damage. Besides giving the inside of the microwave a visual inspection, look for excess wear and tear to both the cord and plug. Next make sure that the plug also fits the outlet properly, since a loose plug can damage the outlet or the plug itself. If your built–in or over–the–range microwave has overheated, make sure you are keeping the vents as clean as possible. Poor ventilation can potentially cause overheating problems with your microwave. Always call us if you are having problems with your cord, plug, or if you’ve experienced any overheating issues.

Another way to tell whether or not you may need a repair is to listen for strange or loud sounds coming from your microwave. Any type of squealing sound typically indicates that your microwave needs a new belt. Scratching sounds are usually caused by a bad motor. Your Panasonic microwave normally makes a very distinct, low noise when it’s running so any unusual sounds will be very obvious. Call us for service the moment you notice any strange sounds and stop running the unit right away.
