Whirlpool Microwave Maintenance & Cleaning

In order to properly maintain your Whirlpool microwave, you need to clean the inside and outside of the unit on a regular basis. This will help to prevent the need to replace the microwave earlier than you should need to. Here are some basic cleaning tips to help you maintain your Whirlpool microwave.

Make sure that you scour inside the microwave very regularly. You can also use a gentle detergent or rubbing alcohol if there’s extra residue inside the microwave, but avoid heavy cleaners or solvents because they could damage the parts. If the mess inside your microwave is excessive, heat up a cup of water inside your microwave for a few minutes to basically give your Whirlpool microwave steam cleaning that should help to loosen up stuck on food. You may also try putting in a few teaspoons of lemon juice for better results. The reason this type of regular care is necessary is because any excess buildup on the inside of the microwave can cause arcing. If you notice any burn holes or other damages inside the microwave, do not use it until you’ve have service from one of our microwave repair technicians.

When cleaning the outside of your microwave you need to make sure you don’t get the door latch wet when using a spray bottle. Also make sure that you don’t allow any of the liquid to seep through the ventilation holes or other openings. Because the touchpad can easily get moisture trapped inside it and cause operating issues, it is another area to be careful when cleaning.

Whirlpool Microwave Inspection

Aside from regular cleanings for your Whirlpool microwave, you should visually check your microwave over periodically to see if there are any noticeable problems. Inspect the inside the microwave for cracks or damages, and then make sure there’s no damage to your cord or plug. You’ll also need to test the plug to ensure that it fits securely into the outlet. Additionally, if you keep the ventilation holes clear, it will decrease the potential for overheating. Give us a call if your microwave oven has overheated or if you’ve experienced any other problems with your Whirlpool microwave oven.

You may need one of our technicians to replace a part if there are unusual noises coming from your microwave. A squealing noise could mean you need a belt replacement while grinding sounds could indicate a bad motor. You will normally hear some noise when using your microwave, of course, you should stop using your microwave and call us the moment you notice any changes in the sounds your microwave makes. The earlier you call the better, because a small repair could prevent major damage or more costly repairs down the road.
