Repair of a Smeg Microwave
Fix your microwave by troubleshooting the issues you are having. (profil féminin image by Francis Lempérière from

The Smeg microwave is used to cook food in a hurry. If you are having problems with your Smeg microwave, you might be tempted to hire a repair person or to just toss it in the trash. You don't have to hire anybody or buy a new unit. You can troubleshoot the issue yourself with little knowledge of the subject. Most of the time, a microwave only needs a little bit of attention before it is back up to its full potential.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • New power cord
  • Water
  • Rag

  1. 1

    Go to the back of the unit and make sure that it is plugged into a working electrical socket.

  2. 2

    Use your fingers to go over the power cord. If you find any breaks or frays, replace the cord immediately through a hardware store.

  3. 3

    Open the microwave and check the turntable. The turntable is the glass plate the food spins on. Make sure that the plate is resting properly on the turntable.

  4. 4

    Check over the door assembly. If the door does not shut properly, a sensor will disable the microwave from turning on.

  5. 5

    Pull the roller out of the microwave. This is the plastic piece that the glass plate rests on. Soak the roller in warm water and then clean it with a rag to get any food particles off it. If the roller isn't working properly, food will not cook correctly.

  6. 6

    Clean the interior walls of the microwave if your food is not being heated properly. If the walls are dirty, the heat will not disperse evenly.

  7. 7

    Wipe down the touch pad if the buttons do not work or are intermittent in function.
