Should you Repair or Replace your Microwave?

Sometimes, a broken microwave just isn’t worth the repair. If your microwave is getting older or if your repair needs are extensive, your Candu Pro will likely recommend replacement, especially because microwaves can be one of the cheaper appliances to replace. In some cases, it can be much more cost-effective to buy a new appliance instead of repairing.

If you choose to replace, as a Candu member who selected our flat-fee repair option, you can shop and save on a wide selection of GE Appliances models through our Candu Appliance Upgrade Program. Plus, you’ll get free delivery, installation, and disposal of your old microwave.
