Is it worth reparing old microwaves?
I try not to apologies but sometimes do it. not because its right thing but it benefits me.
New Mantra for idiots Just ask RFD before searching answers anywhere.

ya it's a fun project, why not? You seem pretty handy since when I took my microwave apart I didnt even think to salvage the motor for it. I didnt even see it when I opened the microwave.

You've already done the hard part (diagnosis and disassembly), that would stump most.
They have $18 microwaves?

Thrift store or salvation army are your choices.

That's the current MW we have. Moving into the new-to-us house with a dead OTR MW that was not OTR. Found a Kenmore MW on the side of the road. Only problem with it is the mechanical dial timer won't count down if set above 5 mins.

My parents still have a microwave from the '80s and its working just fine. BTW> While you are in there, I would give the internals a good cleaning as the oils and grease from the warming of the foods builds up after a while.callernamet wrote: ↑ good responses by all.
Yes it is fun taking things apart as it comes easily for me. As shabby said I gave them model number and they are checking stock and compatibility of that motor.
Ca not believe the model is from 1996. imo worth spending $20 or so for the repair. Part availability is to be checked at Scarborough location which is not for me.

I did and that is how it ran for few more years. Last time I had problem It just wont power on. like this the fuse blew. It costed about $2 or so to replace that. So $2 for about 8 years is not bad.

Or maybe just buy a new microwave for $50.

The fuse is actually the most common issue with microwaves for the past few decades. I used to work in electronics retail and when we used to send microwaves off for warranty repairs, the vast majority (over 80%) of the issues were from blown thermal ceramic fuses which while not widely known, they are easily available at Canadian Tire.
