A few weeks ago our microwave went out. I was warming something and suddenly it just stopped. We weren't sure if we should bother having it fixed or just replace it instead. So we went a couple of weeks with no microwave. It wasn't horrible, it was just kind of inconvenient. You really can cook/warm most things on the stove or in the oven - it just takes longer. Anyway, this guy came out took the whole thing apart. He quoted me $191 to fix it and once I gave him the go ahead he replaced a switch and had the whole thing back together and working about 5 minutes later. Cheaper than a new one anyway.
