Quick Appliance: Microwave Cleaning for Longevity.

We are so glad you chose Quick Appliance as an appliance outlet Colorado.

We love serving Fort Collins and the rest of the state with friendly service, expertise and exceptional appliances. Did you know that Quick Appliance also does repairs?

While we have experienced techs, great warranties and other great things that come with our repairs, we want you to keep your appliances lasting as long as possible. That is why we recommend quality care and cleaning of all of your appliances—and we want to start with that microwave.

Microwaves can last for as long as ten years with proper care—and they can even be repaired.

We also recommend keeping them as clean as possible so that food build up doesn’t prevent the equipment from functioning.

Here is how you keep your microwave clean:


-Use a half cup of vinegar and pour it in a “microwave safe” bowl.

-Dilute it with water and add a bit of lemon juice.

-Cook the water on high in the microwave for 2 minutes.  

-Let stand for a minute and then remove the bowl.

-Then, with a damp sponge, wipe out the food particles and other leftover gunk.


By following these steps, this simple solution will loosen all of the contents from the inside of the microwave that have been cooked on over time.

Also, go through and make sure you clean carefully around the turntable and light fixtures—the turntable is one of the most common breakages in a microwave. Go around the outside of the microwave and make sure that the power cord, vent for the fan and other parts are clean and working properly.

Quick Appliance has a Fort Collins appliance parts store that can help you replace it and keep it working strong. If you notice a problem don’t hesitate to call Quick Appliance. We will be there to make sure you have working appliances where and when you need them.
