Microwave Systems: Types of Repairs
Since microwave systems are large and complex machines, the types of repairs we offer range from simple component replacements, to more involved repairs involving the system as a whole. We understand downtime is expensive and we do everything we can to make sure you have the part you need BEFORE you need it. However, this isn’t always possible, and in those situations we will work to expedite shipping and minimize your downtime. In the event that you need a technician to visit your facility for more extensive repairs, we bend over backwards to make ourselves available.
The types of repairs needed in microwave systems may involve any of the following parts:
- Water lines
- Water Load
- Belt support
- Display or PLC
- Circuit breakers
- Solenoid controllers
To prevent issues from happening to any parts of your system, we recommend annual or bi-annual visits from FMT certified technicians to keep your microwave systems running at peak efficiency. In addition to on-site microwave system repairs, we offer troubleshooting so we can diagnose the issues remotely. We troubleshoot via Ethernet access to PLC controls.
Repairs vs. Upgrades
Over time, if you’re constantly repairing your microwave system – it may make more sense to upgrade certain parts of your microwave system versus repairing it. Regular maintenance and keeping a supply of spare parts on-site may keep your system up and running for decades. However, no matter how disciplined the repair schedule, it may get more costly over time. So, you don’t necessarily have to purchase an entirely new unit. Instead, you may want to consider an upgrade instead. Upgrades range from replacing the generator, to changing the displays, to upgrading the filament.
