There is a small appliance repair shop almost to the next corner (east side) up the street that runs down beside the Oxxo on the highway in Ajijic. I don't know if he speaks English because I've always spoken to him in Spanish. His shop is full of small kitchen appliances with identifying tags on them. Worth a try. You will have to go up the one way street beside La Montana plaza, make a right at the first corner and then another right at the next corner.. shop on your left a couple of doors down. It is very hard to find parking so go with two people so one can keep driving around the block and pick you up after you've dropped it off. He is very reasonably priced. Suerte. Here are some Spanish words that you may need. "Descompuesto" (broken), "Rotado" (also broken) and the easiest "No funcione". Or he may speak English.

I think I may have screwed up the instructions because Colon is the street beside La Montana plaza and it is one way going the wrong way. So go to the next street that goes north and make that two blocks going to the right to get to the street that goes down beside the Oxxo (with Intercam beside it).

I also used a word that means rotated in Spanish. It should be "roto" not "rotado". Close but no cigar.

Is the small shop north or south of the OXXO?  I'm trying to narrow it down with Google Maps.

Head to TOB for CORRECT instructions on location from PNR1. I realized when I was in bed last night that I had made yet another error and didn't want to fire up the computer again to correct it. I should never give detailed instructions after 10 pm when I'm tired.

Thanks to Mudgirl for the Spanish correction and to PNR1 for posting the following on TOB. Oy vey!

Oxxo has nothing to do with it. At the LAST traffic light heading west, turn right and next corner right, and at virtually on the next corner, glance corner at your right, and you will see it. Yip parking is not too handy.

Thanks one and all...... I too have learned about the timing of posting. Not before my 2nd. coffee in the morning or after my 2nd. rum and coke in the late afternoon.

I have checked Walmart, Soriana, Costco and Amazon and buy a new one for 2500 pesos. In the sober light of day, it makes more sense to replace it.

You can put your broken one out on sidewalk with a sign saying No Funciona. Someone will take it off your hands.

I just checked with the Ajijic Recycle Centre and they will recycle ​​​​​​​microwaves.

In many cases, it may actually be more cost effective to repair a microwave if the issue is minor and the appliance is relatively new. However, if the microwave is over ten years old or has developed several issues, it may be more affordable to purchase a new microwave.

What is the life expectancy of a microwave magnetron?
about 2000 hours
Most microwave magnetrons last about 2000 hours. Low-quality microwave magnetrons won't last as long. If your microwave does not heat properly or dies, it's possible the magnetron died. If so you're better off replacing the whole microwave.

BTW, I prefer microwaves with Inverter technology, superior to regular units.
