As of 2014, most replacement parts for the Ewave microwave cost between $3 and $40, although electronic parts such as the main control board cost more, often between $60 and $80. Most parts can be purchased online or in hardware stores. Because the Ewave is complex and contains numerous parts, it may be necessary to hire a repair person to fix a broken microwave.
Microwave ovens have been used as household appliances since the late 1970s. They work by passing microwave radiation through the water molecules present in food. As of 2014, the non-ionized microwave radiation used in microwave ovens is not known to be dangerous to human health, and the same is true for consumption of foods heated with microwave radiation. Microwave radiation is also used in broadcasting and telecommunication, radio astronomy, satellite communication, and navigation.
